I was surprised that this lodge was a nice as it was to be honest. I can see that it could get cold, but the weather was good when we visited and the simple big cabin rooms were nice. The grounds are also nice and the restaurant, although lacking any atmosphere as it's only used by guests and suffers from...

Our stay here was nice. Super clean hotel, nice view, great staff, excellent food at the restaurant. NOT a big fan of cabins - - I'm more of a modern type girl. There were spiders and ants in the room climbing on the walls - I'm NOT a bug person. The place is nice though. It gets cold there, so...

The lodge is at the end of a long dirt track road but the trip is well worth it. Our cabin was well equipped (no TV or air con) but there was wifi, which worked best around the reception area, and a large bathroom. The restaurant was good for dinner and breakfast and Gabriel made us feel very welcome and...

Each unit is its own cabin. The cabins were very clean and spacious. The property was beautiful with many hiking paths to enjoy. The restaurant had delicious, reasonably priced food for dinner and the breakfast (which is included) was wonderful. The only negative is that it is up a steep, dirt road. In order to get into town or to...

Thank you very much for your review. Unfortunately, "you cant't have the cake and eat it". Can not have the Cloud Forest in and the down town at the same time". I am glad you enjoyed our facilities at Cloud forest Lodge.

Of the 5 hotels we stayed in whilst touring wonderful Costa Rica, Cloud Forest Lodge was probably the least luxurious but in many ways this was part of the charm. The rooms were in basic chalet type buildings but the room was very comfortable & had a great shower. The small number of rooms & guests gave it a special...

Remotely located from Santa Elena town (which is the city center in Monteverde) in the middle of the forest - a great Lodge with friendly staff and delicious breakfast + superb dinner. Down sides: If you don't have a car you will need a taxi to get to town (restaurants, supermarket) Wi fi sucks... Still highly recommended

We took a quick side trip from the Pacific coast to this lodge and were so glad we took the time! It's a bit of a drive to get there with plenty of windy, gravel roads, but this place is not to be missed. We only had a couple of days, so the onsite tours (night hike to explore local...

This place is wonderful! Beauty everywhere you look. The staff is amazing and the food is delicious. They prepare most of their food from scratch...yum! The rooms are comfortable, but not posh. It's a wonderful lodge ("off the grid") experience. If you are looking for a place to party, choose other accommodations. If you want to experience the magic of...

After a bone jarring ride up to Monteverde, you arrive at this beautiful lodge. Animals and birds abound here on the property attracted by the fruit the staff puts out several times a day! Coatis, agoutis, armadillos, hummingbirds and a huge array of other birds and bats coexist here. Rooms are spacious, bungalow style - no TV and no need...
