A friend and I initially planned to stay two nights, but once we arrived, we were so impressed with the Lodge, as well as all the amazing things to do in the Santa Elena area, that we extended our stay by several days. First and foremost, Jose is an amazing host. He is a warm and friendly person, who really... More

We spent three nights at the Monteverde Rustic Lodge and it was a delightful experience. Jose Padillia is a great host. He greeted us with refreshments upon our arrival, he recommended places to see and great restaurants and he even made reservations for us. The Lodge is cozy, clean and well appointed. It is in walking distance of the town.... More

I stayed at the Rustic Lodge with a friend of mine for one night and it was a fantastic experience! Our travels were delayed, so we arrived in the middle of the night to a nice shower and a comfortable bed. The next morning, Jose knew he hadn't met us before and introduced himself immediately after our delicious breakfast. Jose... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Monteverde Rustic Lodge and we were so happy we decided to stay here! The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable, the breakfast was delicious (eggs made to order, fresh fruit, fresh juice and coffee, pancakes), and the owners/staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Their hospitality really made this a wonderful stay.... More

This is now my second year staying at the Monteverde Rustic Lodge. And although there are other places to visit, I find myself coming back again each year. The management is phenomenal and go out of their way to ensure each guest is treated as royalty. They are extremely helpful with suggestions for dining, places to explore and for my... More

This is a beautiful, family-run lodge with extremely clean and tastefully fitted rooms. The location is ideal. It is walking distance to Santa Elena town center, yet tucked into a quiet residential neighborhood, and also centrally located for easy driving to the area's natural attractions. The breakfast was wonderful each day, made with products from the family's farm. Our host... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights/2 days at Monteverde Rustic Lodge. It was by far the best hotel of our entire trip (we stayed in San Jose, La Fortuna, Santa Elena and Quepos). Jose and the rest of the staff are amazing. Within minutes of arriving, he met us at our vehicle, made reservations for activities for our two... More

Cute location just outside of town-a 2-3$ cab ride or 8-10minute walk. José was extremely friendly, hospitable and helpful. He didn’t hesitate to make us feel at home at the lodge and to help us sort out our plans for the Monteverde region. The room was very clean and comfortable-maybe a bit cold at night and the shower pressure low.... More

Great place to stay! The location was great and the staff was so friendly! They helped us decide what we wanted to do during our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was great as well.

We had left another hotel because we were not happy there--even though we didn't get a refund there it was well worth the move to rustic lodge. From the moment we walked in the door we felt very welcomed with coffee and tea. The staff made a great impression on us and the room was worth the price we paid.... More
