8/10 Very Good

Good location + Very Nice Owner
This is a Costa Rican family run small hotel in the middle of everything. You can deal to town, and drive/take a shuttle to the parks. The owner, Joseph, was extremely accommodating and offered us a refund when our flight was cancelled and had to arrive a day later. We had a short stay in Monteverde with our 5 year old, who co-slept with us in a queen size bed. The bed was comfy, the room was clean and spacious, and there was a small kitchenette (sink, fridge, coffee maker). It was all we needed. My son also adored the kitten and dog on the property. Joseph is also a guide and took us on a night walk, where he is very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. We saw a good range of animals. The only thing was that after the welcome breakfast on the first morning, there were no other breakfasts offered.

Property and breakfasts were absolute Pura Vida. Joseph was amazing at helping plan our tours and activities. A wealth of knowledge on the differences between activities, restaurants for food types. Better than 5 star for ambience and local knowledge

The reviews are right. The family that owns this property are truly wonderful. Eager to help, wonderful breakfasts brought to your room each morning. Even when I told them I didn’t need breakfast as I was leaving very early to birdwatching, a basket of goodies was waiting for me on my return. Great location closer to Curi Cancha and Monteverde Cloud forest. An easy walk to Santa Elena if you want but I enjoyed being away from the bustle and noise. Will book again on my return

The backyard setting was beautiful, the staff was so helpful and friendly. The room was large, it would have been helpful to have a bench or chair in the bathroom for safety reasons. We liked having a connecting room with our traveling friends next door. The only thing that was difficult was getting out of the driveway due to a very short visibility distance from the left. I know that can not be helped at this point. Thanks

Very friendly and helpful. Check in was very easy and informative of the surrounding area. After 7 weeks travelling around Costa Rica , the bed was the most comfortable.All the area around Santa Elena and Mounteverde have hills, some are steep. Short walk to a wonderful sunset viewing, we would definitely recommend staying here, gracias

Absolute gem of a B&B in Monteverde
We loved our stay at Scala Monteverde! Joseph was there to greet us on arrival even though we were a little delayed. He took the time to sit down with us and run us through worthwhile sights and activities in the area and gave us restaurant recommendations. The room was comfortable, sparkling clean, spacious and modern. There is a small fridge, a kitchen sink and a kettle so it is not possible to cook on-site but there are plenty of very nice places nearby (eg Morphos, Tramonti). What we enjoyed the most about our stay was the delicious breakfast (changing every day) delivered to our room at the most convenient time for us and the relatively central location (the hotel is a 3mins walk from a fantastic sunset spot!). We would highly recommend anyone stopping at Monteverde/Santa Elena to stay at Scala!
