My wife and I recently took a trip through central America to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We stayed at Posada El Quijote for a night on our way from Panama to northern Costa Rica/Nicaragua. I wish we had the opportunity to stay longer as this was one of our favorite stops of the entire trip.
The premises were absolutely beautiful and the views of the surrounding city were breathtaking. We enjoyed our room, the charming qualities of the hotel, and the beautiful balcony overlooking the city just outside the back door. The location is in close proximity to many great restaurants and activities. My wife and I fell in love with the city during our short stay and we are actually looking into the option of transferring and moving to Escazu with my company.
The icing on the cake was the amazing service we received from Alcides and the owner, Bjorn. Alcides went out of his way to help us reserve our trip to Nicaragua. Bjorn also went out of his way to answer the questions I had about Escazu as I had expressed interest in moving there.
This place is number 1 for a reason and it's due to both the premises itself and the amazing service. You won't be disappointed.
