“beautiful bed and breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

The courtyard and the wildlife inside was always great to wake up to. Nelson and his staff were awesome and took care of all our needs. It was a great jumping off point to our Costa Rican vacation. We would recommend this place to our friends and family.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the 2nd floor facing the courtyard

This is not your typical B&B but your home in San Jose .my husband and I were there for 3 weeks primarily for my dental care.Nelson,Danny,and all the staff became our "family "in San Jose and I will never stay anywhere else.I have to return at least twice in the upcoming year to finish my dental care (poor me ha ha)Nelson,the proprietor is the "man with the biggest heart in latin America"he goes above and beyond anything you would normally expect from a B&B owner.we left very early Tuesday morning and we miss casa Lima already.all you have to do is call their miami phone # and ask to speak to Nelson or Danny(the day time front desk manager)tell them what your bedroom requirements are and they will do the rest.p.s. The price is right.

Just finished a week's stay at Casa Lima. A good place to explore San Jose from. Clean, well run establishment with an exceptional Concierge. Daniel is the best for arranging transportation, things to do, or taste treats of local specialties. He has a "personal" touch that is a true talent. Try the pizza - it's great.

In February of 2013 I stayed at Casa Lima B & B, along with about a dozen other people who were in San Jose for church-related outreach. The family atmosphere at Casa Lima was the big plus. Nelson and Daniel were so friendly and accommodating for my personal needs and the needs of the group. The central courtyard/garden area really enhanced the casual, relaxing atmosphere of the facility. And the food was very good also. The room I stayed in was very simple, the closet was a little small, and the hot water system in the shower only allowed for very low water pressure. But, you know, none of that really bothered me. It was a pleasant place to be, just a few blocks away from shopping malls, and Casa Lima provided a sense of safety and seclusion from the rush of the city. It was a good experience.

Room Tip: I was in Room 9, a small room, but close to the tropical garden and the sounds of the patio waterfal...

Casa Lima's staff is very accommodating and friendly. The room was pleasant, the food was good and the jungle-like courtyard was a real treat. We spent lots of time at a table in the courtyard, using CL's wireless Internet connection to send email and take care of business. We really enjoyed how the resident kitten, Sunshine, liked to curl up in a lap whenever one was available. He and the other cat, Boots, put on a daily show with a squirrel who teased them by coming just within reach or by climbing into the parrot's cage to steal food. Don Kiko, the capucin monkey, is unpredictable but never boring. Good location with several good restaurants within walking distance.

A very pleasant staying, the staff was extremely helpful and welcoming. Since we lost one of our passports during our stay in Guanacaste, CL's proximity to US Embassy was very convenient but I would defenetily come back. Thank you for everything.

Casa Lima is a great place to stay. Staff is very friendly and always looking for a way to help make your trip the best. Location is very good, you have the basics very close, such as banks, pharmacy, supermarket. The place is very nice, if you like nature. It's small but very very cozy.
