I have been staying at the Hotel Bougainvillea for 17 years now, and have to say that my most recent stay (March 2013) just reinforced why I keep coming back. I return to Costa Rica almost every year to visit with family and friends, and always stay at the Bougainvillea. The gardens are the big wow factor, but not the only reason I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. The staff greets and treats me like family, and always makes a point of welcoming me back. The rooms are always clean and the beds are comfortable. The views from the windows and balconies can't be beat. The food is always good, if not excellent. The pool area is beautiful, and offers a sauna and exercise room. The gardens are where I spend my extra time, since they're never quite the same from year to year. It is probably because of the tranquility of the gardens that the Bougainvillea guests tend to be quieter and calmer. Since I come to Costa Rica for R&R, I appreciate the peaceful atmosphere. I like being away from the noise of San Jose, yet minutes away from the highway so I can be in San Jose within 15 minutes most of the time. Yes, traffic in San Jose is increasingly terrible, but by using back roads, one can get to most any place in the central valley within an hour. It's no different from large cities in the US--timing is everything . I do wish the regular rooms had refrigerators--only the junior suites currently do. I am a middle aged woman and feel safe and comfortable at the Bougainvillea, even when I travel alone. There are other beautiful places to stay in Costa Rica, but none that I know of can compare with the Bougainvillea.
