I booked this hotel through Expedia. After reviewing the reviews, I decided to cancel my reservations with this hotel through Expedia. I was well within the no charge cancellation timeframe however this hotel still charged my credit card. I've been contacting them for the last three weeks for my refund to no avail. The manager continued to tell me that... More

I was booked to stay here for a friend's wedding last month (which she had started planning about a year in advance). After several staff turnovers during this period, the hotel repeatedly failed to stick to commitments (constantly changing plans that had already been agreed to, etc.). Eventually the wedding had to be moved to another hotel at the last... More

No lights on in hallways when I arrived - the staff had me follow in the pitch dark to the room! And, that was after not finding the reservation and much confusion at the desk first. Booked the largest room, but when we arrived, Beacon staff had "no record" of the reservation - even though we had both called and... More

I booked a stay for the few days after Christmas of 2014. 3 weeks before the check-in dates, I started to call the hotel to make sure my reservation is ok. The staff spoke English but was hard to be understood. I told them my reservation number which I received in email, after booking from the hotel's OWN website. First,... More

The General Manager Jake and Revenue Manager Randall are a disgrace to the Costa Rican tourism industry. Please be forewarned! We reserved this place in 2013 for our wedding on Dec 29, 2014, but were so fed up by the incompetent service and insulted by the unacceptable behavior of the management that we switched venues 5 days before the event....

I would recommend NOT staying at this hotel .Very poor customer service, the place is run by a general manager (Jake) and revenue manager (Randall) who have no concept of civility and hurl insults and threats at customers.

This was our first stop in Escazu after landing in San Jose and I was impressed with how beautiful it was. It is definitely a boutique hotel in every sense of the word. There is an extensive garden complete with local plants, including banana trees, which was really exciting for someone who had previously never left the US! My room... More

Surprisingly great hotel for the price. Charming and tastefully decorated, with extremely comfortable bed, bedding and pillows- a real rarity in Costa Rica! The rooftop view is not to be missed- gorgeous both day and night. Very friendly staff, too. The pool is a little small, if that matters to you, but a nice hot tub and sauna. My only... More

I only had a short meeting in the area and otherwise needed a nice place to relax. The nice photos on their website as well as all the references to the spa made this place appealing for our 2-night stay. However we were fairly disappointed. Firstly, there really isn't a pool. It is a tiny thing and no place to... More
