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 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

This is where using trip advisor reviews count so much. Warm, friendly staff who are accommodating and truly helpful. Food offered at reasonable prices for dinner and of great value.
