Very accommodating to a group of naturalists from the USA. Excellent service, great rooms, amazing grounds, and great food - what more could you want? We had great service from the front desk, restaurant and bar staff. Great birdwatching in the garden.

Rooms are clean and average size. No air conditioning which is surprising because the price is not cheap. Breakfast choices were limited. Hotel was almost empty they still gave us a room with the street view instead of the beautiful garden view which is the one nice feature of the resort. We birded in the beautiful garden both am and... More

Without a doubt, this was our favorite hotel during our recent trip to Costa Rica. Orchids can be found throughout the extensive gardens and also inside the hotel. Flowers and plants of every shape and size are in beautiful condition. The rooms are quite nice including the bathrooms, the balconies overlooking the gardens are amazing. We really enjoyed sitting on... More

We had a fantastic stay and enjoyed the gardens and the ambiance. The hotel is convenient to the airport and San Jose. The service is polite, helpful and willing to go out of their way to accommodate guests. I wish we could have stayed longer. Maybe next time. Phil Peters

Staff very courteous and helpful. Room comfortable and clean with beautiful updated bath. The grounds are very beautiful, full of flowering and fruiting plants that attract many interesting birds. Gift shop is small but comprehensive

I have stayed here every time that I go to San Jose. It is quiet, peaceful and being in the mountains outside of San Jose, it is a cooler climate. Just kick back and relax around the swimming pool or enjoy the gardens. I remember having breakfast in the restaurant and watching the hummingbirds fluttering from plant to plant. The... More

"Very pleasant and helpful. We had left some clothing in the room and returned a week later to the hotel and the articles were found safe and sound. The gardens are beautiful and home to some great birds."

My fiancé and I stayed one night either side of an amazing Nature adventure to the south west part of the country. Wonderful warm staff so helpful, enjoyed my basic Spanish but English was fantastic when I couldn't quite figure out my translation! Lovely gift shop, awesome restaurant, great gym, clean comfortable rooms and such beautiful gardens. Will hope to... More
