This lodge is not as nice as its website indicates. We stayed in the Carriage House which was a converted barn. It was musty and damp with no “TV, DVD, and lots of books to read” in the common living room. The only TV was in a small corner of the breakfast room of the main building shared with the... More

My husband and I stayed at the La Colina Lodge in June 2006 for one night. We liked that the lodge was close to the Monte Verde park, we did the after dark tour which was very interesting. This lodge has 2 buildings - we stayed in the building farther away from the road, so dust was not an issue.... More

La Colina Lodge IS exactly what everyone described. A rustic, VERY FRIENDLY and enchanting place in Monteverde. The family who owns the lodge are extremely helpful and friendly. The place is packed with people, pets, nature and kids. My only complaint (which isn't a complaing really, just a note)--is that the lodge is located off the side of a VERY... More

After reading the reviews on this site, I was expecting something a bit nicer. The rooms were ok...very small. And very drafty. It was freezing, and luckily they were able to provide us with extra blankets. I would say if you're going to monteverde, splurge and stay at one of the nicer hotels down the road or else in Santa...

A delightful stay. The family that runs La Colina was very helpful to say the least. They made sure I was as happy as a little tourist clam. The bagged lunches that they made up for me was a big plus in terms of money conservation; I didn't have to spend $12 on the lunch that the tours sell. They... More

I stayed at this friendly lodge back in February of this year. Run by a lovely American family who are keen to share their knowledge of the local area and will help you organise day trips etc. Nice, welcolming common area and garden out back where you can watch hummingbirds whizzing about! And if you play guitar Thomas will no... More

My husband and I stayed at La Colina for three nights. We were very well treated by the friendly and courteous staff who provided touring advice, did our laundry (for a small fee), served wonderful breakfasts, and allowed us to use their refridgerator for the cheese that we bought just down the road at the local cheese factory. La Colina's... More

For my first time going to Costa Rica would say it was grand. At first i was kind of anti-social because i didn't know anyone, but the staff of La Colina Lodge made me feel at home. My stay was lovely, i had some of the best sleep ever. Then only to wake up to breakfast in the morning and... More

If you’re willing to take a chance on the room you’ll be staying in then this is the place to stay. The website portrays beautiful spacious rooms filled with antiques. However, only a few of these and many more that were like the one we stayed in. The room was filthy and hadn’t even seen a broom let alone been... More
