Certificate of Excellence

We were very pleased with our stay of 2 nights. The owners are charming folks and bend over backwards to please. I was doing a night walk and forgot to bring a jacket and the owner actually lent me a couple of his to use. I didn't expect that. The grounds are tidy, the rooms clean and comfortable. The price was very reasonable. Quite a few restaurants nearby made walking to them easy. The nearby Soda was good and very inexpensive. All in all well worth the time and effort to find this place.

We stayed three nights at Villa Lodge and would book there again if we ever came back. It is a short but bumpy walk into Santa Elena, which we took a number of times.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. They graciously took care of booking all of our tourist needs.

The rooms are specious and the beds comfortable. As was typical of every place we stayed in Costa Rica, the shower was barely adequate. But it was functional, which was better than some places we stayed at.

Breakfast was filling and tasty and they know how to brew a good cup of coffee. There are a few dogs residing nearby that get a little noisy at times. They're very friendly, though.

A very nice place and great value.

This lodge is very close to town. We only stayed for 1 night because we were heading to another location. I wish I stayed for 3 nights. There is so much to do in Monteverde and this lodge is so clean and the rooms are very big. We had 2 double beds and a single bed in our room, a fridge and a little eating counter. The breakfast in the morning was so good! The price is right for a room and breakfast! The owners are very nice and gave us a choice of rooms. I would come here again when I go back to Monteverde!

Room Tip: I loved our room on the second floor, but in Febuary it is very windy so I heard the wind all night...

As many previous guest stated, it's very hard to sleep because all you hear is the wind and dogs! All night! However the service is impeccable, I never been to a BB, and I think I'll start booking more of these. The owners are all so kind and even offered us a welcome coffee.

I would be back :)

My wife and I stayed here in December 2013. The rooms were large, nice and affordable. The family that runs this place is super nice and accommodating too. We stayed two nights and will definitely return next time we are in Monteverde. It's a short walk to the main part of town, but it's off the main road so there is little traffic or noise. All in all, a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Past reviewers complained about wind noise, but it was pretty windy during our stay, and I didn'...

This modest accommodation was a lovely surprise when we arrived in Monteverde, Costa Rica. Rooms are large and very clean, but the best part of our experience at Villa Lodge was the incredible service we received from the proprietor and his wife. Exceptional people who continually went out of their way to make sure our stay was as comfortable and pleasing as possible. From arranging tours to cooking up an excellent breakfast which is incuded in the accommodation price. We highly recommend the Villa Lodge. Thanks for a great experience!

We stayed at Monteverde Villa Lodge for 3 nights in February 2014 and had a great stay. We had initially only booked 2 nights but liked it so much we stayed longer. The owner and his wife were super friendly and went out of their way to be welcoming, helpful and friendly. As soon as we arrived, we were offered refreshments and advice on local attractions and activities as well as help with booking these and onward travel at the end of our stay. The room was spatious and spotlessly clean, a little on the dark side but this wasn't a problem at all as we were out most of the day. The room had a microwave, fridge, kitchen sink and tv. The shower was lovely and hot. There were a number of options for breakfast and all were good and served with a smile. Overall, highly recommended, thank you for a lovely stay! Fantastic service.
