It was clean. Parking tight. Bars on the windows. Better than most. They seem to try hard to please. Most will find the accommodations good. Breakfast was pretty good too. Price was fair. Had car alarms going off several times during the night which made one worry.

Stayed here early January and was pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness of the cabin and the grounds overall. Comfortable bed, good amenities, and overall friendly service. We did notice some hesitance and uncertainty as we were a gay couple sharing a room; however, it didn't seem to interfere too much with the service. Would definitely recommend.

We spent one night here, as it is on the way for on early morning trek to Irazu National Park. The cabinas and comfy and cozy! Very clean spaces that stayed nice and toasty throughout the night. The grounds are lovely and you get a fabulous view of the sunset above the clouds. They serve a great breakfast in the... More

We stayed here as we wanted to be close to Irazu NP. We had a cabin, which was alright, but with two drawbacks: at night, it became rather cold, and you hear a lot of noise from the street nearby as well as raindrops on the roof. Breakfast (we had cold only included, warm would have been an extra we... More

I will definitely stay at Grandpa's Hotel anytime!!! The view is spectacular, the grounds beautifully manicured, the cabins are very comfortable, the staff are attentive and welcoming, and the food was delicious and plenty of it. A friend had a birthday while we were there so they provided cake for all of us the night before and pie the night... More

Its clean and its on the road to the volcan irazu. There isn't any better option in the area. We had a good night sleep. I had a medical condition and a got an excellent recommendation for a doctor in Cartago along with careful directions. Most of the windows in the villa do not open and there is no air... More

We stayed here for five nights while we were volunteering with Habitat for Humanity Costa Rica. Everyone at the hotel ensured our needs were met. If we wanted coffee when we came back from working, it was ready for us. If we wanted our dinner later, they accommodated our schedule. The view is fantastic. It is an easy commute into... More

A charming place where I stayed for four nights when working with Habitat for Humanity. The service was outstanding, the rooms very clean, and the food was excellent. Someone in our group was a vegetarian and they remembered to accommodate her at every dinner. I stayed in the main house but you could also stay in one of the cabins.... More

First of all, the setting is magnificent. 5 minutes outside of Cartago on the main road to Irazu Volcano. Magnificent views...when it's not raining! We stayed in the large room in the back of the main house. It was like a college dorm room with carpet and a bunch of beds but it worked for our family of 5. Hot... More

A lovely place to end our whirlwind first visit to Costa Rica. Staff were wonderful! The cabin we stayed in (#6) was clean and cozy. Looking out onto a field, we were able to leave our curtains open. The breakfasts were fine (don't be disappointed if the sausage and ham turns out to be half a hot dog and a... More
