This is a lovely property with great people. we loved staying here. Al at the front desk is very helpful. The place is clean, safe and quiet. You can walk to a nice coffee and chocolate store. We will be back next year.

We stayed at Posada El Quijote for couple nights, and we enjoyed every minute of it. One of the reasons I booked it originally was because I saw a children's swing in the photo of the property (we have a son who at that time was 18 month old). And we were not disappointed at all. Bjorn and his wife... More

This is a gem in a very nice area of San José. A B&B run by a lovely Norwegian/Colombian couple who are extremely forthcoming and make you feel at home. Spacious and clean rooms and succulent breakfasts. There’s a big living room-like area with terrace where you can hang out, meet others, read a book, surf the web or simply... More

We just returned from a 2 week vacation at Quijote in Costa Rica. We had a wonderful time. The host, Bjorn and the Assistant, Alcides, could not have been more helpful! They were absolutely wonderful and accommodating. The surroundings & grounds were beautiful. I encourage you to make reservations at this beautiful Bed and Breakfast. We will be back!

Arriving in San Jose after a 23 hour trip from Norway, Posada arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport. After a short drive, we were welcomed by Bjorn and Andrea, and instantly we felt like old friends. Posada El Quijote is a homely hotel, where you feel a lot more like staying with family, than in...

My partner and I stayed here for one night, and we sorely regretted leaving so soon!
