I spent a week at this property in June of 2014. It's worthy of a five star review, but I have a couple of small suggestions for the owners.
The property is in a great location in Escazu. If you're an American visiting San Jose for the first time, I'd recommend this area if you want to feel as close to home as possible. The property sits behind a manned gate, but the area is very safe and you would feel comfortable walking around at night, or at least we did. We had a car & had a choice of dozens of restaurants within a 5 minute drive (unless there's traffic, then 5 = 15).
We had a two bedroom apartment, it's nicely furnished with everything you need. It's not the most quiet location, it's on a street and there were sounds of dogs barking and some traffic, but it didn't bother us much.
The staff was very friendly, arranged a cab for me a couple of times when I didn't want to drive and the breakfast was very nice.
Just a few suggestions or things that you may want to know:
-the beds were as hard as anything I've ever slept on. We were in the handicap accessible room, so it may have been related to this, I am not sure.
-the fitness center has really, really old equipment, like army surplus old stuff. And I mean civil war era. It was a nice little room, but some new treadmills and dumbells would be a nice upgrade.
-my bedroom was lacking in electrical outlets, one was taken by the wi-fi and the other for a lamp, so I had to choose between my charger, my lamp or the alarm clock.
Nothing more than minor inconveniences, but just my $0.02.
Thanks for a great stay, I'll be back!
