“Fine Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

Great place to stay if you are vigorous. We, unfortunately, had to climb quite a bit of stairs and rocks. Really, not bad, but a slight challenge. Great people who handled our reservations to perfection. Would consider going again. Excellent restaurant; what more do you expect in the middle of the Rain Forest??

The hotel is high up in the mountains in monteverde. 10minutes from st elena by car. The hotel is really nice and the rooms are quite large with 2 double beds and a built-in porch.
Because the hotel is mostly made from wood, the floors are noisy. We heard guests above us all evening. The breakfast is not elaborate but everything is fresh. Too bad they have no facilities in the hotel in case of bad weather.

Big clean rooms suitable for 4 persons. Wifi everywhere, but no gym, pool or other facilities. Great to see that the hotel cares about the nature by recycling everything possible.

In monte verde the weather is bad the most of the time. Therefore some facitities in the hotel would be nice.

When it's dry Monte Verde offers a lot and then the hotel is sufficiënt.

We dind't have diner here. The breakfast was ok.

The Trapp Family Lodge was perfect for our one night stay in Monteverde. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel is a little far from the city center, but has it's own bar and restaurant which made getting dinner convenient.

I went to Costa Rica last weekend with my sister and had a GREAT experience at the Trapp Family Lodge. We stayed for 2 nights, and the rooms were spacious, the dark wood created a very Swiss/Austrian ski lodge type experience, and the wait staff (from the front desk agent to the bartender and waiter) were extremely nice and attentive. The only drawback was that the view was of trees and the very very tops of mountains - but that was hardly an issue. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great, first class experience in Monteverde.

We enjoyed our 1 night stay. The hotel is clean and the rooms are nice. Nice big glass windows, wood floors, and comfortable beds. Didn't notice any heat or A/C, but it isn't really needed because at that elevation it doesn't get hot like the rest of Costa Rica. We would have appreciated toiletries. There was just a soap dispenser near the sink and in the shower. Very close to the national park. Be prepared for a bumpy ride. There is a 17 km dirt/rock road up to the town, and then from the town another few kms to the hotel. We were glad we rented a 4x4, though lots of people seemed to get by fine with standard 2 wheel drive cars. Breakfast was nicer than most included breakfasts. It was sit down and our server brought us orange juice and coffee, then a plate with sliced banana and watermelon. Then some toast with orange marmalade. Only downside is that the items are just brought to you, no menu or choices. We were brought pancakes and had to send them back due to dietary restrictions. Overall a good stay. We'd visit again.

The location of this hotel is one of the closest hotels to the National Park, which offers so much peace and quiet. The grounds are well kept and the staff very friendly. I highly recommend to stay in the newest room which is more quiet and the rooms a lot nicer. Had such a great relaxing time in the hotel where we had stayed for 2 nights.

Room Tip: Stay in the newer addition and look out for bugs that may crawl into your room if you leave your doo...
