This lodge is great. Huge rooms, elevated with large glass windows so you had a great view across the forest. The food was lovely a chicken sandwich at lunchtime wonderful. Evening meals were great and freshly cooked and breakfast was good too. People very friendly and helpful. We had a private tour into the santa elena cloudforest and walking distance... More

We stayed in one of the Mountain View suites on top of the hill and really enjoyed watching the changing view of the clouds - every minute was different. Although a bit of a climb to get up to the room it was worth it. We had to wait an hour and a half for our room to be ready... More

The location was excellent, the view from the Mountain Suites was beautiful...The wood work in the room, gave it a warm feel, so nicely decorated and spotless! The food in the restaurant was delicious...can't say enough about the place. Also My experience with the Hummingbird Garden was so tranquil and awe inspiring...

Love the location, only 1 km from the Reserve. We walked there every day to watch the hummingbirds at the Hummingbird Garden at the entrance of the Reserve. The rooms are spacious, clean and beautiful. We loved the enclosed lanai. The 2 big wooden chairs on the lanai, however, are the most uncomfortable to sit in. The breakfast buffet there... More

Lovely room with fantastic views, great staff and good food. Disappointed that it did not have a pool or things to do at the property. It was also lacking on take out such as for coffee to go or if you wanted to pick something up from the restaurant to take it with you. But it is close to the... More

The hotel is probably one of the best in Monteverde. Very close to Claude Reserve. Big room, nice hardwood floors. The view from the room is breathtaking. I give it only 3 stars for the following reasons (it can be not a big deal, but you expect all these points to be taken into account in the hotel that is... More

This hotel was a great base for exploring Monteverde Costa Rica. The rooms are large and the staff is friendly. There isn't much to do on the property but you can take a cab to town. If I am in the area again I will definitely stay at this hotel.

The Trapp Family Lodge is a perfect place to explore Monteverde. While about 10 minutes from town up a very bumpy road, it is only a short walk to the entrance to the preserve on a beautiful hillside property that feels very removed from hustle and bustle of town. The food and service were fantastic, and the rooms very comfortable.... More

Trapp is very close to Monteverde Cloud Forest which is convenient for tours of the reserve. The road is less than desirable but worth the drive! The lodge is beautiful - hard wood floors, very clean and there was a nice sitting area in our room looking out to the forest which we took advantage of in our downtime. Expect... More

We stayed for two nights at this hotel in order to explore the Cloud Forest. It is the last hotel before the entrance to the Cloud Forest Park so it is in an excellent position for a tour of that. We got off to a good start as our room was already ready for us at 11.30 and this room... More
