The lodge is very nicely appointed inside but is completely lacking in any outside facilities. We stayed there for two nights recently and on arriving at lunchtime we had a sandwich in the restaurant and then, it being a very sunny afternoon, wanted to sit in the sunshine. We knew it had no pool but thought there would be somewhere... More

We stayed two nights at the end of March 2014. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the receptionist gave good advice on additional excursions to make the most of our free time, and booked them for us (we already had a half day cloud forest tour pre-booked). She even offered us a supplementary room heater if we felt cold.... More

Spent 2 nights here, stayed in the main lodge. Spacious room, no in room coffee maker. Breakfast is excellent, dinner is expensive. Extra blankets and a heater are available for the room. Reception is very helpful.

This Lodge is just about on par with what you will find in Monte Verde. This isn't the place for pool bars, massages, or night life. You come to Monteverde for adventure and the outdoors. This lodge does have free wifi, which is a plus considering the area, and the included breakfast is good. The rooms are very comfortable. They... More

We'd read the reviews so weren't quite sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Our room (in the main block) was spacious and cool even though the lighting was rather sparse but the orange lampshades made you look really tanned! The bar and restaurant were good and the grounds well kept. What really stood out was the service -... More

This is a very basic accommodation, more like a cabin then a hotel. There are no temp controls in rooms, no ac and no fan. The room smelled heavy of polyurethane it was a bit over powering. The grounds were nice.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. As you mentioned in you review the reason why there are not air conditioning in our hotel and in all hotels of the the areas is because we are locates 4500 feet above sea level and the weather most of the time tend to be chilly and cool. I am... More

The Trapp Family Lodge is located high in the cloud forest of Monteverde, close to entrance of the Reserve. The hotel is rustic, simple and quiet, and our (upgraded) room was comfortable and had a spectacular view. The staff was hospitable and helpful, and although the restaurant/bar is unpretentious, we found the food to be quite good-- particularly the simple,... More

When this hotel was booked for my family by Horizontes, I did my homework. I read the reviews about the steep walkway to rooms, cold/noisy bathrooms, inadequate breakfast, and distance from town. Well, I guess it depends on what you are looking for. We were there to experience the cloud forest, and this hotel is perfect for that. We travel... More

We just checked in about an hour ago so cannot comment on food as yet. It is so perfect I am surprised at all the negative comments. It seems people were looking for bars, action, some noise, all the reasons I would search this setting out, peaceful and quiet. I am sitting in my room looking at the forest with... More

This hotel is very far from town, you will need a car to eat anywhere other than their restaurant. My husband and I stayed for two nights. The rooms are clean and acceptable but don't have a safe for valuables. It doesn't have a pool or common areas to relax outdoors. Breakfast was poor, I got pancakes form the buffet... More

I am sorry that you were isolated and boring at our hotel. We are located 3 miles from town and as most of the hotels in the area you need transportation to have dinner outside the properties. Only two hotels in Monteverde have pools, next time you should review more and book the hotel that can suit all your needs.... More
