Small, but very very clean, rooms. The service was excellent. We stayed for two nights. The concierge booked us two tours, and got our laundry set up for us. The rooms are a little dark, but I've been finding that to be true throughout Costa Rica. We would sit out on the patio/ deck, and were offered really good coffee...

This was a fantastic spot for our 3 days in Monteverde. The rooms were perfectly simple - clean, comfortable, and very eco-friendly. Our two-person room was equipped with a queen and a single, which was just right for my sister and me. The location is equally wonderful, in that you can easily access the downtown area of Santa Elena with...

I stayed for only one night, the lodge helped organise a tour and airport transfer for me. Wifi is a bit weak if at all in the room but better in reception. The decor is very cute and rustic, it's not really to my taste as I found the room quite dark but the restaurant area is marvellous. It's not...

I was looking for an economical, clean, and simple bed and breakfast for my husband, teen, and I for a three night stay in Monteverde this past July. We didn't need a pool or any fancy amenities and loved the decor, cleanliness, and location of this lodge. No televisions, phones, or expensive overhead to pay for - just clean lodging...

This was a very clean, spacious room and bathroom (for 4 people). The rooms were beautiful - the woodwork is amazing. The location was great - walking distance to down (downhill to town, uphill back to the hotel from town) and only $2 to take a taxi to and from town. The breakfast was yummy and fresh. This was a...

We stayed at the Monteverde Rustic Lodge for 2 nights in December 2016. We absolutely LOVED our time here. Jose and Ernesto were amazing, so helpful and so warm and friendly. Our room was extremely clean and we loved the breakfast. The location was great, a short 10 minute walk to town. We wish we would have stayed longer and...
