We stayed in Monteverde Villa Lodge 3 nights July 15, 16 and 17 2011 -- it is the rainy season, combined with tropical depression from the pacific --- it poured most of the time -- nevertheless we had a GREAT time. Villa Lodge is perfectly located -- out of the center of town in a nice quite verdant place (butterflies... More

Monteverde Villa Lodge Santa Elena This review is difficult to write because the Monteverde Villa Lodge is family-owned, family-run. Bad or average reviews can hurt these kinds of businesses, especially when they are mean-spirited or unwarranted. But there were pros and cons to our stay and I will do my best to sort them out fairly. It cannot be denied... More

We stayed at the Villa Lodge for three nights on our honeymoon trip to Costa Rica. It was really lovely and Heiner and Ana couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. They advised us about tours and booked them for us, cooked very tasty breakfasts and were very tolerant of us practicing our terrible Spanish. We spent the first night... More

We stayed at heiner's place for two nights on June 2011, and would have stayed for another week! Beautiful, quite, big and very clean cabins, together with the short distance from the center of the town made this stay a perfect one! Heiner and his family are the nicest and most welcoming hosts we met in our tour in costa... More

We stayed at the Villa Lodge May 22 - 24. The room looked just like it did in the pictures and was spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were delicious and the price was right. Heiner was very helpful in helping us choose restaurants and book excursions - the zip line company even picked us up in front of the hotel which... More

We stayed at Monteverde Villa Lodge for 2 nights, May 13 & 14. The rustic cabins are large and relaxing with a small area outside with chairs and bench. The hummingbirds zip around and I was fortunate enough to see a blue morpho butterfly. Heiner, Ana, and their young son are very friendly and take pleasure helping their guests. Santa... More

I had a great time here, it's clean and as other reviews have said..the hosts are extremely helpful and friendly. All tours I took picked me up outside which was very convenient. It is also only a short walk into the 'town'. Had I been closer to the town I think it would have been noisy so Im glad I... More

I stayed three nights at the Monteverde Villa Lodge and used is at a base to explore the cloudforests and local sights (which are amazing). Heiner and Ana were fantastic hosts and couldn't do enough to make sure my stay was enjoyable. Cabins are large, clean and comfortable. The Lodge is about 10 minutes walk from town, but taxis are...

Heiner and Anna were wonderful nice hosts. They were very helpful and friendly. Their son was absolutely adorable! Their hospitality and family atmosphere was a nice change in the middle of trip to Costa Rica from staying at large hotels. Rooms were very clean and breakfast was good.

Believe the other reviews that say what great hosts Heiner and Ana are. They are gracious and more than helpful. The rooms are spacious, spotless and large. Located only a ten minute walk from town on a quiet cul-de-sac. Excellent value for the money.
