My boyfriend and I had a great stay at the Villa Lodge. The villas are spacious and clean, and there is a nice garden area with lots of trees and vegetation. Every staff member we spoke to was really nice and helpful. The staff booked us on 4 great excursions during our time here. It is a small family business...

Recently visited here and received a warm welcome with a large room, massive breakfast and good wifi etc. They helped us book lots of tours and travel around with excellent service. Would definitely stay again. Only comment is that showers were never really warm...at best lukewarm and only for a minute at that.

Wonderful family-run hotel, décor is gorgeous, and the staff will actually try to help (instead of just making a buck). There is a cash discount if you ask, and considering how far-flung most of the attractions are in Monteverde, the location works out fine.

We stayed at the hotel for two nights. Heiner and his family helped us in the organization and a confirmation of tours that we booked at the agency. Our tour operator took the money but did not order us to tour. So be careful and check, do not hesitate to confirm your tours. Very clean and comfortable hotel with a...

Had I checked more thoroughly on Despegar.com I might have known the error on my 3 day reservation. Ugh, so much for the bargain and $75 for one night on my Visa. Then, 2 hours later I stumbled off the ramp from my room while going out to look at the stars. Broke my Nike Fuel bracelet. Not good. So...

Wonderful place. Great value. It was a 10 minute walk into town. The owners were very helpful with every aspect of our visit, including arranging for tours of the wildlife reserves. They also helped us pick restaurants. The cabin room was spacious and had a nice patio. Great breakfasts. We recommend this lodge!

A small out of the way B & B just 5 minutes walking distance to the town centre. The hospitality is second to none, the breakfast ( included) was more than enough to get you moving for the day. The rooms are clean and well thought out. My wife and I shared a room with our daughter and her husband...

Heiner and his staff treated my wife and I like family throughout our stay in Monteverde. In fact, even before we arrived, he assisted in helping us set up tours and transportation and was always helpful and prompt with his responses. While his hospitality was exceptional, the convenience of the location of the lodge was also excellent. Walking distance to...
