We had a wonderful and pleasant time at the Monteverde Rustic Lodge. We got a very warm welcomed, by Jose the owner, with hot coffee and herb tea. The rooms, the entrance and the dining room were furnished with local beautiful wooden furnishers. The rooms were charming, beautiful and clean with nice garden. Jose recommended us on a very good...

The drive to Monteverde/Santa Elena is long, windy and not paved which means it is really bumpy and requires a skilled and attentive driver, and strong vehicle. This road was the end of a four hour drive and we were worn out when we got to the Rustic Lodge. Jose was there to greet us and immediately sat us down,... More

We really loved this place and the excellent service provided by the brothers who run it! A great tip I'd like to give out for anyone traveling to Costa Rica is the name of the tour operator we used - we used a gentleman named Erik Hidalgo who arranged everything for us from Tortuguero to Arenal to Monteverde for much...

So we didn't actually stay here but I had to write a review to comment on the service. Our travel agent had tried to get us a room at Rustic Lodge but they were full so we had reservations for a different hotel, but we didn't know it because our itinerary and the one that was sent to our transportation...

We'be been to the rustic lodge for two nights and felt welcomed from the first second! The staff is really helpful and their friendliness is genuine! During our stay it was rainy and windy all the time so we couldn't take part in the activities! Normaly we wouldn't like to stay at the room in our holidays but at rustic... More

We recently stayed at the Rustic Lodge with our two girls (age 8 & 11) on a family vacation. When our luggage did not arrive as anticipated from our flight - Jose helped us coordinate a way to get it without having to drive back to San Jose. He was a life saver!!! I cannot say enough good things about... More

We recently stayed at the Rustic Lodge and had an excellent experience. Jose and his family make you feel like part of their family! They exemplify the warmth of the Tico people. You can not go wrong by staying here. Jose suggested places to eat, things to do and he also educated us about the area. It is obvious that... More

I stayed at the Rustic Lodge for three nights and it was wonderful. Great price, nice rooms, good breakfast and a wonderful owner! Jose made us feel incredibly welcome, he had good suggestions for excursions. All the beautiful woodwork was carved by Jose's brother and some of it is for sale! Safe, clean and accessible to all local sites. Would... More

Own a house near Tambor and love going to Rustic lodge to escape the heat. We also like the La Fortuna area but think Monte Verde offers more things to do. Jose and Ernesto are always most helpful. As the roads are not that good it's nice the Lodge arranges free shuttles to the attractions. Will continue to take our... More
