We arrived at the hotel late and there was a power cut. The owner tried her best to keep us comfortable and provided torches and tea lights. She was accommodating the whole stay bringing us drinks and cooking a lovely breakfast.
I booked a supream room with 2 double beds. We were offered two separate rooms but decided to just go in one since there was no light or power. We were charged the price for a supream room still. This was disappointing and did annoy us since we didn't complain about the power cut ect...
My wife and I took our four grandchildren to San Jose to visit my wife's relatives. We spent seven days at Casa Primo and loved it. Elizabeth made us feel like it was our home. Fatima cooked a wonderful breakfast each morning. Ronald served as our driver and tour guide taking us to the Poas volcano, La Paz Waterfall Park, Punta Leona beach on the Pacific coast and to the rainforest. It was a marvelous trip and would certainly recommend it to our friends.
Breakfast was Awesome !!!
Very friendly staff, beautiful large room, the entire hotel is really gracious and comfortable.
No bottled water.
Service, staff, welcoming owner, nice pool. They greeted us with a complimentary beer!
This is like coming home. Elisabeth and her staff are absolutly amazing. Rooms are beatiful, very comfortable and spotless clean. Very close to the airport and moreover a quiet location. Great place to stay for starting and ending your holiday! Many thanks Elisabeth, and we hope to see you when you visit Amsterdam.
The facilities are gorgeous and Elizabeth, the owner, is a wonderful host.
I felt very at home here. They are very helpful and kind. Breakfast was great. The wifi was the most stable that I found throughout our trip. We even received a welcome drink upon arrival.
Elizabeth was phenomenal. You could not ask for a better host. She went out of her way on a number of occasions. Breakfast was a feast--varied and everything made fresh. Nice to enjoy hot tub after a long day (in San Jose traffic). Very clean; super attentive staff; nice & quiet--and the cutest dog ever!
The best lodging facility of our entire two-week trip. Great home, outstanding friendliness and safe, upscale neighborhood. No doubt if traveling again to San Jose, we would stay here. Thank you, Elizabeth!
Very beautiful place. Peaceful and safe, ike at home. Wonderful owner. Normally they do breakfast from 7.30am but we got it before 6am since had to go to airport. Its a bit tricky to find it but its worth doing it and Elizabeth will send you directions before your arrival. Complimentary coffee was excellent.
Elizabeth is just the best host. I would highly recommend Casa Primo to anyone.
Helpful and personable staff really went above and beyond for us. Short drive from the airport. Comfortable room.
The motto of this place is "Treat this like your home," and our hostess, Elizabeth, treated us accordingly. We were graciously greeted with cool drinks. Even their little white dog is friendly. Our room was spacious, with a living room area (and fireplace!). From the bow on the toilet paper to the towel swans on the bed, no detail was overlooked. The Casa is in a lovely residential neighbourhood with a group of restaurants a 15 minute walk away. While Elizabeth got our room ready, she paid for a cab to take us to a restaurant for lunch. Our early morning flight required a 5:15 am wake-up call--which was a gentle knock on the door. The night before, Elizabeth had prepared a continental breakfast for us, and she had a taxi waiting for us at 6:00. The service here is as good as you'll get anywhere.
Staff was exemplary, breakfast was delicious, rooms were appointed and large, value was excellent.
The hospitality of the staff and owner was above expectations. When we arrived our first night tired and hungry they where friendly and accommodating to all our needs. We asked if it was possible to get a light dinner so we didn't have to go back out and the owner graciously cooked a delicious late dinner for us. The rooms are lovely and the bathrooms large. The main sitting area comfortable with free wifi. I would recommend this for an authentic CR experience.
Better signs to find it at night would be helpful.
We had a wonderful visit with Elizabeth! She is such a warm person and her boutique hotel is one of the nicest I have ever stayed at. Everything you need is available and yet you have privacy and the luxury feel of a larger hotel.
We liked everything. Some reviewers mentioned having difficulty finding her place. Ask her to arrange a car for you or print the instructions -- it is not hard to find as it is right beside some major hotels.
It is a home away from home and the staff are excellent. The added little touches make all the difference. It is also excellent value for money.
It is one of the better areas for San Jose and is close to the airport but is not near the centre of San Jose. The local restaurants are sufficient if you are only staying a few days.
The staff was absolutely amazing! The facility's where amazing, the rooms where beautiful and clean and the breakfast was fantastic!! And once again I don't have enough good things to say about Elizebeth and her staff!! Great place to stay for all ages!
The owner's are very helpful and could not do enough for us, the fo od was excellent.
Very friendly and polite staff. Good breakfast!
Great hospitality, perfect location, lovely room - wish we could have stayed longer!
Beautiful accommodations and great staff.
Very nice. Staff very attentive and helpful. Quiet, clean, good mattresses, reasonable price. Breakfast simple but nice. Would definitely go back
Shower heads deliver skimpy water pressure. Not enough lounge chairs in pool area.
Beautiful B&B in residential neighborhood. Charming decor, roomy, very clean, wonderful staff.
Hard to find! They will send you directions, make sure to keep them! Even the taxis did not know where to go.
