We stayed here March 2 & 3, 2015. Close enough to walk into town which was nice, but, still off the beaten path. The room we had was quite small. Clean with a tiny bathroom. I honestly thought the rooms should have had heat. It was really cold when we were there. Great for sleeping, but, chilly for getting dressed... More

The Cala Lodge was a lovely spot to use as a base for our 3 night stay in the Monteverde area. It was clean, quiet, and well kept. The management was friendly and helped us with all of our needs, including an early arrival and an early departure breakfast.The grounds were nicely maintained and we enjoyed seeing the wildlife from...

This was a small haven :-) The hotel is kind of basic but the location was stunning and the tranquility was heaven. We stayed in room 5 which was an ok room with a nice bathroom but the est thing was the balcony overlooking the beautiful mountains. But the very best part of our stay here was having breakfast on...

We stayed here for 3 nights. We weren't happy with our main floor garden room the first night (the room was dark, didn't have a view and the people upstairs were loud). Ava, at the front desk, made sure that we were able to switch to a better room for our remaining two nights. We were switched to a premium... More

We checked in at around 8 pm after driving the horrendous road around the lake from Arenal. We were shown our room, which was a standard room like we booked last minute on Expedia. Bed, bathroom but no view. In a few minutes, Eva, the front desk person, hurried to tell us she had a better room for us. We... More

I went for two day trip to Monteverde, Stay at Cala Lodge very easy to locate, the place is a small cozy hotel but with big rooms. Quiet, nice green areas, the breakfast was delicious, the checking process and the information provided was excellent. Overrall good hotel and the price excellent.

A little out of the way but no big deal for us since we were driving. We were a little put off by the tiny size of our unit but pleased with the outstanding view we had. Kind of felt like we were staying in a tree house from our 2nd floor location. Due to room size we had totally... More

This place although a short walk from the main town was an absolute highlight of our trip to monteverde. It is situated among beautiful gardens and the rain forest. The room was very spacious and clean. At night it was quite cold and windy but there was an extra blanket in the room just in case. I loved sitting on... More

The dirt road to the lodge is enough to put you off going, but stick with it and there is a very nice lodge at the end. Fine accommodation with nice gardens and a reasonable view. They do a very nice breakfast, but no other food available. Not far to restaurants and a small supermarket. The 1 km walk to... More

Awesome place, great attention, beautiful full equipped rooms, excellent price, near to almost everything! If I go to Monteverde again I will definitely take a room here again. Also the breakfast was included and it was perfect. I am not sure but when I went there the restaurant only offered breakfast, you must take the other meals out. But the... More
