“3 cheers for dental tourism”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I am a Dental Hygienist from New Mexico and I owned my own Holistic dental hygiene practice there for 10 years. I have been promoting Dental Tourism to Costa Rica for the past 3 years and have had many clients stay at the Costa Verde Inn and for a $60. a night room, it is clean, friendly, speaks English, has a tour bus and airport shuttle service for $30. ( this is the same as you would pay a cab, but the driver is there with your name on a sign and knows where he is going) The girls that cook breakfast are wonderfully friendly and good cooks. The rooms are clean but simple and the pool is very inviting especially during the dry season, a refreshing way to escape the heat.
I work with 3 dentists in the San Jose area and I know quite a few good restuarants in this area as well. I personally spend most of my time at the beach when I am not in Escazu/San Jose with a client. Pura Vida - Pure Life

Room Tip: If you are into paying a little more, $75. per night you can get a 1 bedroom apartment with an aweso...

My husband and I stayed at Costa Verde Inn from April 8-16.
Our room was huge, had its own kitchen with fridge and microwave and everything you need.
Staff is really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was made fresh for us every morning and was delicious. I would highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: there are also rooms with a patio, I would like one of those next time.

We chose this place on the basis of Trip Advisor recommendations, but did not find it to be anywhere near as good as we expected from reading other reviews. The rooms have multiple beds, as in a hostel. There were many insects in both our rooms, including a cockroach. It made us worry about what we might be bringing back into the US in our clothes and suitcases. We did find bugs in our suitcases. The breakfast was OK - cold eggs (they had been sitting out for quite a while) and rice and beans with some fruit. Coffee, but no tea for those of us who are tea drinkers. The hot tub could, at best, hold two very friendly people. It probably holds the record for the smallest hot tub. It is within walking distance of the town center, as advertised, but what they don't tell you is that the town center is not where the restaurants are. The restaurants are not at all within walking distance (other than Snoopy's Bar which we did not investigate).

Nice clean room, very spacious and comfortable. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and is a nice quiet setting considering it's closeness to San Jose. Fantastic breakfast and wonderfully helpful staff that speak both Spanish and English. Will definitely return! A bit difficult to locate, but well worth finding!

Room Tip: Unit 15 has a spectacular night view of the city with a gorgeous little private balcony! It is on th...

The people were very friendly and helpful. They spoke english and spanish. The room are clean and very comfortable. The rooms are among tall beautiful trees and plants. There is no air-conditioning. You get a nice breeze by opening the windows and turning on the fans. You will hear and see beautiful birds when you get up in the morning. The breakfasts were prepared to our taste and they were delicious. A fabulous place.

Room Tip: For a family of 4 the front rooms across from the breakfast lounge are very nice. Get up in time fo...

NIce location, clean rooms, great breakfast, nice staff, funky rooms, but clean and restful. Would definitely stay there again. Met some nice folks at breakfast. Taxis pick you up right in front and take you anywhere. Escazu is a neat village within walking distance. Not for the five star crowd, but most people would love this place. Jose and Arturo are great at helping guests get things done.

Got the name of this hotel off a road map, great find. On the edge of town but very secluded. The rooms were large and comfortable. Nice pool and eating area. Local dentist must recommend this place as three were there from us to see the dentist. Very helpful and nice staff. About 8 to 10 blocks to village square and many shops and restaurants. Nice views too.

Room Tip: All rooms looked good from our stay.
