Cala Lodge was built on three acres of property (1.2 hectares) of forest right next to the world-renowned Children's Eternal Rain Forest which has an area of 52.800 acres. It is the largest private reserve in Central America. Cala Lodge offers reasonably priced, cozy accommodations secluded from the noise and crowds and surrounded by beautiful forest with easy access to all the main attractions in the area. We help our visitors to design the best itineraries to take advantage of their stay in Monteverde and make it a memorable esperience.

We had a great stay! Small scale hotel, super friendly staff, great breakfast and good coffee. The rooms are very clean. Great service by the staff. Highly recommend it. From the main lodge you can watch beautiful birds during breakfast.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Cala Lodge for the new year! Everyone was very professional when checking in and since it was our honeymoon we got upgraded free of charge to a step up from what we originally reserved. Also the owners of Cala were very polite when we had to

Response from GerenciaCL, Owner at Cala Lodge

Hello, To us is really sad to read a review like this one. We are pretty sure of what we offer, the quality of our service and the beauty of our location. However, we can truly realize that our Cala Lodge was not the Hotel for you and probably the agency who help you with your booking use the place that was available without taking into consideration your needs. We are a Hotel located in the middle of the Cloud Forest and we provide an experience to connect with nature. We never advertise having a restaurant, telephones, TV's or having a bellboy. Our location is clear on all platforms, so that it does not come as a surprise that we are not in Santa Elena and you either need to walk or use a taxi service to go to town. What we do have is an amazing group of people trained and willing to help you with anything you need, our maintenance staff will help you with luggage at any time you just need to request it at our front desk. It is very easy to fix anything regarding your stay if you let us know. And unfortunately, this was not the case. We are sure there were some options that would have offer what you were looking for.

We were only there for two nights but had a great stay. Rooms are very cozy. Nice bathroom, probably the best shower we had in Costa Rica. The grounds are fantastic with a lot of wildlife. Saw a group of monkeys travelling through the trees. Breakfast was great in the

"I would not recommend this place if you wish to have a place to rest if its raining."
"Rooms above ground level for spectacular views!"
"Staying in the main building was not loud. We did have to use the stairs; they may not have an elevator."
"Our Lodge was an appartment and comfortabel"
"The lodges near reception were popular but we had suite 15 further out and saw so much more x"
