We so enjoyed the Rustic Lodge, room was large and clean, no T.V. But didn't miss it. Loved the furniture in the breakfast are, so unique to Costa Rica. A sloth in a tree in the back yard was an added bonus. Breakfast was delicious and staff was awesome. A short walk to downtown. Would have no issue staying again... More

A stay at the Rustic Lodge in Monteverde is the perfect way to fall in love with Costa Rica. It is a wonderful taste of all the reasons we cherished our visit to that beautiful country. The accommodations were warm and inviting. The hospitality was genuine. Thank you Jose.

We stayed (my self, my husband, and our children of 5 and 8 years) for 3 nights in Rustic Lodge and had a very pleasant experience. The lodge is run by a very nice hardworking family thriving to do their best. The lodge is nice and simple. It is close to the different excursions which is nice because you get... More

This place is soooooo good! Jose is the best, and so are the rest of the staff. When we arrived, he treated us to a most enjoyable cup of coffee and chatted with us for awhile about life in Costa Rica and what to do while we were visiting. We are two introverts who don't normally get to meet a... More

Rooms are clean and spacious. Staff is courteous and went out of their way to be helpful and to make our stay pleasant. Breakfast was made fresh and delicious and they even kept our luggage after we checkedout as our departure was a few hours later in the day.

Jose and the rest of the staff will make you feel very welcome, and are very helpful to help decide which tours and activities will be of most interest for you. Breakfast is very good, the coffee is excellent, the lodgings are basic, but very clean and spacious. I would recommend Rustic Lodge to other travelers.

We stayed two nights. The lodge is simple, clean and affordable. Jose and Denise made us feel very welcome and handled transportation reservations to and from Monteverde without a hitch. They also helped arrange activities while we were there, and were all around gracious hosts. Thank you very much for your help! Arva

We stayed here for a couple of nights as part of an STA tour, it was probably our most basic hotel but it was still a nice room. We didn't have a tv or fridge and there wasn't much lighting. When we arrived the safe draw wasn't working and we were told it didn't matter because you can trust anyone... More

This place wasn't the most luxurious or glamorous place but it was entirely comfortable and the staff/owner was very accommodating. The rooms were really big with multiple beds and would have been perfect for a larger group of friends. I was staying with my family and we would have appreciated more of a sitting area instead of the extra beds... More
