The room was much more than I expected, and the service was even better. I was amazed the next morning to see how beautiful the property was. I can't say enough about the owners and I do plan on visiting them again.

This place is hidden, which is great. Kenneth was very nice, a good customer service is appreciated. The room looked very nice until I saw the ceiling of the bedroom and bath, both had mold, which is not good for your health, they should fix it, I am a local and that's not expensive. They served a nice breakfast, they called quesadilla breakfast, however I noticed that a very well prepared breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns and other things were served to other guests. That was not a surprise for me since we were locals and the other guests were americans, another one to my blacklist.

La Boruca is a beautiful hotel outside of San Jose. We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our trip. Beautiful rooms, delicious breakfasts. Ken and his family are amazing hosts. Ken helped us arrange transportation and tours to nearby attractions. When we were there they had a some baby brindle pugs that our kids fell in love with. Highly recommend La Boruca if you are in the area.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at La Boruca. It's a beautiful setting. The food was delicious. Friendly hosts. Ken is full of information and had great recommendations for local places to explore. When our car got stuck, he helped without hesitation. Went above and beyond in many areas. Highly recommend it.
