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

We checked into the Trapp Family Lodge December 17, 2014 for 2 nights and had a fantastic stay! We were complimentary upgraded to a beautiful room that overlooked the mountains and had everything you would need for a relaxing stay. The food in the restaurant is delicious and the complimentary breakfast is basic but has everything you need! The staff... More

This was a nice place, friendly helpful staff, and well located. From here we walked up to the Monteverde Reserve, and down to the cheese factory and Children's Eternal Rainforest. The beds were very comfortable with lots of blankets in case the nights got cool. The floors in the rooms are a beautiful hardwood but just be careful if in... More

This was a very comfortable hotel, with quite spacious rooms. It wasn't a luxury resort, but met our needs. It was within walking distance to the Forest and easy to get a cab when you wanted to go into town. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The lodge was a perfect get away for my husband and I, allowing us to get away from the heat of the beach and enjoy peaceful, cool weather. The hotel was immaculate and the staff was excellent and attentive. So many nearby restaurants were available to choose from for lunch and dinner as the hotel provided a beautiful buffet. Large...

Our room was at the back for which we had to drag our luggage through the restaurant (no other way) while people ate dinner. Staff did not offer to help with our bags. Water in the shower was barely warm for 5 mins then cold. Our window was open when we got there for mosquitoes and insects to come in..... More

Trapp Family is a hotel for people who want peacefulness and comfort. The bedrooms are spacious, clean and have a nice view, the food is very good, and it is located just 1km from the entrance of Monte Verde Reserve. The staff is very nice and thoughtful, they helped a lotwhen we decided to choose and book some sidetrips.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at this lodge. It was walking distance to the nature reserve, but not walking distance to most food options in the little town of Santa Elana (just an $8-$10 taxi). I had read other reviews before going and they were right about it being a bit of a hill up to our room, but... More

This is a small but charming hotel very close to Monteverde national park so we were easily able to go on the local night hike and experience the real effects of the cloud forest. The staff at the hotel were so helpful in getting us a taxi into the town, welcoming us for our wedding anniversary in a personal way... More
