I cannot recommend this guesthouse highly enough. I stayed here at the beginning, the middle and the end of my two weeks in Costa Rica and Fabian, Rosa and Jose really made the trip a memorable one. The guesthouse itself is lovely, with fantastic views out over the city from the balcony and the beautiful sitting room. They also helped... More

We were at Posada for the first day of our honey moon. Then we decided to go back because it was so great. The last time we were there my new hubby got sick and the staff helped nurse him back to health. A wonderful place to stay! We loved it! Don't stay here if you don't like dogs. They'll... More

Posada El Quijote is a great place to stay in the San Jose area. The views are superb, especially at night, and the place has a very comfortable and warm feeling. We arrived at the hotel late in the evening and unfortunately I was feeling rather ill. Rosa, at the front desk advised us of where the hospital was and... More

The staff at Posada were helpful in providing info and answering any questions prior to our arrival to CR. We stayed there on our last day in CR after a week of traveling around the country. I was looking forward to meeting with Henry and Bobo (Beverly) after reading many good comments about them. However, on the day of our... More

On May 17 I flew into San Jose, Costa Rica. I had reservations at a bed and breakfast called Posada El Quijote in a suburb of San Jose called Escazu. Hernan, the driver who had been arranged to meet me picked me up at the airport and whisked me off to the b&b. I was really excited and tired (I... More

Thanks for making our stay in Costa Rica so enjoyable! We will never forget your hospitality. You made us feel like family and we will always have fond memories of our stay in Costa Rica. We miss Bev's wonderful breakfasts and Henry's unique sense of humor! Thanks for all of your advice and assistance in planning our itinerary. The Posada... More

Fantastico is the only way to describe this place. The inn is perched on a hillside taking advantage of the cool breezes. The best rooms in the inn are comfortable and include spacious bathrooms. What really makes this place are the Canadian/German innkeepers. They make it feel like a home away from home and make the stay truly enjoyable. (Make... More

All of the reviews on Trip Advisor are correct! This place was lovely - the view, the rooms...everything! Bev and Henry are wonderful - friendly, warm and helpful! They made us feel at home. The rooms were very clean and we loved the dogs (Diego, Max, and Sofia)! The only disappointment is the fact that we didn't stay there longer.... More

This hotel is great, but it's innkeepers are even better. The location overlooks the city and is breath-taking -- especially at night. But the real value is the advice and support that you get from Henry and Beverly. They can have rental cars delivered to your door, at prices below any thing online or at the airport. They know where... More

I have beend remiss on not posting my comments earlier; however, I've just discovered this website and must comment on this Inn which is truly a "home away from home" for all who enter. The reception received by one and all, and invariably by the managing couple, Henry and Beverly Penner, is warm and welcoming. You may be greeted with... More
