There is no TV in the rooms so you really can enjoy the quietness of the place. The owner, José, is an amazing person who made us... More

My wife and I spent a couple nights at Hotel Quelitales in July. We loved it, Jose and the staff were more than just polite or helpful, they gave us the feeling we were part of their family. I would return to this property whenever I am in the Cartago/Orosi area.
