Where do I start to describe this amazing hotel and amazing people?!?! First off before my husband and I even arrived at Hotel Santo Tomas I had flooded the owner Tomas with emails regarding our trip and our travels around Costa Rica. Tomas always returned my emails quickly and gave us a lot of helpful advice. The advice we were given from the moment we got off the plane (taking a cab to hotel) to the rental of our vehicle, made our trip around the country flawless and leaving us with the best vacation we have ever had. We spent our first 2 days in Costa Rica at Hotel Santo Tomas and their wonderful staff. Not only did we have a great time relaxing around the pool( and great hot tub) we had a chance to meet many friendly people who we spent the nights with having drinks, sharing stories and getting great advise. One person we would like to thank is Carlos the bartender. We still talk about you all the time and truly do miss your amazing personally and friendly manner. It was a pleasure to meet Tomas in person who once again gave us good insight of where to go and places to see. Tomas also suggested a deep sea fishing trip with a friend of his (Eddie Brown) which ended up being a highlight to our vacation. It was everything and more, and Tomas even took the time out of his day to call us while on the ocean to see how everything was going. The reason why I call this hotel a home away from home is that in the 2 weeks of being in Costa Rica we had the pleasure of staying there for 4 nights and each time we got back it was nice to see all the great staff ( ya you Carlos) and have that sense of comfort. I would suggest this hotel to everyone I know, and can’t wait to come back. The rooms were perfect and clean, food was GREAT and once again the staff was very accommodating. Special thanks to Doris for helping us plan many of our tours, and once again a very special thanks to Tomas for his great advise and awesome hook ups. It’s not very often when you stay at a hotel and get a personal phone call from the owner before you leave making sure we had the best time on our vacation in Costa Rica. Till we meet again....
