We enjoyed a wonderful stay here And I would highly recommend this place to anyone. The accommodation is made up of spacious cabins, with a seating area outside the front. The lodge is set in remote grounds away from the town. The grounds surrounding the lodge are beautiful with several trails that guests can explore under their own steam. Part...

This lodge is somewhat remotely set but that is a great advantage. The owners and staff are very tuned into nature, ecology and wildlife. From their dining room we saw many birds and even a cupochin monkey. The cabin we had was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good, but we thought the restaurant for other meals was a bit...

The accommodation is in Cabins a short walk from the main building and restaurant. The grounds are beautiful and the hotel organised a great night walk along some of their trails. Tarantulas, insects, and birds. They have some bird feeding tables just by the restaurant which made breakfast a colourful and entertaining show.

This campy lodge is secluded and literally at the end of a road outside of Santa Elena (not really a walk, more of a drive).....the rooms are spacious and comfy enough surrounded by beautiful grounds. The restaurant is fine with breakfast included (homemade granola and fresh fruit are top notch) and a bar. There is a zip line onsite but...

Wonderful spot for seeing hummingbirds close up- also agouti, coati, olingo and for the ORIGINAL zip wire experience right on the doorstep. They also do night tours. Lovely staff, great breakfast & dinners. Lots of trails through the woods.

My girlfriend and I visited the lodge over Valentine's Day. We had a blast! We did the night walk with a gentleman named Eric who is very knowledgeable and inviting. We went zip lining, and our guide Andre was fun, courteous and made everyone feel safe and secure. The hotel staff are absolutely amazing. Eric at the front desk Gabriel...

What a beautiful hidden gem! We only stayed for one night but we got in late on a rainy night and weren't feeling so well. The staff was very helpful and offered us hot tea to make us feel better. We were so thankful. The accommodations were great and we got a great nights rest. We woke up to an...

The property is a bit far from town but easy cab ride. It is at a beautiful location. Having a car is recommended. Good trails and friendly staff. The restaurant was excellent and breakfast was just right.

WE stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in September which is the quiet time and most of the cabins were empty. The first cabin we were allocated was overlooking the carpark but a quick word with reception and we were moved to a better cabin with great views and we saw a fantastic selection of wildlife. The restaurant was...

Thanks for your review! I am glad you enjoyed your overall experience at Cloud Forest Lodge. September is very slow and yes we apologise is we were e bit understaffed.
