Nelson made my stay here a delight. I was visiting a friend in the area and he was very helpful. There is a casual atmosphere, staff friendly and accommodating. The rooms had all I needed and the facing on to the courtyard meant waking up to a garden of delights. Bed was very comfortable. I felt well cared for in... More

We stayed here overnight and then flew out the next morning. Nelson and the staff were so helpful and welcoming! The food was great, especially the cuban dishes. Also, it was easy to find and close to the airport. Nelson printed out airport directions for us to return teh rental car. They were perfect! We really enjoyed our stay.

A quick cab ride from the San Jose Airport and just minutes away from the down town area. Casa Lima B &B made my first night in Costa Rica truly enjoyable. The staff was outstanding, Angie was an absolute treat. The inner courtyard was a whimsical tropical jungle, with a small stream burbling through the small jungle space, it was... More

After enjoying the wildlife in Costa Rica it was heartbreaking to see animal reduced to captivity in the most miserable conditions: iguanas in a tiny pen never seeing the sun, overcrowded cages cages of birds, fish in a pond so busy they could barely swim and poor Kiko, a neurotic monkey in a filthy cage. The owner told us not... More

We only stayed for a night but enjoyed our stay. The gardens were beautiful and Nelson was very welcoming. The room had everything we needed including a fridge & A/C, and the beds were comfy. The only downside was the room (number 2) backed onto the courtyard so we could here everyone having breakfast at 7am! Also we weren't made... More

I was impressed with the location of Casa Lima. Is situated in a quiet and safe neighborhood. It's well cared and there is internet wherever you are. Nelson, the owner, did not measured efforts to help with doubts and needs I had. All employees are very friendly and pleasant. I had fun giving fruit for Kiko the monkey every day.... More

Nelson, the owner arranged for airport pickup, and assisted with travel arrangements for the entire stay there. The jungle courtyard is as charming as ever, with Kiko, the monkey,continuing to...

I had a long stay at Casa Lima and was thrilled with my choice. The owner and his staff were extremely kind and the food was great. I recommend the plantains and spending some time with Kiko, the resident pet.

Casa Lima was a beautiful peaceful place to stay, located in a safe and neighborhood. Nelson, the owner, and his staff were very helpful and accommodating. I was in Costa Rica for dental work at DaVinci Dental. Dr. Delfin Barquaro is an amazing dentist. Him and his staff are all talented dentists with state of the art equipment. No matter... More
