The hotel has the friendliest staff. Eva was our go-to person for suggestions around Monteverde. We had an amazing stay because of her. The hotel was located at a very nice spot where you can do a small hike. You can also sit on the patio to watch animals that come by to visit or just look at the view...

Stayed at Hotel Cala Lodge for 3 nights on our honeymoon. Overall, the accommodation was pleasant, the staff were helpful and friendly, and the free breakfast was lovely. The room itself was fairly basic, the wifi signal a bit weak, and a little dark in the main part where the double beds are (the mattresses of which are fairly firm)....

This is a fabulous place! The rooms are small but very nice, with a rustic chic decor. Our room had a large picture window to a breath-talking view, along with a small balcony where we sat and watched birds and critters dart around. The staff could not have been more helpful, cheerfully answering questions and going above and beyond to...

We had a short but enjoyable stay at this hotel. Josie and the other girls at reception were extremely polite, helpful and friendly. Josie gave us a suggestion for dinner in town (Morphos - very good and included a free drink) as only breakfast is provided at the hotel, and called a taxi for us, which was only $4 USD....

We spent a lovely week at this hotel. There is a great wildlife garden right off the veranda. While we were there a pair of Emerald Toucanets were nesting providing us with lots of bird watching entertainment. There also many other birds around as well including the beautiful Mot Mot. The staff was very friendly and worked hard to meet...

Located in the middle of the wood, it's the perfect place to stay to see birds or other animal from your balcony. Karen at the reception was really helpful and nice. I recommend staying there for those who like to relax.

The welcome is warm and friendly in this lodge in Monteverde. We were upgraded to a suite with kitchen which was extremely spacious and comfortable. The furniture is old but this ads to the charm and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast was included and was delicious with lots of options. There are beautiful views. It's best to have a car...

My family and I (4 adults) spent a little over week in Costa Rica, and our three nights in Cala Lodge were definitely the highlight of our trip. We had taken a transport from Arenal to Monteverde, and were the last group to arrive at our hotel. After having been to several other lodgings in the area as other groups...
