“Amazing location steps from the cloud forest reserve...”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

This was my second stay at the hotel... The hotel staff are always helpful and professional. The location can't be beat if you want to hike in the rainforest...it's about a 10 minute walk from the lodge to the entrance. If you want to be near restaurants and you don't drive, then you may not like to stay here as it is out of the way but that's why my husband and I like it. There is a very good restaurant on site and the wait staff are all super helpful. The town of Santa Elena itself is further away and nice, but it's pretty noisy at night. We've stayed there before and prefer the Trapp. The prices are reasonable and our stay was very comfortable...but if you have a noisy neighbour you can hear through the walls which can be bad sometimes. We've usually had good neighbours. Would definitely stay there again on our next visit. Beautiful views of the forest. We preferred the lower suites...the higher suites are newer and have flag screen tv, but I like the view from the lower rooms. We've never stayed in the actual main building.

Good accomodations with very spacious rooms
Very nice service and, needed to be pointed out, an excellent restaurant. Don't look for any other dinner place, just stay in the hotel and have a great dinner.
The place is quite and well located
As said value for money

Very nice hotel .Close to the park. Really friendly staff and nice facilities. A little far from the town but pick up can be arranged for all activities. One word of caution. The correct web site for the hotel is http://www.trappfam.com/ but if you google the hotel, this web site appears first - http://www.trappfamilylodgecr.com/. It gives every appearance of being the hotel. By mistake, we booked through this site. It appears to be a travel agency but even though I asked multiple times, they never told me what company. In the end it all worked out but it was disconcerting.

My husband and I stayed at the TFL for a couple nights. The room was well kept, very clean and large enough for 4people. The windows allowed for nice views into the dense vegetation. The lodge is also a short walk from Monteverde Reserve, so you can easily walk to and from the reserve without needing a car. The problem with TFL however is that if you have any downtime, there is nothing to do. Nearby hotels have lakes or pools and you can walk to nearby shops, but at TFL you can read in your room and that's it. It'd be nice if they had some board games in the bar area for when you have a small amount of downtime between tours or after dinner. The ride to town was $8 each way (about 10 min), but again if TFL had something on premise to do, it'd be a winner. One day between our activities we went to Santa Elena to find the power in the town was out. If we had been staying elsewhere my husband and I would have returned to the hotel and lounged, but because there isn't a place like that at TFL we decided to stay in town and wait for time to pass until the next activity. That was a bit of a downer. Also, the guestroom bathrooms all have windows into the hallway. That made me a little uncomfortable. (Who wants other people to hear you going to the bathroom after all?) Overall it was a pleasant enough hotel and all the staff was very friendly, but given what else is in the area and what those hotels provide, I wouldn't go back to TFL.

We stayed a couple of nights at the Trapp Family Lodge outside of Monteverde, Costa Rica. Although initially put off by how far it was from "town", we soon found at the town didn't consist of much so no loss there. The lodge is at the very last stop on the row of hotels. Although we could take taxis into town to go to different restaurants, we just ate at the lodge for breakfasts and dinners.The food was good and plentiful while the wait staff were incredibly friendly while providing excellent service. Our room was in the newest building uphill from the lodge and it was a CLIMB up a switchbacking pathway to get to it. I wouldn't recommend it for someone with a heart condition or physical disability because it is a steep climb. But for those who are somewhat fit, it's worth the effort because the views from our room were gorgeous! The bed was comfortable and the room clean. They will provide a portable heater and/or extra blankets if requested because at that elevation, the March nights were cool. I would definitely go back to the Trapp Family Inn!

Room Tip: If you have a health condition, ask to stay in the main building or in a room closest to the lodge i...
