Unusual hotel in a grand style with comfortable old leather furniture and individual styling ( see photos). A cut above nearly all options in San Jose, set high up on the hill with a view over part of the city. The bedrooms are comfortable and the showers excellent. Each room has its own small terrace to sit out on and enjoy the view. The dining room is in a grand style and you will feel more comfortable to dress up a bit to be there. Dinner itself was pretty good. The pool area itself is very nice with good sun loungers.

Hotel's Favorite
Warmly greeted and directed up to the 4th floor. We had a standard room but it was huge with a big balcony and large bathroom. It was eclectically decorated but comfortable. Good quality toiletries and all clean. We were told we could have a complimentary drink in the bar - a nice touch. We weren’t hungry enough to eat dinner but did go down to the bar/dining room. The food looked excellent, as was the service. Breakfast was good quality and sophisticated and all served professionally. There is a pool and loungers and a pretty garden. The hotel is on several levels on the hillside and although there is an elevator, there are lots of steps. Airport - our agent booked this hotel for us and we thought it was going to be reasonably close to the airport. However, it is a long drive from the airport - it took almost an hour upon arrival, and almost 45 minutes the following morning, so do bear this in mind.

Dear yorkspuds, thank you for staying at Hotel Alta Las Palomas, and for taking the time to write such a great review of our property. We appreciate all your great comments. The hotel is located very close to Highway 27 which is the direct link to the airport, but it is not in a direct straight line, so we always advise for at least 45 minutes to get to and from there. We hope you come back to Costa Rica and to stay with us very soon again. Best regards, Juanita Miranda, General Manager

We stayed at this hotel for one night, at the start of our trip to Costa Rica, and are very glad that we chose it. The hotel was less than half an hour's drive from the airport, but was in a lovely setting, overlooking San Jose. Room 44 was excellent, spacious, spotlessly clean, very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was very good, with a good range, and everything cooked to order. At breakfast we were spoken to by somebody who is an owner of the hotel (one of several, perhaps?) and he was extremely nice to us. When we eventually go back to Costa Rica, we will undoubtedly use this a a base for the start, or end of our trip.

I'd booked one night at Alta Las Palomas before my departure from SJO at the end of a 3 week trip in Costa Rica, but on the recommendation of someone I met during my trip I changed my plans and made it two nights, and I'm so glad I did. At the end of a fantastic but very hectic trip staying in lodges and guesthouses across the country, it was a dream to spend two days before my international flight in such a beautiful hotel, with fantastic service. Breakfast and dinner with both wonderful, and the pool area was a gorgeous place to relax with a book. Being so close to the airport, I would definitely recommend this hotel to start or end a trip in Costa Rica, and I hope to be back.
