Best time!
We had the best time with this lovely family at Rancho de lelo. A real family atmosphere with the cutest kids and doggos running around! Our room was lovely and clean, the only thing we had trouble with was the shower! The food was AMAZING. some of the best food we’ve had. They made us so welcome and we loved staying with them.

Amazing place. Very beautiful, friendly, clean and wonderful food. Highly recommend for a solo, romantic, or family trip. The hosts are very helpful with arranging activities and transportation. They also provide very knowledgeable guided tours of cloud Forest and night hikes. We loved staying here!

Great little off the grid family owned and run property. Nice little secluded cabins and home cooked meals. 15 mins from monteverde center and a totally different experience. Highly recommended.

2/10 Poor

Terrible experience ever during all the trips but I was lucky that Expedia staff allowed me to cancel my hotel at late night. I will talk about my experience beside all the terrible facilities at the hotel. I did not meet any host family, there was just one young lady at the reception who did not dress really properly when we arrived. She did not check us in at the first but introduced us a bunch of activities around the hotel and ask us if we want to buy any thing. She brought us to a hut after we said no and quikly left. We notice immidiately that the door lock was brocken. We let her know and get to change a room, one that was still kind of brocken but functionable. Yet 5 mins later she led another customer to the same hut with the brocken door lock. The hotel was deep inside the mountain with a 30 min drive from the nearest town and the road was pretty bumpy, but we still decided to go out for dinner bc the hotel's restaurant was much more expensive. When we come back from dinner there was no light either on the way to the hotel or in the hotel. Even the reception was closed, so we have to use a flash light. When we arive our hut we noticed that they've fixed our door clock without letting us know, and we had trouble pulling the key out of the keyhole. It was a horrific experience bc you have no idea what might be around in the dark. I would not want to experience that again in the middle of nowhere. We finally decided to checkout that night and find another hotel.

Formidable
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour au Rancho de Lelo lors de notre passage à Monteverde. Accueil adorable de l’ensemble de la famille qui est aux petits soins pour ses hôtes. Le lodge est confortable et très au calme. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir et recommanderons cet hôtel à notre entourage. Encore merci !

Beautifully landscaped farm in the gorgeous San Luis valley area. Natalia was very sweet and accommodating even though we arrived quite late due to getting lost. (Definitely follow the detailed directions they give you, NOT Google Maps.) She gave us a map and detailed recommendations about what to do in the area and how to get places. We only stayed for one night, but slept well and enjoyed the delicious breakfast the next morning. The only drawback within the casita was ants, but these are quite common in Costa Rica and weren't a problem until we accidentally left some open packages of food out. We loved looking at the plants and fish on the farm, and look forward to visiting again in the future.

My daughter and I loved or stay here! The property is beautiful -it is covered with lush vegetation and flowers. There are beautiful private paths to each cabin. The cabins are separated from each other and each has its own walkout balcony to overlook the trees and plants. The ecolodge is owned and ran by a lovely family; they were so kind, welcoming, and attentive to our needs. The restaurant had delicious farm-to-table food! Make plans to eat dinner here, you will not regret it! This property is perfect for those who want to visit Monte Verde but don’t want to be in the busy town, it is worth the 20-30 minute drive!
