My husband and I stay here every time we are in San Jose. The view of San Jose simply cannot be beat, especially at night. The hotel is situated high up on a hill with fresh air and a nice cool breeze. The grounds are surrounded by a fence and there is 24 hour security, making it feel very safe.... More

This hotel was 30$ a night and 50$ a night for the view that overlooks San Jose from the top of the hill. It has the most amazing view because of its height in the mountain and at night you can see the whole city lit up beneath you. Breakfast is included and so is wifi and also.....you get free... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful--I planned a lot of day trips with their help and advice, and my son and I had a great time. The hotel is a ways up on the mountain on the southwest side of town, and not near the airport or the city center. For the money, you can't beat it--it has a... More

We stayed here 3 nights and it was perfect. Nice and quiet, beautiful views everywhere you looked! The area is quiet but there are a few resturaunts within walking distance, and the bus to the city is just down the road. It was cheap and easy to take to and from the city. Our room was nice and clean, breakfast... More

The lights of the entire San Jose region will sparkle below you at night when you stay in this hotel up in the hills above Escazu. The place is set up nicely with the balcony rooms offering quite expansive views. Many rooms have buildings in the way of the views or they don't have views so make sure to get... More

Very nice, clean hotel with friendly staff. The staying in the hotel we were enjoying a lots. It was too much beautiful and relaxing place, that we didn't wanted go outside from the hotel. The hotel has very nice view, you have feeling you are in sky, or in some plane who just landing.

Great view of San Jose and surrounding mountains/volcanos. Staff is very attentive and supportive. Rates are very reasonable. We have brought mission teams from our church in Texas the last three years to work with the CCA church in Alajuelita and we will be back again next year.

If your staying any more than one night you'd have to be crazy. If your staying for a few days following cosmetic surgery change your plans. Bad area of town, small rooms, dirty, smells terrible, didn't speak English. I had nine days scheduled for an after surgery retreat. I got in at 10 p.m. and I was so shocked I... More

Honestly we cannot believe the value you get at this top of the mountain lodging. The view alone is with more plus the rooms are clean and top notch. Great strong wi fi. Fernando went above and beyond in answering our questions and making us comfortable. He is a great resource for any needs you may have. Cannot overstate the... More
