Another backpackers paradise. Little establishment run by a very friendly, young coupe of English speaking Ticos. Inexpensive; cash only. A few cabinas and a few rooms in a quiet corner in the outskirts of a little town of Santa Elena with easy access to Monteverde, Selvatura, Children’s Forest(Los ninos) and other attractions. In the town are Insect World, Serpentarium(reptiles), Ranarium(frogs),... More

We found the lodge to be a short 10 minute walk to downtown. The rooms were very clean with hot showers. Heiner, the owner is very friendly and helpful. Even a great breakfast in the morning.

Well laid out with everything needed. The breakfast was made to order and extra early as we had to be ready for a tour. Owners went out of their way to be helpful. Excellent value for the cost!

The Monteverde Villa Lodge is very comfortable and clean. The owners are really accommodating and helpful. They got up early to serve us breakfast and catered their menu to our preferences. They also held our luggage for us after we checked out while we went on tours. It's a really great place and I would highly recommend it to anyone... More

This hotel is just plain lovely. There are gardens out front, the rooms are quaint and the staff is amazing. This hotel is a liitle off the beaten path, but we found that refreshing in Monteverde. It's a short walk to town and the owner booked a zipline tour for us that picked us up at the hotel. The owner... More

My girlfriend and I stayed there for 3 nights and we enjoyed a lot this quiet little hotel 700m from the center of Santa Elena. The room was super clean, huge, had a little fridge, plenty of hot water. The breakfast was great, specially the pancakes. But the best thing of all is the friendly manager, Heiner and his wife....

What made our stay at the Monteverde Villa Lodge special was the service and attention that we received from Heiner, the manager at the hotel. He was very knowledgeable with regards to the tours offered around Monteverde and was able to book several tours for us at the drop of a hat. Unfortunately, we booked our stay at the Villa... More

Two of my friends and I stayed here in late October. The staff (especially the owner, Heiner) were all super-warm and friendly, extremely helpful with planning activities and transportation for day-trips. The rooms were huge, clean and very peaceful. They served us custom-made breakfast every morning, and checked in on us to make sure everything was going all right. We... More
