We enjoyed our stay at La Colina Lodge. Andrea on reception was really helpful in booking tours and our onward accommodation. She even came in on her day off to make us an early breakfast! On the downside the shower was cold on the first day and our room felt quite small and dated.

We staid in December 2014 in La Colina Lodge - mainly because we found the website very convincing. The reality however is different: our room (though one of the higher priced rooms with "private bathroom") are very shabby, warm water did not work. We slept in our clothes simply because the room was too cold and the blankets felt moist... More

I came to Monteverde in 2013 as part of a couple of years touring Costa Rica, and stayed at La Colina Lodge because it was recommended by a Doctor I met while studying at an environmental learning center in Mastatal, Costa Rica. I was so happy here, I stayed for months and returned to La Colina in 2014 for several... More

A peaceful and serene setting on an organic farm, lively arts and music scene. Breakfast was farm fresh eggs and homemade jam and rolls, everything here is fresh from the farm. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful w/ directions and activity planning, enjoyed a meditation session w/ one of the staff. Great place to chill after the surf trip... More

This is such a cozy spot. We arrived and instantly started breathing at a slower pace, finding true peace being nestled into this lodge right at the edge of the Monteverde Reserve. Staff is friendly and place is clean. Great price. It's a happy spot I now dream of going back to!

Me and two of my friends decided to stay at La Colina on our visit to Monteverde. We loved it! Everything was great. The lodge itself was very pretty, it had a very artsy feel to it. Kelly helped us tremendously, she helped us find things to do in the area as well as helped us find our way to... More

My son and I stayed at La Colina for three nights. Kelly was super helpful and pleasant. The room was clean and adequate, with great tile floors and access to forests just yards away. The food was great, we saw agoutis, armadillos and Toucanets around the Lodge and a short walk up the road led us to see a wonderful... More

Stayed for 3 nights at La Colina and enjoyed it very much. It is now run by Kelly and Morrisio. Room includes breakfast which was large and tasty! Kelly helped us with giving us ideas on what to do and arranged tours for us! It's a rustic mountain type lodge that has lots of character. Kelly and Morrisio are working... More
