Recently spent 3 nights at this lodge. I was wonderful! The rooms were clean and nicer than I think the pictures portray. I met Francisco, the owner and he is always making improvements to the lodge. We walked to local restaurants for dinner and "town" is a cheap cab ride in (downhill) or back (very uphill). I was able to... More

As an avid traveler, I would strongly say that Monteverde is my favorite destination by far and that Cala Lodge played a big part in my consideration. This hidden gem, within a 15 minute walk from the center of town, boasts beautiful mountain views. The lodge also has WiFi, the most delicious breakfast selection, and the kindest staff of any...

My family and I stayed in several places during a trip around Costa Rica, but the one we're still talking about a year later is the Cala Lodge. The staff was beyond friendly and the rooms were clean and beautiful. We were the only guests at the hotel during our stay (there were 8 adults and a 6 month old... More

For various reasons I travel through Monteverde a few times every year. Whether I'm traveling alone or as part of a group I always choose Cala Lodge for its high standard of service, location, cost, and natural surroundings. Personally, I just love going there to watch the nature from my room's balcony or the spacious terrace off of the restaurant.... More

One of my best Costa Rican friend invited me to visit Monteverde, it was such a wonderful trip to arrive there from San Jose, but the surprise was even better when we arrived to Cala Lodge. The atmosphere is incredible, the place and around is magnificent. But, the personal attention is wonderful, an unforgettable experience

Excellent and helpful staff. I recommend this place to anyone interested in nature and relaxation. A great location, close to town and an array of interesting attractions. The rooms are clean and accommodating, while the main lodge offers a breathtaking view. I would definitely visit again soon.

We stayed two nights at Cala Lodge and had a wonderful time. The owners were very friendly, the rooms were real cozy and the surrounding flora and fauna amazing! I've traveled and stayed in low to high end hotels, and there's something about Cala which really called my attention. I believe it was the combination of great hosting, beautiful rooms... More
