We were in a bad mood when we arrived as the plane from Toronto was very late and we couldn't find the Luisiana for quite some time, so we were not the best of guests initially! However the owners put us at ease and the quality of the accomodation won us over. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept on anywhere and the quality of the furnishings, the art and the linens was first class The bathroom was very fashionable and the quality of construction faultless.
The Owner and his wife were very friendly. Our only criticisms were the instructions on how to get to the hotel which is not easy to find, despite some signage and confusing instructions on the website. The instructions make sense when you get there but I would suggest some improvement be made. As anyone who has driven in Costa Rica knows, there is a national obsession of not having accurate maps, street signs, numbers or directions, as well as no street addresses, all of which tax the non-Ticos patience! The other is that the hotel, being very new, lacked a few amenities which it probably should have. These issues should be resolved some time in the future when phase 2 is constructed. The breakfast was very good and satisfying.
The situation is very quiet, being located up a quiet residential street not far from Old Santa Ana Centro. It is recommended as a quiet very well appointed boutique hotel which is also very good value. I would suggest booking on their website as you can choose your room and get a better price than booking on expedia.
Despite our initial bad temper we had no hesitation in deciding to stay there for the last night of our holiday for a guaranteed good night's sleep and relaxation.
