Out of Bounds Hotel
Ranked #9 of 14 Hotels in Escazu
Reviewed September 29, 2008

Don't let the name throw you off, although it sounds like a place for Backpackers, it's really for travelers (biz or pleasure) who are looking for clean and VERY comfortable accommodations in a PREMIUM location. We stayed at the Out Of Bounds Lodge several times during our summer in Costa Rica. Miranda and Matteo have set up a terrific place to stay in one of San Jose's best suburbs-Escazu. We travelled with a 2 and a 3 yr old, and had everything that we could possibly need to enjoy our stay- A/C, Very comfortable beds, Wireless internet, cable tv, etc. What we also enjoyed was the fact that the mall, costa rica's versions of WalMart and Costco, and anything else we needed to buy were all in the immediate vicinity (so we didn't have to worry about getting lost). The place is very secure and they have Ricardo their to help you with whatever you need. We enjoyed our stay and the only improvement that I would suggest is to change the name ( which I suggested) :)

I always enjoy staying at B&B when I travel, and we heard about Out of Bounds from reading blogs. The reviews we read were all great and what we needed to book our stay.
When we arrived it was slightly raining, but the owner was extremely nice and helpful. So when the owner walked us to our room he informed us that he upgraded our room since It was my B-Day weekend. Yeah!!! The room was very nice, clean and decorated beautifully. The bathroom shower was Great! It's decor is very modern chic. It was by far one of the nicest B&B's that I've ever stayed in.
The B&B is located on a hill, so you get a great view of Escazu. And it's walking distance to the mall and other shopping areas. There are a few clubs and bars in the area. We went to The Jazz Club, very cool. It's a 15 min. drive to downtown San Jose.
For breakfast you can choose from a traditional Costa Rican Breakfast, Continental, or American with toast, eggs and bacon; and you sit outside on the balcony and enjoy your breakfast.
The owners are a young couple eager to help you enjoy your stay at Out of Bounds.
Thanks for the great weekend!

An absolute gem of a B&B. We needed a base of ops for a week while house/school hunting, so we were looking for economical comfort in a convenient location (Escazu), with a view, and we didn't want to be locked away in a large hotel/resort where you can't tell what country you are in. Found this beautiful B&B in a web search and booked a room shortly after that - we even got a special rate on the large room with the terrace & Matteo picked us up from the airport. The young couple (she's Canadian & he's Costa Rican ) running the B&B also run various adventure tours and they are some of the warmest & nicest people you'll ever meet and sooo helpful (need to rent a cell phone or car? want to zip line through the forest canopy or free-ride down a volcano? have a thousand questions about getting settled in your new country? No Problem). The B&B they've built is very well done and reflects their great taste and attention to detail: orienting the building at an angle to take in the best views; very tasteful decoration using pieces from local artists; great landscaping; superb quality of the linens & mattresses; rocking chairs on the porches; free wireless; a fantastic terrace overlooking the valley on which to have breakfast & coffee or just sit in the sun. The B&B is also walking distance to some nice restaurants and a little commercial area. About 200m away is a dental office (medical & dental is very good in Costa Rica) so it is also uber convenient for dental tourists. Whether you are on honeymoon, house-hunting, adventure tourism, or medical/dental tourism this is a superb B&B and an excellent value.
