Stayed at the Monteverde Country Lodge for one night. The room was average but clean, the bed wasnt so comfortable and it has very thin walls so its hard to fall asleep. The front desk staff were very attentive, Jeffrey the waiter was also very nice and friendly, the waitresses not so kind. Overall its not a bad option, ok... More

We stayed at the Monteverde Country Lodge hotel for 2 nights in December 2014. The hotel looks impressive from the outside - the reception area/gardens are lovely. However our room was very dark and the smell (which we could only work out was coming from the plants outside) was not very welcoming. The hotel is quite a way away from... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 days while on vacation in Monteverde. The hotel was in a great location and close to some very good restaurants. The town in only 5 minutes away as well. The rooms were very clean and the staff very inviting. They have a lot of services to offer and their breakfast buffet was... More

I had been looking forward the most to this hotel given their eco credentials but was a little disappointed. The rooms were fine and the bed huge and comfortable but the insulation was zero so we heard our upstairs neighbour clomping about all night. The breakfast again was adequate but nothing exciting for saying they push the food at the... More

This place is just what you need while staying in Monteverde. The rooms are minimalistic and clean. The only negative comments about this place is the shower door was not installed properly and water went onto the floor and the walls are thin. You hear everything people say in the next room. Everything else was fabulous!!! Great landscaping and great... More

It is located at a quiet area, surrounded with nature. 20 min walk to town centre. The rooms are nice and clean. Food is decent and staff is very friendly. The only down side for us was that there were no heating or cooling option in the rooms. So we were cold and nothing we hung dried due to the... More

Hotel is set in nice green garden with trees and fountains. It seems to be far away from Santa Elena, but it really is only about 15 minutes walk there (if you are fit) and perhaps 20 – 25 back since it is uphill. Cab is about 3 USD one way. There are some grocery shops and restaurants nearby. Lucie... More

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
