We spent 2 nights in this lodge that met our needs. The room was a bit stuffy with no fans and minimal windows to open. The room was clean and grounds were pleasant. It can be noisey especially if you have groups of kids there which they had when we were there. They don't have much staff so patience is...

Individual buildings are among finely landscaped setting. Great pool area and friendly staff. Incredible view of Arenal Volcano! Peaceful and convenient. Shuttle service to rooms and easy to get transportation to all local attractions.

My friend and I stayed here in March for two nights. It's a good hotel with basic but clean rooms. It is an eco hotel so they don't have air conditioning but we didn't need it. The grounds are very nice. The only negative would be the breakfast buffet. Compared to other places we stayed, it leaves a bit to...

This is a modest hotel but it was the first one that we visited in Costa Rica that had really hot water. The onsite restaurant and bar were very good. The 2 for 1 happy hour was a nice treat! The only setback was the lack of a view of any kind.

This hotel is actually in the town of Santa Elena not Monteverde, a few kilometres up the road. Our room was quite basic with a small tv.

30 minute walk from town or a 4 dollar taxi ride, a pleasant hotel but nothing special. Rooms have decent beds, but the hot water is sporadic and there is no fridge.

Monteverde is cold and windy, but we slept very well. The room was a little damp, but I imagine that is difficult to avoid in Monteverde. The breakfast was lovely, and the hotel reception staff and very helpful in booking activities and giving general advice about the town. Definitely a good choice for a night in the mountains.

This lodge was part of an independent travel package and described as "rustic". The front desk lobby personnel were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was decent. The room was bare bones but did have cable TV with HBO. Close enough to walk to several restaurants, a mini-grocery store and walkable into town if you are athletic.
