We stayed at Hotel B for five nights. Hotel was on lovely grounds, not far from the airport or San Jose; good food, inviting pool and a caring staff. Miguel, a long-time hotel employee, had free time and took us on some great, day-long excursions. He was a well-informed and interesting guide and we learned a lot about life in...

We had two seperate positioning nights here at the beginning and end of our tour. We were not disappointed. It's a convenient location for both the airport and if you're driving in from the east in which case you don't have to tackle the city centre. There is plenty of parking here too so again, if you have a car...

Our 3-generation family of 11 thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay. We loved the huge garden with its different spaces, the pool, the library where the kids played games during cocktail hour. Rooms were large, airy, fresh and clean. Good dining room with great breakfasts. The staff at the desk and in the dining room were excellent: they were friendly,...

I chose Hotel Bougainvillea as a local "home base" for its proximity to San Rafael de Heredia, where family lives. Pros: It was great for our large, multi-family group. The grounds are well maintained and very manicured, being much more open that most of the landscaping you'll find in Costa Rica. Our whole group liked it, from the teenagers to...

The gardens are a delight, our rooms were comfortable, and the service was friendly. It was the perfect way to begin our travels in Costa Rica, after a long trip from the US. We stayed here two nights.

We stayed here for two nights after arriving in San Jose airport (after about 24hr travel from home in the UK). It was just a lovely place to relax - we spent a day chasing butterflies in the garden and relaxing by the pool. A little oasis - so glad we opted to stay here rather than in downtown San...

Huge, beautiful garden, lovely & very helpful staff and delicious food served at all hours. A great night's sleep at a very affordable price. Although this hotel is a bit out of the way, it is well worth the taxi ride.
