This is a fantastic lodge in the cloud forest, providing excellent rooms, food and grounds to explore. Our group was met with the most delicious cocktail of rum and fruit juice. We were immediately taken by how beautiful the grounds were and the hummingbirds flying to the feeders set up right beside the main restaurant lounge area which are always... More

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 September 2016 via mobile

We just finished our 3 day stay at the lodge. The rooms are basic and clean. Do not expect too many amenities, no TV only one face cloth, no heat. The road in is long and unpaved. With that said the place has great views, lots of hummingbirds, we saw monkeys in the canopy below. There is a pizcoati that... More

This hotel is absolutely beautiful. The grounds, room, and the people, everything was fantastic. Getting there was a bit of a drive, but worth it for this hidden gem. The resort is tucked away from the rest of the city and the crowds. My only complaint would be that the beds were a little hard and the pillows a bit... More

The Monteverde Cloud Forest Lodge provides comfortable accommodations with spacious rooms in a garden setting. The rustic rooms face nicely tended gardens and there are a number of hiking trails surrounding the grounds. The bar area has a number of hummingbird feeders outside the windows and it is delightful to see these little creatures feeding. There's packs of agoutis and... More

Thank you very much for your review. We are working on getting better Wifi in the rooms. Because the Lodge is located in an isolated area and the humidity of the cloud forest, it has been hard to get an efficient system. Thanks again. More

I liked this hotel very much and found it extremely relaxing and very quiet. The rooms are basic but good enough for a couple of nights, although it is far away from the main town. The gardens are very well kept, you will see a range of activity from the dining room, particularly with the humming bird feeders. For me... More

To be honest: we had expected a little more from this accommodation. It went wrong on the basics: de beds were not comfortable, as were the cushions. And the little cabanas were not sound proof: everytime our neighbours said something to each other, we could hear everything. Bath room was very nice, though. Staff was friendly and we even got...

Nothing really stands out for this place for me, good or bad. The cabines are a bit rusty but clean. The view from most of them is to the parking lot and trash cans which ruins the experience of being in the cloud forest. The food is not great but also not bad....

The lodge was set within its own part of the cloud forest and had a very peaceful relaxed atmosphere. The staff were very welcoming, accommodating and always smiling.
