Just home from our 2 week adventure to Costa Rica,
Rainbow Valley lodge in Santa Elena was our first stop and I can honestly say it was our favourite place!
The Location in perfect, we stayed 3 nights in the upper room, which has amazing views over the valley, it felt really private sitting on the enclosed balcony watching birds glide in the wind.
It's only about an 8 to 10 minute walk into town where you can find some nice restaurants and a couple of supermarkets.
The room is kind of rusticly decorated but super clean, and the wifi connection is excellent, great for sending messages home.
But what makes Rainbow Valley stand out from other lodges/hotels we stayed at was Christian the manager, he is such a great guy, genuinely friendly and so helpful, he drove us into town looking out for Sloths, booked us on a great night tour and a tour of Monteverde reserve with him as a guide which was excellent - a must do, we also got some great pics though his scope!
We booked our stay though Rolf via email who was also very helpful, even giving us Spanish phrases to stay to the taxi dropping us off.
This is place was an amazing find and is great value, don't look any further book your stay here!!
