A nice and peaceful place if you want to start and/or end your vacation. The rooms are clean and the mattresses are nice! Breakfast consists of bread, cereals, coffee/tea, fruits, orange juice and all types of toppings for the bread. There is a basketball court where children can play and the pool is located in the centre of this hotel.... More

I stayed at the Dos Palmas Country Inn La Garita for one night in August 2016 with my husband and two boys, ten and almost two years old. It was the final night of our tour of Costa Rica before our flight home. The owners, Flor and Peter were very friendly and helpful. Every request we had was met swiftly... More

I got in touch with Peter through a friend of mine and he has been a great help while planning my last two trips to Costa Rica (August 2015 and July 2016). Apart from having a great hotel where you can stay comfortably after arriving from your long flight, Peter can also help you with arranging a rental car and... More

In June and July we stayed here for 6 nights. We chose for this hotel because we’ve read good reviews online and we’ve met people that stayed here too. Because we rented a car for our holiday, Dos Palmas was a good start and ending point. The owner helped us by renting a car from a good company named Thrifty.... More

We stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica, because it was close to the airport. The hotel is nice, but nothing special. The rooms were ok, although we had a lot of mosquitos in the room because there was a big opening next to the door (which makes the screens on the windows pretty useless). Nevertheless we slept...

After what seemed to be an endless flight from Brussels to San José (with a mini snowstorm in Newark causing extra hours of delay) it felt good to be welcomed by Peter and his staff in this secluded oasis where drinks by the pool were about the only activity our travel group could still embark upon...

After a long flight from Europe, we were met by the hotel's driver and brought to this delightful, quiet hotel where we "chilled out" for 36 hours. Our room was large and airy, there was a swimming pool right outside our door, set in a lovely garden. Breakfast was simple but tasty - fresh fruit etc. Peter, Floor and their... More

We enjoyed the stay and Peter and family were very helpful. We stayed here on both ends of our travel to a remote part of Costa Rica. It may not have been optimal for us in that we arrived very late on our entry into Costa Rica, and when we left, we had to depart extremely early. Travel was arranged... More

We started and ended our holiday at Dos Palmas. It is very convenient, as owner Peter and support staff (Nathalie, Anna) are very knowledgeable on Costa Rica and are doing their utmost to help you out. We arranged our rented car via Peter (Thrifty) and were also happy with Thrifty's service. The rooms themselves are clean and spacious. The pool... More
