I arrived exhausted during dawn in Monteverde after driving an impossibly hard grovel mountain road. Found the small hotel on top of a hill, a tropical oasis. Staff was beyond expectations helpful &friendly. Clean rooms breakfast cocked to order.

Good Breakfast, nice location, friendly owner and staff. nice animals in vicinity for your kid who is missing their cats and dogs! Walk to town and good restaurants. Do not miss Santa Elena Preserve. Selvatura was fun as well, both can be done in a day.

The people were all very friendly. They also helped us with planing our stay and recommended us great trips. The rooms are really nice with warm water showers. The whole lodge is made with love and has a lot of lovely details. The breakfast was great too. :)

Nice hotel with rather large rooms, each room seems to have at least double beds. The breakfast is not a buffet, they serve eggs, fruit, bread at the table (no rice, beans or baked banana here) if you want more, you just have to ask the friendly staff. Maybe an interesting remark: they don't have a fridge in the room... More

Monteverde rustic lodge is the perfect stop over for the cloud forest. The rooms were spacious for our family of 5, the breakfast was wonderful, home grown and plentiful but it was the wonderful smiles that greeted us every moment we were there. So helpful and accommodating with bookings - everything we asked for was just no trouble at all.... More

This place really does have the personal touch. The first night there were a few issues (based on the behavior of guests, not the fault of management). The owner met us at 6:30am in our room and apologized profusely. I don't want to tip his hand, but let's just say he made it soo worth it to stay. We then... More
