Have been there several times and have never been disappointed. Nelson, the owner, sees to every detail and he and his staff bend over backwards to make your visit to Costa Rica memorable. All food is fresh and prepared when you order it and always very tasty. The ambiance is amazing; when sitting in the center courtyard you feel as... More

This B&B is located in a quiet neighborhood on two lots with 23 rooms. Family live on premises and do a wonderful job of landscaping the grounds, attracting all sorts of birds....they even have a sloth you can interact with. Quaint place feels like the real costa rica (not like the Marriott). Complimentary breakfast and full menu for other meals.... More

Even though my plane was very late Nelson,Casa Lima's proprietor was waiting just beyond customs as planned. We drove 1st to the B&B which is in a quiet residential neighborhood where I was shown to my colorful, clean and... More

The hotel is near the US Embassy with easy access to public bus transport to San Jose and travel destinations across Costa Rica. It has a beautiful interior garden inhabited by birds, fish, and Kiko, the orphaned white faced monkey. We stayed for 2 months on business and pleasure. The staff was wonderful and helped us plan the many trips... More

Casa Lima was wonderful. My group really found it to be our home away from home, and we were glad to return there after traveling around other parts of Costa Rica. Nelson and his family took great care of us in every sense, from the awesome food, anything we needed in our rooms, accommodating our big group, as well as... More

Casa Lima was both wonderfully inviting and quick to address any needs that arose for us. The breakfast was wonderful home made rolls, fresh fruit, fresh made juice, and amazing coffee. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone traveling to San Jose!!!

Owner came to pick us up from airport and take us to his little paradise. He said he had owned it for 7 years. When I found out how much work he and his family had done to the place himself I was amazed. Nelson goes a long ways beyond necessary to suit your needs. Especially if you are having... More

Casa Lima is a unique place to stay. I investigated other recommended places and found this to be the best value, and perhaps the most friendly and helpful of all. Will most likely will go back for future trips.
