“great place while in Santa Elena”
Reviewed December 4, 2010

We stayed in Villa Lodge for 2 nights. We found the place to be safe,quiet and CLEAN. There was free internet access. Breakfast (fruit, gallo pinto,eggs, coffee ,fresh breads) was perfect. Our cabin had all the comforts of home (a fridge, a TV, hot water etc..)and was cleaned daily. Location-away from the main street,offering a quiet environment and good sleep (a five minute walk into town). The owners Ana and Heiner were simply amazing, super helpful and welcoming.They gave us great recommendations and made reservations with local tours. We were totally impressed with the sandwiches that we got for our morning trip to Montezuma (Heiner-the best sandwiches we've ever eaten-thanks!!!) If we ever return to Santa Elena we will definitely stay here again. Thank you Ana and Heiner.

The hotel is very nice and new. The rooms are really big, the staff very nice and the center 10 minutes by foot. I really recommend the Villa Lodge in Monteverde.

We stayed in Monteverde Villa Lodge for 2 nights. Very nice lodge! Beautiful, spacious and clean cabins. Very good breakfast, which is served in our room. Heiner and Ana, the owners of the lodge, are very friendly and helped us a lot with our further tour planning. Thank you, we enjoyed our stay at your hotel very much!

My two-night stay at the lodge inspired me to write my first TripAdvisor review. Heiner and Ana were extremely welcoming and helpful - the best service we had in Costa Rica! We felt right at home in one of the cabin-style rooms. The room was very clean and spacious. The breakfast that was brought into our room each morning was delicious. I can't say enough good things about this charming place! If you are looking for a comfortable stay with friendly serivce, I highly recommend the lodge.

if you want to find nice place with good service and very nice rooms
to feel safe im Monteverde (Monteverde it is a place with a lot of clouds and cold - so you need warm place with good people around)

I travelled for 2 weeks in Costa Rica with a friend, and we were delighted by our stay at the MVL. After a long and tiring van ride, we were greeted by the owner, Henar, and his family. They were all very nice, and he immediately gave us great recommendations and even called to set up reservation with local tours. It is a short walk to the bustling downtown area, with a lot of great restaurants and nightlife options. I am glad we didn't stay downtown, which was far too loud. If you're travelling on a budget, you can't beat the value. I would definitely recommend this hotel to any traveller.

We just got back from a three week stay in Costa Rica. Of these three weeks we chose to spend the last three days at the Monteverde Villa Lodge. The room was cleaned every day and the people there are fantastic, almost like an extended family. Several times Heiner, the owner, come out and showed or looked at birds with us that were right out our front door. Every morning toucans, parrots and many other smaller birds could be seen. They helped us decide what to see and made many of the reservations for us. Monteverde Villa is a small place that has friendly people and a great place to stay. Each morning our breakfast was delivered to our room and because we drank so much of that wonderfun Costa Rican coffee Heiner would bring us a second serving of coffee. I would not hesitate to go back. Thanks Heiner for sharing your family and town with us!
