Lovely hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Large room overlooking the cloud forest, so peaceful. Clean and spacious. Breakfast was served to you at your table, menu was the same for lunch and dinner, not a huge choice but the food was always very good and large portions. Very close to Monteverde National Park and Humming bird cafe. Receptionist... More

We visited in low season so there were not many guests. Room was a good size with great view of wooded hillsides and garden. The menu for lunch and dinner seemed rather old-fashioned (1970s pub style) though the steaks were very good. Due to lack of guests there were maybe only 4 people in dining room at any time, rather... More

Our stay at the hotel was great. The room was very nice with an amazing view out over the cloud forest. It is just a short walk to the Cloud Forest Reserve. The staff was extremely helpful and basically acted as our travel agents; we showed up with nothing planned and a lot of ideas, and they helped us make... More

Sadly, we were only able to stay here one night due to time constraints - but we were not disappointed. The views alone were breathtaking. It reminded me a bit of the south eastern US with green mountains that go on for days. This was also the best place for star gazing. Light pollution was nil so it was easy... More

The hotel feels like a European mountain hotel and is located close to the Monteverde cloud forest. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room had some wind leaking in, and was therefore a bit cold. If the hotel would fit new windows, the place could definitely improve. The restaurant served great food and had very friendly staff.

As you will find in this region of Costa Rica - many of the buildings have a Swiss Chalet feel to them. Wood floors and ceilings and wood trim throughout the building, all throughout the Monteverde area. Trapp Family Lodge is no exception. Although it has been beautifully updated! A lovely modern glass entry has been added to the reception... More

Restaurant decent and attentive pleasant staff - helpful with activity recommdations) Restaurant is good but breakfast was... More

Upon arrival the staff were very welcoming and helpful and we had help with our luggage as it was quite a steep journey to the mountain suite. When we entered our room we were surprised how nice it was! Can't believe it only has 3 stars as it felt more like 4. The bed is huge and comfortable, toilet and... More
