This hotel was beautiful! The room was large, rustic and beautiful, though not particularly comfortable. We loved our stay this week. Breakfast was delicious, and staff was very friendly. Loved the view from our room, and especially from the restaurant, and we loved watching all of the birds, especially the hummingbirds!

We were blown away by the friendliness of the staff here. They went out of their way to help us and to make us feel like family. While we had eaten Gallo Pinto numerous times at different restaurants, the Gallo Pinto made for us at Cloud Forest Lodge was by far the best!! And we especially loved their hot sauce. The trails around the lodge were fun to hike around. The rustic feel around this place reminded us a little of Kauai.

We love receiving comments from our guests, they help us to try to improve, but we like them much more when people tell us that they had a good time, that they felt well cared for, because that is our goal every day. For us, each client is one and deserves all our dedication and dedication. Thank you very much for your words, we are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay a lot and that you liked the gallo pinto. We hope you can visit Costa Rica again, it would be a great pleasure to receive you again.

The place is right by the jungle. The staff was friendly, the rooms were reasonable. A few things to be aware of: 1) While there is jungle everywhere, there are three main preserves with activities: Monteverde, Selvatura, and the "Children's Eternal Rainforest". This lodge is relatively close to all three, but not exactly on their doorstep. 2) There are a number of companies offering ziplines, rappelling, etc. - including this lodge, which has a partner company that does a pretty nice tour ("The Original") 2 minutes walk from the lodge. 3) There is no AC, but that was not a problem in the slightest for us, as the Monteverde area (at least in May 2021) was honestly slightly chilly. Definitely not hot, and we definitely felt no need for AC.

This simple lodge occupies one of the most beautiful parcels of land in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I loved the cool climate, clean air, and views of the sunset from the central lodge. Don’t expect great luxury—do expect well-groomed grounds, great value, and superb staff (the team helped arrange a packed itinerary for me at the last minute, for which I was deeply grateful). Side note: I cannot recommend the adjacent Original Canopy Experience enough—zooming through the trees and across the valley made me appreciate this site that much more!

If you want to experience a real cloud forest you need to stay at its edge, out of the village. Cloud Forest Lodge is all in one, serene accommodations with amenities of the upmarket hotels, with its own zipline and free trails, has a classy restaurant with the ocean view and in the mornings you may encounter armadillos wandering around the property. A perfect choice!

First we want to thank anyone who visited Costa Rica and especially who stayed at our hotel. We are very happy to receive the comments of our guests, with them we give an account of what experience they have and how good it is to know that they had a good time and that they could enjoy the essence of a cloud forest, how people can have a great time well without altering the environment. Thank you very much and we hope that one day you can visit us again.
