“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2011

I stayed for a week at the Hotel Tiquicia. I had stayed at a few other Hotels in Costa Rica and the staff at all of them were very nice, but at Hotel Tiquicia you are more then a guest, you are part of the family. Ellis and Calvin are 2 great guys who do their best to make you feel at home during your stay.
Saturday night we were treated to a wonderful Mackerel dinner with all the trimmings. It was a great way to start the night. After Calvin invited me to a Birthday party that went till the wee hours of the Morning.
If its your first trip to Costa Rica I highly suggest you consider Hotel Tiquicia. These guys will help you in anyway they can. If it be tours, travel destinations or any question or concern you may have during your stay. The guys are very knowledgeable and helpful. If you have been to Costa Rica before and haven’t checked it out I suggest you do. During my next trip I will be sure to stop by and say hi to my “extended family” in Costa Rica.

Hotel Tiquicia is an older hotel that gives you a feeling of a home. Bars resturantes are close. The breakfast was eggs, pancakes, and fruit was very good! The use of the kitchen makes a friendly area for conversations as well as cooking. It is a great value.

Hotel Tiquicia is located in downtown San Jose which is good because you get acces to everything by walk...Also you can ask anything about touristic attractions and ask for reservations...You only have to ask and they will reserve everything for you...

I knew instantly that I was in the hands of good people. I felt safe while I was at the hotel. I was amazed to find out that the bedspreads and pillow covers were laundered after each stay. I know where I will stay the next time I am in town. Calvin the owner should know that Ellis the manager does him proud. Ken
