Welcoming Staff, Beautiful Gardens
After being so disappointed with our stay at Tortuga Lodge, Monteverde Lodge was a complete turn around. The desk clerks were friendly, happy and quick to make sure we were comfortable. It is a well-kept lodge that takes pride in everything they do. The rooms were clean and the hotel and its surroundings are beautiful and it offers the friendliest staff we meet during our 16 days of travel in Costa Rica.
The food was always very good and more than we could eat. The wait staff is the best I have ever seen, without being pretentious. If you dropped a napkin they were there to replace it immediately, always friendly, greeting us with a smile and able to speak both English and Spanish.
Unique Quality: The rooms (we had 2) were spacious and looked out into the forest. One day we were greeted by White-face Capuchin Monkeys just outside our windows. The gardens are amazing and I suggest taking your time to wander around them during your stay.
We were very pleased with the Monteverde Lodge (once we arrived). Getting to Monteverde is not so easy, but the hotel was wonderful. With only 27 rooms, the lodge has very personalized service. The grounds are beautiful where you can wander for hours. Enjoy a variety of plants, running streams and ponds. We also saw several hummingbirds, sloths, and even a small little group of parrots.
Unique Quality: The rooms are angled so that your bedroom window faces the tree branches. It gives you the feeling that you are sleeping in them, without having to leave the comfort of your room. We woke up each morning, with the most wonderful sounding little bird.
Immaculate grounds, comfortable rooms
The Monteverde Lodge is located on the edge of the town of Santa Elena. It is about a ten to fifteen minute drive from both the Monteverde Reserve and the Santa Elena Reserve.
The lodge serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and if you are with a group you will have a wide variety of vegetables, fruits and meats. There also is a full-service bar.
The grounds are great for birdwatching. Several years ago the grounds were barren and planted in some sort of non-native southwestern motif. However, management decided on a wise course of action and hired our guide Arturo Jarquin to re-design the grounds and plant native flora throughout. On our stay we saw mot-mots, toucanettes, parrots, numerous hummingbirds, coati and agouti.
