This beautiful boutique hotel surprised us when we found it in a less than beautiful area of Escazu. But once we parked our car underground and went up into the hotel, we left the city behind. It was like finding a secret garden in the middle of a busy street. There was an open courtyard where we had breakfast and a running stream that passed below our table in the restaurant so it felt like we were surrounded by nature. We had a suite on the top floor and everything was first class from the king sized beds with lovely linens and many pillows to the fluffy towels and cosy robes. The suite had a bed and full bathroom on the lower floor as well as a second 1/2 bath. The loft above held the other bed. The plan was well thought out to accommodate two couples , a family, or 2 business associates as in our case. There was a luxurious jacuzzi but be forewarned...you must fill it well in advance because it seemed to take forever and the water didn't seem hot enough. We gave up on it, too tired to wait. The hotel is tastefully done and feels more European than tropical. We had a welcome drink at the bar and the bartender, Mainor was a wonderful diplomat for the hotel. He was delightful and had someone bring out the salmon and tuna to show us the freshness and quality. He recommended wine and since it was a slow Sunday night, he turned into our very attentive waiter in the restaurant. We live in Costa Rica and service is sometimes lacking. Not in this hotel! Mainor was perfect. The restaurant was lovely and the food very good with a nice presentation. They had thrown a very successful Halloween part the night before, so they were short on a few items. I will have to return...I hear the scallops are to die for. The Beacon is certainly a hotel that I would recommend to my most discerning friends and family...a true delight
