I saw a deal for this hotel so we stayed for one night before we left San Jose. The hotel is set up in the hills, but was easy to find with the GPS. The inside kind of looks like a castle. There was cool decor. The room was huge and we had a private deck overlooking the valley. The... More

Stayed here in 2012 for a night after a late flight arrival and again before flying out of San Jose. Upon arrival, the hotel's lights were all off and it was a bit scary walking through a dark hallway waiting for the sensor light to come on. The room/bath were clean but also a bit dark. I do remember the... More

Grand, elegant and stylish. Started our honeymoon in Costa Rica here - just wish we'd booked it for longer. Served the tastiest food we ate in the 4 regions we visited and the view from our private balcony provided a lovely introduction to the Costa Rican landscape. Worth every penny!

From the delicious welcome drink upon arrival at the hotel, to the pool, air conditioned rooms, and gorgeous balcony views, you can't go wrong staying here. We originally booked two nights but then stayed a third because we loved the hotel and its surroundings so much. The hotel is built into a hill, affording every room a terrific view. Plus,... More

We stayed here as the very welcome end to 24 hours of travelling, but wish we could have extended our stay. About 20 mins from the airport, this is a boutique hotel which would have been perfect for exploring the city. Great staff, from check in to breakfast (which was traditionally Costa Rican and delicious), to housekeeping. There's a fabulous... More

We only stayed for one night, but it was excellent. It's very eclectic. The restaurant had great food. Great view of the city. The rooms are a good size and it's perfectly priced. Great for couples. It's in between 2 small cities, so there's plenty to do. The giant mall is just 1.5 miles away.

It is difficult to describe the beauty of this hotel, the building itself is quite extraordinary with the reception entrance on the third floor, rooms above and below in part linked by a staggered stone stairway leading down the the restaurant and outdoor area with pool.

We only had one night in this hotel at the end of our trip, but we would definitely return. The hotel, restaurant, and grounds are beautiful. We had an excellent meal at the restaurant, both the beef and salmon were expertly prepared and arranged. The pool also looked very nice but we did not have time to swim.
