This place was a great place to stay while in Monteverde. Both Ana, Heiner and their little boy were very friendly and helpful. Ana was great for providing hot coffee and cookies when getting back from tours! The breakfasts were good and the hotel is a short walk from town so very easy to wander into the village for dinner.... More

A very short cab ride away from the rainforest park this place is the bargain of this area! Close enough into town for an easy walk for evening eats. The rooms are clean, spacious and accomodating. The owner family literally bend over backwards to accomodate and breakfast is a real treat. Free computer usage in the reception area and always... More

Without a doubt this was the best place we stayed in Costa Rica from the standpoint of how we were treated. We felt like an old friend returning for a visit. Both Heiner and Ana were extremely friendly and were always there to assist with advice or to arrange anything we needed. Imagine the owner of a Hotel coming to... More

We had a great two day stay at Monteverde Villa Lodge in Santa Elana. Heiner and Ana were most gracious as hosts. In addition to providing a clean and comfortable room, they served a superb breakfast and provided information about local tours and restaurants. Genuine, warm Costa Rican hospitality at its best!! The Lodge is within comfortable walking distance of... More

You couldn't ask for a better lodge for a better value. The owners were absolutely wonderful and charming hosts. From booking our tours and making recommendations, to providing us with extra blankets due to the chilly weather, our stay was fantastic. The location is also convenient, although beware that taxi drivers tended to confuse it with another Monteverde Lodge &... More

We were absolutely delighted with this hotel. The location was fantastic, we were upgraded free of charge and the owners couldn't do enough to help their guests (even organising a taxi to pick up a takeaway meal for my husband who had returned from a night hike). The hotel is located a 10 min walk away from the town but... More

The owners of this lodge are fantastic - super friendly, hospitable, helpful, and just make you feel at home. Can't say enough great things about them. This family is wonderful. We stayed in a room on the 2nd floor. The room itself was basic and clean but the howling of the wind was distracting. Our guess is the cabins on... More

We stayed in one of the cabins which was spacious and immaculately clean. It is situated at the edge of Santa Elena, quiet but within easy reach of all facilites. Ana abd Heiner extremely helpful and made you feel very welcome; even to the extent of making me a homemade remedy for my cold which I had at the time!... More

We booked the Monteverde Villa Lodge a day before arriving into town. Since the hotel is just outside the main downtown block (just a few minutes walk away), it was quiet and peaceful. The owners were so sweet and helpful, giving us recommendations of where to eat and recommended tours to take. Since we don't speak Spanish well enough, the... More
