This hotel was recommended to us by our friends in Seattle and we found exactly what we were looking for, something basic and rustic close to the cloud forest reserve with friendly staff. Kevin the owner was very helpful and resourceful, arranged anything we would ask for, shared beer with us, we liked to chat with him, we loved all the animals around us - goat, Chester the dog, chickens, parrot, we liked the breakfasts and our room had shower and was clean, we felt like staying in mountain's cabin, but if somebody likes room service, big TV and high speed internet in their room they better stay somewhere else. Even the dust from the road didn't bother us, after all the road is not paved, so it's dusty everywhere. On our next trip to CR, we wanna come back to Monteverde and we stay in this Lodge again!!!
