We arrived after a 14 hour journey and were greeted by friendly staff and a glass of delicious juice. The kids perked up and we were shown to our wonderful room. Views over San Jose are gorgeous from up here and my son suggested we throw a party in the shower it was so huge! We slept really well as... More

Very nice place with staff that aim to please. We had to leave before breakfast was served so they gave us a boxed breakfast, but it was ham, cheese, tomato and lettuce on a croissant and there was no fresh coffee available. Both times we are at the restaurant there were things on the menu that they didn't have. Ravioli... More

This beautiful property is on top of a mountain with a spectacular view. The staff is very friendly and helpful and they make a great effort in trying to know each guest by name. Breakfast was included with my rate and it was a delicious full breakfast with tons of fresh fruit. I certainly hope I have the opportunity to... More

We stayed twice in the hotel in August. Wonderful service, nice rooms and excellent restaurant. If you are a Nature Air client you get a discount. The hotel is a convenient location to get to the airport as well. You need a car.

The view is gorgeous! The staff is incredible. My room was phenomenal. I had views of Costa Rica, open balcony with a place to sit, insanely gorgeous bathrooms with impeccable lighting and a spa like ambiance. I was greeted with a tasty pineapple juice cocktail when I arrived. La Luz is a beautiful restaurant and bar that is located inside... More

Alta Hotel is quite beautiful. Wonderfully helpful and gracious staff. The decor is well thought out and overall done with taste and style. Had the food been better, I would have had no reservations to give this hotel a higher review. The following should be considerations: Pros: • Beautiful rooms and grounds • Helpful and welcoming staff • Quietly elegant... More

We arrived Friday night which was 2 AM(EST) and we were wiped. Renaldo picked up at the airport smoothly and without incident as Maria had promised. She was great and coordinated everything in advance perfectly. The room was lovely and the hotel is quaint and wonderfully decorated. The only reason I can not give this wonderful place a 5 is...

Rooms extra large and comfortable. The front desk staff very friendly and helpfull. The restaurant waiters excellent. Stay at the Alta hotel if you want a different feeling from your regular known franchise chain. I usually do not stay at an unkown hotels because the service level is usually a gamble. The Alta is better than the other hotels at... More

We stayed at the Alta Hotel for one night after arriving in San Jose late in the afternoon. It was a great boutique hotel. The staff was friendly and very professional especially at front desk and in the hotel restaurant. The room was clean and comfortable.

Our room was spacious, well equiped and clean. The hotel is conveniently close to the international airport (20 minutes). However, in the vicinity of the hotel is very... More
