3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

The lodge was clean and the room a reasonable size. No TV which was a bit of a drag when thunderstorm lasting several hours confined us to our room. There was wifi tho' The gardens are lovely and butterflies and birds are all around. The lodge only does breakfast but there are places to eat a 100 metres away so... More

Loved staying at this lodge. First up, cons, wifi was a bit week and there were just a few lose things in the room, which could have easily been fixed with a screwdriver. The big plus, the staff. Really attentive, helpful staff. They helped organise transport to our next destination and booking tours. Also had a good laugh with them.... More

I stayed on a solo trip to Costa Rica in May 2016. It is in the most beautiful setting with a wonderful verandah for sitting and watching the view and the birds. It was memorable watching the cloud coming up the garden and enveloping the view and then dispersing. The staff were so friendly and did everything they could to... More

We've stayed two nights here. Staff super friendly, breakfast rich, room clean and tidy. Not utterly large but you get to spend most of the day out anyhow. Fantastic view from room and terrace. Stunning. Priceless

Wasn't expecting much being near the Cloud Cover of Monteverde. The rooms #2 and # 4 were very small but adequate for what we wanted. The main pluses for this place it that the staff is great and extremely helpful. Went out of their way to get us guides and transportation to the park. Their breakfast was very good. Overall,...

Cala lodge has a well established garden that backs onto the forest. The bird watching is phenomenal and you get great wildlife passing through. White faced capuchins live in the area and there is no end to the birds you will see. OK, so no quetzal, but you will probably see everything else if you are patient. Breakfast is on... More

Stayed here as our second destination on our trip to Costa Rica. After quite the trek to get there on unpaved roads, we arrived to this little quaint and very quiet lodge in Monteverde. The lodge itself is nice and has a cottage feel. The staff are very nice and can help you book tours if you haven't done so... More

A group of birders from Cape Town stayed here for 2 nights in March 2016. The accommodation was very good and breakfast on the veranda was excellent. We enjoyed watching birds come to the bird feeder close by. The lodge is close to some excellent places to go birding, including the Cloud Forest Reserve where it was pretty easy to... More
