I made reservations with the Sabana B&B several months ago. It sounded terrific and in a perfect location in San Jose. Well, we arrived yesterday and the place is closed down, no signs and no people and locked gates. A neighbor said that it has been closed for 2 months. I have a gut feeling about the reason I did...

We had a rather large group and they handled us handsomely! It is a great location close to many restaurants or alternative transportation. It is family owned and run, the mother cooks the breakfast every morning for each person, and eating on the terrace is beautiful. This is a great place to stay in San Jose, CR! :0)

We enjoyed our stay here. The owners were genuine in their desire to provide a quality stay. The location was good for us because it is not a far taxi ride from the bus station and we needed a day to relax. The neighborhood is quiet and near the Sabana Park. Our hosts helped direct us to good restaurants in... More

My large group and myself including 11 people in all had an excellent stay. We ran into no problems, and when we left I kept hearing my friends talk about how friendly the staff was. I have no complaints. Everything was really nice in a good location. And the breakfest on the balcony while the sunrises was just beautiful. A... More

I wanted to stay with a Costa Rican family rather than in an anonymous international hotel, and the Hotel Sabana B&B turned out to be perfect. The managers José and his parents Gina and Ignacio are so much fun, and they know so much about Costa Rica. All their advice and bookings about where to go and stay in the... More

I have had the good fortune of staying at Hotel Sabana B&B during multiple business trips to the region starting in 2010. I would not trade this experience for that of a typical business style hotel because the amenities and comfort level are very similar. With Ignacio, Gina and their son Jose providing recommendations of local restaurants and being able... More

Ig and Gina are delightful, accommodating hosts. Their son Jose speaks excellent English. Gina loves to practice her English and was patient with me with my Spanish. I stayed there twice; both times the rooms were very clean and neat. Interesting shower but it works well. Gina takes pride in providing a "true Costa Rican" breakfast (excellent), which she cooks...

We stayed here twice and would not even consider going anywhere else! Ignacio and Gina make you feel right at home as does their son Jose. Food is fabulous and so fun having it winched up from the floor below. Lovely garden and Gina has every right to be so proud of it. When I went to print my boarding... More
