This simple lodge occupies one of the most beautiful parcels of land in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I loved the cool climate, clean air, and views of the sunset from the central lodge. Don’t expect great luxury—do expect well-groomed grounds, great value, and superb staff (the team helped arrange a packed itinerary for me at the last minute, for which I was deeply grateful). Side note: I cannot recommend the adjacent Original Canopy Experience enough—zooming through the trees and across the valley made me appreciate this site that much more!

If you want to experience a real cloud forest you need to stay at its edge, out of the village. Cloud Forest Lodge is all in one, serene accommodations with amenities of the upmarket hotels, with its own zipline and free trails, has a classy restaurant with the ocean view and in the mornings you may encounter armadillos wandering around the property. A perfect choice!

First we want to thank anyone who visited Costa Rica and especially who stayed at our hotel. We are very happy to receive the comments of our guests, with them we give an account of what experience they have and how good it is to know that they had a good time and that they could enjoy the essence of a cloud forest, how people can have a great time well without altering the environment. Thank you very much and we hope that one day you can visit us again.

We booked this for one night. It is in middle of the jungle. We wanted to have feel of the cloud forest and planned to see wildlife in the area. Unfortunately, it rained cats and dogs during our entrire stay. Still, we did night tour and saw more birds than we saw during our other stays combined. The lodge consist of 16 seperate room structures. Rooms were cosy and had all the amenities. Just make sure to check windows before turning on lights since.being in middle of the forest has its disadvantages. Night tour was.perfect mixture of excitement, fear and wonder (rain too). We saw Taranatula, waiting for a prey, a toucan sleeping under its wings and a lizard. In the morning during our breakfast saw Toucans, Hummingbirds. Overall, we loved our sray at the lodge. Definetly would recommend.

We arrived in the evening to Monteverde- beautiful area high up in the mountains. Stayed in the primitive cabins with bathroom and lots of room - no tv. Had a delicious breakfast and got to see zip lining right across the lodge and the forest! This hotel has multiple hiking trails and provide night tour as well. Highly recommended.

I loved this place. I was amazed right when we drove up-- it sits literally at the intersection of the cloud forest ecosystem. There was a constant, amazing rain that descended from the mountains above and quickly faded once it hit the warmth of the hills below the lodge. A rare sight. This hotel is straight-forward, comfortable, and slightly rural. I speak spanish fluently and everyone who works here was very kind, super hospitable, and very happy to be working again after this very hard year for tourism in Costa Rica. The Monteverde region is chilly compared to most of Costa Rica-- bring a jacket and long pants. There's plenty of blankets on the beds and extra in the closet for sleeping warm and comfortably. This isn't the Ritz, but for lovers of nature and birding, it's a slice of Jurassic Park just for you.
