My husband and I stayed at this lodge for 2 nights in Feb. The room was fine, a bit outdated. The bathroom has commercial style soap dispensers next to sink and in shower. Was a bit course for me. The breakfast was adequate but nothing to look forward to. Eggs, store bought bread, rice and beans, plantains, fruit. We had... More

We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are large and clean. Bathrooms are large too. Nice glass shower. There were great views! It was a little chilly, but there were plenty of warm blankets on the beds. We booked shuttles from the hotel to different activities in the area.

This is a quiet, lodge style hotel with large rooms and large glassed in terraces. It is needing some TLC in upkeep and maintenance, starting to look worn. The staff was very nice and helpful. Dinner and lunch were good but the breakfast was very poor. They only offered watery scambled eggs, rice & beans, plantainand warm dry bread. It's... More

The hotel is 3 miles off on a unpaved road from downtown Monteverde, but only a mile to Monteverde Reserve, staff is friendly, you can book the tours with the front desk and the shuttle will come pick you up. But after dawn, you don't want to go out, because the driving condition is bad, and there are not much... More

I don't understand why this hotel is so underrated! We came to Monterverde without a reservation and after checking out a few other options around this was clearly the best choice! Although there is no pool the breakfast provided was great and the views were fantastic! The hotel had this "wood-cabin" feel to it but VERY modern. I would get... More

Nice lodge in the mountains of Monteverde. Staff made us feel at home right away. Large bedroom with a comfy kingsize bed. Wide windows with the view on the mountains.very quiet at night. Free wifi. A bit outside the city but a local bus stop at the door and goes to the small town of St.Elena or a taxi ($10).... More

We stayed at the Trapp Lodge as part of our honeymoon and honestly, wished we would have spent time looking into other options between Monteverde and Santa Elena. The hotel is the furthest from town, and customer service is lacking. No amenities - no pool or jacuzzi so there is very little to do at night. They don't provide a... More

The bad: we got a room on the ground floor and though it seemed wonderful at first, we slowly realized that people wandering outside your room with flashlights at night limited privacy. There's no hot tub or swimming pool so when the sun sets there's not much to do around the grounds. It's seems as though everything was built with... More

We stayed in the new building up a long, winding and steep ramp. We got used to it, but it was a workout especially since the altitude is almost 5,000 ft. (That I observed was an issue itself for a visiting Australian lady. She had to move down to the main building.) These are newer rooms and quite nice at... More

The hotel is very nice and rooms are clean. Hot water in the big showers is great after a day of hiking. Staff was helpful. Excellent views of the mountains through the large windows. The "cabin" decor made for a cozy room. Excellent location that is very near the entrance to the cloud reserve. Great Breakfast is included and the... More
