We spent a few nights at the Trapp lodge and I kind of expected it to be a cheesy establishment. I was happily surprised and the accommodations were surprisingly nice. The bar and restaurant were nice (if a bit pricey for what was offered) and the staff at the front desk were extremely helpful. It is within walking distance (15-20...

We so enjoyed our stay at the Trapp Family Lodge. Our room was large and comfortable with a spectacular view. It was a bit of a walk as we were in a location farther back on the property, but we didn't mind. The flowers and landscaping were beautiful. The room was very clean and well stocked with coffee and other...

Small hotel with beautiful natural wood rooms and a great staff. The hotel is very convenient to the many hiking trails in the cloud forest and is a short $10 one-way taxi ride into Santa Elene where there are some interesting shops and restaurants. The people at the hotel and in the town are wonderful and really made our trip...

This review is based on a couple of nights stay, and using the hotel simply as a "bed for the night". We were not expecting to spend a lot of time in the hotel, so our expectations were for "acceptable" standards, rather than sheer luxury. We actually saw two different sides to the hotel, as the first room we were...

The hotel is small but clean with two locations of rooms. It is ideally located within walking distance of the reserve and town. It is on the side of the hill so everything is uphill or downhill. The rooms in the new section are large and have wonderful windows. The staff were helpful and always pleasant.

We reached the lodge after a very annoying drive from la Fortuna. However the staff made it for us. Very friendly and attentive to all questions and requests. Only negative thing is the free breakfast. I prefer to pay for a decent one than having such a sub-basic breakfast. Regular menu items for lunch and dinner were delicious and worth...

The hotel, though ugly from the outside, has impressive looking rooms. However, apart from two massive chairs on the veranda, there are no chairs or table in the room so, if it is raining or cold, you have nowhere to sit but on the bed. Between the pillow and the pillowcase is a nasty waterproof pillow cover which crackles. We...

Given the hotel's sustainability policy "to provide a welcoming, comfortable, safe and peaceful environment in harmony with nature", it was disappointing that when we reported a live scorpion in our bathroom the maintenance man simply squashed it with his boot. The room was cold, noisy and the bed linen felt damp. The bar had too few seats for the number...

The Trapp Family Lodge stand in glorious isolation less than a mile from the entrance to Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. This is the perfect hotel if you are planning to spend a lot of time in the cloud forest, since you can walk in from there. The hotel and all the rooms are very clean and attractive. Our room was...
