Great hospitality - they brought us cookies and shots of Bailey's to our room upon check-in. And there was a complimentary coffee station all day! Front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. Hotel was very clean, rooms were lovely, and the rain shower was amazing!! Didn't see a single bug in our room, which was a nice break from...

Dear Camden M, We are delighted to hear that you arrived to a clean, lovely room with a soothing rain shower after what sounds like a rougher patch in your itinerary! You're right, we do offer a complimentary goodie station with coffee, tea and treats. We also offer a special turn down service with liquor and cookies at least once...

Monteverde Lodge is just how you picture a mountain lodge in Costa Rica, with a fire place in the restaurant area and a cozy feel. The rooms fit into the simple lodge aesthetic and are comfortable. We had a balcony room which I recommend. The staff are attentive and helpful. We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant, and the...

Dear Nancy K, You're right, if guests want a massage, it's important to make a reservation as soon as you arrive OR you can write ahead of time and we'll hold the space.

Absolutely loved the Monteverde Lodge & Gardens! From the butterfly garden to the hummingbird gallery to the roaring fire in the lodge gathering room at night... what a beautiful place to relax and drink in the amazing scenery. Our room was clean as a pin and offered a great view of the white-faced monkeys that seemed to pass through every...

Dear Meilissa H, It sounds like you were a perfect fit for the lodge and that you explored the grounds and took advantage of every amenity available! This is wonderful and what we hope our guests will do. The monkeys come through most days and the signs behind your room door warning to be sure to close your balcony door...

Expensive for the area...but overall really clean, and nice location. Welcome drinks upon entry, and free coffee all day which was delicious. The pool was nice and warm so you were able to swim in it at night. In the evening the hotel provided us with a cute turndown service, cookies with a little shot of liqour... Really great experience.....

This hotel is located in monteverde and offers free wifi, free parking and free breakfast. The bedrooms are spacious and offer a magnificent view to the surroundings. Wild life offers entertainment as monkeys try to take your food or give you a handshake (just be careful they are still wild animals). The food is very good. The service was even...

The Monteverde lodge is a rustic style hotel situated at 1300m (4300 feet) above sea level. It is a 5 minute walk into the small local town of Monteverde where there are shops and restaurants and a 10 minute drive a steep hill to the entrance to the Monteverde nature reserve.

This is one of my favorite hotels in Costa Rica! We stayed in a lovely downstairs forest view room for 3 nights.

For example there is always a table set up at reception with free coffee and...

hotel perfectly adequate, food was delicious, but found the hotel itself a little cold and the water in the bathrooms was not hot. Clearly they were trying to be eco-friendly with their heating and hot water, but we felt it was a little TOO eco-friendly for us - we would have preferred it to be a little warmer! We did...

We had booked our room here in July, but that trip was doomed when Southwest Airlines has computer troubles that week, and couldn't get us to Costa Rica in a timely manner (half our trip would be done by the time they could get us there).
