The true allways for my when I have to travel to Monteverde this is the best place, is like home. This family that own this hotel always make me happy. The breakfast is great, fruts, juice, gallo pinto, cafe and they have many options for breakfast if somebody wants something else.

We stayed at the Monteverde Villa Lodge for 4 nights in August 2012. From the moment we arrived, we enjoyed the warm hospitality of Ana and Heiner. (Heiner's brother operates the equally well-reviewed Monteverde Rustic Lodge.) Free coffee in the lobby, free internet terminal, sumptuous breakfast in the morning (they even save it for you if you rise late!). The...

Boyfriend and I stayed at Monteverde Villa Lodge on November 6th, 2012. The room was very clean and spacious with 2 queen beds. It had a flat screen TV, kitchen corner with fridge and decent size bathroom. The only minus was that the mattress was not very comfortable: we rolled a bit in the middle, but we had a full...

Ok, so we didn't meet everyone in Costa Rica during our trip last month, but Heiner and Ana were still two of the kindest folks we encountered during our adventure. We were warmly welcomed after a rather treacherous journey from Arenal (oh, the roads!). The room was simple, but well equipped and clean. On the morning of our departure, Heiner...

We were supposed to stay at the Rustic Lodge, but they over booked it, so they transfered us to the Villa Lodge. We were disapointed, but when we arrived to the Villa Lodge, we were surprised by the owner's kindness and the cleaness of the room we got. Owners are very helpful and they run the place perfectly. The breakfast...

One of the best places I had in Costa Rica, great foods, clean rooms,fast wifi, and the most important thing; great hospitality and freindly host who helped us to find attractions and even helped me with car without charging a cent. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for two nights. From the first moment we felt very welcome. Heiner and Ana are very kind and are very willing to help you with prodiving information and making reservations for activities. The rooms are spacious and breakfast is great. Every morning you can choose for a continental or Costa Rican typical breakfast. On the second morning...

This place had it all - safe neighbours, close to the city, comfortable rooms, cheap & excellent service! This is a family business and the owners go out of their way to book places for you, help you around the city and make sure you have a comfortable stay. The only drawback is that the rooms are a bit small....
