I had a great time here, it's clean and as other reviews have said..the hosts are extremely helpful and friendly. All tours I took picked me up outside which was very convenient. It is also only a short walk into the 'town'. Had I been closer to the town I think it would have been noisy so Im glad I stayed here as its very quiet.
I would definitely return!

I stayed three nights at the Monteverde Villa Lodge and used is at a base to explore the cloudforests and local sights (which are amazing). Heiner and Ana were fantastic hosts and couldn't do enough to make sure my stay was enjoyable. Cabins are large, clean and comfortable. The Lodge is about 10 minutes walk from town, but taxis are about $2 and readily available. I highly recommend this place!

Heiner and Anna were wonderful nice hosts. They were very helpful and friendly. Their son was absolutely adorable! Their hospitality and family atmosphere was a nice change in the middle of trip to Costa Rica from staying at large hotels.
Rooms were very clean and breakfast was good. The location was very convenient because it was a short walk from town.
Definitely recommend staying here when visiting Monteverde!

Believe the other reviews that say what great hosts Heiner and Ana are. They are gracious and more than helpful. The rooms are spacious, spotless and large. Located only a ten minute walk from town on a quiet cul-de-sac. Excellent value for the money.

We have stayed 2 nights at Monteverde Villa Lodge, travelling with a 16 month old infant. The rooms are very big and clean. We had a fridge and a sink in the room that helped us to keep the infant food and clean the bottles. The owner also supplied us with a micro wave to be able to warm up the our kids milk, this was a very much appreciated service.
We had a TV in the room and we could even get German TV (Deutsche Welle) which was great for us German living in the US.
The people are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was great.
The garden area could be improved to have a nice place to sit outside.
I would definitly recommend this hotel for all kind of travellers.

Room Tip: Last room at end of the garden is very big.

Situated on the edge of the little town Santa Elena, only 10 minutes walking from the center, this place is an ideal stop to explore the environment. The cabins are very spacious. Heiner and Ana are very nice people who make you feel at home. They will give you good information about the tours and book them for you if you like. The breakfast is also very good.
