Hotel Posada Canal Grande
Ranked #6 of 8 Hotels in Santa Ana
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 2, 2011

If you are looking for a place to stay that will give you a more realistic cultural experience, not those all-inclusive resorts, then look no further; Hotel Posada Canal Grande generates that calm tranquil environment that we all desire on a vacation. The fantastic mountain view, sitting on the patio overlooking the large pool while having a cocktail, is absolutely breathtaking.

Definite winner! Will recomend to anybody.
Clean, rooms, friendly, helpful staff, good breakfast.

Only thing I recommend, make sure you clear cost and form of payment upon registration. We had a little misunderstanding, all was solved at check-out in a nice matter. Will definetly comeback next time. Staff is well informed and willing to help.

Room Tip: Just check rates vs form of payment at check-in.

We enjoyed the location, the sunsets from the back yard, the pool, the hammock chairs, the serenity of the place, and the personal service! And we brought our small dog! Very convenient.

A beautiful grand 'hacienda' style hotel in Santa Ana, just outside San Jose. Whether coming to stay for several days or a few weeks, or looking for somewhere to stop on your first night in Costa Rica or before flying home, Hotel Posada Canal Grande is a hidden treasure you'll enjoy discovering. My wife and I stayed here for three weeks while I taught at the United Nations University for Peace (UPeace). Having traveled extensively around the world I would highly recommend this hotel to business travelers, families, and couples looking for a romantic get-away. The hotel itself provides a wonderful atmosphere. The staff are both professional and friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have a wonderful experience. The rooms are large and nicely furnished, set on two floors which open around a beautiful pool. Beyond the pool are the hotel grounds with many types of trees, plants, flowers and a few cacti. For mango lovers you can simply pick them off the trees and have a fantastic treat whenever you'd like. With very nice grounds around the hotel you have a feeling of peace while being within easy reach of the city. The view is breathtaking. Looking out from the rooms you see rows of mountains in the distance. Nearly every night brings a magnificent sunset. A wide range of places to eat, from an Italian restaurant at the bottom of the road to 'Oveja Negra' (The Black Sheep) which has delicious food and excellent margaritas. There's also a very nice little local eatery run by a grandmother which delivers delicious burritos, nachos, ribs and much more to the rooms. The best meals of all though are those made by Marco, the owner of the hotel. After having been to Italy several times I can say his pastas are amongst the best I've ever had. Together with superb red wines available at the hotel it makes for a wonderful culinary experience. For a hotel with an authentic feel, wonderful guests, superb staff, and a beautiful setting, you can hardly do better. Highly, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Fantastic views from the top floor.

I noticed this hotel on Cheapair.com and it had the best reviews. Not to mention it looked so charming so I just had to check it out. To my surprise it was even better then I imagined. The staff was remarkable!!! Especially, my friend Heiner (AKA Angel) who went over and above to help me out. Everyone made me feel really comfortable. I was also amazed by how clean the place was. They have care takers around the clock. I just had to take pictures of the place! The owner, who is from Italy, had the place so beautifully furnished ... you almost feel like you're in someone's home. It's a little out of the way and therefore it's a great place to start, or even better, end your trip. It will leave an everlasting impression on your mind. Love the place can't wait to visit my friends, especially angel, at Hotel Posada Canal Grande. I give it a 5+ stars!!!!

Room Tip: They all have a great view!

I really have no reason to go anywhere else. Its the only place for me in San Jose (Santa Anna). If you want an intimate, non-chain, place of beauty and piece, go and enjoy!
