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

The rooms are very nice and the hotel grounds are exceptional. The rooms are super clean and are well appointed as well. There are many options... 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

This place is wonderfully located - slightly away from town center, and close to all attractions. Highly recommend a stay here. The owner has a great personality to boot. Also, breakfast is free, so you'll feel well prepared for the day!

The owners were very helpful in helping us find hiking trails that were not so tourist filled. The breakfast every morning and we stayed 4 nights was amazing... More

Every recommendation that Jose made for us to do far exceeded our expectations every time, we had such a great time in Monteverde. There are beautiful hand made tables in the... More

Amazing place, very clean, staff are helpful and fluent in English, and close to the mountain top. We were greeted with juices and friendly smiles when we arrived. There are maps and detailed explanations at reception. Very quick to book tours and arrange for pick for us. Breakfast is provided with great services and freshly made food, juices and coffee

Great location, nice accommodations, very reasonable price... but hands down the best part of our stay here was talking to Jose. He and his brother actually built the hotel and everything in it -- including making all the furniture. Jose and his staff had great tips for our stay including what guides to use, where to eat, other off-the-map places... More
