These little cabinas were in a great location close to town but not in the hustle bustle of Santa Elena. Very clean and comfortable. The free breakfasts were awesome and the owners were very helpful when it came to suggesting things in the area. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for 4 nights while my boyfriend visited the Monteverde area. Like previous reviews have said, the owners, and all staff I interacted with, are so nice and welcoming! They are always offering to make you a cup of coffee or a glass of juice (if you're a sweaty mess who just walked from Cerro Plano :) ). Very...

Amazing owners!!!! Really, the most welcoming and nicest owners I ever met in hotels! The rooms are large and very clean. Very good location (close to Santa Elena) and very quiet at night. The Wifi connection was excellent without any problems.

We found this cute lodge while searching for a nice place to stay. We had no idea how perfect this place is! The owners are by far the nicest people we have met during our trip. We got there and it was very cold so the wife made us great coffee with a homemade cake! We stated there for two...

The owners could not be more welcoming - along with their staff we had a great stay here for 4 days. They helped book a load of fun adventures - look at other posts for are zip lining and fun coffe and chocolate tours. The rooms air light bright and warm - it gets colder up in the cloud forest....

We stayed for three nights, the rooms are large and the ones upstairs have lots of natural light which was important for us as we were working. Wifi connection was good and they also have a guest computer available. The breakfast was great, loads of food and good strong coffee. The staff were all super helpful but the most exceptional...

You never know what you're going to get, but, in this case, it is more, far more, than expected. We chose the Monteverde Villa Lodge from the reviews on Tripadvisor. But, if those reviews were inaccurate it was just to understate all the wonderful things about the place--especially the hospitality of the hosts. The room was comfortable, the location quiet....

If you want a small, family run hotel with excellent service, amazing breakfasts (included) and wonderfully clean rooms then this is it! We adored the family hosts and were always greeted with warm smiles, an offer of coffee or hot chocolate, wonderful advice on the best places to visit and a feeling that we just gained some new family. It...

If you stay in St. Elena, you have to book a cabina at Monteverde Villa Lodge. At our arrival the host Heiner welcomed us with coffee and gave us information about tours and the village itself (where we can eat, which tours he can recommend us, etc.) The room was really big and very clean. Every day we had a...

We spent 3 days here for our honeymoon. Heiner is really an amazing host. So generous, kind, friendly, and gracious. Love him. We ended up staying in one of the rooms above the main building. The room was small, but all that we needed. Heiner actually tried to give us one of the bigger rooms for a tiny upgrade, but...
