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

We stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Comments from a previous traveller are correct. You really need a rental car to stay here and a GPS or you will probably NEVER find it. I used Navsat Ezfind on my Garmin, best maps! This hotel is a few km out of Santa Anna and really has nothing... More

I agree that this hotel is very affordable and clean. The staff is nice and the view is great. But I will pay more for a chain hotel if I really want to experience Costa Rica next time. It is totally not worth it to save that little money on the hotel and waste the airfare flying all the way... More

This hotel is beautiful, clean and well-located. If you have any doubts about this hotel because of how inexpensive it is, don’t be, I can assure you, you will not be disappointed. I was very skeptical myself until I arrived. This hotel is very close to the SJO airport and it’s located on the hills. Having said that, almost every... More

We are more than glad that we went beyond your expectations, we keep very competitive rates so anyone can afford to stay with us, even if your standards are high above don’t be afraid of the low rate, we have proximity to the airport and the high way 27 to the Pacific. Our unbeatable weather is a plus and a... More

We only stayed at this hotel one night before flying home but I'm so glad that we did. We could have stayed at a place closer to the airport but then we wouldn't have had the gorgeous views and the delicious meal at the Italian restaurant down the driveway. The room was gigantic. I've had apartments that are smaller. We... More

We are more than glad that your stay was great, even though it was short you could enjoy most of our facilities. The restaurant down the driveway has a different management and you can also request dinner upon the hotel kitchen. Our rooms are carefully decorated and some of them are beyond the standard rooms. Like you said A/C is... More
