We stayed at Grano de Oro for a total of three nights in May 2006. It is an excellent base in San Jose for the beginning and end of your trip in Costa Rica.
Rooms are clean and comfortable and have character. The hotel has a good restaurant-- the banana macademia nut pancakes at breakfast are fantastic!
What really makes this place is the staff. Everyone was kind and helpful. We arrived late the first night and they arranged for us to have a lovely dinner delivered to our room with wine and candels. There is no problem having laundry done, storing luggage, getting restaurant recommendations and taxis. On our last night we were upgraded to their best suite.
The hotel was completing major renovations/construction in May 2006. They are completely rennovating one wing and building a new restaurant and lobby.
We enjoyed our stay and would go back. Recommended
