The most scenic hotel in Costa Rica. I totally fell in love with their location, organic food, yoga classes and rituals, and the healing spa. It is located in Alajuela, Costa Rica, surrounded by GREEN! The sun rays would shine through my window at 5 in the morning, birds would sing while I opened my eyes, stretched my arms and... More

Facility is very sleek yet simple. Beautiful grounds. Focus is on spa & healing. Rooms are simple, but nice, great views of the countryside. The restaurant was excellent however, the do not have coffee or beer available. They have many tea options though (must be a healing thing). The staff was extremely helpful with planning assistance for the remainder of... More

We arrived after a 22 hours flight.... And we got exactly what we wanted and needed... Peace and quiet. This is a wellness hotel dedicated to heal the body and soul without any unnecessary distractions. We are vegan, so fruit breakfast is ideal. The rooms are decorated very nice and clean. The hotels design is very comforting. The grounds are... More

Asclepios was a great experience with a great view over the pool to the countryside. Strangely, we were the only ones there, which made our honeymoon even more special. We got the massage package, which we had outdoors. Beautiful, it started to thunder and lightning as the sun set. It was excellent. Vivian and Stephanie did a great Swedish massage.... More

We had a very nice time in this place. The hotel is very quiet. The swimming pool is nice with a stunning view on the forest....a bit dark though in the evening...don't stay there more than two nights...this hotel is a sort of transition in your holidays....

We would have given 5 stars if it weren't for the paper thin walls. We could hear everything the couple said/sang next to us. The restaurant had decent food. Very well presented.. Tastes organic. Shower pressure was decent but our bed was very hard.

Ready for quiet relaxation? Even with massage treatments you are there. The steam bath and pools are fantastic. Peace and quiet of no tv in the rooms. The desk will set up tours of San Jose for you with a smile on their face. The hot tub and Hamm';s weren't working when I was there, but the staff was so... More

A world away from San Jose but less than half an hours drive. Spectacular property overlooking a stunning forested valley; feels remote as its so quiet with no light pollution. Calm, clean, harmonious design reflects the setting. Undoubtedly this place will cleanse your soul. Breakfast was simple with fresh fruit and seeds….warming to caffeine addicts - no coffee here.

This is white, chic place, very quiet indeed. We stayed two nights, just arrived from Europe, so that we went to bed early and got up early again, so we didn't miss TV or entertainment. The dinner was marvellous, with choice between 5-6 different dishes (no red meat), tasty white organic wine. Rooms were in good shape, however no Kleenex... More
