This boutique hotel ranks up with the tops of my travel experiences. The staff was incredible and every opportunity to make our visit more enjoyable was extended to my traveling party. That includes the restaurant and bar. Each bite of food was better than the next. To imagine a life saver amount of mint ice cream to cleanse my pallet... More

I had the pleasure of spending two nights at this great hotel. Staff was incredibly attentive and helpful. They helped me arrange a pedicure, dinner reservations, shuttle, everything. My room was beautiful and extremely clean. The restaurant was the best part.... Food was incredibly amazing. The salmon was the best I have ever had. I would definitely return!!

We stayed here our first night in Costa Rica. The hotel has so much charming character of years gone by. The staff was more than accommodating. We missed our connecting flight from Atlanta and contacted the hotel regarding my later arrival. When I got to my room, there was a small fruit platter and a warm note wishing me a... More

I recently went back to San Jose to complete some dental work. I chose Grano de Oro because of its close proximity to my dentist. Upon my arrival I immediately felt at home in this former luxury tropical mansion turned hotel. I booked the standard room (which is very nice), but was upgraded to the deluxe patio room which was...

We spent the first night of our honeymoon in this great classy hotel in the center of San Jose after landing from our long 11 hour flight. We were greeted with a nice welcome drink a small surprise in our room because it was a special trip for us which was very kind of the hotel. All the staff were... More

I wasn't familiar with San Jose and wanted to stay in a well located hotel where we could go walking to restaurants, cafes, clubs, etc. based on the reviews I booked this hotel. However, if someone reads this review, and has the same interest I did, please don't stay here. Location is terrible. I think a hotel in Escazu is... More

We spent a total of three nights at the hotel during a seven day trip. The hotel and restaurant are excellent , as is the staff. The down side is the location within the city. The traffic noise level is very high with sirens and motorcycles all night long. Do not get a room facing the street! There isn't much... More

We only stopped for one night following our arrival in San Jose as we were moving on, however we would love to have stayed for longer. The hotel was beautiful and everywhere was spotlessly clean. The dining room was fantastic and the food (well, breakfast at least) was also very good. Staff were friendly as well.

This hotel is so beautiful. It truly feels like an oasis in the city. Grano de Oro has an old plantation feel with lush, tropical greenery and fountains in the courtyards.The hotel is pristinely clean and the decor is simple and beautiful. I enjoyed the touches of fresh juice upon arrival and the fact that beverages and snacks in the... More
