Beautiful place, the swimming pool was clean and fresh, the breakfast very good and the staff very nice. We had to wait half an hour for our room but it was no big deal, we were offered a nice juice to chill by the pool in the meantime. It is so cosy and romantic, especially the outside area. A delight.

Only stayed here one night for my last night in Costa Rica. The room was large and comfortable, no ac but didn't really need it. Old colonial style place, grounds maintained quite well, has a pool that looked enticing but never got in. Pretty view from the patio, breakfast was plenty and tasty typical Tico style, would totally stay here... More

So I stayed here for two nights and it is absolutely wonderful! The staff is attentive and the atmosphere is relaxing. Just an FYI though, the mattress we had was extremely firm. I am not one for a firm mattress but I didn't wake up feeling like I got hit by a bus so I guess it wasn't all that... More

We are more than glad that you had a great stay, like always our staff is willing to make from your stay the most enjoyable possible. It is very like mattresses are depend on the taste of the beholder, some like firm some do not. We are conveniently located not far from San Jose down town and the international Airport.... More

We spent one night here prior to a return flight to Europe. And wished we'd stayed longer. The hotel is a delight - good rooms, lovely garden, excellent terrace for reading and eating. And for our visit, exceptional staff. Our advice - book and stay longer than we did and you'll be amazed.

I booked this room through Expedia. The staff, miss Elizabeth was extremely helpful. She arranged a taxi to pick me up and upon my arrival gave me numerous suggestions about where and what to do in Costa Rica. Elizabeth helped me plan a trip to Drakes Bay in the south the day I arrived at her hotel. She made calls... More

Absolutely loved this place. It's a bit off the tourist track in a beautiful suburb of San Jose. The property and staff were fantastic. If, like us, you like a smallish and more personable place that is somewhere between a hotel, a B&B, and a classy hostel, then this is a great find. The property and view are beautiful! The... More

This small hotel is located out of San Jose but relatively close to the airport. Beautiful surrounding so take the time to walk around particularly if the birds wake you up early in the morning. When making a reservation at this hotel, be precise about the number of people who will stay in, particularly children, in order to avoid any... More
