We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Posada El Quijote. From the moment we arrived, we were charmed by the gorgeous tile work and rich hues. The manager greeted us warmly and gave us a free upgrade to a suite with no extra charge, which was fantastic. The gardens and view of San Jose from the wide porch that stretched the length of the hotel were also stunning, and we enjoyed spending time in the peaceful living room (which felt like home) and eating the great breakfast in the open air dining area. Staff were incredibly kind - they were helpful with directions and finding places around the city. Aside from being helpful, they were also very friendly and we had some great conversations with them. Although the beds weren't as comfortable as beds in the States (no beds in Costa Rica were comfortable), and the driveway was difficult to get into and out of due to the narrow streets, it was still one of our favorites. We also enjoyed the good wi-fi connection in our room. Overall, it was warm, inviting, and a great kickoff to our Costa Rica adventure.
