Great little boutique hotel realistically 30 minutes from SJO with moderate traffic. Rooms are extremely clean and modern! Staff is extremely (Celeste) professional! Breakfast is typical, but the lovely lady (Martha) preparing breakfast is beyond typical and very sweet...not to mention that she is a great short order chef! One of the few places that will actually remind you of...

Excellent hotel with great amenities. Clean, modern and affordable outside of San Jose in Santa Ana. Walking distance to restaurants in a safe neighborhood. I highly recommend this hotel i you don't like to be in downtown San Jose.

My wife and I used to love staying at the hotel Candiles. However, it was sold to another company and while the rooms haven't changed much it is not what it used to be. It used to be that every aspect of the room was cared for and repaired. Now we found many scratches and abrasions on the furniture, not...

This was my first trip to Costa Rica, arriving in the Santa Ana area I was a bit hesitant as to what I would be getting (seeing the steel bars on all the doors and windows).
