We missed a flight at the San Jose airport and needed to find a place to stay on short notice. I found Hotel Posada Canal Grande online and quickly booked a room with zero expectations. Upon arrival, we were so pleasantly surprised that we actually wished we could stay longer! The hotel is beautiful and the staff is absolutely charming.... More

This is one of my favorite places to stay in the San Jose area. It's way off the beaten path in Santa Ana, yet close to everything we go to San Jose for. I love the feel of the place, it's very "tranquilo" as they say here. The owner has brought in so much furniture from exotic places, it's wonderful... More

I just finished a one month visit to Costa Rica, and I stayed at the Hotel Posada Canal Grande in Piedades de Santa Ana the whole time.

Hotel Posada Canal Grande is a remarkable place not for VIPs though. However I really enjoyed it there because it gives you the feel of a typical Costa Rican culture. There are no air conditioners but the windows are made in such a way that the air from the surrounding mountains keeps the place cool as if from an air... More

I stayed here for just one night at an exceptionally low rate....the quality truly surprised me given what I paid. This hotel is very quaint and comfortable - if I'm back in Santa Ana I will surely look to stay here.
