This place must have been amazing in the 1950s. It has great outdoor space and views but the rooms are a little dodgy. If you have been spending time in hostels I think it is a great selection however if you have expectations greater than hostel quality I would look elsewhere. Breakfast was included then it was not, upcharge for... More

We have stayed here numerous times as husband/wife only, as a family, and with a group of high school students/college students. The view is absolutely stunning. It's my numero uno choice for a first or last night when flying to/from SJO. And it's a quick trip to the airport if you can avoid Escazu traffic! The rooms are individually "decorated"... More

The views from this hotel are phenominal. It sits nearly at the top of Pico Blanco. However, when I made my reservation, I told them I needed a room on the first floor due to a handicap problem I have. When I checked in, I reconfirmed this and they said I only had to walk up one stair. Well, the... More

I stayed here for one night, but it was one extremely memorable night in the clouds. Located at a high elevation you can see the whole valley. While I knew I was staying in Costa Rica, the hotel felt like a villa in Southern Europe. It was peaceful and very relaxed. My room had a great view, with both a... More

We've been to Costa Rica several times and we always return to Pico Blanco to begin and end our trip. We have become friends with the owners and enjoy the personal, professional service we receive. Getting there is an exciting adventure in itself. One really gets to see the workings of the country. The rooms are clean, spacious and "what... More

I was very happy with my stay. Yes, I paid cash, but they seemed to take credit cards when I was there (they just told me it was cheaper if I paid cash, so I did). The views from the rooms were so amazing for the price - a whole wall of my big room was a massive window. I... More

Arrived March 8th for 3 nights. Informed on arrival they did not take credit cards, although they asked for it when I reserved the room. First night (and only night), there were no towels in my room. Guard takes me to adjacent room and grabs a towel off of the shower rack that was still damp from previous guest. Room... More
