Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica111 contributions48 helpful votes
I just spent 3 nights there with friends. Our room was comfortable, clean with a great view out the window. And the shower was wonderful. The bathroom had 2 sinks, plenty of towels and robes were provided. The trails on the grounds are worth taking a walk through, not only to see the plantings but we saw Mot Mots and other birds which we didn't see in the reserves. The Orchid dining room was a beautiful and interesting room. The breakfasts were delicious. They start you out with a plate of fresh fruits and wonderful toast and jam. The two soups at dinner time were delicious and filling. The front desk staff was very helpful in booking different excursions. We will definitely return.

Beautiful location, gardens, trails and rooms!! This was our last stop on a 7 day trip, the only regret was that we didn’t get to spend more time there. Breakfast was delicious, along with cocktails in the hotel bar. Highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Monteverde.

My fiancé and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and it was undoubtedly the best hotel experience we’ve ever had. The hospitality was incredible starting from the welcome drink when we arrived to every staff member asking and remembering our names! The front desk staff was super helpful with local tips and setting up tours, even on late notice. They also let us know we had free breakfast included, which we didn’t know when we booked! But the stars of the show were the restaurant staff, namely Erick and Kevin who took the time to get to know us, were always present without being overbearing and always led us in the right direction for meals and drinks. We appreciated everyone’s unique spin on Tico Sours. The room was great, very comfortable bed and a huge bathroom. Turndown service was appreciated and it was nice to unplug with no TV in the rooms. The pool area was quiet and relaxing and there were short hiking trails around the property that we enjoyed as well. This was our first time staying in a smaller hotel and we would highly recommend for the personalized service and exquisite attention to detail. We hope to return soon.

Hotel has nice lush garden, breakfast and dinner are very tasty and plenty. Loved the warmth of the cozy fireplace after getting soaking wet during the zip lining trip. Hotel is easy walking distance to the restaurants and bars of the town:-)

A big hello from the cloudforest of Monteverde! Thank you for sharing your experience of your stay at our lodge. One of our advantages is our location! Secluded amidst our lush garden but close to town and its ammenities. We do agree our fireplace is the perfect place to unwind after a day of ziplining adventures! We hope to have you back at Monteverde Lodge and at any of our sister lodges: Tortuga Lodge, Pacuare Lodge and Lapa Rios Lodge.

This hotel is in lovely grounds and very peaceful. The staff are amazing and all greet you by name! We ate twice in the restaurant and the food was excellent! We loved sitting on our little balcony, looking down on the cloud forest and watching animals scamper through the trees. The only downside was that the room did not have a fridge and we needed that for items as part of a special diet. The staff helped us make do with ice from the bar.

Great place to stay. The accommodations and grounds are beautiful. The staff makes the extra effort to exceed your expectations. Most attractions are a short ride away and it is an easy walk to town. The breakfast and lunch menus at the hotel are very good, the dinner menu was somewhat limited but we walked to town and tried a different restaurant every night which added to the experience.

I enjoyed my stay at Monteverde Lodge so much. It's a pretty quiet and restful place even though it's not that far from town. I loved my room which was quite spacious and had the most comfortable bed and a patio that overlooked a little stream (I was on the first floor). The grounds were expansive and had different trails that included different seating and gathering areas, you could even have breakfast or lunch brought out so you can dine al fresco. The way my reservation was set up, all of my meals were included. Oh my gosh. The food was so unbelievably good, from breakfast to dinner to the desserts. Just to get some local flavor, I should have had a meal in town, but between activities and being tired, the convenience and menu of the restaurant was hard to resist. There is a separate dining room on the lower level that is filled with beautiful orchids and you can ask to take your meals there. The staff was so amazing and friendly I looked forward to seeing them every day. The folks at the front desk helped me make some last minute arrangements to do some more excursions and tolerated my horrible Spanish (which I am working on). The restaurant staff was also so friendly and accommodating, especially the night I asked for just toast for dinner because I was too tired to eat. You are also close to town so you are within walking distance of the Frog Pond and local restaurants and other excursion opportunities.

We had a fantastic 3 nights at Monteverde lodge. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The views of the cloud forest, the gardens and heated pool were great. The restaurant and bar were delicious for dinner and drinks. Most of all the service was wonderful - all the staff were so lovely and amazing to ensure we had a delightful stay! We would highly recommend to all and will definitely be back in the future.
