We had a very enjoyable stay at Monteverde Rustic Lodge as part of a 2 week visit to Costa Rica. The owners were really good at helping us to organise visits to the parks and excursions. On arrival they gave us a map and talked through all our options with us in terms of trips and places to eat.

Booked this hotel directly off of their website based on previous reviews on Trip Advisor. Truly the most welcoming owners I've ever met. Arrived after a long day of travel. The owner provided a map of the area and offered any help with booking tours. Has many of the tours on speed dial and can book last minute tours upon...

As everyone has mentioned it is a 10-15 walk to the gorgeous town with plenty of restaurants and shops to visit. The staff at Monteverde Rustic Lodge were very warm and inviting. Breakfast was fresh and we felt like we were at home. I would recommend this venue. They also had 2-friendly cats that I adored. Susan

This small hotel provides great service . The rooms are clean and comfortable . The only issue is that early in the morning you can hear the staff getting ready and the noise may bother you if you are not a morning person .

Don't be deceived by the outward appearance, this is a very comfortable abode. The rooms are clean and spacious if not luxurious. The staff is friendly and the rooms vary enough to accommodate various groupings of couples and families. A few "sodas" (local restaurants), a bar, and convenience store within a block and town is and easy 15 minute walk....

The owners here are incredibly friendly and hospitable. We were greeted with a big smile and recommendations for local restaurants and activities. There is wonderful woodworking throughout the property and the rooms kind of feel like little cabins. A nice room and breakfast came to a total of $75. You cannot beat this price. The breakfast was delicious (fresh fruit...

The rustic lodge is in a quiet area. The lodge and its grounds are very pretty. The staff is friendly as well as helpful. They helped us get a taxi. We stayed two nights. We would love to go back. The breakfast was also very good.

A family run business (two brothers) and boy are they doing a great job looking after their clients. Our reservation was misplaced but they quickly gave us a nice room.
