Learn a little about the 'creepy crawlers' of the area through a visit to the insect museums, butterfly gardens, frog pond and Serpentarium. Once in this coffee rich countryside, take advantage of touring one of the coffee plantations, where you'll learn about the fascinating coffee production process. In the evening, go on a guided night hike and discover the forest's nocturnal side.
The architecture of the Trapp Family Lodge is one of a Swiss Chalet, but surrounded by a paradise of verdant rain forest and just minutes from the cloud forest park entrance. Guests can enjoy refreshing drinks at the bar and lounge in the sitting area on the comfortable sofas, great for socializing with friends or reading. Just next to the bar is the fine restaurant which serves great international food.
At the Trapp Family lodge you'll find spacious and cozy guest rooms, each with a Venetian window. The Superior rooms and Mountain Suites have private bathrooms with hot water and a lovely picture window showcasing views of the cloud forest. In addition, the Mountain Suites come with a private balcony overlooking the gardens.
good good, windows could use some updating with the strong winds that blow through that area good good
Our room was spacious and comfortable. Dinners at the hotel restaurant were delicious and the breakfast buffet was plentiful. The location of the hotel was pretty far away from the rest of the attractions in Monteverde, but the Cloud Forest park was an easy walk! Because we were so far up in the clouds, we did miss the sun and the visibility that came at lower altitudes.
We have stayed here before, and requested this place for this trip. The meals are a little pricey, but the presentation is good. It's within walking distance of the Biological Reserve, and we had a good guided hike there with Rodrigo.
