We spent our last night in Costa Rica at Tierra Magica. Having fallen in love with Costa Rica, and every Casita, Cabina and home we'd stayed in, we ultimately regretted our decision to spend our last night at an airport hotel. Taking the advice of one of our hosts, we managed, on short notice to find an available room at... More

I highly recommend Tierra Magica. Barbara and Otto are so welcoming. They took care of my sister and I just like family. Every need we had was met with complete satisfaction and a warm friendly smile. The breakfast each morning was really something to look forward to. The food was prepared to perfection and served to us with grace and... More

I absolutely and unconditionally recommend this very special haven in the middle of busy Escazú. Barbara truly embodies the justly famed Tico hospitality. She is always there for you with helpful advice, tourist information, taxis, you name it. The breakfasts are memorable, giving typical Costa Rican fare and added touch of elegance and class. The rooms are very spacious, clean... More

The Palatial room was our first big surprise, Very clean and comfortable bed, nicely decorated and super nice views outside the huge windows. We loved it so much that we went back after 4 weeks! Barbara and Otto, where very very nice and they looked... More

Not far from San Jose. Airy, large rooms with cable TV, nice garden. Reasonably priced, the breakfast is a highlight. All the staff try to help, like finding the bus or a restaurant. They call you a taxi if you need one. Price is good, close to everything. Safe place. I will be definitely come back again.

Tierra Magica is a friendly B&B situated in Escazu, not too far from the airport. I booked via booking.com and reserved a taxi through the B&B directly. Pick up was punctual and service friendly. In the guesthouse i was welcomed by Otto and Barbara, who showed me to my room: this was a bit bigger than average and the bathroom... More

I stayed here for several nights and can't say enough about how good it is. The setting is so beautiful - and in the middle of San Jose it seems unbelievable. Flowers, verandas, shaded breakfast nooks with blossoms peeking over your shoulder. Kind of like paradise. And the rooms are very large and beautifully done. The tiled bathroom, the wood... More

We recently spent two nights at the "Tierra Magica" and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a small hotel in an excellent location not far from the hospital Cima. The hostess and her staff were very friendly and attentive. The rooms comfortable and tastefully decorated, The breakfast was excellent.

I stayed in Tierra Magica for 5 very pleasant nights. I would highly recommend this lovely place for anyone passing through the San Jose area - Having experienced other alternatives in San Jose and Escazu, I think this place come out tops. Barbara is a welcoming, relaxed host who gives real attention to detail. Breakfasts are delicious, served in the... More
