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

Cala Lodge was a perfect place to stay while visiting Monteverde and the surrounding area. The rooms were clean, neat, spacious and comfortable. We stayed in one of the rooms in the main building and were very happy with the accommodations and staff. The included breakfast was great and got us started off right each morning. Being set back in... More

Cala lodge is great!! I can't explain how much I enjoyed my stay at that hidden jewel in the forest. I knew I was already going to a great place after reading all the reviews but is one thing reading and actually experiencing what Cala lodge has to offer. Great room. Great costumer service. Cala has one of the best... More

We looooved Cala Lodge. The staff was suuuper friendly and our cabin was great! We had no complaints and felt very safe for 3 young ladies. The lodge wasn't too far from nearby restaurants or the main town area. All in all, it was a great stay. Definitely would stay here again!

Pros: The wonderful views, the remote location, the brilliant staff and the good breakfasts. Cons: Bed wasn't the most comfortable and room facilites are basic but all that pales into insignificance when you see the view. Location: The lodge is high in the mountains, a 20 min downhill walk into Santa Elena for shops and restaurants and a 1200 colones... More

I'll keep my review to the point. The room was great (in the main building). The room was clean. The view was beautiful. We saw many birds and animals from the large windows. The lobby was clean. The staff was very friendly and pointed out animals for everyone to see while eating breakfast. It's just far enough away from downtown... More

To much to say… My wife and I only did our wedding at Cala Lodge but put a lot of the responsibility into Raquel's hands and I was surprise of the care for detail and the real compromise of the owners making sure everything was perfect! Everyone probably knows that Cala is an excellent place to stay for many reasons,... More

This hotel is situated at a 20 minutes walk (!some steep slopes!) from the town center and has no restaurant where the good restaurants can be found. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Staff is kind and helpfull.
