Quite a big hotel and not a lot of atmosphere but the Reception staff were helpful. Beautiful extensive manicured gardens with a lot of birds and butterflies. Good swimming pool but no drinks bar. You can order drinks by telephone but it took over 30 mins just to deliver 2 soft drinks! Big comfortable room with a good view onto... More

Transportation was provided to and from the airport and hotel, which is about a half hour drive. The rooms were quite comfortable and the customer service was excellent. The food for our breakfasts and one dinner was fresh and nicely presented.... More

About a half hour ride from the San Jose airport, this was a great place to relax after our flight before moving on the next morning. The room was large, very clean and everything worked well. There was a balcony big enough to sit on, overlooking the lovely garden. We got a good night's sleep, very quiet. We spent a... More

Great rooms, comfortable beds, the very best sheets, good food, but the showers are the worst I have experienced; oscillating back and forth between hot & cold continuously (two rooms, 3 days, all the same)

We stayed at this hotel at the beginning and at the end of our Costa Rican adventure. We were travel weary both times, so the fast and painless registration process was very welcoming. The rooms are a very nice size with windows that open to allow for a breeze and a ceiling fan. You can also open the door and... More

Our first stop on our University of Washington birdwatching tour was here at the Hotel Bougainvillea. The grounds were great for just strolling or watching birds. We even watched a wedding on the premise. Food was very good =as well.

We stayed at the Hotel Bougainvillea 3 separate times between trips and it made a wonderful base for relaxing and re-grouping. Their gardens are extensive and beautiful, rooms are nice and dining good but not exceptional San Jose is a $12 cab ride away and worth a day trip and for dining choices. Airport is about $15 trip. If you... More

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Santo Domingo. Spotless accommodations, gracious and helpful staff. They couldn't do enough to make our stay with them enjoyable. The gardens are amazing and we really enjoyed our 4 days with them.

This hotel is close to perfection compared to all the others I've been to in Costa Rica. The employees are very nice, the rooms perfectly clean, there is no additional cost to benefit from the WiFi, the food is good and the garden is simply wonderful with its thousands of colourful plants and birds. The bongainvillea also possesses its own... More

Very Nice Room - clean and comfortable. I loved the grounds. I was able to bird watch and found many species all around the hotel, even an owl after dinner. The restaurant had good food and good wine. That is enough for me. Service was slow, but what the heck...it was time to slow down.
