Perfect for us!!! My adventurous daughter and I don't spend a lot of time at hotels, but it is nice to come back to a very quite and clean hotel with a great staff. They were very helpful, the breakfast was delicious and the room was very nice. Loved the back porch at the hotel lobby, saw all kinds of... More

Spent three nights here with my Family. Rooms where very comfortable and clean. Location was perfect with attention to creating a hotel that blended into its surroundings. Hotel Management and staff were extremely inviting making us feel "at home". Would definitely go back.

This place is beautiful. We were there in the off-season and there was construction going on so they upgraded us to a suite furthest away from the noise. It was so peaceful. We enjoyed walking the grounds and seeing toucans. The breakfast was included and was plenty to start the day with beautiful views overlooking the lush grounds and attached... More

A quiet small hotel with lovely grounds, consists of 3 buildings. Great gardens, I loved just sitting on the back porch behind the lobby/breakfast area drinking coffee & watching the humming birds & butterflies among the flowers. Breakfast was sit down with a simple menu, rather then buffet which made a nice change. It is about a 15 minute walk... More

hotel is nice and quaint - very few rooms and no tv but great wifi signal. breakfast was simple but good - eggs either scrambled or fried with ham, cheese, tomato, or pancakes. also served with fruit, coffee, juice. nice little getaway seclusion versus staying in typical, normal congested hotels. this has more of a cabin feel, in the woods,...

We stayed in the main building, looking directly out at the spectacular view. Our room was spacious and the bathroom was as well. Breakfast came with the room and included a fruit place, juice, coffee and then a made-to-order eggs, pancakes or granola, with fresh bread. This is a very quiet (except for the wind) boutique property on a beautiful... More

An absolutely perfect place for families. The suites are large enough to accommodate 5. The lodge is beautiful, and in the middle of a forrest with beautiful views. The desk is staffed by the couple who one the lodge, and could not be any friendlier or helpful. It is also only a 5-10 minute walk from the town center. Best... More

We stayed two nights at $110 per night which includes breakfast.The rooms are clean and have a terrace or balcony. The views were beautiful and there is a short nature walk for young ones. The staff was friendly and very helpful,

I loved staying at Cala Lodge! The location is spectacular.. perched up in the mountains and forests of Monteverde, away from the bustle of the town it provides a great refresher for the soul. It gets even better with a made to order hot breakfast cooked and served by the wonderful staff. Both Josies at the reception provided us with... More

Simple accommodations, feels like a treehouse. We were there near the end of April. At night it's cold & windy so pack some warm clothes. It's a short walk to Greens restaurant (try their creative menu) & Johnny's tapas bar/pizza place. Both very inexpensive but excellent food & service. You can walk to downtown fr cala lodge but it is... More
