I recently stayed at the Monteverde Rustic Lodge with my son while on vacation. We loved the location--just up the hill from Santa Elena village and situated among Costa Rican homes (with just one other small hotel next door), and a delicious Costa Rican restaurant just a 5-minute walk away.

We recently stayed here passing through Arenal to Samara. Jose was WONDERFUL and was by far the best host we had all trip. He really made the stay special there. The hotel was an EXCELLENT value - I wasnt expecting too much - but was pleasantly surprised. The

Jose makes you fell at home the moment you arrive. He will go out of his way to make you feel comfortable. The rooms itself is very basic, very clean, and rustic- hence the rustic lodge. The location of this place is great, it's about a 10 stroll to town of Santa Elena.

Excellent value, excellent staff (nothing is too much trouble for Jose, ask him for the tea made out of the flowers in the garden) and a loveley, huge and incredibly clean and pretty room. We even saw a sloth when we were there. Can also recommend the massage!
Abi B, London, UK
The lodge is a lovely place to stay. The rooms are large and comfortable, the breakfasts are fantastic (fabulous fresh fruit and a full breakfast every morning), the best coffee we had in the whole country, and to top it off, a warm and welcoming staff.
