Zamora Estate Hotel is a lovely old home in a beautiful setting. Roman and Anna are incredible hosts--friendly and knowledgeable. The breakfasts are superb and Anna is an outstanding cook if you eat any other meals there. Zamora is particularly a great place for those who are interested in natural history and/or birding. Very nice pool, vineyards, and short but...

The grounds of Zamora Estate are fabulous. The small lake, estuary, swimming pool and vineyard are beautiful. But, you must check out the restaurant, Cafe Lago with a view of the estuary. The food is an eclectic fusion of international and Costa Rica dishes. Sunset is breathtaking as the birds populate the estuary at this time. A great place for...

The Zamora Estate Hotel is conveniently just a short trip from the international airport. I started and ended my Costa Rican adventure at Zamora spending three nights there at the begining of my vacation and 2 nights at the end. The grounds are stunning with lots of wildlife. The rooms are spacious and charming, and beautifully decorated with local wood...

This was our first stop on our Costa Rican second honeymoon. Very private bungalow, nicely appointed, large bathroom, and huge shower. Grounds are beautiful, trails throughout, with the beginings of a vineyard on the back of the property. Food was absolutely delicious! I had the pan seared snook, it melted in my mouth! Very personal staff and owner. Will definately...

We stayed for just one night at the end of our 2 week holiday, but wished we could have stayed much longer. Zamora Estate is truly an oasis, a tranquil and luxurious place just a short distance from downtown San Jose, and just 20 minutes from the airport. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable, and have great rustic charm, overlooking ponds...

We just had dinner at Zamora estate and stayed the night and it was fabulous. If you are looking to get away from the regular corporate hotels and looking for a real Costa Rican stay with comfort this place should be top of your list. Ana and Roman will take great care of you and you feel like house guests...

We loved our few days at Zamora - really good 5 star accommodation at reasonable prices and Roman and Ana could not have been more helpful. Roman arranged car rental from the Hotel and saved us a lot of hassle (for a more reasonable price than we had been quoted online). They could not have been more helpful and it...

We chose Zamora Estates for our last night of our Costa Rica vacation because it looked like a peaceful, convenient and comfortable place to spend the night before a long day of travel home. Unfortunately, it was anything but peaceful the night we were there because, unbeknownst to us, the estate had booked a wedding with 108 guests and a...

“I believe there are only 3 or 4 wooden cabins, secluded and rustic charm. Cabins overlook the lake and estuary. It's an escape in the middle of town.Tranquility amongst the hustle and bustle.”
