Not far from the airport, this delightful and peaceful place is built on hillside overlooking Alajuela and in what was previously a coffee plantation. The owners are very ecologically minded and are restoring the area into lovely exotic gardens, enticing back the local birds. Rooms and furnishings and verandah fine, quirky but lovely artwork on the walls, arty but not too comfortable furniture! I'm for all things ecological, but not to the point of making it very difficult if not impossible to get wifi connection! The restaurant was ok, but not inspiring, breakfast disappointing given the room price - quite insulting to have to pay extra to get decent fried eggs! Service fine and friendly staff though....
