When we arrived at the Hotel, we were in complete awe of the view of San Jose .... Beautiful ! Our taxi driver did not know where he was going, but there are signs all the way up showing the way. Just ensure if driving you look for "Paradise Inn" signs and you will be set. From the get go, the staff where incredibly kind and helpful. Raul, the owner spent time with us giving us directions to Poas volcano and giving us some insight in to the Tico culture. The lovely Giselle at the front desk was extremely friendly. When we arrived she had her son take us to the store a couple blocks away so we could get a few snacks. Fernando ( concierge, waiter, driver, and all around super guy ) made sure we were well fed and taken care of. For a small price he took us downtown San Jose in the Best Western van and picked us up. He was a lovely man. The food was great... Our hats off to the chef who really personalized our meals and made sure there was plenty of Imperial and Vino ! Our rooms were clean and fresh thanks to Julia. We have a family of five and found our room to have sufficient space. We had no issue with any bugs. I would bring some ear plugs as dogs seem to be everywhere (all over Costa Rica) so if you are a light sleeper, you may hear them. We never used the pool as we were gone all day, everyday. And if you are in need of some exercise, it's a very hilly area so perfect for a good cardio work out ! The owner kindly invited my husband and boys for a walk the day after we arrived. I was surprised to see the photo's my boys took from the walk ... Coffee bean trees with ripe red cherries on them, cows and a lot of chickens, beautiful views and vegetation, and churches. We started off with staying at the Inn for our first 3 days and then came back for the last night. We so looked forward to our last night. We developed a relationship with the staff and looked forward to seeing them before leaving. The Ziehr Family
