The place was close to many local areas. Secure and affordable. Friendly people and overall super clean. I would recommend this place for families, is pretty small hotel but affordable. It provided breakfast every morning. Super quiet with options to dine in your room.

Just "around the corner" of San Jose Airport (about 15 min. drive by taxi). Very nice mini suite with good bedroom with good bed, excellent bathroom, mini living room, mini kitchen, good breakfast at the pool, very nice people. Fair price for good quality. I recommend this place for acclimatization after a long journey to Costa Rica, before starting to... More

The hotel was clean and as described. The rooms we booked were not available, so we got much better rooms with a salon and kitchen for the same price. Breakfast was very good and worth more than we paid for it through our online reservation. One negative point is that the air conditioners are very noisy and hard to sleep... More

I spent most of two weeks in and out of this beautiful little hotel in a tranquil corner of Santa Ana. Everyone was kind and welcoming: I was on my own (a UWC parent) and I felt very well looked after. The first room was huge, with a fridge and basic kitchen facilities- very useful for hungry teenagers. The second... More

This was my first time staying here, but definitely, not the last time. This place has everything I was looking for: Great people, great service and great food. The place to stay when visiting San Jose. If I could say something negative it's that the pool is super small...but who goes to Costa Rica to get on a pool anyways?

The Incredible precious hotel has a great accommodations, what make this little place a grandioso is the super staff. La Señora Patricia in charge of the Breakfast, is such a wonderful lady, that will spoil you with her incredible food. from the doorman, to the cleaning lady. They are the best. Pura Vida Mae.

We stayed one night in the hotel. The beds are comfortable and breakfast was good. The room has a little kitchenette with a mini fridge and coffee maker. Location is a little hard to find. Has a parking lot with a guard all night

Went there with my girlfriend during our trip to Costa Rica. We stayed 2 nights (upon arrival, prior to departure). Hotel was clean, well maintained, located close to Santa Ana's main road, the airport and the capital. Delicious breakfast served outside near the pool. Staff was helpful in giving us direction, and calling a cab when required. Since street adresses... More

Our stay at the hotel was ok. We left the hotel on a Sunday evening at 7pm, to get a bite to eat, at a restaurant in Santa Ana. Approximately 2 blocks from the hotel we were mugged and they robbed one of the girls with study abroad program. This was very scary, the two study abroad girls did not... More
