Reliable shuttle service included, nice place with garden, pool and little park for the kids, wonderful night view of San Jose, calm and cozy room.
The surroundings accessible by walk are not so interesting so it's better having a car or to sleep just one night there.
This hotel reminded me of the people back home in Texas. Everyone was so warm and friendly and even though we were leaving super early for the airport the staff made sure to pack us a to go breakfast plate with fruit, banana but bread and granola bars! Loved the hotel, room was gorgeous, I would recommend this place to anyone :)
The staff was excellent,from the front desk,to the wait staff and the housekeeping.They were all very helpful and pleasant. I would definitely stay here again.Thank you for a great experience .
Secluded , private
No AC was extended family with two units. Too far from each other. Would've great to be away from others but needed to be closer to each other.
Too expensive, very bad location, no eggs for breakfast
The gardens of flowers and coffee beans and quiet peacefulness was an unusual experience.
This is a great airport hotel, much more than the usual airport hotel you would imagine. They even have a pool and a coffee trail, and more than everything - some rooms have excellent view of the central valley. On our last day we forgot one of our bags in the hotel, and they sent it to us to the airport in no time (with a special car) FOR FREE!! This is an amazing service! We definitely recommend it!
The breakfast is basic (continental fruit, coffe, juice, toast butter and jam. For eggs you pay extra.). And the light in the terrace attracts some nasty bugs... But all this is nothing, because this hotel is GREAT. Don't think twice!
The rooms here were calm, beautiful, comfortable and lovely in every way. The grounds were gorgeous too, and the staff was very accommodating.
The restaurant food was so-so. Some of it was good, some fairly boring
The location had excellent views of the city. It was beautiful at night. The staff was helpful and very attentive. We stayed in a villa and it was more beautiful than the pictures.
The lights on the walkway near our villa were on all night. The room was not dark.
Excellent food Friendly staff Beautiful grounds and garden
Room was nice and very comfortable. The view is amazing. Easy parking. Breakfast was very good. Location is good for Poas volcano and airport.
No fridge nor safe in the room. WiFi wasn't working in our room (#9), we had to go to the lobby to have it work. Dinner wasn't that good for the price. Hotel is located in a residential area, so no restaurants or commerces around.
the hotel has colonial style, really beautiful house, excellent decorated. the bed was very comfortable
nothing, all was perfect
A wonderful spot for our first night arriving in Costa Rica. Pick up at the airport was helpful, view of San Jose incredible, comfy beds for a good nights sleep.
The villa was truly exquisite! Gorgeous room, and a view that was breath-taking!!! The price was hard to believe for such luxury.
Every thing was great, this is a wonderful hotel and the staff was very attentive. i would love to stay there again.
Location was great, the staff was very helpful.
Building was a little noisy (stairway to upper guest rooms).
Staff was excellent, friendly, very accommodating. Beautiful views and extremely comfortable rooms
Hotel is isolated, need to take taxi or have own transportation.
The charming hotel and gardens
It seemed difficult to get to after dark
We loved the grounds, complete with a "coffee walk." The hotel's landscaping was beautiful and our room with three beds was super comfy. Our view from the balcony overlooked the city lights and the bathroom was sleek and modern. The gift shop was full of last-minute tasteful souvenirs and the staff was exceptional!
This is just a miniscule personal preference, but the bed was too soft for me and my husband.
We stayed here for our last 3 nights after a 3 week trip. An absolutely wonderful place to relax and recover from all our adventures.
The hotel has a lovely location with a beautiful view on the valley and very nice setup garden. Our child loved to explore the coffee trail, the little playground and the small pool. The staff was very friendly and helpful and customer oriented in a relaxed way. We absolutely recommend this hotel for first and last days. The airport is close by and the shuttle is included.
From our point of view there is no real thing to improve.
