We were fortunate enough to stay at the Hotel Bouginvillea for one night. This was our first time there. They only had one room available ( a king suite) and they gave it to us at the discounted rate of $95 + tax.
The suite was BIG and the king sized bed was really like sleeping on a cloud! The sheets were a high thread count & made the bed feel even more luxurious.
There is no air conditioning at the Hotel wich kind of freaked us out at first, but there were screens on the louvered windows to the balcony and the temperature of Heredia actually feels like air conditioning outside! With the ceiling fan on to stir a slight breeze we slept SO comfortably! My best sleeping experience so far in my 2 month trip across Costa Rica.
The grounds are BEAUTIFUL and there is actually a tour of their gardens set up for guests - they have over 30 types of bromeliads and many other beautiful plants.
We got in late so the restaurant had already closed but we were able to eat at the bar from a small selection menu. The service was really great old-school type service and this was from the bartender! I know I missed a special treat by not being in time to eat in the dining room.
The only down side to our stay was that they were completely booked after our first night and we couldn't stay another night.
When we checked out they gave us a DVD of their garden tour as a gift.
