Everything was great: my daughter commented on the spacious room, I marveled at the view of the central valley, the staff were friendly, but it was the food that made my stay memorable. I will come back to try anything else Elizabeth makes!

We are more than glad that you had a great stay, we have family rooms and upper floor rooms have better view, so don't hesitate for asking and upgrade upon arrival. Like always our staff will be willing to make your stay the most enjoyable possible. We usually served dinner at 7pm and better if reserved before 6pm if you... More

This is a fine quality boutique hotel in Santa Ana relatively close to the airport, and at the right price. Nice spacious rooms, with big windows... No a/c but breezeways through windows keep you cool. Nice pool with a beautiful garden and great views. There is a classic, rustic feel to the place. 1970's Hotel California kinda thing going on....

We arrived after midnight for a one-night stay and there was someone to greet us at the Hotel Posada and take us to our spacious room. Everything was very nice and we would stay here again. The only thing I would do differently for the next visit to Costa Rica would be to inquire about taxis and fares to the... More

We had a great stay at this little hotel. It seems more like a bed and breakfast type place. The staff is so helpful and friendly and available 24/7. Clean basic rooms at very affordable rates. We didn't eat there but the food smelled great. They gave us a delicious welcome juice upon arrival and even supplied a fan and... More

The only reason I gave it a four star review is because the food was not worth it. Were actually quite disappointed with the quantity. Tasty and fresh but not worth the money. When we were in Puerto Viejo, we found that they were very generous for very cheap prices. The prices for food at this hotel were not so... More

We only stayed here on the last night of our trip as we needed a hotel close to the airport but outside of San Jose. We hope to return to spend more time here as we loved the overall feel of the place. There was a rustic old warm ambience to the hotel. You step out of your room to... More
