“Wonderful experience at the Alajuela Trapp Family Inn in Costa Rica”
Reviewed April 4, 2007

We just returned fronm a wonderful two week trip to Costa Rica.
We wanted to have different types of experiences so we had a
car some of the time, and also used public transportation, taxi service and one-day tours.

Fortunately, our first several days were at the Alajuela Trapp Family Inn (not to be confused with the inn of the same name in Monteverde, Costa Rica).

We were picked up at the airport (very early in the morning) by
Karen Trapp, who runs the Inn with her brother Andreas and
her husband Nubil Chavez. We were tired after a red-eye flight,and really appreciated Karen's warm welcome. As soon as we were setled in Karen prepared a made to order breakfast ."What do you enjoy.? . I will make it for you". And so it went. Karen ,or one of her very friendly and effieient staff helped us with whatever we requested . They gave us information about buses,tours, cabs, local activities, and really everything else we
needed But it went beyond that. Once we decided on an
activity, they made all the necessary calls and arangements.

Additionally the rooms were large and comfortable with original pieces from local artists.

The dining room was open and airy with a view of native tropical plants and colorful birds .Very tasty food in generous portions was beutifully presented.

We also enjoyed the pool and an environment that
was conducive to meeting other travelers.

We paid $94 for a room and breakfast. Dinners ( also delicious) were available as well.

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. . more than any other
place we stayed in Costa Rica.
