If you are looking for a quiet, simple hotel with beautiful views and a bed and breakfast feel to it in Santa Ana, I would recommend staying here. The staff were very friendly, specifically Elizabeth, whom my roommates and I have fallen in love with. She speaks perfect English, cooks exquisite food and was just a delight to be around.... More

It felt a bit out of the way, but it wasn't really. You definitely need a car. I didn't like the decor at all (but that's a personal thing maybe). It's a simple hotel. Felt cold and damp in the rainy season. Staff were friendly. WiFi was OK but only if I left my room to get a clear signal.... More

We had a wonderful experience at this hotel. The location is beautiful. The hotel is relaxing and inviting. The courtyard with the lounge chairs and canopy beds surrounding the pool is magical. The staff is very attentive to the needs of the guests. The rooms are large and inviting

My grandson and I arrived well before check-in because of an early flight. It happens, and is usually a problem, especially in high season. The staff made us comfortable in the lobby and got us into the first room they had available; we were so grateful! We signed up in advance for the gourmet meal they were preparing for only... More

I visited there two nights when I first arrived to Costa Rica Feb 26+27th 2015 and then again one night March 10, 2015 before leaving to fly home. It was further from the airport than I thought it was. The taxi cost about $28 U.S. Each way. The meals I had there were fantastic. I had the fish all three... More

Nestled in the hills just west of the city of san Jose, is this quaint little hotel. Very quiet area. The rooms were large and comfortable. The food-served in evenings-was very tasty. You ate outside, by the pool. Very relaxing... The pool temperature was quite chilly. Otherwise, everything else contributed to a very relaxing, comfortable and quiet visit. Thank you!

We stayed one night before going into San Jose. We arrived before check-in time but Elizabeth in reception (who speaks very good English) said she would ask that our room be made ready as soon as possible. She invited us to sit in the lounge or around the pool where she brought us a fresh juice drink while we waited.... More

We stayed here on our first night in Costa Rica. The place is beautiful and the staff couldn't have been nicer (Elizabeth in particular). The food was very good and they have a bar open round the clock. They will also arrange for a driver to pick you up from the airport. The price was low compared to other hotels... More
