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

I stayed here for one night at the tail end of a Costa Rican vacation before returning home. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the location is relatively close to the airport. I stayed in room #11 on the upper level, quite spacious and clean with a king sized bed. The only downsides were a few people smoking outside... More

About 20 mins from the airport. Nice almost Tuscan type house. Large rooms with nice courtyard with pool. Wifi is good. View is great as its on the top of a hill with mountain surrounding. You'll need a god to find it as its kinda in the middle of nowhere. We stayed there after getting in later in the evening... More

We stayed here after coming in on an afternoon flight into San Jose. It was fairly easy to find from the airport and we were very impressed from the moment we arrived. The staff was very pleasant and breakfast was delicious (and huge!). The grounds were lovely and it was nice to be out of the city a bit. The... More

We stayed here twice upon arriving and leaving SJO. It's a great family run little hotel that is in a secluded location that is very well maintained. You need a rental car to stay here or else you can't access anything. The room we stayed in had a large king and small double bed. There is no AC but you... More

We stayed here for one night when we arrived in Costa Rica. We liked it very much as a relaxing, reasonably priced and beautiful place to stay for one night, before taking a small plane out to the Osa Peninsula. The staff (particularly Elisabeth, who spoke English and was extremely helpful) were wonderful, and the food, eaten outdoors near the... More

This is a conveniently located hotel near the airport in Santa Ana which is great if you arrive on a late flight or leave on an early one. The hotel Hotel Posada Canal Grande is close to: (1) Business Center Forum 1; (2), Business Center Forum 2, and (3) the Momentum Lindora Shopping Center. We really liked this hotel and... More

Stayed here for a class trip on our first night in Costa Rica and our last. It is easily my favorite hotel I've stayed in. The gardens surrounding the place are breathtaking, the lobby and backyard are wonderful, and the staff were like our family. We all (3 chaperones, 19 college students) agreed that this was the best place we... More
