If you appreciate genuine hospitality then this is the place to stay. The owners are absolutely lovely and so helpful. I don't know if they receive anything for tour recommendations but I hope they do, they certainly don't charge you more and their 3 recommendations that we took (night walk, zip lining and coffee tour) were absolutely fantastic.

From the moment we arrived our hosts made us feel extremely welcome and couldn't do enough to help us. From setting up tours, telling us where to eat and making our stay as comfortable as possible we were really impressed by this small family run lodge. Breakfast was varied and delicious, rooms are pretty basic but comfortable and massive (we... More

We spent 5 nights here and were very pleased. The cabins are gleamingly clean and well maintained. They are only a few feet apart but that's enough to keep you from hearing any noise your neighbors make. The cooked-to-order breakfasts are amazing and substantial enough to keep you going all day. When the manager found out we had half an... More

Our family of four (2 adults plus 11 and 15 year olds) stayed in a family room for two nights. Heiner and Ana were wonderful hosts, and the place is a wonderful little oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Santa Elena. Our room was exceptionally clean, quiet, comfortable, and breakfast was a treat. We have two vegetarians in... More

We spent two nights in one of the cabins. The room was spotless and comfortable, the breakfast delicious, the price unbeatable. Correspondence ahead of time was swiftly and graciously answered. The proprietors also organized our transfers to and from Monteverde, choosing excellent companies in both cases. We were especially impressed with their choice of company for the transfer from La...

My husband and I spent three nights at this Lodge in Feb 2015. While checking in, Ana brought us glasses of refreshing lemonade. She then showed us a map of the village and highlighted restaurants, shopping and area attractions. Our room was clean, quiet and spacious. The breakfasts were great. One morning, when we had to leave very early for... More
