This place is a 10 minute rough drive from town. We loved the room, it's absolutely beautiful, bed was huge and lots of storage area to keep the room tidy. There are several short walks you can do inside the property, and they offer their own zipline and night tour. Restaurant was great and service was exceptional (thanks Gustavo)! Also...

We had a delightful visit to this lodge. Very helpful staff including Diana at the front desk and Gustavo in the restaurant. Beautiful views of the garden, forest and sunset. Feeders are set up and you can get awesome photographs of the hummingbirds. We enjoyed the quiet walks along the nature trails. This is a real bonus as some of...

This is a lovely lodge set high in the cloud forest. There is not a bad view anywhere on the property. The staff take great care of the grounds. There are several magnificent hiking trails to enjoy - on the property. They have the original zip line (in the world) on their property, and a great night tour. The restaurant...

It’s been almost a week since we got back from our trip and we’re still reeling over this delightful lodge. Everything about this place is perfect—from their sweeping mountain views to their delicious breakfasts and eco-friendly efforts. I think there were about 10 cabanas that are perched on the mountaintop property, and while we certainly had a beautiful view from...

Great location, sort of a "mountain retreat". Cabins were nice sized and views of the forest are outstanding. Wilberth, Gerente General, was extremely helpful as were all the other employees. The restaurant utilizes local produce and meat which results in great meals. View from the restaurant is unbelievable. Various hiking trails are available for nature walks. Drive to the area...

The Cloud Forest Lodge is set up the hill from the town of Monteverde right alongside the cloud forest reserve. The lodge consists of a dozen or so duplex units on beautifully kept grounds. There's activities nearby, a shuttle stop right in front of the lodge (which is at the end of the road) and a couple trails that take...

We stayed in a duplex-style cabin (B1) for four days five nights at the beginning of the "dry "season, arriving November 29th, leaving December 4th. Great weather, although sometimes very windy at night- inside the cabin, the sound of the wind was similar to the surf at the beach, relaxing. I emailed the Lodge about a month in advance to...
