Hotel Montana Monteverde was the first high-end hotel opened in Monteverde and inow considered a comfortable mid-range hotel. Built in 1978 by a Quaker couple from New York, the hotel created quite a stir when it became the first to offer alcohol in this remote Quaker village. Since then, the hotel has changed owners and undergone several facelifts and expansions. The hotel is popular with tour groups as well as individuals and the renewal of these group contracts is evidence that the hotel is maintaining its excellent customer service.
