    Manakin wasn't the nicest place I stayed in CR, but you get what you pay for and Manakin offers value for money. I paid $34/night here. Chris, the manager, and his brother, who helps run the place, speak excellent English. They will help arrange tours if you wish. My room overlooked trees. Regular maid service, in-room TV, breakfast included, and free coffee and tea in the day. Thin walls, but quiet from about 8:00 pm onward if you wish to sleep well, This is a good spot. No AC, but AC was not necessary in July when I stayed.

    Location involves a relatively easy downhill walk into town; however, it is a difficult walk back from town to the lodge. If you are elderly, in poor health, or are carrying heavy bags, the trip requires a vehicle. Taxis are probably available though and many tours will pick you up and drop you off at the lodge. Some restaurants, mercados, and ATMs nearby without the long walk into town. Monteverde as a "town" doesn't exist; if you really desire easy access to bars and backpacker digs, stay in Santa Elena.

    Beautiful location and room. The deck overlooking the forest. You can walk to the different parks and restaurant. Extremely helpful front desk. Excellent environment. The breakfast included was a plus. A bargain off-season.

    We were given valuable advice from the staff that helped change our Costa Rican journey for the better. Breakfast was delicious, staff were friendly and I saw Toucan from the hallway outside our room!

    The windows did not have screens so we couldn't open them to cool the room down.

    Friendly welcome from the manager- he was so helpful. Great breakfast served with a big smile in the morning! The value for money was exceptional. Secure parking for our hire car. Views out to the jungle Simple,clean accommodation Quiet location , but St Elena only 5 mins by car or a 15 minute walk Bar Restaurant and supermarket within a 100m Do not hesitate to book Manekin Lodge.

    very nice people and very helpful. If you are looking for a roof over your head in a good location, this is fine. Everything was very clean but very old. Talk to the manager about booking a guided bird trip to Curi Cancha reserve (and we recommend getting Raphael for your guide). He recommended that we go there and it was great.

    Don't let them put you in room 305. It was not a safe location because of the configuration of the doors. I think the other rooms might have been better. We did not leave anything of value in our room because it would have been easy to get into that particular room.

    Edgar, our host, was welcoming and helpful, giving us unbiased information on the many activities, attractions and restaurants to choose from in Monteverde. The hotel is a 3 minute drive to Santa Elena, but there is a store and several restaurants within walking distance. There are only a few kilometers of paved roads around Santa Elena and Manakin is on this section. Our 2nd floor room was spacious and the back window looked onto the forest. The WiFi was excellent, even in our room. Breakfast was a choice of continental or a typical Costa Rican one of egg, rice with beans, tortilla and fresh fruit. Coffee, tea and water were available all day.

    Our only complaint is with the water pressure in the shower. I had to fill a cup several times and pour it over my head to wash my hair! Not a problem that couldn't be solved.

    water pressure was low, bed / bedding is 2 stars, but it was good for the money, we just slept there

    Brothers Chris and Edgar run the Hotel and are absolutely the best, helpful in any way and very informative. Lots of monkeys and birds. Breakfast was good. The place is not very big but you feel at home there, would recommend it and would defenitely return.

    Monteverde is vey windy not the fault of Manakin lodge

    The hotel serves a nice breakfast. They have a lot of maps and tour leaflets at the reception.

    We were promised to have a minibar, coffee maker, etc. None was here. The TV was, but "the previous guest took away the remote control". It was very cold in here. The staff was often not present, even though it should have. The room was dark and it certainly was not the one the picture of which is used on site.

    I love the privacy of our room and the view. Chris and the whole staff was very friendly and even went out of their way to accommodate us. It was real close to the center 10 min walk and we did canopy tour which was booked by the hotel. Very great time!

    it was a bit noisy in the room at night cause of the crazy wind but it sure didnt beat the great feeling of being in the middle of the jungle :)

    Fantastic staff, couldn't do more for us! We did lots of activities and the guy at reception booked them all for us as well as our onward travel. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Good showers. Traditional breakfast and coffee included all day for you to help yourself. Would return to this hotel. This hotel is out of the main town but there is a supermarket, bakery and a few restaurants near by. It's a 20minute walk to main town but up a Hill on way back!

    Not much to say here. Some juice At breakfast would have been nice.

    Location. It was very near the natural reserve of Curi-Cancha that was very enjoyable to visit. They can arrange any tour you need so the next day you'll be picked-up at the hotel by the van that will take you to the tour/attraction you chose.

    It was not because of the hotel or the staff but I guess that I arrived into Monteverde when it was cold and windy so in the nights there was this spooky sound of the wind filtering between the windows. Luckily for me I had a pair of earpads and the beds were very comfy so at the end it wasn't a big deal. The breakfast could improve.

    The staff was great, also the fresh breakfast, the laundry and the room, like into the jungle.

    The rooms are very basic, but clean. The beds were adequately comfortable. The included breakfast was excellent.

    Hotel was over booked did not get the room that I booked for my family. We did get in to the hotel but only because I had prepaid for the first night. We stayed two nights and the shower did not have enough pressure to be used in the morning. The first morning I was told that the pressure pump failed that morning but had just been fixed. However the problem persisted the next morning.
