My family and I stayed here for 2 nights and were met with a very frustrating experience which completely colored our stay here. Cala Lodge was chosen by our travel agency. Upon arrival at reception, we were brought to a room with too few beds so we asked for a place with another bed. We were then offered a room... More

Certainly, I was expecting this review since the day we had you in our Hotel. It is amazing to see how people can say anything that they want in order to discredit a business. It is beyond believe to see people willing to do it, and this is the perfect example! However, we are thankful to have the opportunity to... More

This place is awesome. The staff is so helpful, they helped us book our excursions. The breakfast is delicious. The rooms look like you are actually in the jungle. It is also nice and clean too. It is nice and close to town. Worth a stay if you ever come to Monteverde.

If you're looking for a happening stay with a flat screen tv and resort amenities, this is not the place for you. Cala Lodge is tucked away about 20 minutes away from Santa Elena. The walk into town is doable but the walk back can be challenging thanks to the hilly terrain. The place has a cabin like feel with... More

Cala Lodge was awesome. Very clean, very eco-friendly, GREAT and very helpful staff, wonderful breakfast, and secluded. Cala Lodge was an oasis for us on our honeymoon. It was most definitely our favorite place we stayed in Costa Rica. Very affordable and the homemade marmalade at breakfast is delicious. I wish they would sell it! I would definitely return here...

Friendly staff, Eva gave us all her pieces of advices for activities and even book for us the tours! She advised us for El Cafetel tour (the delicipus lodge's coffee by the way). Nice breakfast (delicious pancakes, too bad that they just come by 2 :P ) and a beautiful view from the rooms. The ecological concept is great as... More

The Cala Lodge is a great Eco-Lodge tucked in the hills above Santa Elena/Monteverde. We were greeted by super friendly staff, namely Ava who welcomed us and gave us great information about our stay. We were able to get into our room a little early, and were very happy with our room. It was a wood/lodge type of feel, with... More

Cala Lodge was a lovely place to stay at. We drove up from Nosara and arrived before noon. Although our room wasn't ready yet, we were able to leave our luggage in the administrative office and take off to grab a bite to eat. They let us check in when we got back from lunch an hour later. All of... More

Cala Lodge puts you in the cloud forest right from your room. We had big picture windows and a balcony that made our room a forest retreat. The room was comfortable and clean, had a little refrigerator, and big bathroom. The staff, especially Josie, were so helpful! She even called for tour reservations in our next destination and printed them... More

The owners of Cala Lodge are a perfect delight. If you care about conservation, this is an eco friendly environment. Many rooms have little balconies; the shower was the best! Meals were very nicely presented and the dinner was a special treat.

Good service, ok breakfast to choose between classical American / continental / local A bit remote from town does not make it a drawback (transfers are as cheap as Costa rica can be) However, average cleanliness (beds) leaves us with an average feeling of the not - to - be missed Monteverde area
