It was a treat staying on the grounds and having entry to the cloud forest as part of our accommodation rate. When the weather cleared a bit or we just felt like taking a walk inside it was easy to do so with no thought of extra cost. The meals were freshly cooked with great fresh ingredients and we were...

La Casona lodge is a great place to visit in Monteverde. We were a family of ten and the lodge was great! We all enjoy the night walk and the hikes in the reserve are beautiful. The team is really welcoming and the food is excellent. Weather in much colder and humid than other parts of Costa Rica so be... More

I was not expecting anything nice. I booked the room only for its location and I was glad that I did. The park fills up to max capacity early and it's useful to be on the grounds before the busses roll in. The meals included with the stay are scrumptious and include a good mix of local and international meals.... More

We booked a night at La Casona to be right in the park at dawn and at night. We had a private room on the ground floor that was spacious and clean. The meals were included and we were not disappointed. We got there for lunch and had soup, panini sandwiches and juice. At night, we had to drive to... More

My family (group of 4 adults) chose to stay at the lodge for 1 night, as we had just one (half) day to visit the Cloud Forest, and wanted the proximity for our early morning hike the next day. Rose Mary was very kind in helping us plan for our booking and greeting us on arrival. The value is quite... More

The best thing about staying here was being able to get into the forest one hour before the tour groups arrived. However, the room was quite basic. You have to pay for full board - breakfast and lunch were good but for dinner we had to drive 3km on a terrible road to Tramonti Restaurant - in itself a good... More

Combine 27 middle school students, 6 adult chaperones, three guides, and one tour bus driver into a hostel and what do you get? Some griping. Granted, the rooms themselves are nice, clean, and contain most amenities, the lodge itself is steps away from the paths of the Cloud Reserve. However, stuffing six teenage girls into one room to share a... More

We stayed 1 night at the biological reserve in the Cloud Forest and couldn't ask for a better time. Being so isolated we were the only people staying that night so we had the entire place to our self! We arrived in the morning and immediately dropped off our luggage and went on a guided day hike from the lodge.... More

Nice place to stay if you are interested in spending most of your time in the cloud forest and away from the towns of Monteverde/Santa Elena. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is very accommodating. A benefit of staying here is that the price includes your daily park entrance fees and you are allowed to access Monteverde...

we really enjoyed our time here. Rose was extremely nice and willing to help with anything we needed. Laundry service rates were very reasonable. Slightly expensive for what you got but it was partially a contribution to the cloud forest reserve. The restaurant at the lodge was very good. Dinner option was an Italian restaurant only and that could have... More
