Our plane was delayed due to mechanical problems, but driver from Costa Verde slept in car, waiting for our flight. As he drove us off the beaten path, it flashed across my mind we were being kidnapped or worse. It was dark, we were way out in back country, dirt roads. Alas, we arrived at Costa Verde Inn and were... More

This is a very quiet peaceful Hotel, clean. Very friendly and helpful staff. I took notice of the scenery. Worth more than you pay. Excellent healthy breakfast, charming and romantic sense. I will return happily.

Quiet, perfect location, friendly staff, clean, big apartment with terasse overlooking the mountains, delicious Costa Rican breakfast. Love it!! Have tried many hotels during my 8 years in the country and this is my favorite! Also stayed in the sister hotel in Manuel Antonio and it's excellent

Stayed 2 different nights in two different rooms, book-ending a week-long Costa Rica trip. Our first stay was in room 3. I *really* wondered why all the great reviews after staying in this room. Yea, the price is good, but this room is worn out and dingy. The beds are rocks. There was no one around to check us in... More

Stayed at Costa Verde Inn for 1 night after arriving late in San Jose. The reception closes at 10pm but they stayed open a little later for us after we were delayed in arriving. This was greatly appreciated! The room was very spacious and the breakfast the next morning was great. Based in Escazu, just outside of San Jose so... More

I think if you were looking for a place with lots of charm, very secluded, in this mountainside suburb of San Jose, away from the bustle of that city....and you wanted to write and not have any distractions, this would be ideal. The rooms are quite spacious and clean. Breakfast has pinto de gallo, eggs, fresh fruit, fresh coffee and... More

Nice hotel, excellent breakfast, to far out really no place to walk to, hotel staff very nice and helpful. Not much of a view, our bathroom was huge, you had to take a taxi everywhere. Most guest we spoke to were there for medical tourism

We stopped in for several nights at the Costa Verde while waiting for our bus to get some TLC at the mechanics. We didn't love the idea of booking a hotel, but wanted to be nearby- turned out to be quite impressed with the comfort of Costa Verde. The room was large and well appointed, and the grounds were immaculate,... More

We spent four nights here and aside from being very difficult to find this place was great! The staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was tasty and made to order. We were awakened by 3 earthquakes one night, part of the charm of Costa Rica I guess! Other than that the grounds were beautiful and very peaceful. Honor bar... More

Now please realize Im writing this review after leaving a 5 star resort... But I will say the grounds were nice, the staff was welcoming but the rooms were so-so. A little odd of a location so having the staff pick you up at airport is probably the best route. My only complaint would be ants in the bathroom :/
