The rooms were basic, very old mattresses, paper thin sheets. Wifi did not work in our room at all, and when I inquired I was told " it doesn't always work in room 7". There is no pool, as on review stated, which was a huge disappointment to our son, and one of the reasons we chose it. Staff were...

The room was clean, spacious. The staff very friendly. The breakfast was amazing. The owner, like so many Costa Ricans, was super happy and accommodating. We spent two nights, did all the tours and were happy to call this place our home while there.

From the moment we arrived in Monteverde, we felt a sense of calm. Our stay at Villa Lodge was quiet and comfortable. We were located slightly outside (walking distance) of Santa Elena which made us feel a bit of serenity. The room felt like a vaulted ceiling cabin and was nice but not over luxurious. It had a small kitchenette....

From the moment we arrived at night, the manager was so friendly and seemed excited to host us. I mentioned sloths, and he took us right into the nearby woods with a flashlight to try and find one. We were able to buy very tasty wine that night. Breakfast was so much more than expected. Choice of different dishes, coffee,...

Was quite nervous about the accommodation as it didn't cost us much. I guess it was reasonably basic but very well presented, clean and comfortable. Staff were really friendly and the food decent with more than you could want. Within a short most things in Monteverde and the reception organised pick ups for us for attractions further out. These were...

This small family-run hotel was good value for the money. The host was friendly and attentive to all/any needs. The room was spacious and clean and the [included] breakfast was freshly made with ample portions. It is a 10-15 minute walk to most of the restaurants in town.

Monteverde is a magical place. The hotel was great. The staff was extremely friendly. They found guides for a night hike and another for a day hike. The guides and the hikes were amazing. We saw a huge green snake (we asked to see one!), as well as toucans, mammals, and more.

The hotel room is clean and simple. No air conditioning, but not needed during our stay. The breakfast served was very good and ample. As others have noted the lodge is somewhat away from town, but so are most other hotels. It's about a 15 minute walk down a dusty dirt road to town. There's a few decent restaurants all...

Heiner was very nice to pick us up at another hotel that could not accommodate us, when I mix d up the arrival date. My daughter and I are very happy with the location and room and we feel safe. I'd recommend this place to friends.
