When booking, sometimes one does not know what to expect. This property surpassed our expectations. We are season international travelers, yet always surprised still. The hotel is staff with the friendliest, most helpful and kind people, as we have found the people of CR to be. We had to leave our last booking in Arenal because what was posted as... More

The food at the restaurant in the hotel is delicious, really a good deal for what you are paying. The bartender made amazing drinks and was super... More

Villa San Ignacio is a short drive from the airport but feels like it is in the mountains. As you pass through the gates you feel like you are on an estate filled with flowers and garden paths. Though it is true, as some reviewers have stated, that the sounds of the road can be heard, you will feel very... More

Great, tropical, comfortable, safe hotel we stayed at for one night. Pablo and staff treated us like family - very friendly and accomodating. There was chess & pool in the game room and a nice swimming pool. The room had air conditioning and a safe box. Restaurant was open past 10:00. Beautiful location with everything we needed.

I slept very well (nice bed), there was a bit of traffic noise but it didn't bother me that much. It is after all a city area. Breakfast is ok. Lunch and... More

Charming hotel with a beautiful bar/restaurant, great pool area, comfortable room & bed, and friendly staff. The food was excellent. My husband had the tenderloin which he said was one of the best he's ever enjoyed (which is saying something). I had the chicken fingers made from scratch, very good. Also, cannot say enough how grateful we were to be... More
