This one was one of the best places we stayed of the dozen hotels we stayed in our 23 days trip around Costa Rica. The views are breathtaking, the rooms very confy, with a small kitchen and even a tv with a dvd and even some movies in dvd. Good reliable Wi-fi in our room. Christian and his family were... More

My friend and I were in Costa Rica for the first time ever and Christian definitely helped to make it the best trip of our lives! The Rainbow Valley Lodge was so comfortable and had an amazing view! Christian was so very helpful in giving us advice about tours and restaurants, and informed us on a few coupons for local... More

What a good service we received from Christian. He gave us good advices and organised everything for us such that we had nothing to worry about. Rooms were clean and the view was amazing. We would advice this lodge to everyone who wants the best value for his money.

Can't say enough good things about Christian and his fantastic lodge! Not only was the lodge comfortable, spacious and convenient for preparing meals, but the views were incredible. We saw the clouds rise over the mountains, a moon rise during one night, and the rainforest views were gorgeous. Christian was a terrific guide for our Monteverde tour and helped us... More

We loved staying at Rainbow Valley Lodge. We arrived by public transportation, and it was easy to get around without a car. Christian and Hazel were the consummate hosts -- welcoming, kind, and very informative. They both grew up in the area, and Christian is a seasoned naturalist guide -- an added bonus! We were grateful to be staying a... More

This review is long overdue but I knew in writing this how much it would make me miss Costa Rica and Monteverde/Santa Elena especially! My boyfriend and I spent two nights at Rainbow Valley Lodge at the end of June and we were lucky to come across this gem of a place. We had the lower single room and it... More

I stayed at the Lodge for two nights in December. The Lodge was comfortable with a stunning view! I forget some things in the Lodge and they sent them to Germany without charging any cost. Christian, the host of the Lodge is an amazing guy providing any kind of service. I highly recommend to stay in his Lodge!

Title of the review provided by my 8 year old son, who really liked Rainbow Valley Lodge. I usually do Pros and Cons in my reviews, but I have no Cons so will just go over the Pros. We stayed at the standalone cabin and we were the only ones there for our 3 days, which was great for our... More

My partner and I saw this place while siring into town and decided to stop. We were informed by Christian (host) that there would be a vacancy the next day. He then gave us coupons for restaurants and all other types of tours. All his suggestions were great. I would recommend this place to anyone. The room was clean, the... More

Some people are thrill seekers, others are view seekers. I'm a view seeker, and if you're anything like me, you will love this place! Lush green mountains of the rain forest for as far as the eye can see in any direction with the occasional rainbow to ice the cake. I never witnessed the rainbow for myself, but I hear... More

Monteverdeguy, Owner at Rainbow Valley Lodge, responded to this review

Very happy you had a nice stay and view Mario. Thanks to you and all the others who take time out of their busy schedules to post a review to help potential future guests. That upper room being above the trees really makes the view special. I would point out that we now have a pretty clear view of the... More
