Left my ipad in my room... not in the safe (of course not) and checked out. Flew home to Nosara. Freaked out and called hotel. Liza went to the room I had (#14... very nice) found ipad, wrapped it, took it to Nature Air, and had it flown to Nosara the next day. No charge. Thank you Liza. Thank you... More

We were surprisingly pleased when we arrived at Casa Roland. I say surprised because it was recommended by our taxi driver so we wern't sure what we were going to get and from the outside it didn't look like much. But the moment we walked through the entrance we were in aww. The reception was great and the staff also... More

Let me say from the beginning that my wife and I are Spanish-speakers, lived in San Jose in the 70's and have spent MUCH time in this beautiful city. San Jose is like a second home. However, tourism in Costa Rica has become a major industry since our time there many years ago, and I make no pretense of being... More

When describing my stay at this hotel, I couldn't help but describe it as a tree house as the structure had lush vegetation and was very cozy. You don't feel like you're staying in a hotel but rather a friend's cottage and there are surprises behind every corner. There is a lot of interesting art on display throughout the property... More

We stayed here one night because we had an early morning flight to Tortuguero from Pavas airport. If you are looking for something just for that purpose this hotel is perfectly adequate and reasonable in price. It was a 6 or 7 minute drive to Pavas airport. The hotel is really interesting, it obviously caters to businessmen who are in... More

Interesting and beautiful art. Located in a quiet area and it takes about 20 minutes by taxi to the city center. Friendly staff and good breakfast!

It was not what I had expected. We were on the third floor (walk-up) in very interesting room with very interesting artwork. There were two TV sets with one set up to only play CDs or VHS tapes. It is pretty close to the US Embassy and that's why we chose it. By Costa Rican standards it was overpriced. HOWEVER,... More

We had to stay at Casa Roland when our flight to Puerto Jiminez was cancelled due to bad weather. It is located quite close to the Pavas (Tobias Bolanos) Airport, so it was very convenient place to stay in time for an early morning flight. The staff was nice, the inn was nicely decorated, and it's located in a pretty... More

My son and I discovered this wonderful hotel quite by chance. We randomly chose it from a list of hotels on our GPS. What a god send. This is a beautiful, classy hotel and was wonderful break from the crazy traffic and rain we experienced in San Jose. It is a beautiful facility with a nice, helpful bilingual staff. The... More
