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...

We stayed at Monteverde Villa Lodge for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay! Heiner and Ana are wonderful hosts and made us feel incredibly welcome!

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

HeIner and Ana are gracious and helpful hosts. Tours picked us up at the door. Guides recommended were great. Reasonably priced and clean accommodation. Breakfast hit the spot. Certainly would stay again.

The 6 individual cabinas were built 5 years ago and are spotlessly clean and lovingly decorated. Each unit has a small kitchen with plenty of light and a view of the garden. Breakfast was included, and was the best hotel breakfast we have had in many years. Owned by a Costa Rican couple who clearly enjoy being of service to... More

Spacious, spotlessly clean bungalows in a small garden in a quiet location. Fridge, small kitchen area, microwave, telly. A family business run by a very friendly and helpful couple. Excellent value for money in Santa Elena.

The room was basic but clean and had everything we needed including kitchenette. Breakfast was served in a charming small dining area and was delicious. We chose the 'typical' (local) fare. The host was extremely helpful in suggesting restaurants, tours and transportation. The location was quiet yet walkable into Santa Elena.
