I am posting this review now. I will post a further review when I get home and attach photos. This room is the finest I have stayed in while I have been in Central America this month. It is located in Escazu overlooking San Jose. Escazu is known as "Little America" because of the shopping, number of foreign residents and embassies. In fact this hotel was once part of the British Embassy. We are in the Presidential Suite and are stunned at the opulance versus the price. Our pictures can not hope to show the richness of the facility, but we will post soon....I have to get back to my wine on our deck overlooking the city.
PS. Kata, the manager speaks excellent english and has been extremely helpful and accommodating.

After spending 3months in C.R., finding The Ringle Resort was like a gift! The resort is outstanding. We found Ed Ringle and staff to be embarassingly helpful, making sure all our needs were met, and then some. Occasionally, not only informing us of the" hot spots" but actually taking us there. This resort is truly delightful and on returning to C.R, we will always stay at The Ringle Resort! The resort is simply delightful.

For a perfect visit to San José (business and private) go to the Ringle Resort! It is a beautiful place, very comfortable rooms, quiet surrounding and a beautiful view on the city. It is only 15 minutes away from the airport in the nicest part of the city, Escazu. Best of all is the service level offered by the owner Ed and his staff at Ringle Resort. They helped us with everything we needed to ensure a pleasant stay; including tips for dinner, car rental and others. The owner, Ed Ringle, was even so nice to bring me back a mobile phone I forgot in the hotel, during his trip to the Netherlands! Where else would you get international home service...?!
Ed, Katia: thank you so much for your great service and warm welcome. Much appreciated! We will definitely come back to the Ringle Resort in our next visit to San José!

Room Tip: If you have to travel a lot in different parts of the San José area, try to rent a car (with navigat...

Initially we weren't sure what to expect and had some trouble finding it at first since it doesn't come up on the GPS there, but once we got there we were very surprised at how nice this place is. Very friendly staff and great service. The place is very well built and well maintained. I enjoyed staying here more than I would a 5-star hotel. The location is about 30 mins from the airport, in a nice neighborhood and up on a hill overlooking the city below. The rooms are very clean. It is a bit chilly at night so if you plan on sitting outside to enjoy the view bring a light jacket.

This is a beautiful small modern hotel 15 minutes from airport. Gorgeous rooms and grounds. We did not stay long enough to use pool but it is very nice with panoramic views. The staff is very nice and the breakfast was excellent. We stayed in the 2 bedroom casita with our daughter and it is beautiful. Highly recommend this hotel. The little town of Santa Ana is close and nice and there is a wildlife refuge directly across from the entrance.

Perfect small place in the center of escazu but quiet with surrounding gardens. We live in costa rica and have to go shopping in san jose every three weeks and we are looking forward to our next visit. For dinner we had perfectly cooked fresh fish. Excellent.
