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. I have no idea what TLC stands for. This is actually a rustic Lodge and our rooms are large and comfortable. If you could be more specific about TLC (In...

Loved the location. Staff was very helpful & since it was cool, damp & windy provided us with a space heater & extra blankets. Candle in the wall sconce was a fun touch in an otherwise o.k. structure. The sunset from the lounge as well as our porch bench was a million dollar view with hummingbirds & Orioles a bonus....

This is an absolute GEM of a lodge. Absolutely in the cloud forest, amazing wildlife viewing, great service, very good food (although we also ventured out to other places for lunches and dinner). The rooms were super comfy, clean, and quiet, and very spacious. If you're going to Monteverde area STAY HERE!

A unique location looking over the top of the tree canopy. The room was simple, but well built, with a huge bathroom and felt like a cabin. A bird was trying to get into our room and pecked on the window every morning at 6:00 a.m. The staff was very hospitable. The bartender/evening waiter was very friendly. We ate a...

I had a fabulous dinner in the restaurant. Great food, wonderful location and exceptional service. While waiting for the food I had a look in the butterfly garden. Good value for your money. Amazing! Next time I will book a room here.

The cloud forest lodge has a reputation of being the first recreational zipline operator in the world and i can assume they've been an attraction since they conceived that idea some time ago. So from that i can guess it's one of the older lodges to have set up shop in montaverde, and you can see that from the moment...

Thank you very much for your review. Al though this is a good review I am a little concerned because all of staff has to have the same attitude as Gabriel. I will work on this. And, the view from the restaurant is not Lake Arenal, its the Gulf of Nicoya. Over all, I am glad you enjoyed your stay...

The hotel is simple yet beautiful. The rooms have everything you need but to be fair, in a place like that, you wouldn't want to spend much time in your room! Everything was perfect except that some members of staff were not very friendly or accomodating... Having said that, Gabriel at the bar was fantastic and told us very interesting...

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour of Costa Rica. This lodge is up a steep track, so you need a 4x4 taxi to get into town. The cabins are wooden and comfortable enough, but no fridges. The best part is the restaurant/bar which has a picture window overlooking the valley below. They have bird feeders set...

Excellent place to stay. Comfortable rooms with wifi and safe. No heat but plenty of blankets when cool. Always had hot water for showers. Enjoyed watching the birds and monkeys at the feeding station from the the dinning room. The food was OK and plentiful. Good location. All rooms are the same.
