Its true that the walls may be a little thin here but I was more worried that we would make too much noise and bother someone else. Hope we didn't. I didn't hear anything that kept me up or bothered me and enjoyed the vintage...More

This is one of the greatest reviews we have ever read. You described exactly the experience we work everyday to give to our clients!
We're very happy to know that you liked it, lived it and enjoyed it.
Thank you very much!
Horrible room (30) right next to reception and the ice machine so we could hear giggling loud tourists fill their jugs with ice at all hours of the night.
The mattress was extremely uncomfortable, it sort of dipped in the middle, so our quality of...More

We made a mistake by booking the standard room at the apartment. (Photos on their website can be confusing!)
Checked in smoothly, was shown to the soulless apartment block opposite, room was small, dark and uncomfortable. We went back and spoke to the staff and...More

Charming place. Six little houses of thirties with vintage furniture. Many little places to stay. Very good breakfast in a terrace surrounded by a tropical garden.
You feel like to be a character of a Frida Calo's picture.

We found it better not to keep changing currency and incurring any charges/commission each time. We did ask once at the hotel but we were told they couldn't and found it easier just to work out what we might need and draw it from a cash machine. Dollars were fine almost everywhere though we ended up using colones mostly and found it easier. If you are travelling round as we did and may get to areas without a cash machine I'd suggest a little online research to make sure you take enough cash, down near Drake Bay for example we needed enough cash when there were no ATMs and we couldn't use a card. The San Jose area was just the opposite. Furthest trip we did from there was to Catarata del Toro which was amazing and still not well on the tourist trail but we would have been ok with colones or dollars there too. We had a few colones left at the end and donated them so not sure about changing and our home currency is the UK £ so the dollars were put to one side for future trips.
The temperatures are very reasonable. As a rule, I think of the central valley area as having a pretty perfect range. A high of 86 and a low of 68. Now...the temps do vary a bit from that from time to time, but that's... More
The temperatures are very reasonable. As a rule, I think of the central valley area as having a pretty perfect range. A high of 86 and a low of 68. Now...the temps do vary a bit from that from time to time, but that's pretty close to their year-round temps. July will be the rainy season, so the night time temps may feel cooler than you expect because there will be some moisture in the air. You may want a light jacket or some layering. There will most likely be some rain at some point, so a raincoat/umbrella would be good to have when you're out. The temperature of the rooms has always been comfortable for me, and have never needed air conditioning for a second.
