We loved staying at the Senda Monteverde hotel. Our accommodations were roomy, clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff was very attentive and welcoming. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained, with lots of wildlife transiting the property. The restaurant was very good both for breakfast and dinner. We'd stay there again!


Very nice hotel, very helpful staff.




Senda was absolutely exceptional! Every aspect of the stay was outstanding.


This hotel was incredible!! The staff was wonderful, the food fantastic, the accommodations amazing. We wish we had booked more then 2 nights at this hotel. We look forward to returning to the Senda one day.


My favorite hotel of the three with great food and cool animals walking about. No pool but loved the trails


We really enjoyed being spoiled in our peaceful little cabana. The nature trails were a bonus, & the staff there was very accommodating! We did long for another restaurant option and chose to walk downtown in the rain.


Senda was phenomenal. Our room was such a delight and the grounds were beautiful, and nicely curated. Restaurant on site is delicious with wonderful service. Close to town, which was nice. The trails on premise as well as the preserve next door are beautiful and expansive. Sitting on the patio and watching the sun go down or listening to the rain was a great way to enjoy the scenery. Can't recommend Senda enough! Shout out to Adán for a really fun cocktail class!


The reception was great. Memo was wonderful. He explained about the facilities The Welcome drinks were nice. The hotel app was great giving us maps to various trails.


Loved it and restaurant was yummy


Best luxury hotel in Monteverde!


We really loved this hotel. Having a separate bedroom, a very nice outdoor sitting area. We loved being able to walk in the national park, right from the property. They were great about cooking vegan for us.


very clean and confortable rooms, Staff was so nice and went out of their way to make sure we had a good time.


Great food and location


The plantain cooking experience was great. Welcome cocktail was great after so many hours in the car. Hike through reserve was also very interesting. If we had one extra day, we would have liked to spend it here.


We loved that hotel! The food was fabulous: healthy and inspired at the same time.


Place was amazing and somewhere that I would definitely stay again.


This was our favorite place to stay on the trip. The cabin/room was so comfortable and we loved the climate in the cloud forest. The people at the Hotel were fantastic.


Michellin quality food, cosy hotel, very friendly staff


We loved this hotel and the staff


We totally loved this hotel and the grounds!


Excellent hotel and great staff. Really like what they are doing for the eco system. Food was great too!


Staff were fantastic, accommodating and very friendly


Great hotel. Great staff. Very good food in the restaurant.


Outstanding. Wish we had stayed 3 nights here


The Senda Hotel was one of our favorites on this trip. Having stayed in other hotels in Monteverde on previous trips, we liked the most. The location is not and convenient but quiet. The grounds are meticulously maintained and there is a nice trail system behind the hotel. Our room was gorgeous! It was simplistic in design but elegant. The staff at this lodge really goes above and beyond and is attentive in every way but at the same time, did not overwhelm us. The restaurant was nice and breakfast was delicious. While we regrettably did not eat lunch or dinner there, we di check out the menu and the prices were far more reasonable than we paid at offsite locations.


Can not say enough positive things about this hotel. The food, drinks, views and staff were all beyond amazing!! This was our favorite hotel - we really didn’t want to leave. It was perfection.


the food is very expensive and the resort is a bit more secluded than we realized when we booked, but it was a short walk into town! the staff are all incredibly welcoming.


The Senda Monteverde was a great hotel for us. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. When we arrived they greeted us with drinks and had our luggage delivered to our room. The grounds of the resort are beautiful and the trails around the nature preserve were quite nice. We really enjoyed just walking around the resort. They also have a very inexpensive shuttle to town ($3 USD) and they helped with making dinner reservations. The breakfast was excellent as was the happy hour snacks and drinks.


The hotel was beautiful! A nice cabin in the woods. The staff was amazing and even tried to help with our spanish. They gave lots of recommendations of things to do around the area. It was raining most of our stay here so we didn't get to see many animals like we hoped. The food wasn't that great and there wasn't too much of a selection like the other two hotels we stayed at.


The food was amazing at Senda!


A truly unique an eco-friendly luxury hotel. Right up my alley. A cabin in the woods feel. This was by far beyond what I could have imagined. Loved that the Aguti forest was right next door to do a night tour and the place was quiet which we loved with not many people. Tatiana at front desk was awesome!


Most beautiful and peaceful of our lodgings. Food was amazing


Staff members were outstandingly friendly and helpful. Room was delightful and bed was comfortable. Meals were the best we had during our trip.


The Senda was awesome, property & staff. Office, restaurant and bar staff were so friendly, we even got a visit from the Chef both nights at dinner. We were surprised with a bottle of bubbly and sweet treats to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, so nice and unexpected of them.


Loved the hotel and our room. The staff were so welcoming and helpful.




Amazing hotel. The food was phenomenal!! Staff amazing but we had workers right at our building all day early and late and close to the windows. I had to ask them to leave because it was bothering ournprivacy
And they had been there all day already. Loved the hotel. We saw a pack of coatis!


Beautiful place, excellent rooms, and the staff was outstanding


The staff here were awesome. They let us borrow their guidebooks for sale and even made a trip to town for us to get stamps and antacids.


Loved this hotel. The staff were super friendly. They were very helpful, recommending different sights that were close by.


This place was a gem! Staff went above and beyond and food was wonderful. Pure heaven!!
