Overview

Entrance to Monteverde Lodge & Gardens

Costa Rica is rich in natural beauty and lush ecosystems, including their famous cloud forests. If exploring the cloud forest is on your vacation agenda, you'll love staying at Monteverde Lodge & Gardens. The lodge is located in Monteverde at the north end of the Puntarenas province up in the Cloud Forest.

Modern comfort and rustic natural beauty go hand-in-hand at Monteverde Lodge & Gardens. When you stay here, you'll have all the conveniences you need on vacation, including free wireless internet in your room. But don't expect your stay to be just like your experiences at U.S. hotels. For one thing, the lodge does not have TV in the rooms, air conditioning, or background noise playing throughout the building. This is intentional: the quiet atmosphere allows guests to truly unplug from the stresses of everyday life while soaking in the sounds of the cloud forest.

If you're worn out after a long day of hiking or horseback riding in the forest, you can enjoy a delicious Costa Rican meal right at the lodge afterwards. El Jardin Bar & Restaurant serves up traditional yet creative fare with all the flavors Costa Rica has to offer. The restaurant uses locally grown produce whenever possible to add to the authenticity of your experience. It's open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can also enjoy a tropical cocktail at the bar. El Jardin can accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies, so be sure to let your server know if there's anything you can't eat.

When you stay at Monteverde Lodge & Gardens, your vacation can be as hands-on or laid-back as you want. Spend your days exploring the surrounding nature preserves, or take a dip in the lodge's solar-heated swimming pool before relaxing in a hammock with a good book. The lodge's gardens are an attraction in themselves. You can watch butterflies and hummingbirds, stroll along the orchid trail, and enjoy the tranquility of the yoga and meditation lookout point. Ask for a yoga mat at the front desk if you'd like to do a few stretches.

The lodge's friendly naturalist guides can help you get the most out of your stay in Monteverde. Nature tours are fun and enriching for all ages, and you will see and learn the most when a knowledgeable local is showing you around. If you're lucky, you might see a brightly-plumed quetzal!

"My family and I LOVED this hotel. Not even sure where to start to describe how amazing Monteverde Lodge & Gardens is. The location to start is in the middle of the cloud forest and next to a river that you can hike to. The property is also surrounded by gardens including a butterfly garden and a pond with frogs in it. There is also a beautiful pool in the middle of the gardens. The also rooms have a view of the cloud forest.

What I think sets this hotel apart from all in the area is the lobby. The staff truly love working there you can just sense this as you walk in the hotel. The lobby is also very cozy, there is a fireplace with a nice area to read a book or you can go sit in the bar area and get an ice cold locally brewed beer or have any meal there.

We just loved this hotel and would recommend it to anyone visiting Monteverde."
