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.

My husband & I really enjoyed our stay here. The location is very good, just a few minutes walk into Santa Elena, and a well known location to be picked up from. There's also a real family atmosphere, where they show a genuine interest in you and how your activities went. They also couldn't have been more helpful in any...

My fiance and I enjoyed our stay at the Monteverde Rustic Lodge mostly because of the host, Jose. Jose had great patience to ensure that our questions were answered and he set up tours and transportation to meet our exact needs. The breakfast was filling and sufficient and the service intimate and friendly. Our room over the office was large...

The staff and family here are wonderful, they helped us out in every way. We will absolutely come back for our next trip to Costa Rica. Would highly recommend to see the humming bird garden and do the canopy zip lining. It is a must to visit Monteverde. Thank you!

My wife and I stayed at Rustic Lodge for three nights of our vacation. The rooms were quaint and clean. The daily breakfast (included in cost) was always delicious, with plenty of fresh fruit. Best of all, Jose is a true host. He treated us like family, letting us use the kitchen for lunch and lounge in the lobby in...
