It is a very calm place, his location allows him to move away from the hustle of the city and to rest. If what you wish is to disconnect yourself partially of the daily thing I recommend it to you. The attention of the personnel is excellent as his rooms. His location with regard to the downtown (Monte Verde) allows... More

What a lovely place to stay! From the moment we arrived the staff was helpful and kind. One member in particular, Eva, was very knowledgeable and hospitable and really made our stay comfortable. The location is a little hike from the main town, but if you're active it's not a big deal. Cab rides to and from the lodge are... More

Such a wonderful place to stay in Monteverde!! Felt like own private cabin in the woods surrounded by a reserve and full of wildlife (even a family of monkeys!) Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast amazing. Definitely want to return!! Best hotel if my visit!

We booked all our travel through Anywhere Costa Rica . . . which has its advantages and disadvantages . . . but Cala Lodge turned out to be an overall good place to stay. When we checked in, the young lady at the front wasn't overly friendly (friendliness in CR is so common and wonderful!) . . . Our room... More

As a Costa Rica travel designer, Cala Lodge is the perfect place for those who are looking for a relaxing, quiet and cozy place to stay. The lodge is not far from the main attractions and is located in a peaceful área, not in the main noisy Street that heads to Monteverde Reserve. Great views everywhere, a heartful breakfast to...

This is a cozy hotel located at the edge of the cloud forest. It is within walking distance to Santa Elena, though it is a bit of a hike. Good breakfast and excellent coffee!! While there is no restaurant on site there are a couple of excellent establishments within a short distance. Also a short walk to El Jardin de... More

The room was equipped with everything needed to be comforting, the bathrooms are spacious with plenty of comfort. The location of the hotel contributes to a peaceful environment. The service at the front desk and maintenance staff is very attentive and helpful. A detail to improve, is the lighting between the spaces that connect the reception with the rooms. Finally,...

I wish I could give more than 5 stars. We went in the down season and they upgraded our room without us asking. It was breathtakingly beautiful! The interior was spacious and the wood and large windows made for a great ambience. The hotel is on the edge of the Children's Eternal Forest Reserve and the views (right outside!) are... More

This was my first time (but not last) staying at Cala Lodge. My friends and I came into Monteverde from Nosara, Costa Rica and Tiluran, Costa Rica (where we live, and also work in the tourism and hospitality industry). We needed a place to stay that was affordable, dog friendly, and quiet. Cala Lodge met and exceeded our expectations in... More

The lodge was located on the mountain. The room had large sliding windows on two sides of the room overlooking a fantastic view of trees and forest. In the room then was a door leading into a small balcony where you could sit and contemplate the beautiful view. The room was large enough and even had an extra bed which... More
