“Great place for all adventurous people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Nice and cozy place. It's not a place for people who like luxury and complain for the smallest thing. We had a great time though enjoying every minute there! Greg and Nancy were amazing and willing to help anytime we needed something.

I am absolutely amazed to see bad reviews about La Colina Lodge! The place is very nice, has a lot of character and we loved it! The rooms are good size, the food was good, the location is amazing, Nanci and Greg were extremely helpful with everything we needed.

Highly recommend, unless you are spoiled and are expecting the Ritz in the middle of the jungle!

DO NOT pay attention to the negative comments, the place is absolutely amazing!

Thank you Greg and Nanci, we loved it!

We booked this Hotel through a Costa Rican travel book. We are a family of 5, we have 3 boys aged 14,13 and 9. We booked 2 rooms to accommodate our family size. Upon arrival of this beautiful Lodge, Nanci and Greg were there to greet us. Inside the dining area/living room is brightly painted with a real home away from home feel. Our boys loved sitting in this room where they enjoyed free wii fi after a day of activities. Our room included breakfast which was nothing short of amazing. Greg is a creative cook. His dinner meals were awesome as well. Well worth staying in the lodge for and very economical. Especially for a family our size. Monteverde can be quite chilly so ask for extra linen if you need it for your bed. If you are a light sleeper make sure you bring some ear plugs as there are roosters outside that get up fairly early. We arranged all of our tours with Trish. She was was so helpful. When we arrived everything was organized and ready to go. We will love to stay at La Colina Lodge when we return !

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the side the rooster/chickens roam.

There are lots of outdoor activities to do in Monteverde such as horseback riding, zip lining, touring coffee plantations, hiking to the waterfalls and so much more. La Colina is a very homey place to stay. The owner Nancy is extremely friendly and very helpful. She is a very caring and giving person. Staying at La Colina is like staying in a home away from home.

Stopping in Monteverde for a week doing yoga training we stayed at La Colina Lodge. Nanci is so hospitable and accomodating. She really makes you feel at home. We felt like we were just hanging out at her house even though she was putting in a tremendous amount of work to pull the whole thing together. We were doing yoga in a beautiful space with a wooden floor and windows looking out into the cloud forest. I believe she had converted her own bedroom/apartment space to accomodate our group. It was a very special spot. The rooms and accomodations are modest, if you're looking for 5 star you're barking up the wrong tree. If you want to hang out, relax and be at peace in the cloud forest with a laid back hostess, this place is highly recommended.

We was a NY couple that was eager to explore costs rica to the fullest. We stayed at this lodge for 5 days and we absolutely loved it. Nancy the owner always have gave us great service and accommodated us when we needed . They offer breakfast for only 5 bucks per person and the room with private bathroom is only 35 bucks which is very affordable. Will say their is animals located throughout the lodge so if you are allergic to cats and dogs it not recommended you choose this place. Unless you just don't go in the living room. Nana a employee working their offered great service, did laundry service for us, and gave us great insight on costa rica places and culture. Overall, experience was amazing here. WIll say the owner daughter could be a bit friendlier, as she seem"s isolated to the guess that stays their. Will say if their any problems the owner will always accommodate you if you want a different room, more food, and overall any type of service she will try her best to make sure your cormfortable. Great perks you can go to a jacuzzi for just staying their for free, get coffee delivered if you want to buy for super cheap, and get connections to places for super cheap.! Thank you for everything !!
