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.

Pleasantly surprised with Hotel Posada Grande for our first night in Costa Rica. Beautiful grounds, great view, friendly staff and delicious breakfast. Close to the airport. Great value for the price!

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

We stayed here our first night in Costa Rica. This hotel is very difficult to find without a GPS, navigating from San Jose CR. With that being written, this hotel is a hidden gem in hills, and overlooks San Jose CR. It is remote, and private, yet only a mile from the freeway. The rooms are very nice and spacious,... More

This is the hotel we randomly chose to stay at after arriving at the airport pretty late at night. Nearby, easy to find, and pretty adorable. They have a 24 hour bar (the receptionist will happily make you a drink) and their breakfast is pretty good. Our only complaint was that the room was a bit hot, with no ceiling... More

This place deserves more than 5 stars! We spent our entire week vacation at the Hotel Posada Canal Grande and couldn't have had a nicer experience. The location is up in the foothills, with a great view over looking the central valley. The entire staff was wonderful, the rooms were spotless, and we were treated like family. Can't wait to...
