We needed a place near San José and were happy that it was Los Candiles!! Nice hotel and lovely people. Only 20 minutes from the airport and nice restaurants and a supermarket and ATM nearby. Delicious breakfast, with a very nice lady making fresh juices and preparing your eggs!

Check your map online..count the streets.
, so you can find this hotel. Not far from an excellent Mas y Menos .Nice staff. Very clean.
breakfast near the pool is excellent but I would advise getting rid of the sugery cereals and offering a non-sugered muesli, as well as a non-sugered yogurt.we met several people who commented on the overly sweet food. The coffee here was especially good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on ground level.

We stayed here the night before flying home to be close to the airport. The hotel was an excellent value, very comfortable and clean. Nice bathroom with a good hot shower and the service was great. My complaint is that it was extremely hard to find. We searched for 2 hrs (during rush hr) before we found it. It is on a dark side street with no sign, just the name written on the door. Very stressful driving around the city with no street names. Also it was not close to the airport (about a 40 min drive). Next time, for the purpose of being close to the airport, I would not choose this
hotel.
However, if you're looking for a nice place to stay in Santa Ana and you can find it, you won't be disappointed.

Dear Guest,

thanks for your time to give us your opinion about your stay, we regret that it has been difficult to find our hotel, we are pleased that our facilities were to your liking. The international airport is 20 minutes away, but the route to get there is a bit complicated or the other option is to take Highway 27 to San Jose and then the Inter-American Highway to the Airport.

We look forward to serving you again in the near future.

It's a really nice hotel with a great staff. Hotel is cutely designed and very clean. It includes breakfast which is a nice touch. Only real issue is the location. It's really hard to find and there's nothing around it. Overall I would recommend this place, as long as you have a car & a navigation system to find this joint

I spent 2 nights in this sweet hotel and couldn't believe how quiet and peaceful it was. The staff is amazingly helpful and friendly with everything I needed. Breakfast is diverse and fresh, and my room (a suite) was quite clean and comfortable.

Excellent stay of 2 mos. (Sept and Oct. 2013). Breakfast was well prepared on a daily basis. The staff were great, helpful in all respects. I was in a family suite. My friend and I each had a bedroom with bath with a living room/kitchenette in the middle. We had a private outside patio, with table and chairs. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The front desk staff would call for tour information and then book the tours for me, they would place my orders for take-out and call for taxis and then tell the driver where I wanted to go. The housekeepers kept our rooms spotless and helped us when we needed help with other things and transported our laundry back and forth. Los Candiles is reasonably close to San Jose with good access to shopping and various sight seeing attractions. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to any one who is on a limited budget. It's close to a grocery store and with a little ingenuity you can avoid eating all of your lunchs and dinners out, a definite cost savings you can use for other things. My stay couldn't have been better!!! My friend was with me for Sept, and my sister and daughter were with me for most of Oct. They too, were very pleased with this Hotel.

Room Tip: There is no Fitness center or spa but I couldn't figure out how to not mark those two areas. I...
