Just returned from Costa Rica and I stayed at Paradise Cosmetic Inn. I just read one of the reviews and had to answer this. I have never written a review before. I had a wonderful stay at Paradise. They were waiting for me when I got off of the plane. The driver was very nice and then we pulled up... More

I stayed at paradise inn before and after surgery. The staff always went out of their way to check on me and make my stay one of a kind. The view is like no other, and the tranquility is uncomparable. If rest and relaxation is what you're looking for... There is nowhere else to go in San Jose. The food... More

This hotel is perfect if you are looking for peace and quiet. It is off the beaten path on the side of a mountain with a picture perfect view of the san jose valley. Dunia and Raul and the staff are as friendly and helpful as anyone can be. There IS a restaurant and if you dont like that there... More

Booked this after the good reviews but was shocked at how bad it was. The services advertised on the best western site were not available, the shuttle was not available, the spa was not available, there was no restraunt facility. I doubt the genuineness of some reviews of this hotel because of the massive difference in promised services and what... More

Let me preface this review by saying the hotel owner goes out of his way to make you feel at home. The hotel has an amazing view of San Jose and if you want to just get away and read a good book and are on a budget and not looking for excitement...this is your spot. As with all Best... More

We loved their chifrijo with a cold beer! I would definitely stay there again. When it was not raining, the view was... More

Raul went out of his way, a really! great host. The staff is excellent! The rooms are modern, very clean. The views are incredible, especially at night. The price to value relationship is off the charts. The air is not humid and is very cool, which makes for a truly great nights sleep. This is my new favorite retreat to... More
