The Cloud Forest Lodge is very rustic. You have to take about a mile long ride up to the Lodge from Santa Elena and the road is very rough. It is ok to walk down to the town, I didn't want to hike back up, but you could, just know that it is tough. Fortunately, it is a cheap cab ride. The rooms are like mountain cabins and are large and spacious. The bathrooms are big too and have very hot water. The view from the porch of the cabins is awesome and the hiking trails are fun. We saw a coral snake as we hiked along behind the cabins. The roofs of the cabins are tin and it was very windy when we were there. It is a bit loud but we came to Monteverde for the adventure and the views and we got both. The cabins are not heated so travelers should be aware of that. Even in the summer Monteverde can be cooler than much of the country. The sunset veiws from the lobby/restaurant were fantastic. There are hummingbirds feeding just outside the windows and the birds let you get up close to them. All of the people who worked at the Lodge Roxana, Gustavo and Wayner (spelling?) were so helpful and nice. They made our stay by being so open and friendly. You should go to the Lodge knowing what to expect. These are rustic cabins set in the Cloud Forest. They do not have ammenities, the beds are ok and the pillows are bad. I thought it was well worth for a couple of nights.
