A pleasant place with a nice pool, but rooms are small (and the toilet paper roll is in an odd spot). I just stayed one night as I was on my way south. I don't think there is a lot to do close by, but there are some excellent restaurants at hand. I went to Citrus and had a phenomenal meal. I'd stay again if I was in the area.

We were passing through so stayed just one night. A gorgeous spot, the gardens are quite spectacular and the breakfast was delicious. We deliberately chose one of the more basic rooms as we were there just a short time.... had we stayed longer we would have gone for a villa and they did look fabulous. Thanks Clare and the team for your warm welcome. Highly recommended.

We were there with a group of friends on a nature tour. It was the perfect location for us. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. The grounds are a treat in themselves. And the best part was Mikey & Diana who made us feel like family & treasured friends! Will definitely return!

Just stayed here with some friends for a few days and it was an amazing experience. Mickey and Diana are the best hosts anyone could ask for. They bend over backwards to make everyone feel at home and well cared for. The place is spotlessly clean, beautiful pool, beautiful grounds and lots of fabulous birds. I would recommend it to anyone who's looking for a romantic getaway or just a place to hang out with friends or family.

My husband and I stopped at Hotel el Mono Feliz during a road trip to Drakes Bay. It was late, raining, and we knew we had to find a place to stay. Because of the good reviews, we decided to stay here. We arrived late, unannounced, with no reservation. Diana and Mickey couldn't have been more accomodating. They took us to our room with had a small kitchenette, dining table, and two very comfortable beds. The pillows felt new and the linens were soft. But the best part was the next day when Diana brought breakfast to my room! It was delicious and even included banana bread. We then had some time to spare so we checked out the grounds. People are often quick to stay at big resorts, but usually those resorts don't have mature plants or are in the best locations. Hotel el Mono Feliz has a mature garden in the back with royal palms adjacent to a river. There is a rancho where you can swing on a hammock and watch white face monkeys overhead! A cute coati even passed us by. It was so relaxing there, I took a nap. There are a few important things that make a stay average to excellent. And that is a clean room, soft bedding, and people who are just flat out nice running the place. Nothing is ever perfect when traveling, but a smiling face upon your arrival can change everything. Next time I plan another road trip, I will certainly stay there again.
