Monteverde is absolutely PACKED at Christmastime and Jose and Denise were able to accommodate my family! They were hospitable and knowledgeable, and the rooms and hotel were impeccable. Would definitely stay here again!

Our family visited the Monteverde lodge the second time since 2009. We were happy again with the room, the team, the breakfast, the service! José is a very nice "amigo", who showed a lot of conjuring tricks enjoying our son.

I cannot say enough good things about Rustic Lodge. Jose, the proprietor, is kind, friendly, helpful, and funny. Upon arrival, he was expecting us and helped us with our bags. At check-in, he changed us into a more spacious room to accommodate our party of 3 single ladies so that we didn't have to share a bed. The rooms are... More

My family visited beautiful Monteverde for two nights at the beginning of January. Monteverde Rustic Lodge is a lovely place to stay. The lodge is within easy walking distance of most of the downtown area. Rooms are super clean and the staff provide a solid breakfast to start your day. Jose is an excellent host. He and his staff did... More

The atmosphere here is amazing, the wood decorations are spectacular as are there gardens. This family owned property is truly spectacular and I would especially like to thank Jose as he was beyond hospitable, generous, and unbelievably helpful. There was one night in particular that I won't forget, he personally drives us to his property so that we can see... More

The staff here, a family, is incredibly helpful with setting up Monteverde excursions. Great breakfast, too: we had eggs one day and pancakes the other day. Excellent location/proximity to all Monteverde events. No car needed; we walked easily to the city center for dinner and coffee. Reasonably priced, clean, and comfortable.

We ended up here as a result of a previously booked B&B in San Ramon being cancelled and are very happy that we did! Monteverde is a lovely little town that makes a great base for activities. The room was comfortable and well equipped. Jose was very helpful and the breakfast was just right. Ziplining is a must do! We... More

We had a great experience in Monteverde and at the Rustic Lodge. This family-run operation is a perfect base to explore Monteverde. The hotel is centrally located, Jose and his staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, and the rooms are large with comfortable beds and strong showers. Good coffee and a tasty breakfast were a perfect, efficient way to get... More

We enjoyed this place a lot ! Hotel was very convenient , people are nice, and rooms are the right size. The only thing I would improve is the breakfast, it can start a little earlier for people who want to had to the park earlier, and can have more variety, but overall this is a great place to stay.
