Monteverde Country Lodge
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in Santa Elena
Reviewed April 24, 2013

That's all I could say when we arrived at this hotel, very modern super clean. The staff were very pleasant and helpful with arranging excursions. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the service was friendly. Would highly recommend this hotel. Is only a short walk to town and a $3.00 taxi ride back.

Dear Mr Bower. Thank you for your comments and for recommending Monteverde Country Lodge to others. Your feedback will allow us to improve, correct and supervise the standard of service and to achieve excellence.
We try our best to provide the best service, best experience and to show the old fashioned - Mountain style of hotels from the classic Monteverde. We do recommend our guests to book Superior rooms, not that Classic rooms are bad, they are just more basic.
Other hotel amenities, open grounds, corridors, balconies, playground and Costa Rican Style restaurant are excellent ways to enjoy your stay even more.
Our location, close to town yet, on a more quiet, relaxed area, allows to enjoy the town life, night life, tours, dining, shopping, and more, several choices of food, attractions and natural areas are very close by.
Our sister property, Hotel Poco a Poco, offer guests the chance to enjoy the pool, jacuzzi, spa and restaurant!!
Monteverde Country Lodge is indeed the best value hotel within its range!!!
Thank you and happy travels!!!

Beautiful cozy place! from the moment you arrive you start feeling the warm personality of the hotel staff, they are always ready to help and make your stay a most confortable one.

There is live music in the dinning room, the stage is located in a corner and may be a little too tight but yet it is a great value when you have dinner and a singer/guitarist plays some background music. Great place, great people and great atmosphere!

I traveled here with a group of students and the staff was super nice. They made a special soup for two of my students who weren't feeling well. The rooms are decent for Monteverde. There is nice tile floor and the beds are comfortable.

We had a lovely welcome in arrival and a welcome drink. Our room was okay , clean which is the most important thing -but the walls were paper thin and it felt like the people in the next room were actually in the same room.
The lodge lacked atmosphere - there was a restaurant - we had a meal there but the service was impersonal and the food was average. I would not stay here again. The sister hotel had more facilities but was a taxi ride away or a longish walk, but as we were only there for two nights we did not experience this.

The staff at the lodge were very friendly and welcoming, greeting us with a fresh fruit drink upon check-in. The welcome area is updated and comfortable and the staff were helpful in assisting us with tours and a massage with their sister hotel, Poco Poco.
The rooms are basic and felt like I was at camp. The worst part was that the walls are very thin and I could hear the t.v. in the room next to us very well. The wind gusts were 40-50 mph and it felt like sleeping in a wind tunnel. There is no heater, and the blankets were thin, so it was cold!
The included breakfast buffet was good and staff were attentive.

A nice enough hotel with a decent restaurant. The rooms are just OK but the big problem is super thin walls. You can pretty much hear everything going on in the adjacent rooms. The worst part is it's very windy and misty up in the Cloud Forrest of Monteverde. Do sleeping at night is like being inside a wind tunnel. One night actually resembled the sounds of a hurricane outside. I'm convinced that it was windy but that the thin structure made it that much worse. I say this now, but who knows if it's different anywhere else -- I think that's just the nature of the weather up there. Best part of staying here, however, is having access to the amenities of the best hotel in town: Poco a Poco. They have an awesome pool, spa, and restaurant. All of which we took advantage of.

I go to Monteverde often and I did like this place. The rooms where clean and the place overall was very good. The restaurant I liked very much, although they did not have many different dish options. The service was good on the restaurant, but not on every shift of the reception, probably there was someone that was not on the same page as the other ones. Overall a nice cousy hotel, close enouhg to town, clean and beautiful. Would recommended.
