The place is squeaky clean. A rooftop partially covered deck is a grand spot to unwind and share some casual time with other guests. A very comfortable setting. Great spot to enjoy the evening. Although it was unadvertised, we were presented with a tasty three course meal at dinner time.(contributions welcome). Cable t.v. worked well. Owner, Laurie, could not possibly... More

I had work for 3 days in San Jose and booked the Cariari B&B when I was unable to book at the Doubletree. I am so glad that I did. Laurie is the supreme hostess and her helpers, Miriam and Victor are lovely people. I was welcomed after a long trip, with a glass of wine and black bean dip... More

I came to Costa Rica for a work-related trip and decided to stay past after my work obligations ended. Cariari B&B has amazing rooms that are well-decorated, clean, well-kept, and comfortable. It also has a top floor lounge and balcony area with a beautiful view. The breakfast options are vast, and the morning spread is as beautiful as it is... More

My husband and I stayed at Cariairi Bed and Breakfast in San Jose. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and very reasonably priced. Laurie was a great host and makes an amazing breakfast! One of the best I've had! It's not far from the airport and easy to get around town for very reasonable rates by taxi.

The bnb was great. Driving directions a little tough try and use gps coordinates in general in cr. The breakfast was delicious and large and room was very large and lovely. All staff were excellent and owner Laurie was a lovely host. A little far from down town San Jose but that was fine with us. Defiantly recommend!

We were recommended Laurie's place by friends & how right they were. It's such a comfortable place to start recovering from jet lag/lack of sleep. The terrace is a wonderful place just to sit and be .The breakfasts were excellent, with such variety.Her staff are so kind. The offer of wine on arrival was just what we needed!!
