The hotel is situated near the monteverde reserve which is good if you want to visit the park but it's a little far from town if you plan to eat outside. You need to consider that the road is gravel so its quite a ride. The staff at the front desk was very welcoming and friendly. The room was available...

The Trapp Family hotel is smart and clean. The grounds are well looked after and the hotel has an enviable position overlooking the forest. The room we had, located up the hill, was huge and the beds really comfortable. It was a bit chilly in the room with the wind whipping through but there were blankets and I slept brilliantly....

What a great place and such a hidden gem of a hotel. We'd driven up from Arenal that morning (via the Las Pumas big cat rescue place at Canas) and weren't sure what to expect after the drive up into the hills on the bumpy dirt track. How pleased we were when we turned into the hotel though. Beautiful grounds...

We received a drink on arrival since we were on our honeymoon. The road to Monteverde is bumby however worth it. The staff of the hotel was charming and very friendly and gave us great recommendations. We booked our activities via the reception. We paid the activities on site of the event. They have great cocktails and we enjoyed the...

I chose this hotel for its close proximity to the Cloudforest (its not near anywhere else) and expected it would have a garden / outside relaxation area with seating - sadly just a concrete bench on a small patch of grass between the buildings. The hotel is very "woody" - nice but very draughty and unheated ( guests in the...

The hotel is clean. Staff are nice. The rooms are clean. The restaurant was good. The rooms on the lower level are a bit dark. You really need the lights on to see. My main complaint was the darkness of my room and the lack of a place to sit outside the room. For example, there are no garden with...

I booked the Trapp Family Lodge because of it's proximity to the Cloud Forest. However, I didn't know how far away it was from town. With constant rain and cold wind, we spent more time in town than in the forest. We loved the adventure of the road getting to the lodge. We did not have 4 wheel drive, but...

This looked like a really good place to stay to do the canopy tours and see the Cloud Forest. Good points - The staff at reception were very welcoming and helpful It appears a lot better than many of the other lodges advertised. Good views but better if you ask for a room on the first floor 10 minutes from...

We were here, as a family of five spread across two rooms, for three days after Christmas. The mixed reviews had lowered my expectations, but we all agreed that the hotel was wonderful. The rooms were spacious (we were in 3 and 4); the much-maligned breakfast was better than adequate (shout out for the gallo pinto); and we enjoyed an...
