Just back from trip to costa Rica and staying at Montverde lodge was definitely one of the highlight. Small ecolodge but staff was amazing was greeted by name every time I had an interaction with staff. Service was top notch as well as breakfast and meals was fabulous. Although pool and butterfly gardens were not in operation they bought us a round of drinks for inconvenience.

A big hello from all of our at Monteverde Lodge! Thank you for your kind words regarding your stay at our lodge, restaurant experience and our amazing staff. We strive every day to make our guests feel right at home. We are glad we could make up for the lack of pool at the time of your visit. We are sorry for the misinformation regarding the butterfly garden, since it has been outdated. Our expansive gardens and trails surrounding our lodge provide the perfect opportunity to see butterflies and other fauna out in the wild!

We went during rainy/low season, so there weren't too many guests on the property. Nevertheless, the coffee was fresh, the food was top notch, and the stay exceeded my expectations. I'm writing this review sitting in the lobby of a large, luxury resort in Guancaste, and I can say that I missed the personalized experience that the Monteverde Lodge greeted me with every morning. They helped plan tours, suggest things to do, and were generally helpful and pleasant. I would definitely recommend staying here and eating at El Jardin, their in-house restaurant (which was better than most of the restaurants I've been to in Tamarindo, Brasalito, and Playa Flamingo).

It's a beautiful and quiet place. The sounds of nature made it even more pleasant. The service of our waiter Andrés was outstanding. He was by far one of the best waiters I've ever came across. Excellent service, kindness and a personality that makes you feel like a special guest. Highest recommendation from my side.
