The hotel is beautiful and has excellent views. Unfortunately the attention to detail is low, since we noticed poor room maintenance. The dinner was overpriced and understaffed. The staff was thoughtful. The place looks good, but needs more care.

Asclepios is a true gem for everyone that seeks to rejuvenate, relax and charge batteries. The rooms a gorgeous. We stayed in Eros with a bathtub as romantic detail. The facilities are great with Hamman, relaxation and yoga room, beautiful gardens to explore, a gorgeous pool area and a fantastic restaurant which is also open to the public and offers... More

Asclepios has important positive aspects which make it a very good place to visit. It has that advantage that it is really close to cities like Alajuela or San Jose but at the same time it is in a secluded area which I understood used to be a farm so, as you can imagine, it is surrounded by nature and...

My girlfriend and I planned a relaxing week in Costa Rica well in advance and originally selected accommodation at a different location. We received notification 3 weeks before our travel to Costa Rica that our original hotel selection was cancelled by the hotel which required that we make last-minute plans concerning our lodging. We stumbled upon Asclepios and booked out... More

Asclepios is a great place to stay. The views are amazing, the staff is excellent, rooms are clean and food is great. It is a very peaceful escape from the normal everyday craziness. It is very quiet and relaxing. I would recommend it.

Stayed here for 5 nights, the rooms and grounds are really beautiful. The staff seemed pleasant enough when spoken to. But tended to keep themselves to themselves. Arial who worked there was very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed speaking to him about the local area.

I stayed at the hotel for 7 nights and had no problems at all. The place itself is really beautiful and the surrounding grounds are very well taken care off. The room is super neat and spacious with tons of white colored themes that invite relaxation. I found the bed a bit hard and small, compared to my regular king... More

We stayed here for one night before flying out of SJO. We had a difficult time directing the taxi driver to the hotel. The hotel grounds are truly beautiful. Our hotel room was gorgeous and the bed was heavenly. But our bathroom was out of shampoo and body lotion - indicating shoddy room service and maintenance. We mentioned this to... More

We stayed at Asclepios in December 2014/January 2015 and we are in agreement with the past and recent reviews about the mixed experience. There is no question that the rooms, facilities and grounds are beautiful. It is a quiet, serene environment. Not to mention, it is incredibly close to the airport (20 minute drive) - so if you happen to... More
