Stayed here a couple of nights last December. Doing a round trip one sees a number of hotels and places. This was a very nice place. First comment when we entered the room (we had room #4) was "what an adorable room'. Second one was that it was a small place. I think that was the only downside, the room...

We spent a wonderful two nights at the Cala Lodge. We were in the main lodge and had a beautiful view of the forest. Our little balcony provided us with the perfect viewing spot. The room was was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. The bathroom was also quite large with a tall ceiling. There was no TV but...

it was unfortunate that our stay at Cala Lodge was during a tropical storm although I suspect that it is wet and windy there a lot of the time. Our room - number 4 was not in the main building but in a block of rooms set within the grounds a short walk away. It was rather a small, basic...

Amazing! Place is nice and clean. Staff are out of this world! So friendly and helpful. If I return to Monteverde I will definitely stay here again. And there are monkeys! Close to town- about a 15-20 minute walk- and an hour walk or 10 minute taxi ride to the cloud forest.

Great Choice of hotel just a few minutes from downtown, but far enough so that you won't hear anything else than the sound of birds, Monkey, and wind. The bedroom was comfortable, the staff very pleasant, and the breakfast offers many choices with fresh fruits.

This is a great place to stay to enjoy Monteverde! The owners are extremely sweet and were eager to please everyone. There are monkeys, coati, toucan, and several other birds which are right outside and you can watch them all day! The rooms are very accommodating and they recycle everything! Need to learn from them on how to care for...

It is very disappointing to read your review. We wished that you have said something about the room when you first check in. That way we would have been able to corroborate the information and make it up to you. However, it is very difficult to find a way to solve or fix something that wasn’t correct for a customer...

We simply loved our stay at the Cala Lodge---the room was comfortable, cozy and clean. The staff was so warm, helpful and attentive. The location was just perfect--we saw wonderful birds in the AM during each breakfast, and the jungle made for an awesome view each time. We definitely recommend! Top 3 things here? 1.

This lodge is so well loved and in the perfect setting. It is an easy walk to the downtown of Monteverde. Very clean and quiet. A cute white-faced monkey and many birds visited the balcony while we were eating a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit and eggs or continental of your choice.

Cala lodge was one of our favorite hotels to stay in Costa Rica. The location is nice and quiet away from the center. You have a nice view, rooms are charming. There is a small pitoresque trail around the lodges which you can walk (~5 mins) We had a nice balcony where we could observe the many birds and now...
