Very comfortable, spacious and clean rooms, delicious typical breakfast and fruits as well. The staff is super efficient, they'll organize all your tours in no time! Good location, close to Santa Elena downtown! A great experience overall!

A small out of the way B & B just 5 minutes walking distance to the town centre. The hospitality is second to none, the breakfast ( included) was more than enough to get you moving for the day. The rooms are clean and well thought out. My wife and I shared a room with our daughter and her husband... More

Heiner and his staff treated my wife and I like family throughout our stay in Monteverde. In fact, even before we arrived, he assisted in helping us set up tours and transportation and was always helpful and prompt with his responses. While his hospitality was exceptional, the convenience of the location of the lodge was also excellent. Walking distance to... More

Heiner, Ana and others will ensure you will have a good stay. They were always very pleasant and accommodating to all of my family. They booked our tours with the best local guides - Monteverde, Coffee/Sugar/Rum Plantation, zip lines and even haircuts for me and my son at Eddies. They provided great directions and advice for local restaurants and our... More

We arrived in Santa Elena without a confirmed reservation. After going to a few other hotels, a hotel owner made a call to the Monteverde Villa Lodge and they had one room left. The room was BEAUTIFUL! Our casita had a bathroom with WARM WATER, a kitchen with an island to eat at. There was a beautiful garden view out... More

We enjoyed a lot our stay in this hotel (we stayed 2 nights in main building room). Room was very nice and spacious, wi-fi connection very good, breakfast perfect! Dinner in the restaurant was also perfect. Staff was very efficient, friendly and knowledgeable about the organic concept of this place. Excellent!

This is a family run hotel. Very pleasant and accommodating people. In response to the Tico who refers to these folks as pirates, I respectfully add that the cheerful police officer who pulled me over and asked for cash would not furnish a receipt either.If one wishes to stand by their principles and not participate in an option considered illegal...

The hotel is located not far from the city center so you could easily walk. The personnel was very friendly and very helpful. They explained us before which road do we had to take, offered us a welcome drink and organized several excursions and canopy tour. We also enjoyed the breakfast. Thanks a lot.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights whilst travelling around Costa Rica on our honeymoon. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the centre of Santa Elena, which is a positive as it is quiet and has a nice 'jungle' feel to it. Upon arrival we received a warm welcome and an explanation about everything the... More

We really wanted to love this place since the owner is very nice but frankly VillaLodge is ok but not a place I would recommend. The walls in the rooms are paper-thin so it feels and sounds like your next door are actually in your own room. The rooms are a little dark and worn down (don´t get me wrong... More
