My fiancé and I stayed here for three nights, and the owners could not have been more kind and helpful. We originally planned to stay four nights but needed to leave early. They were so sweet and helped arrange this change of plans, from transportation pickup to letting us use their phone to call another hotel. This was my first... More

Heiner and his family run a very nice hotel in Santa Elena. The whole family has been very friendly and helpful around everything - arranging trips, communication, etc. We went to a bird watching tour in the cloud forest reserve that was tailored to our needs (most importantly we spotted the Quetzal ;-)) Wifi is good and stable - there...

The owners of his lovely lodge are very friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond to get us transport. The cabins are lovely, clean and spacious. The common area is gorgeous with paintings and hand made tables. Great breakfast and coffee. Also in a quiet location but an easy walk to town. Parking for those who need it.

This review is a little late, we stayed at the Monteverde Villa Lodge over the Christmas holiday. We loved this hotel. The location was a quick walk to town and the rooms were huge!

My wife and I had a wonderful stay here. We stayed a week, enjoying the available activities in and around Monteverde. We had a private, stand alone cabana that was very comfortable, clean and quite spacious. We loved the breakfast and coffee or tea was available throughout the day. It was an easy walk to town for supplies or to... More

Property is the best it can be, considering its location in a sketch part of sketch Santa Elena. In March it was choking with dust from all the limestone roads, very windy, noisy day and night with LOUD unmuffled motorcycles (the main transport for locals), with barking neighbor dogs all night, every night. This is no quiet, restful rainforest stay!... More

This is small lodge out of village center. Rooms are average and the staff is nice. The problem was that early in the morning there was a lot of noise from the neighborhood. The staff said it is not a regular problem but we had decided to leave.

When we checked in, Milena gave us a choice of 2 rooms and took the large room upstairs with a wonderful vaulted wood ceiling.
