Reviewed 24 April 2016

Although clean and eco friendly, the decor and soft furnishing could do with updating. We had a superior room, which, compared to other places we stayed at in CR, was in name only. No WIFI in rooms we had but was supposed to be in other rooms. There seems to be no personality in the hotel. On the plus side...

Dear Usinc. Thank you for your comment, we have endured a slow but constant process of remodeling, renewing and updating. We have placed fountains, tile, plants, gardens, lights, chairs, decks, and more in order to get a cozy, warm feeling. Monteverde Country Lodge preserves the style and ambience of the mountain lodges of Costa Rica. We still need to carry...

I was traveling with a group and we ended up at this hotel because our reservations at their sister hotel got messed up and it honestly didn't even matter to us because this place has beautiful grounds and quiet rooms. It had a very private feeling to it and the staff was so welcoming to us even though they knew...

The hotel is clean with helpful friendly staff. The rooms are basic and the beds have a plastic mattress protection that makes you feel like your lying on a damp noisy bed. The breakfast is also basic and the table was crawling with tiny ants. If this is eco then I'm no warrior

Dear Mr / Mrs 1, thank you for your e mail. We have finally get rid of the plastic mattress covers, you are right, they were not a good choice. Full mattress protection but bad quality of sleep.

We stayed with a tour group, so this was not our choice. Positives include pleasant, rustic architecture and nice staff.
