“Just wonderful”
Reviewed 1 April 2014 via mobile

We arrived yesterday and enjoying a breakfast right now in a room that let's you know...this is Monteverde. This place just makes you feel right at home. Rooms are specious, clean and cozy. The service is warm, personal and spot on. It's amazing how much they achieved in such a short time. Highly highly recommended.

Stayed March 2014, travelled with friends

We stayed here during our visit to the Monteverde Rain Forest and to zipline. We felt very taken care of and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!

This property consists of individual cabins a 10 minute walk on dirt roads to "downtown". The walk is a bit dusty and no sidewalk. No problem if you wear good shoes. Dirt roads are everywhere here so it was not a shock.
The room was large and comfortable. Good, hot shower. Bed was comfortable.Wifi is reliable!
We also enjoyed a delicious breakfast - choice of Costa Rican breakfast, eggs/toast or pancakes. Good coffee too, which we bought several bags to take home.
Heiner booked us a coffee tour, zip lining, night walk tour and monteverde cloud forest tours. All which were exceptional.

There is no internet booking for this lodge which I could find, but they are very quick to respond to emails.
It was very windy during our stay and the wind howled all night. Some dust blew in under the door but nothing major.

Overall a great value and definitely recommended if looking for a cabin-type stay!

What an amazing find. This small simple lodge was recommended by another local lodge when it was full. We only stayed one short night but I wished I could stay more. The owners were lovely, the room was clean the location was just outside of town and the breakfast was delicious. Anna set us up with an amazing tour guide for Monteverde Cloud forest. Highly recommend.

We stayed for two nights during last February in Monteverde Villa Lodge. The hospitality of Heiner and Ana is great. The room was extremely spacious and very clean. We got very helpful advices from the couple on restaurants in Santa Elena, as well as, on sites around the city. They booked for us visits (including transportation) to the hanging bridges and to a coffee farm. The city center can be reached easily by car or by a short walk of few minutes. Breakfast was great and ample! WiFi works very good in public areas as well in the rooms. Highly recommended!!!!

Heiner and Ana get customer service!!! From a welcome drink to made-to-order breakfasts, what sets this place apart is their customer-focused approach to hotel management. They book your tours, get you a coffee, provide helpful tips, etc. all with true friendliness and desire to serve. The property is about a 10-minute walk to the town center. Rooms are large, the wifi is great and the overall area quiet.

We ended up staying here at the last minute on a spur of the moment trip up to Monteverde. We live in CR, so it was just a weekend thing to do with the kids.
The owners and very nice and the place is clean and cute and safe. Cable tv, wifi, a great breakfast with fresh fruit and eggs made to order and really excellent coffee. It was close to town and quiet.
Only one minor complaint, the beds. A wee bit more firm than I would have liked, but fluffly pillows and soft bed linens made up for it. We'll definitely stay there again when we go back up to visit the attractions we missed on this trip.

You couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Rooms are clean, comfortable bed, hot water and quiet night's sleep. Breakfast is amazing, cooked to order and served with a smile. A short cab ride to town costs under $2 or you can walk with no problem. Tours will pick you up free of charge. Wifi in rooms or computer to use in the main lounge. Friendliest host in Costa Rica. Would return for sure!

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the private cabins and they were very roomy and quiet.
