My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rainbow Valley Lodge. The lodge is on the edge of town making for a quiet and peaceful stay. We stayed three nights in cabins looking out at the cloud forest. We had butterflies and hummingbirds visit the bushes in front of our cabin throughout the day. One morning we had a... More

Individual bungalows have outstanding views of Monteverde. With full kitchen facilities (stovetop, microwave, fridge, toaster, coffeemaker, but no oven), and dishes etc provided it makes it easy to feed a whole family. Our chalet was very new and spacious, with a double bed and a king bed big enough to fit three very comfortably. Watching the valley, the clouds, birds... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and were so pleased we did. The lodge is about 10,15 mins walk into the centre of Monteverde, which means you're close enough to go out but far enough to be in a peaceful location. Christian, the owner, was there to greet us, and he listened to what we wanted out of our stay... More

This is a peaceful place with rustic charm. The owners are friendly and willing to help in any way they can. We stayed in a spacious family room which had a double bedroom and double + single combined in the living area, with a veranda and seating area to enjoy your coffee (provided). It is in a good location- about... More

In our 2.5 weeks in Costa Rica this was our favourite accommodation. Christian was the perfect owner who clearly sets a high standard for his hotel set up. His local knowledge and connections were also extremely useful while we were there. The Lodge provided the perfect family accommodation with spacious and modern design. The bed and bed linen were the... More

I can't say enough wonderful things about the Rainbow Valley Lodge! It vastly exceeded our expectations in every way. The bungalows are spacious and appointed with every amenity you could need to make your home away from home. The wi-fi is strong--with each bungalow having it's own router. And the views were simply stunning! I felt like we were living... More

We stayed only 2 nights, too short! Christian the owner helped us a lot with finding the best zip lining and horseback riding. He also told us... More

First of all I'd like to start by thanking Christian who is a gem of a person. I've had several e-mail exchanges with him and he was always prompt and precise. He works on an honour based system with no deposit required so please do give him plenty of notice if you decide to cancel after booking. Costa Rica is... More
