The hotel was clean, quiet, impeccable, and quite lovely with stunning views of San Jose, excellent cuisine, and even flamenco dancing on Saturday evening! Very professional and friendly staff. I will stay again at Hotel Alta when I travel to Costa Rica next summer!

The Alta Hotel is terrific and beautiful. We stayed on the 3rd floor in a suite which was perfect for our 5 night stay. The staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating (from the front desk staff to the waiters in the restaurant), the maid service was outstanding also! I have nothing but wonderful things to stay and... More

I would recommend this small friendly hotel for a relaxing break pre or post tour. We stayed 5 night pre tour, the hotel has fantastic views over the valley. I can't praise the staff highly enough everyone we met was so friendly and helpful nothing was to much trouble. The restaurant was excellent we had dinner most nights, the only... More

We stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica on our way out (we had a morning flight the next day). The hotel is very beautiful and chic- we were greeted with fresh pineapple juice and a friendly and helpful staff. It was easy to find, has a very large parking lot, and nearby is a large mall (Multiplex)... More

I arrived hours late, after midnight, and was greeted with two smiling men who handed me a fresh juice with mint. The pool is beautiful. The room was spotless and the bathroom was deluxe. The persian calligraphy on the two-story wall is stunning.

This hotel was recommended by a friend, but it seemed a little out of our price range when I first looked at it. Then I checked one more time before departing for San Jose and the price had dropped $50, so we booked it. What a beautiful hotel, Venetian plaster and cathedral ceilings in the long lobby. The rooms are... More

We chose to spend the night at the Alta Hotel to celebrate my husband's birthday and I cannot say enough about this hotel! From the lobby decor to the rooms, to the restaurant (La Luz), our stay was perfect from beginning to end. The staff was extremely accommodating, the room was spotless, and the restaurant... some of the best food... More

The hotel was great and in a great location for driving around. The hotel staff was excellent!! We went during the rainy season but it never rained before noon. When it did rain it only last and hour or two and was only heavy one out of the five days we were there. Driving is a little crazy there but... More

I am halfway through my second stay at Alta, having been here for a lovely, relaxing week in January. I was greeted like an old friend upon my return, making this feel like a second home.
