My husband and I stayed at Casa Primo for one night prior to our trip to the Corcovado National Park and for three nights on our return. Elizabeth was an absolute gem of a host! Prior to our arrival, I had contacted her regarding transportation from the airport to her place since some reviewers had mentioned getting lost on the... More

Being in Elizabeth's home is like being in your own. She instantly makes you feel welcome and you soon are aware of what customer service should be. Always available but never intrusive, she will help with all the little issues that we all have when on the road. The home is spacious, wonderfully appointed and in an upscale, safe neighborhood...

After almost two weeks traveling to many locations throughout Costa Rica and staying various lodging, some not so nice, it was a complete joy to arrive at Casa Primo and be greeted by Elizabeth. The facility is immaculate. Our suite at the end of the hall closest to the pool was spacious and wonderfully decorated. We were treated like family... More

A lot of places advertise that they treat guests like family, but Casa Primo is the real deal. Elizabeth and her crew are absolutely some of the nicest, most helpful and accommodating people I've ever met while traveling. From the moment we arrived, everyone could not have been nicer or more genuinely interested in making us feel at home. Whether... More

This is a beautiful property on the out skirts of san Jose and has the advantage of being close to the airport. The owner and staff provided help and advise prior to our travel and during the course of our stay in Costa Rica, nothing was ever too much trouble. We stayed on arrival and again on departure from Costa... More

Pros: Staff was exemplary, breakfast was delicious, rooms were beautifully appointed and large, pool was clean and the perfect temperature, value was excellent. Cons: A little difficult to find. But then, so are a lot of things in Costa Rica. Our experience at Casa Primo began prior to our arrival, when I e-mailed to ask about the area and restaurant... More
