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

Start 2015 in a place like Monteverde was a great decision, and staying at Cala Lodge completed our experience! Several reasons as the friendly customer service staff, clean comfortable rooms but especially the proximity to the forest; being able to connect with nature in peace and quiet and the music of the leaves of trees and wind. Two unforgettable days... More

We stayed here from 25dec to 26th dec, 2014. We loved the rustic surroundings, friendly staff and sighting of birds and wildlife. Good breakfast, they even made omelette's to order. Easy access to town for lunch and dinner. Wi-fi was powerful.

Its location is the second best thing. View is amazing and beautiful. The place is very peaceful. The best thing is staff and service. They are very helpful. They have free coffee/tea and amazing breakfast. You can literally spend your entire day peacefully on patio enjoying the view and sipping coffee.

Me and Monika spent two nights at Cala lodge. Nice, helpful staff, a terrace and garden outside. The breakfast was good and even free coffe in the áfternoon. No, restaurant here but just a few hundred meters away there are many options. You can even sit in the "breakfast area" or outside and eat or drink your own things. Just... More

The second floor room I got has a six foot window right next to the bed with an open vista over the jungle stretching out below. At night I lie in bed watching the clouds blow by in front of the starry night sky. The rooms are very clean and everything works as it should. Breakfast is served by very... More
