“Clean, well priced, friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

We ended up staying at a lot of hotels on our cross-country trip through Costa Rica. This was easily one of the best hotels that we stayed at during our trip. The room we stayed in was clean and spacious. The staff was great and very helpful. They gave us advice on what to see an do and directed us on good places to eat. They were also very accommodating with our special needs as we were traveling with an 18 month old toddler. The breakfast included was good and they served you quickly so that you can get out the door and on your way.

We stayed for 3 nights in the Monteverde Rustic Lodge and we sure enjoyed our stay with them!
The owners must be the most kind people we have encountered during our stay in Costa Rica. They really help you with all your questions and are so very kind.
The laundry service was a bargain, the rooms very clean and we enjoyed the decent breakfast in the morning.
The lodge is also well situated just outside the town. It is only a walk of about 10 minutes.

Stay here, you will not be disappointed!

Very confortable hotel with excellent service, an excellent breakfast and good information. Rooms very adecuate, very clean and good value for money. Morning breakfast seemed unlimited and staff very helpful. The hotel is perhaps 10 mins. walk from the center of Santa Elena. Richard, Mexico.

We stayed in the Rustic Lodge 21/22 December. We liked it very much. We had a lovely room, very clean and comfortable bed, good breakfast. We got also all the help we needed to book excursions and got good advise what to do and see. Friendly owners and good athmosfere. Walking distance to the town with several restaurants. We would have liked to stay longer.

My friend and I stayed here for two nights and would definitely stay here again when I come back to Costa Rica. Jose was very friendly and helpful throughout our short stay. Our room was clean, big and comfy cozy, most importantly the bathroom was very clean! The free breakfast was yummy and healthy and served with a smile! Highly recommend this place.

We were on a two week vacation experience with our two teenagers ages 18 and 15.
This place was amazing. It was a comfortable clean place to lay your head at night. The owners greet you daily in the morning dining room and prepare breakfast for you. A great way to start the day. Breakfast is included. They cater to all dietary needs. The owners give you great places to go and suggest nearby locations to tour and dine. In the area you must do sky tram zip lining and the hanging bridges, rosewood studio is a must, coffee tour, a night tour and go for a walk in town. A dining must is Don Luis and the lady's house for dinner. Our experience was just amazing. When we had an issue with transportation, the owners were right there to fix it for us. In our opinion, an amazing place to be and stay.

Room Tip: We had two rooms that shared the same porch. An awesome bonus! The grounds were beautiful but simpl...
