I am a resident and come often to san José for personal reasons, which gives me the opportunity to visit several places. Out of Bounds is a gem for its beauty, the nice view (quite windy terrace), the lovely details of the bedrooms, the comfortable beds. Yet, wireless internet is poor and Tv images very disturbed. Breakfast is the bigger... More

I Can't say enough good things about Out of Bounds. First the hotel...beds are super comfortable, breakfast was great and rooms are all clean and large with great views of San Jose and volcanoes from the upper floor. Matteo and Miranda were very helpful with suggestions and bookings for parts of our trip and helped arrange a vehicle for us... More

I live at the beach in Guanacaste and usually go to Escazu for shopping once a month. I first tried Out of Bounds about 4 months ago and since then it has become my home away from home, while in Escazu. The hotel is central for everything in the area and yet very quiet at night time. The hotel has... More

I've never written a review on TripAdvisor before but my stay at Out of Bounds inspired me to take the time to credit Meranda and Matteo on fabulous accommodations and make sure others know of it. For starters, the place was spotlessly clean which was awesome and it just generally felt well-built and comfortable. The beds and linens were great... More

Very good experience with our family (5). Host very welcome and helpful. Nice place. We had a family room (5) : spacious. The quality of the bed is excellent. The vue of San Jose and some volcano from the terrace is gorgeous. The "costa rica breakfast" was more than yummy. Definitely the place to stay while visiting CR.

Just back from my second stay at Out of Bounds in Costa Rica. I really love this boutique hotel, the owners are on site and are so friendly and helpful. The nightime view of the valley from the balconies (and the second floor especially) are just stunning. The breakfasts are still fantastic....simple but oh so tasty. The interior walls of... More
