This is a bungalow-style hotel atop a cloud forest in Monteverde. There are no special amenities such as a spa here, just a clean and beautiful mountain lodge that serves as a good base to explore the cloud forests in Monteverde. The restaurant is average but the bar is a great place to hang out because of the natural beauty...

Cloud forest lodge is cozy and comfortable. It is up a bumpy, rocky road and if you want to go into Saint Elena, use a taxi. They are available and reliable and inexpensive. The town is good to while away and hour or two, but that is it. There is a nice reptile zoo in town that is good for...

The staff at the lodge were very friendly, the location was beautiful. We saw Coati and Agoutis from our lodge and so many hummingbirds near the restaurant. There were a few trails around the hotel, we followed the Avocado trail and saw lots of insects.

I think the title of my review sums its all: charming, rustic, clean and comfortable, amazing food and comfortable stay. More detail - rooms are spacious and very comfortable and clean. Very rustic, charming feel but with new construction ( I don't want you to think you are staying in dated establishment). Beautiful views throughout and fun trails to walk....

Compared to much of Costa Rica, this area can get pretty chilly as it’s in the clouds most of the time. This means it gets windy and damp so make sure you take something warm to wear whilst there. We had a nice room overlooking the forest were we got to see a family of coati walking by. The room...

I was surprised that this lodge was a nice as it was to be honest. I can see that it could get cold, but the weather was good when we visited and the simple big cabin rooms were nice. The grounds are also nice and the restaurant, although lacking any atmosphere as it's only used by guests and suffers from...

Our stay here was nice. Super clean hotel, nice view, great staff, excellent food at the restaurant. NOT a big fan of cabins - - I'm more of a modern type girl. There were spiders and ants in the room climbing on the walls - I'm NOT a bug person. The place is nice though. It gets cold there, so...

The lodge is at the end of a long dirt track road but the trip is well worth it. Our cabin was well equipped (no TV or air con) but there was wifi, which worked best around the reception area, and a large bathroom. The restaurant was good for dinner and breakfast and Gabriel made us feel very welcome and...

Each unit is its own cabin. The cabins were very clean and spacious. The property was beautiful with many hiking paths to enjoy. The restaurant had delicious, reasonably priced food for dinner and the breakfast (which is included) was wonderful. The only negative is that it is up a steep, dirt road. In order to get into town or to...

Thank you very much for your review. Unfortunately, "you cant't have the cake and eat it". Can not have the Cloud Forest in and the down town at the same time". I am glad you enjoyed our facilities at Cloud forest Lodge.
