We stayed here during our visit to the Monteverde Rain Forest and to zipline. We felt very taken care of and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! This property consists of individual cabins a 10 minute walk on dirt roads to "downtown". The walk is a bit dusty and no sidewalk. No problem if you wear good shoes. Dirt roads are... More

What an amazing find. This small simple lodge was recommended by another local lodge when it was full. We only stayed one short night but I wished I could stay more. The owners were lovely, the room was clean the location was just outside of town and the breakfast was delicious. Anna set us up with an amazing tour guide... More

We stayed for two nights during last February in Monteverde Villa Lodge. The hospitality of Heiner and Ana is great. The room was extremely spacious and very clean. We got very helpful advices from the couple on restaurants in Santa Elena, as well as, on sites around the city. They booked for us visits (including transportation) to the hanging bridges... More

Heiner and Ana get customer service!!! From a welcome drink to made-to-order breakfasts, what sets this place apart is their customer-focused approach to hotel management. They book your tours, get you a coffee, provide helpful tips, etc. all with true friendliness and desire to serve. The property is about a 10-minute walk to the town center. Rooms are large, the...

You couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Rooms are clean, comfortable bed, hot water and quiet night's sleep. Breakfast is amazing, cooked to order and served with a smile. A short cab ride to town costs under $2 or you can walk with no problem. Tours will pick you up free of charge. Wifi in rooms or computer... More

If you are plannig to go to Costa Rica a trip to Monteverde is a must. Do not rent a car!!! You will have to pay the rental fee and insurance-again (your credit card insurance does not apply). Best is to TAXI and enjoy the drive - and what a view! Many roads are not paved, just dirt and cobble... More

This hotel is located just outside the town of Santa Elena, a five minute walk to the centre. This is great as it's just far enough away to be very quiet in the evenings, but you can still access all the services. Heiner and Ana did everything they could to make us feel incredibly welcome, providing free cups of coffee... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here three nights. We arrived very late, at 2am and Heiner was up to let us into our room. The room was large and air conditioned, the beds were comfortable with extra bedding, and the bathroom was great with a huge shower (with hot water)! The sink ran cold only but the shower was great.... More
