We booked this hotel because it got good reviews on trip advisor, and my boyfriend had a great experience in the cloud forest in Ecuador. There are pros and cons to this hotel, use them to make up your own mind. Pros: beautiful views, wildlife,...More

Thanks for your review! You must have been traveling with Chris. He mentions basically the same issues you do.

Thank you very much for your review! I am glad you had a great stay at our Lodge and I will surely check on the trails to improve the markings. Thanks again!!

The lodge reflects the natural surroundings - nothing fancy yet very appropriate and cozy installations suited for the environment (wooden construction, good cleanliness, comfortable bunks, very courteous staff, good down-to-earth simple yet tasty local cuisine, outstanding coffee). Don't expect room service, cable TV, etc. although...More

This resort is fairly far from the town of Monteverde. If you have a rental car, no problem. Private transportation would be too pricey.

Hi !! Yes there is a safe in the room, a hairdryer and coffee maker. You will be required to leave a credit card or a $ 25.00 deposit for the safe in case you loose the key.
