Good Place to Exporte Monteverde! Service was excellent and the staff was very helpful with arranging the tours, especially canopying. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Have the best coffee in the Central Region and offer it at anytime for free. It takes 5 to 10 minutes walk from there to the "City". They give you a very good recommendation... More

This was the last place we stayed during our trip to Costa Rica. The jeep-boat-jeep from La Fortuna to Monteverde is ROUGH! Lots of zig-zagging at 20 mph up and down steep mountains to climb to Monteverde. The Rustic Lodge felt like a big hotel operation, but run by a family always on site. Walking distance to a couple awesome... More

The rooms are clean, the location is great, and most importantly, the service is fantastic. Every morning we were greeted with a smile, a nice breakfast, and plenty of coffee. The hosts were always eager to share suggestions about what to do around the cloud forest and their suggestions were very good. The price was also very reasonable and the... More

Monteverde Rustic Lodge is a great choice in Santa Elena. It is close enough to the town to be convenient but away from all the noise. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable. The gardens are beautiful. Breakfast is good. The staff is very helpful and really takes pride in their hotel. The only downside is the walls are quite... More

The rustic lodge is right on the edge of town towards all of the adventure activities and tours which makes it a great location. As I found out, the place is owned and started by two brothers who take great pride in their "dream" (as they called the lodge). The grounds are nice and they are very helpful in setting... More

Owner Jose and his brother and staff are the most gracious hosts. You feel right at home. Hotel rooms and grounds are in excellent condition. Dont let the dirt road at the hotel fool you., this is a very nice place to stay. Breakfast was great and the staff can make arrangements for any tour you are interested in.

This hotel is as charming as any I've seen. The staff is friendly and helpful. You can tell that it is owner run as there is a lot of loving attention paid to the maintenance of the property. We wend with our family of 6 for 2 nights. We had 2 rooms next to each other. One was a "family... More

We received a warm and informative welcome when we arrived, complete with coffee and tea. Denise had many recommendations for us and arranged the tours that we were interested in. Jose was a very kind and gracious host who welcomed us at breakfast and offered dining suggestions each day. De Olivo was a very good dinner, I commend Jose for... More

Rustic lounge is very well located close to the down town area of Santa Elena (within walking distance) and also to canopy trails and coffee tours. The staff was terrific about calling to reserve spots for us at places that we mentioned we'd like to go. We had a car, but they always checked to see if they could arrange... More
