I admit that I did not take advantage of this property. We booked it as an overnight/layover spot on our way thru San Jose en route to the Nicoya Peninsula. This is not the kind of place that you stay for a brief stop-over, it's far too lush and relaxing with a great spa, pool and food. It deserves a... More

Our stay at the Hotel was unique. Being on our Honeymoon we wanted to chill and enjoy Costa Rica . The Hotel we booked was great ,but I felt it was more so for a spiritual retreat. The front desk staff was great. The staff while.only consisting of maybe 3-4 people were pretty amazing. They took great care of and... More

Stayed here for two days at the end of my travelling. The grounds are very impressive and the staff very professional, always attentive and making sure you are comfortable and have enough water etc. the property is constantly being cleaned and the grounds maintained. There are a number of spa treatments you can get (at an extra cost of course).... More

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.
