Cala Lodge is perfect! The staff, Eva and Josie, we're so kind and helpful. The rooms were tidy and the whole place felt very clean. Very close to restaurants, coal artists' shops as well as Santa Elena and the Cloud Forest Reserve. There was so much wildlife right outside the rooms, flowers, butterflies, couti, armadillo and birds. Breakfast was included... More

We are happy with the beauty of the grounds and the helpfulness of the staff. Breakfast is delicious and there are good restaurants nearby for other meals. Our room is somewhat small but very clean and well appointed. We've seen birds and other animals from our balcony.

We stayed here when we visited Monteverde and were satisfied with our stay. The staff were very friendly and happy to help in booking tours or taxis. Rooms were clean and although there is no air con, the ceiling fan was adequate. The view from our room was fantastic and if you're looking for a tranquil and relaxing stay, this... More

Had a good time at the lodge, nice staff, they were always there to help when we wanted tours and get taxis. On arrival the girl gave us a map of the area and circled lots of different areas to go, which was very helpful. The room was clean and it was cleaned daily. We had a triple room (large... More

Cala Lodge is a friendly, family-run place in the famous Monteverde area. The rooms are nice and clean with balcony and big windows. Mine overlooked the garden so first thing in the morning I saw was an Agouti just outside my room. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good, too. Wifi is only available at the... More

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...
