Service was exceptional. From the front desk to the room attendants....these people are the stars of this hotel. Lovely view from our balcony. Mini bar was impossible to open, which was frustrating but not enough to spoil our stay.

We debated at length whether to stopover in San Jose, at all, on our way to our Costa Rican adventure. Looking back, I’m glad we decided to stay a couple of days. I stumbled across Hotel Alta Las Palomas online, after some research. It looked very stylish and I was particularly taken by its mountain views. It was also very... More

Excellent service. Beautiful views. Delicious restaurant. We arrived late but were greeted graciously and settled quickly. The next morning we awoke to a panoramic view of San Jose & had a delicious breakfast with excellent service. The staff couldn't have been nicer.

Amazing hotel and great service ! The hotel was just beautiful- I checked the website and the hotel looked nice - but it is much better once you are there. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant, which was fabulous but that night we were treated to a Flamenco troupe ... With guitarist and dancers - just set the tone... More

I'll start by saying this is my favorite hotel anywhere. This was my third visit in 5 years and it did not disappoint. From the time our driver pulled up and we were greeted by the bellman, to our delicious welcome drink at check-in, we were pampered and made to feel right at home. We took advantage of an online...

Can't say enough about this hotel. Beautiful scenic views and world class staff!!! The moment we stepped in there, the staff were so nice and so accommodating. The convenience of the restaurant and bar made it even more special. They scheduled all of our excursions which made it so easy to go and do day trips. Would highly recommend!! Thank... More

Lovely boutique hotel, situated high above the noise of the city yet close to great shopping at the Escazu Multiplaza. Stylish decor, great rooms, L'Occitane toiletries and comfortable beds WITH a.c., if you so desire. We found the cooler Central Valley temperatures very pleasant. A neighbor's barking dog disturbed us initially, but once contacted the front desk handled the issue... More

We really enjoyed our one night here before flying home. Hotel is beautifully decorated with the common areas being, in my mind, a mix of boutique/Hogwarts/colonial styles! Good size pool and lovely food in restaurant; just slow service. Friendly reception staff and very friendly manager. Their own coffee available free all the time in lounge area.
