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.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa Lodge. Great location to all that the Cloud forest has to offer. The Proprietor and his staff were always there to help us with directions and setting up day trips. We would highly recommend the Villa Lodge. Jon,Carol and Mari Minneapolis

We stayed 3 nights and were very pleased. Heiner and his wife Ana were very gracious and helpful. They take great pride in being good hosts. We could not have asked for more from them. Our cabin was on the first floor, and unfortunately this meant some bugs. The second night we had a visit from a very large scorpion.... More

We spent 2 nights there and had a wonderful time. The host was friendly and very helpful advising us on activities. The Breakfast was yummy. Traditional rice, beans, eggs and plantain; pancakes and eggs, or toast and eggs. Close to town. I would highly recommend this B&B!

We didn't plan to check this place out originally, since the prices seemed high for us. High season has its advantages and we were able to get a very nice room for a reasonable price. The owners and staff were very nice and speak fluent English. They had a lot of good tips to share and helped with some arrangements... More

We loved our 4 night stay at this B&B. The wind was amazing, the trees around must be very strong to adapt to constant gustiness without losing leaves. Our room was a cabin with two large beds, a small kitchenette and a sizable bathroom with a good shower. The owners were gracious and helpful and accommodated our low carb breakfast... More

After five nights we are leaving this beautiful place. Every thing a traveller could want in location, service, cleanliness and value-for-price is five star. What more can you say? Since reviews must be 200 characters, I think I'm there!!!
