We really enjoyed our one night stay. The rooms are little cabins, our was steps away from the forest. It was a wonderful experience to sit outside on our patio and just watch and listen to the wildlife. The room was nice and spacious. Breakfast was included and was plentiful and delicious. Dinner was also quite good. We walked one...

There are not too many amenities in the room, but there was nothing wrong with that. The rooms are actually quite spacious and clean. It's in a gorgeous location in Monteverde, the views are fantastic, service is good. The trail hikes are a nice little bonus. We saw several monkeys around the river trail It is in a pretty secluded...

We stayed 3 nights in this lodge. It is a little way out of town up a very bumpy track, but this is the reason to stay here. It is on the edge of the forest and excellent for wildlife spotting, howler and white faced monkeys, humming birds, coti mundi, hawks and tarantulas are just a few of the visitors...

The attached cabins don't look like much but they are just perfect and beautiful on the inside. We felt like we were in a ski lodge. Animal sightings everywhere- humming birds, monkeys, coati, and tons more. Food was excellent. Canopy tour was one of our favorite activities of the entire trip and super convenient being on site. Be prepared to...

My wife and I wanted to visit the Monteverde Cloud Forest to see the rich biodiversity of this region, while at the same time spend some relaxing time away form home. We had the pleasure of spending 3 nights in a rustic, meticulously-cared-for, extremely friendly home with nature at our front door step! The grounds around the lodge are home...

Stayed at this lodge for 2 nights, loved the fact that there is no television in the room. They do have wifi. The rooms are rustic looking and kind of classy in its own way.

We were there early June 2016 on an anniversary trip. We had 4 beautiful nights. The rooms are rustic, but clean and comfortable. If you are trying to escape nature this isn't the place for you. The views of the jungle make it feel like you have escaped. Food was very good, and town was a short drive away. Gustavo...

Stayed at the lodge 3 nights. Every aspect of the stay was enjoyable- food, drinks, and staff. If you go make sure you say hi to Gustavo who works behind the bar most nights. He is a wealth of knowledge and will surprise you with his stunning cocktails. Only critique, hotel advertises in room wifi. During the 3 days I...

The good points are the views, the location right in the cloud forest and friendly staff. Not so good points are the accommodation, which is quite basic; the food is average and it is more than a walk into the town for alternatives.

Thanks for your review. Yes our accommodations are basic. We do not have TV or telephone in our rooms. We are a Lodge in the Cloud Forest. And yes, we are right in the Cloud Forest which is the main reason people visit the Monteverde Cloud Forest. I hope you have enjoyed your stay.
