This property is absolutely gorgeous. It featured very comfortable guest rooms, beautiful views, and excellent, friendly staff. My husband and I took a delightful stroll through the neighbourhood and felt completely safe. We dined in the on site restaurant and everything was fresh, delicious and satisfying... not a single complaint from me. I highly recommend and can't wait to return.

The Grand Tara hotel is located in the area of Excauzu just outside Costa Rica's capital of San Jose. Situated on a hill, the hotel offers panoramic views of the entire city. Enjoy a wonderful meal while taking in one of the most amazing views you can imagine. Once a majestic plantation home, the estate is now home to one... More

The good: Beautiful place, inside and out. Warm, friendly, helpful, fluent in English staff. Good wi-fi. Good coffee. Provide taxi rides to town for tour pickup. Quiet. Clean. The meh: It's far away from anything meaning taxis...or rent a car. The tours won't pick you up from the hotel. Restaurant didn't open for us to sample. Details: Soon after finding... More

My husband and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon on Jan. 1-3. The building, rooms and view were beautiful. I loved the details like gorgeous hardwood floors throughout and actual metal keys with the name of our room engraved on the keychain! But, it's set off by itself so you don't really have much choice but to stay... More

The Building and views are outstanding but sadly that's where it stops. We had flown 18 hours and when we arrived at 10pm we was told the Restaurant was closed but we could order a drink from the bar, exhausted, we went straight to bed. The room was huge but very dated and the toiletries dispenser was empty. We spent... More
