I consider that we were very fortunate to have chosen to begin our Costa Rican vacation by spending three nights with José and his staff at the Monteverde Rustic Lodge! They were wonderfully accommodating and helped us choose and plan our time there by providing expert tips on local attractions and then booking them for us. The attractions picked up...

Stayed here for 3 nights while in Monteverde. Staff was very helpful in getting us organised on tours/excursions and the lodge itself was peaceful. We had a large room and the location was good - walking distance into the main town and only a couple minutes from Sabor Tico (delicious local food!). Based on stories I've heard from others staying...

We enjoyed our stay at the Rustic Lodge. It is much nicer than appears from the pictures. It is a short walk from the downtown area (5 + mins downhill & a 10 + min steep walk uphill to return) but we saw that as a positive as you avoid the hustle of downtown. The grounds are very peaceful w/...

We were doing some roaming around and rolled into town after spending time in La Fortuna. Santa Elena had a great cozy town feel to it. We visited a motel that we were thankful we passed up, because we stumbled onto the Rustic Lodge for the night. We had coffee with Ernesto. We got a good rate in a really...

We stayed at the Rustic Lodge for one night in March. The buildings are beautiful and peaceful, and our son enjoyed the cats that wandered in and out. The owners made arrangements for a night tour and a visit to Selvatura for us and were very willing to answer all our questions about the area. Easy walk to restaurants. There...

(July 2013) The owners of the lodge treated us like royalty. The rooms were pristine and the staff even upgraded us to a bigger room for free in the middle of our trip. Our other hotel accommodations towards the end of our trip fell through, but the Rustic Lodge was able to help us out for another night no problem!...

Simple hotel with everything you need, plus Free Wifi and breakfast. The lodge is within walking distance of the town center. Two beds per room, once double and one single, it's all very family friendly. Friendly staff and all the rooms are kept nice and clean. There's also a shared area just outside the rooms with little coffee tables to...

This was my third stay at Monteverde Rustic Lodge. Staying here is like visiting friends. They make you feel welcomed and are sad to see you leave. While your there they go out of their way to make sure your visit to Monteverde is the best experience possible by helping with tours and suggestions on places to go. No matter...

A unique lodge experience hosted by the friendliest staff and owner you will find. They went out of their way to make my daughter and I extremely comfortable, arranging for common tours as well as a truly unique volunteer experience at a local biological reserve. The included breakfast was great and differed each day and, the close by authentic yummy...

The staff here is hands down the sweetest, most welcoming staff I have ever met. Extremely well maintained rooms- very clean and spacious. We stayed in the family room and I was expecting a very small cramped up room with a few twin beds but we had 3 queen beds and the biggest bathroom I've seen in Costa Rica! The...
