Located close to the center of town but far enough away to avoid the noise of the many hostels, we found this great hotel that was perfect for us. Roomy cabins with an unbelievably gorgeous view, kitchen, frig, coffee maker, microwave and fast wi-fi. The owner, Christian, spent a lot of time helping us to find out what to do... More

Rainbow Valley Lodge was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. Christian was an excellent host, very responsive over email, and helped us select the perfect rental for our stay. We stayed in the 1-bedroom chalet and it was everything we hoped for. The view from the bed was unforgettable, and with such a windy area the room was... More

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
