We spent three nights in this hotel. Close to the town of monte verde as well as st. Elena. Rooms are basic,clean, retro TV, wifi that was iffy. Food was great. Staff accommodating and helpful. Close to the Monte Verde National Park, which is a must- flora, fauna and very beautiful. The Humming Bird park and restaurant is worth it.

I really don't understand why this is not listed as a hotel rather than 'speciality lodging'. It's a good hotel and the mountain view rooms are very spacious with a lovely seating area (plenty big enough for 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children) Hotel has a good bar and restaurant and a great location for visiting the cloud...

This place is the last resort up the hill before you come to the cloud forest reserve, which means you can walk to the reserve in about 10 minutes. The lodge is clean and situated on a hillside with gorgeous views!! the cafe offers good meal selections and the service is both helpful an charming. People from all over the... More

A really nice hotel with a very friendly staff. We had big rooms with a wonderful view. The hotel is situated near to the Cloudforest so it is very easy to visit the National Park. If you want to go to the center of Monteverde you will have to go by taxi.

The hotel is the last one on the road to the cloud forest. You can walk there. It's 1/4 mile away. The rooms were clean and spacious. We travelled with our 19 year old son, and the room was more than large enough. There was also a separate glassed in porch connected to our room which was chilly but beautiful.... More

Stayed there 3 nights and would have loved it if not for the weather, cold, wet and windy. Not their fault. The room, staff and food were excellent and if we go back to Monteverde we will stay there again. The bartender needs to learn how to make a martini.

After a wet and cold cloud forest zipline experience, Trapp Family Lodge was warm and welcoming. We did need to leave for dinner as the restaurant served delicious food. We will return if we come again to Monteverde.

The free breakfast was a buffet which was terrific. You could choose what you wanted and the quantity. The room we had was in... More

We arrived at Trapp family lodge after hours of driving on impossible dirt roads, the ambience and staff made it almost bearable. The lady at the front desk gave us all the needed information on road conditions and even offered to check for us if the better road was open later in the day. She also made our reservations for...

After traveling around Costa Rica and staying in a few less than desired hotels, we found this a wonderful relaxing hotel to finish our trip. It's so close to the airport, but doesn't have that yucky airport hotel feel. It's right in the middle of what feels like the city, but it's so tucked away in it's own little jungle... More
