We stayed here for three nights. The service was perfect, a balance between offering care and privacy. The grounds are fantastic offering therapeutic views of the forest. The first floor forest view rooms are the best. The hotel's ideally situated, just a short walk from the city centre. Overall, a perfect experience for a honeymooning couple such as ourselves.

Dear Rochan M, At Monteverde Lodge one of our mantras is "Vacation Time is Precious". And while all vacation time is precious, it is especially true of special occasions like honeymoons because honeymoons are memories that will be treasured for life. We are delighted to know that the time you spent at Monteverde Lodge & Gardens was a "perfect experience"....

The hotel was beautiful and clean, but what made our stay so special was not the accommodations, it was Carlos, our utterly fantastic tour guide. Carlos is a true superstar - He is supremely knowledgable about all things Costa Rica. From the plant life, to the bird life, to mammals and insects, Carlos was a walking encyclopedia.

Dear Drew L, Thank you for sharing how much you enjoyed our Naturalist Guide, Carlos Vasquez.

Wow, this was a wonderful stay and we were sorry that we couldn't stay longer. Everything was as promised (and the pictures weren't lying).

Excellent place to disconnect from the stress of big cities. Well managed place, staff is super attentive and helpful. Location is amazingly convenient and the food at the restaurant is delicious. They have their own butterfly garden, and tour options at the front desk. Prices are pretty good for what you get. I recommend this place 100%.
