I arrived at this hotel harried and overwhelmed. Arriving from the Panama border, my backpack had inadvertently been left by the bus company at the border! I was panicked and extremely distraught. The incredibly kind man who checked me in, Gregory, spoke flawless English and was determined to get to the bottom of the matter. And he did with utmost care and concern for me until my backpack and I were re-united the next day. I remain very grateful to him.
The hotel is lovely, beautiful little sitting areas all around and my room was simple and yet had everything I could want. The warm color schemes everywhere also gave the entire place a homey and cozy feeling. Everything is very well maintained and cleaned constantly.
As has been mentioned by many other reviewers, the breakfast is nothing short of amazing - certainly the best I've had throughout my Central American travels and set in a gorgeous garden setting.
Aranjuez is a wonderful oasis in a city like San Jose and it was the best choice I could have possibly made in the crisis I found myself in. Even if I hadn't been in such a state, Aranjuez is still a fabulous choice!
No need to look any further in San Jose - stay at the Aranjuez and you'll be glad you did!
