Pleasant stay at rustic lodge
The experience was really good! The staff were very friendly and accommodating (they all speak Spanish and English). The food offered at the restaurant is delicious, and we appreciated the free breakfast every morning. The hotel is within walking distance to Santa Elena but secluded enough to not hear the hustle and bustle of the town. The rooms were nice. Note that rooms do not come with a TV or air conditioning. Neither are needed in the room, because they offer gorgeous views of rainforest and it's entertaining to just watch the rain. Also, as in any area in a forest, expect a lot of bugs both outside and inside the room. There is also a small butterfly garden where you can reserve a table for a romantic dinner for 2 (at no extra cost!). One of the highlights of my stay was getting a Swedish massage the day after I went zip lining! It's amazing to walk to the spa and see so many butterflies, a giant road, and an agouti! Oh yes and also the hotel offers free wifi for all of its guests. The only downside is just how difficult it is to drive to the hotel (and Monteverde itself). I am definitely staying here again on my next visit to Costa Rica!

Road up to the lodge was extremely bumpy butcwirthbotvobcecwe got there. It closes at 10 pm so make sure you get there before then. The staff were so friendly, food was great and the grounds are amazing!

Overall great stay!
The lodge was great. They say "rustic luxry" which is a perfect description. The staff was WONDERFUL. Cindy at the front desk was great. The grounds are beautiful and the pool was awesome. Overall highly recommend. Looked like the best bet in Monteverde hands down. VERY cozy. Only downside is that the walls were pretty thin, I could hear my neighbors talking in normal voices. Overall would recommend.
