We stayed at the Rustic Lodge for two nights: they were the friendliest, family-run place, went out of their way to make us feel welcome. There are not a lot of extras, but comfortable, spacious rooms with high cielings and big glassy windows on both sides. It made the space feel light and airy. The garden is beautiful and well-kept,...

We recently spent 3 days in the Monteverde, Santa Elena area and had the fortunate experience of staying at the Rustic Lodge. The hotel is small and very personal, everyone knows your name immediately, they asked what we were interested in doing while in the area and made suggestions that fit our desires. We took a guided nature walk in...

I stayed here for 4 nights. Rooms are super clean, nothing fancy but very very comfortable. The surrounding gardens are pleasant and there are hummingbird feeders everywhere, so the walk to my room was always a pleasure. Jose is most helpful, and his advice never steered me wrong, be it for a semi-private tour, or a dinner recommendation where the...

We stayed here for a few nights on our Costa Rica trip. We wanted to experience Monte Verde, hanging bridges, zip lines and jungle. We had a great time! The hotel is very basic, nothing fancy, but very good value for money. The location is good - it's a 10 min walk to restaurants in Santa Elena but a 20...

Don't let the name fool you, the only thing "Rustic" here is the beautiful handmade wooden furniture in for the dining room and the little desks found in the room and porches. This hotel is small, well located for walking into Santa Elena and features a very kind and welcoming staff. My friend and I stayed 4 nights and we...

My wife and I stayed here 2 nights during our trip to Santa Elena and were so glad we did. Hotel was clean and quiet, and the staff are fantastic.

The best way we can describe Rustic Lodge is our home away from home. Jose and his staff went above and beyond to make us feel most welcome at their lodge. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Jose standing outside in the pouring rain with an umbrella, we knew we made the right choice. Every afternoon over...

We chose to stay here based on the glowing reviews I read prior to making reservations. I thought that a place that only received one not so great review out of hundreds must be a nice place to stay. The reviews were right on. Jose and his staff were friendly and very helpful and even helped us find an excellent...

We had a great time in Monteverde staying at the Rustic Lodge. The owners were the some of the most hospitable people I've met. It was the least expensive hotel we stayed in during our trip but the service was warm and it really made it worth going all the way to Monteverde from Arenal. When we arrived, we were...

Rustic Lodge is as advertised. It is neat and clean with beautiful wood furnishings throughout. We received lots of help choosing activities to make optimum use of our time in Monteverde. The breakfast was delicious and served early enough to make our appointment for a guided tour of Monteverde Preserve.
