Most holiday information tells you to spend as little time in San Jose, capital of Costa Rica, as possible. If you stay somewhere like Grano de Oro, however, that isn't the case. Welcoming atmosphere, hot tubs on a roof garden, inner courtyard with tiled walls for breakfast and meals, and a good place to start off for walking into the... More

Marco and his staff are just simply outstanding! Our suite had beautiful views of the city and mountains! We had every meal of the weekend at the hotel, with food that kept us coming back for more! Service is world class, wonderful wine list, with French cooking at it's best! Close to town as we walked both days to visit... More

We stayed three nights in the Grano de Oro, loved the hotel, the staff and most of all the restaurant! Lovely quaint rooms, ours opened on a small inner garden, fountain and well-maintained plants. After a day in San Jose, it was just great to get back to the hotel and have a cocktail in the spectacular restaurant; yet another... More

Service was great, hotel was fun and nice. The only downside is that you could hear everything on the other side of your room walls. The restaurant is good, but a bit overpriced for dinner for what you get, in my opinion. The service is great though.

This was an absolutely perfect start to our honeymoon in Costa Rica! Staff were helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble! We even got a free upgrade and lovely note from the manager. Well worth the money! The roof top jacuzzi is also recommend!

My wife and family (three children, ages 20, 26 and 28) returned to Costa Rica for two weeks for a second time to explore the country and visit with other friends who were also visiting. We used the Hotel Grano de Oro as a base, staying one night on arrival from the United States, staying again for one night a... More

This was the third time I have stayed at Grano De Oro and each time it had been at the end of my stay in Costa Rica. I am never disappointed at this hotel. The hotel is beautiful and clean and the staff is amazing and helpful. The hotel restaurant is one of the best in Costa Rica so no... More

My husband, two teenage sons and I stayed here for four nights on the last leg of a two week tour through Costa Rica. The hotel room was the CLEANEST room I had ever stayed in. We have stayed in many a five star luxury hotel in places all around the world and this room topped them all in cleanliness.... More

We needed to stay one night in San Jose before flying home, and this property was recommended in lieu of a Hampton Inn. We LOVED it, from the service to the linens to the restaurant and bar, and the location. We booked a suite, our party was one couple and a single, and we had all the privacy but shared... More

We stayed in a first floor room that was entered through a garden courtyard. It was a nice, simple room. Internet worked well, belhops were prompt and courteous, the front desk was really nice. Some people staying above us were incredibly loud and obnoxious, and the hotel staff did what they could, including comping our lunch. There was parking, umbrellas,... More
