In March my husband and I stayed at the Rustic Lodge in Santa Elena Monteverde for a week. It was wonderful. Jose made us feel welcome and pampered. It all began each morning with a breakfast of the most delicious fruit -- pineapples, bananas and watermelon, followed by eggs or pancakes. And the coffee was out of this world!. The... More

Rooms clean and spacious. Nice warm showers. No plug and they won't give you one either, so take your own if you need one. Nice sitting out area just outside the door. Situated in an area which is absolutely full of interesting wildlife and walks. Local village, a steep walk away, has a Bank with ATM, supermarket, plenty of restaurants,... More

Rustic doesn't describe the beauty of this place. On our arrival we were greeted warmly by Jose who was very kind and knowledgeable. The entire stay we were surrounded by very friendly and helpful staff. This place is absolutely beautiful, very clean and highly recommended by us. A perfect location to visit Monteverde Rain Forest, to take a tour of... More

We are a family of 4 (8 and 10 year old) and we stayed for 3 nights while exploring Santa Elena and Monteverde. Jose and his staff were so welcoming the moment we arrived. They showed us to our room and set us up with some homemade lemonade with fresh mint. The breakfasts were great with lots of fruit and... More

This place is truly beautiful and also ideally located in Monteverde. I was often the last picked up and first dropped off from excursions! Breakfast is served each morning and 2 local restaurants give easy access to great dining for lunch and dinner. The room was spacious, beautiful and immaculate. The hosts were wonderfully friendly and helpful, providing recommendations and... More

We spent 3 nights at Monteverde Rustic Lodge on our roundtrip in CR. Upon our arrival we're welcomed by Christina and Jose. It's so rare that you experience so warm welcome. During the whole stay we felt at home. Both Jose and Christina was so nice to us. They helped with arranging the different tours, among others a guided trip... More

I love this rustic place. Everything is wood made. We had an idea of what to do in the area, the receptionist Cristina was very helpful and assist us answering all our questions and doing the tour reservations. Another person you should ask for is José, he is just fantastic, always looking after his guest. The rate includes breakfast, they... More

Jose Badilla, his family and staff are the most hospitable that I have ever encountered. We immediately felt at home. The inn itself is well kept up, very clean and neat. Jose went out of this way to answer all questions, make arrangements for cabs and tours, and provide a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The daily breakfast was delicious and freshly... More

We had a wonderful stay at Monteverde rustic lodge. The room was very clean and the staff was so very friendly. The staff helped us with tour arrangements and directed us to the most spectacular hiking areas. We even had a large sloth in the tree outside the hotel. It was a great home away from home.

This was the cleanest and friendliest place we stayed in the country. The beds were comfy and the room had big windows with great views. We wish we could have stayed longer! Lots to do around Santa Elena.
