I would have really enjoyed this hotel had the weather been good but they are not to blame for that - it is cloud forest after all. True, the room didn't have a view but as we were out walking the trails, canopy walkway and butterfly experience it didn't really matter. We had two nice meals there. As we had... More

This hotel is in a good location, ticks the boxes for all the standard features and had very helpful staff, however, the room was bland, very thin walls with not much of a vibe. We recently stayed at the lodge for two nights during a two week stay in costa rica. The location was good, with ample parking if your... More

From arrival to departure we had a great stay at the Country Lodge. We've just returned from a tour of Costa Rica (October 2014), where we stayed in Monteverde for a few days. Everything you need to know about the hotel amenities is on their website - so if you are looking for a pool, be prepared to travel to... More

The hotel is beautiful, however it does not have ammenities such as sauna, jacuzzi, gym, beauty spa etc. This is annoying not only because the hotel is not cheap but also after our birdwatching there was not much for us to do, specially, because when we went, October 2014 it rained very hard everyday in Monteverde and it would have...

I have traveled to many places and have stayed at many hotels. I would not recommend this hotel. There is no air conditioning in the room. At night, the room was very hot. The heat in the room allows for bugs to make themselves at home. My children had a hard time falling asleep at night in fear that bugs... More

This place has a very peaceful and soothing atmosphere. Its walking distance from town and close to the rainforest reserves. Even though there is no pool they do allow you to use the pool at their sister facility down the road.

Stayed with family of 4 for two nights during our Costa Rica trip. Clean hotel, friendly staff, however rooms very noisy and breakfast rather limited choice. Fine to stay for few days, but not if you look for a little more luxury. Also quite a bit away from village.

There is so much to like about this hotel. The reception is so friendly and helpful. Very nice restaurant. Breakfast is included in the price. Nice, large rooms. Close enough to town but not that far away. Beautiful nature surroundings. I did not have problems with noise from other rooms, but the people in the room next to me said... More

This is an absolute gem of a hotel. The grounds are on the end of a secluded road within walking distance to the little town yet far enough away to feel absolutely secluded. The rooms are large and beautifully appointed. Nice bathroom, showers with plenty of hot water and rice wood inlaid ceilings. Very comfortable beds. The restaurant has delicious,... More
