Wonderful Retreat with Excellent Staff

Posted Mar 25, 2015
Pros: The friendly staff, the atmosphere, the cozy feel
Cons: Not much. I would say improve the rooms, but I think they add to the charm of the place
Location: So much to do! Guided night tours, Selvatura hanging bridges tour.
Cala Lodge was a wonderful experience starting with the check-in. The man who checked us in (I wish I remembered his name!) was so friendly. He took the time to explain the general area, including things to do, places to eat, and how to get around. He asked us about our plans and immediately booked us on a guided night tour for that night. We were originally thinking we needed to pre-book activities, but now I'm so glad we didn't. He took care of everything. The lodge/lobby area is very comfortable with places to eat, couches to lounge on, bookshelf full of books of things to know about Costa Rica and its wildlife. The deck around back is a wonderful spot to enjoy the view and wait for birds to come out. The room itself was just fine. A cozy room with a big shower. It was great for us because we weren't planning on spending much time in the room. Even if we were, it would have been fine. We just would have had to be on the bed.

We loved this hotel. The views are amazing and the staff is so friendly. Best breakfast we've had in Costa Rica. We would definitely stay there again!

Great locaion/room too small

Posted Feb 18, 2015
Pros: Beautiful grounds.
Cons: Include a few more amenities in he room such as a table and chair. Our bedroom was marketed as a 2 bed bedroom, it really is the size for 1 bed.
The hotel has a secluded, beautiful location which was marred for us by the size of the room. We had a great view but had no room to put our bags other than the floor by the window and door. We were there for 3 nights and being an older couple, found it inconvenient to have to kneel on the floor to get our stuff.

Vackert läge!

Posted Feb 16, 2015
Pros: Läget
Cons: Utrustningen i köket
Location: Nära till aktiviteter, hotellet ordnar med bokningar och upphämtning för de aktiviteter man önskar göra. Centrum på gångavstånd
Trevligt hotell med vacker trädgård. Mycket bra frukost och trevlig personal. Rummet var utrustat med en enkel kokplatta som inte var helt ok, den var långsam och man fick stötar av den vilket var obehagligt. Också lite märkligt att det bara fanns tallrikar och bestick för 2 personer när det fanns 6 bäddar.

Petit paradis

Posted Jan 7, 2015
Excellent lodge au coeur de la forêt de nuages. Grandes chambres avec fenêtres immenses permettant d observer les singes et les oiseaux même lorsqu on est au lit! Il faut savoir cependant qu il se trouve en dehors du village de Santa Helena, environ 20 minutes a pied. Restaurants à partir de 5 minutes à pied. Tous les tours et activités viennent cueillir les clients directement au lodge, donc ne pas hésiter a y séjourner même si on est un voyageur à pied comme nous. Parfait pour les amants de la nature.

Great Hotel

Posted Jan 4, 2015
Pros: We enjoyed the view, the cleanliness of the room, the comfort and all around a good experience.
Cons: Our room was loud because of the wind, but I think most other rooms were protected.
The hotel was great and was in a good location in Monteverde. The view was spectacular from our room and the staff was friendly.

Nice B&B close to national park

Posted Jan 2, 2015
Very friendly staff, we had a great room - it feels like waking up in the Forrest - hearing the birds and looking right into the Forrest when you open the window. Certainly enjoyed the help at reception to book dinner and plan our trip.
