My two-night stay at the lodge inspired me to write my first TripAdvisor review. Heiner and Ana were extremely welcoming and helpful - the best service we had in Costa Rica! We felt right at home in one of the cabin-style rooms. The room was very clean and spacious. The breakfast that was brought into our room each morning was... More

if you want to find nice place with good service and very nice rooms to feel safe im Monteverde (Monteverde it is a place with a lot of clouds and cold - so you need warm place with good people around)

I travelled for 2 weeks in Costa Rica with a friend, and we were delighted by our stay at the MVL. After a long and tiring van ride, we were greeted by the owner, Henar, and his family. They were all very nice, and he immediately gave us great recommendations and even called to set up reservation with local tours.... More

We just got back from a three week stay in Costa Rica. Of these three weeks we chose to spend the last three days at the Monteverde Villa Lodge. The room was cleaned every day and the people there are fantastic, almost like an extended family. Several times Heiner, the owner, come out and showed or looked at birds with... More

I went to monteverde for two days and found this gem of a place. This is a small family owned place, very inexpensive but well worth the stay. The owner brings breakfast to your room and in the morning. The bungalows are extremely clean and the owners go out of their way to help you. You will not be disappointed... More

My husband and I spent a week at the Monteverde Villa Lodge and had a most enjoyable stay there. It is located a bit off the beaten path, which made for a quiet and restful night's sleep. The front door opens up to an open space bordered by the forest, so there was often an interesting bird or animal to... More

My wife and i spent two nights at Monteverde Villa Lodge in March 2010. We initially tried to book at Heiner's brother's place but they were full. He referred us to MVL which turned out to be wonderful. First, the reception: this is a family owned place run by a delightful couple Heiner and Ana. They made us feel welcome... More

I was referred here by Heiner's brother who owns Rustic Villa Lodge, and I am so glad! We had a wonderful time here. It is definitely "off the beaten path", but if you like an authentic experience of how the locals live, this is it! Our cabin was spacious, had one queen size bed and another bed had to be... More

I feel so bad giving this place a poor review, because the family who owns it is absolutely delightful. However, I'm not a budget traveler or a backpacker type and felt that I need to warn other people who are more high maintenance like me. The first room was above their house. It had a bed shoved in a strange... More

Heiner and his family are lovely hosts at Monteverde Villa Lodge. The cabins are beautiful, spacious, clean and tucked away from the crowded downtown core. Heiner is extremely helpful, kind, and will make sure you are well-informed. I definitely recommend staying here!!! Lovely, lovely, lovely.
