Monteverde Lodge and Gardens

Northern Costa Rica

Rating: Mid-range    

Monteverde Lodge and Gardens overview

This lodge has a relaxed atmosphere, smiling staff, and gardens full of exotic flowers, birds and monkeys, with a network of trails for you to explore. It's just 15 minutes from the entrance to Monteverde Cloudforest, which offers walking trails and canopy tours.
Most of the guest rooms have views of the forest, with others overlooking the gardens. All provide comfort and privacy, have en-suite bathrooms, safe, coffee maker, ceiling fan and free Wi-Fi. Forest view rooms have easy chairs and a coffee table, and those on the first floor have balconies. The 3 garden rooms are slightly smaller and have doors leading directly to the gardens.
The restaurant specialises in meals based on traditional Costa Rican recipes, served indoors and out on the covered terrace. There's a bar with inviting armchairs and sofas, and a wide range of drinks, a good place to socialise with other guests. Outdoors there's a small swimming pool surrounded by lush foliage. 
The gardens are a delight - a mini cloudforest lovingly tended by the head gardener and his team. There are many ferns and flowers including orchids. Birds such as wrens, hummingbirds and toucanets, and mammals including capuchin monkeys and two-toed sloth are often seen. The lodge has terraces where you can sit and admire the views. The enclosed, glass-walled butterfly garden is a lovely place to relax and is often the setting for private meals.

Mrs Ginny Cheeseman (18/11/2017)

"Cold and wet but the lodge was perfect. They lit a log fire and had a constant supply of tea and yummy cakes in reception. The staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. The food was to die for and the drinks were pretty good too! I really enjoyed visiting the Serpentarium, just down the road, so many different species of snake and so well cared for. Loved their butterfly house."

Mr. Laurence Boyle (27/05/2017)
"Second floor room with views over the adjacent river valley from our small but adequate balcony where a highlight. The little trails in the garden were fun. Lovely garden views from the first floor restaurant were great in the morning watching Parrots and Hummingbirds, a Coati climbing a tree at breakfast bliss. "
Annie Mitchell
"This was a bit of a favorite - even though it was not as luxurious as Nayara it had a lovely feel to it. The grounds were pretty and spread out into nice walks. The pool was exceptionally lovely and you could relax in little areas that the hotel had set up in the garden with hammocks and reading sites etc. The rooms were comfortable and the housekeeping staff would leave iced water in the rooms at night with little chocolates etc. They would also make sure you had closed the windows or risk the monkeys coming in and making off with your things. The food was also very good - again one of our top places."
