escazu area

Hi! I have been to CR 3 times. I am intending on an extended stay in the valley (2-3 months) this winter. Can somebody explain the 3 different areas of Escazu? We like the convenience of walking to restaurants, (American chains are blah) and"downtown" amenenities. Further out, we checked out Atenas and Grecia and decided that it was too sleepy. I have been researching rentals on the net but it is too soon and the published rates are too high.I NEED A POOL!! Anybody out there with alternatives?. Any insight would be appreciated!!! Thanks.

While staying @ The Marrriott in San Jose, we took a taxi to Escazu, about 25 minutes and ate at a great restaurant, Inka Grill. It's Peruvian. Not touristy at all, great food and reasonably priced. Highly recommend it.
