This is the best place to stay. We received top notch service. Staff is outstanding and they make you feel like family. Rooms are beautiful and super clean. We ate at the restaurant 4 times and it was great. I was amazed at how well thought out the gardens are. This gem of a hotel will not disappoint you. Thank... More

Gardens lovely and obliging staff but room was outdated with a poor shower. Room for a comfortable chair but no chair in room and an acute lack of chairs to relax in the very pleasant pool area.Both Dinner and Breakfast far below standard.

This was the second year in a row that we have stayed here (for the first and last nights of our Costa Rica vacation) and we thoroughly enjoyed it once again. The landscaped gardens are beautiful, the pool is clean, cool, and refreshing, the cabins are quaint and comfortable, and the breakfasts and dinners are good. New cabins have been... More

For the last 5 years, we have stayed here when we have the need to be overnight near the airport...probably 7 times. This is a precious boutique hotel near the airport, but far enough away to not have any traffic from the highway or airplane noise. It has comfortable beds, clean rooms, beautiful well-kept gardens all around, a good buffet... More

Located in the sprawling city of Alajuela, it is a little garden of Eden. It has very well kept grounds and facilities. As many people have already mentioned, a perfect starting point and/or ending point for your vacation in Costa Rica. It's relative closeness to the airport makes it an ideal place. Not to be4 overlooked are some of the... More

Very good basic accommodation. Extremely convenient for the airport. Helpful reception staff. Early morning calls and take away breakfasts. Good food but struggled with service due to understaffing on the night we ate there.

Thank you for the review. We apologize for the service problems you experienced with the restaurant in late February. We subsequently closed the restaurant so as to reorganize the staff, and menu alike. We are now very happy with the result. Both plate quality and speed of delivery is much better. We are happy that you found the hotel services,... More

We stayed here for a full day and night between arriving in San Jose and flying out to Drake Bay. It's very convenient ($15) from the airport and it's safe and peaceful with a pool and well kept gardens. Don't waste a day in San Jose! Stay here instead! A side note is that their restaurant is currently closed, but... More
