3 lovely days at this hotel. We stayed in a basic room, which had a king sized bed for us and a fold out couch for the kids. Room was fine, but I was worried about critters, the way the doors to the patio close there was a large gap in the door space. We also could not leave the...

A great place to relax and unwind after a long, bumpy and dusty drive. The rooms were extremely comfortable, and the staff extremely helpful. The restaurant is good and the wait staff exceptionally nice. The grounds are quite nice. The hotel is within walking distance of a couple of more typical restaurants, a pharmacy and an ATM. We would definitely...

Dear BA F, You're right the drive to Monteverde, no matter where you're coming from, is long, dusty and bumpy. This is one of the reasons we suggest that guests plan to stay 2-4 nights. This way you have enough time to enjoy the cloud forest and all of the activities that are available AND explore the gardens at the...

The Monteverde Lodge and Gardens is a beautiful hotel nestled in the jungle. The grounds are lovely and the pool is amazing. The yoga and reading area is just perfect. The restaurant El Jardin is also very good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Staff is friendly and helpful. We were so happy to spend 2 nights and three days there.

Dear kmorgan 71, It sounds like the lodge was a great fit for you. This is a great time of year to enjoy the gardens and our pool with cloud forest views. Depending on what you want to do in terms of activities while you are in Monteverde, we suggest 2-4 nights. This will give you time to do all...

This was a perfect choice. Not far from the center. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. Milton at the restaurant is very sweet and attentive. Glad I stayed here I had an incredible experience.

Dear CATHERINE P, It sounds like you were a perfect fit for the lodge. Since you enjoyed Monteverde Lodge so much, you would probably really like our sister lodge in Tortuguero, Tortuga Lodge & Gardens (#1 for Tortuguero here on Trip Advisor). Vacation Time is Precious!

My wife, three boys, and I stayed for 3 nights in early April. The Lodge is located close to downtown and very close to a grocery store. The grounds are serene and beautiful with multiple trails or "senderos" located throughout. The staff were pleasant and attentive. The buildings are a bit dated - nothing wrong - just older architecture. My...

Dear Jordan S, Thank you for your detailed review, it sounds like your family had a great time. The lodge was built in 1991, so yes, the architecture speaks to a time when we were the second lodge in the Monteverde area that had private bathrooms, up until that point, all the facilities, with one other exception, had shared bathrooms....

This is a beautifully, peaceful hotel in amazing surroundings. We sat in the pool while the clouds came in and had a meal in the butterfly garden which was an experience. Monteverde itself is lovely, friendly little town with plenty to do and good value food and drink. We really enjoyed our stay here

We recently stayed here with our 2 children. The hotel staff took great care of us. They made good suggestions for activities and tours throughout the area. Ziplining was so much fun! A guided tour through either the cloud forest park or else one of the private reserves is a must! The food was very good too!

Dear Mister Gulliver, We are sooooo sorry! You're right, we never should have been working on expanding one of the garden decks with your family so close to where the work was being done.
