We recently spent 3 nights at this resort in March. The grounds were lovely and Bernie the owner could not be more helpful, he gave me suggestions for our whole trip in Costa Rica as well as a recommendation for a driver Sterling who could not have been better. We also enjoyed a lovely dinner prepared by the owners wife at Pura Vida. I only had one problem their is a dog there named Lola who is a bit obsessive and wanted to spend more time with us giving us a rock to throw than we wanted to spend with her. I would recommend this hotel to someone who is spending the night coming or going to the airport, has business in San Jose, wants to explore around San Jose or just wants to relax in a delightful place.
