I went with my sister and brother-in-law. We loved our little cabin. The rooms were wonderful, and we enjoyed sitting on our little porches watching birds, and having a cup of coffee before breakfast. It was chillier than we thought up in the mountains, but that didn't matter. It never took away from our enjoyment. We spent a lot of...

Traveled to Monteverde as a change of scenery from Nosara. Picked the lodge based on other reviews and glad we did. Our cabin was extremely clean and cozy - who would think I'd be glad for a fleece blanket on the bed in Costa Rica? Breakfast was quite good, though a limited menu. Dinner in the restaurant was also quite...

This was a beautiful spot. We felt as if we were on top of the world. Colder and mistier than I would've liked my Costa Rica vacation to be, but the hotel itself was great! Make sure to check out the view out the windows of the restaurant. Beautiful!!

Thank you very much for your review. It is interesting that your rating of my property is low, however your review is positive. One of the great things about Costa Rica is the variety of micro climates that we have. From very hot along the pacific coast line (Tropical Dry Forest) and the Tropical Rainforest, all the way to cooler...

If I could, I'd give this place four and a half stars. That's because it was very nice but not luxurious. The location is absolutely beautiful and the room was pretty nice but nothing special. However, we loved having a little space of our own outside the room to sit and enjoyed the hiking trails. When we had a problem...

We stayed here 2 nights as part of our journey. The journey up to the lodge is via steep bumpy roads. The wind blows quite breezily and it tends to drizzle a lot. Check in was smooth. We took our own cases to our room. The rooms are semi detached but we had no problems with noise from next door....

Had a great time when we stayed here for 2 nights. The food in the restaurant was delicious and the staff were great helping us organise a hanging bridge and night tour. Be aware that it is cool and windy in Monteverde (despite numerous blankets I had to sleep in my fleece the first night) so bring one warm clothes....

We stayed two nights at this delightful lodge, in the cooler mountains near Santa Elena. The views of the setting sun from the hotel veranda are stunning, and cleverly placed feeders attract humming birds, tropical birds and coatis. The staff are very friendly and efficient and the food is excellent. Rooms are spacious and well appointed and the sounds of...

Attractive, comfortable and spacious lodges set in lovely gardens overlooking the forest. Restaurant offered broad choice with nearby hummingbird feeders enabling bird spotting whilst relaxing! The on-site zip wire is worth a look.

I completely agree with the positive comments of other reviewers. The location is so beautiful, and we especially enjoyed exploring the trails around the grounds. We loved seeing the varied wildlife.The night tour guided by Erick was fascinating. The cabins were simple but very comfortable. The only problem was that the walls are paper thin. However, everyone at the lodge...

After a three and a half hour drive from the Guanacaste area, we proceeded up the rocky, rough road to this lodge located in the hills above the little town of Santa Elena. We were so excited to be here, but at the reception desk, Karen barely looked up at us. We could tell right away that she had an...
