This will be my first stop next time I'm in Costa Rica! Alba, Luis, Lucho, Izabel and Keilyn made my vacation stay feel so perfect. I enjoyed talking with Alba and Luis, they are very special and made me and my mom feel like family. I wish everyone the best and cannot wait until I can visit you all again!!

A great place to stay. It was clean, cozy and friendly. The optional breakfast for one could easily feed several people and the coffee was great. For those that are worried at not being in the very center of town, it was easy to get an extremely cheap and quick (just one or two minutes) taxi to and from the...

This is a nice little hotel about 10 mins drive from Monte Verde Cloud forest. The best thing about this place are the hosts, like several other reviewers have already noted. Alba was very warm and welcoming. She made us feel special right from the get go by giving us a bigger 4 bed room (as opposed to the 2...

This is a wonderful little hotel on the edge of town. The best thing about it is the hosts. Alba is incredibly friendly, helpful, honest, and knowledgeable about local attractions. For instance, she told us to go to a new reserve instead of Monteverde and arranged an incredibly knowledgeable and wonderful guide for us. The reserve was great because it...

Our family of 4, including 2 teenagers, stayed 2 nights at the Historias Lodge for our stop in Monte Verde. Per many of the reviews, the best thing about the Historias was the helpful attention of the people who run the place - Alba was very welcoming, helped us confirm arrangements we had made for ziplining, helped arrange for transportation...

I stayed at the lodge earlier this month and wanted to share our experience. As a group of five friends traveling together for the first time we left extremely happy. Historias is perfect for small or large group (we had 5 individual rooms) and the staff is absolutely amazing. Luis and Alba are just perfect as hosts and were more...

I had the pleasure of staying at Historias Lodge with a friend last January, and absolutely loved it. All the other reviews say the same, but I will reiterate that Alba is a peach and Luis is so helpful, we couldn't have asked for better hosts. The hotel is a perfect Monteverde lodge, natural wooden paneling, cozy, large, and clean...

Alba and Luis are great hosts - Alba in particular was very kind during our stay organising us sandwiches for our transfer, orgainsing the transfer itself and Luis was also great for recommending the best operators including night hikes, zip lines and horse rides during our stay in Monteverde. It was the best place we stayed in Costa Rica, and...

Historias Lodge is a lovely, relaxing place to base yourself in Monteverde. Luis and Alba are amazing hosts and make you feel so at home that you won't want to leave. The rooms are large, clean and tastefully decorated. The breakfast is spot on and can be enjoyed whilst watching the hummingbirds on the bird feeders just outside the window....
