    Located just minutes from the airport! We flew in to San Jose late evening. They were waiting for us with welcoming staff. Easy check in. This hotel felt like a home away from home. We stayed here 3 nights. We started our vacation here and ended it here. $3 cab ride to airport. There's a walmart nearby if you need to pick up a few things. So private and quiet. The garden views in every direction were so beautiful. Large, clean, well decorated rooms. Delicious food and cold beers. Wonderful breakfast and cappuccinos! I felt so welcome and safe here and very well looked after. I will stay here again on our next trip to Costa Rica. You should stay here too!

    The perfect and warmest welcome to Costa Rica! Gorgeous grounds. So close to airport. Very secure with guard, gate, fence. A little paradise tucked away in the city, though feels like you are in the jungle. Delicious food and warmest staff. Will definitely be back and will also stay at their other family resort.

    A Convenient, Pleasant Urban Oasis

    This "grand" complex proved to be an excellent one-night conclusion to our month-long stay in CR! The setting, service and security exceeded usual urban-San Jose expectations. And its location just a few kilometers from the major airport made it quite convenient as a preparation point the night before air travel. The food tasted quite good, with very reasonable pricing; eating in the open-air restaurant was more than "lovely." And the pool and colorful grounds were well maintained. The huge trees and nearby river cooled the "compound" with breezes, so that the lack of air conditioning wasn't a major factor. However, planes taking off from the nearby airport made us question at times whether to keep balcony doors open or closed. This unique facility has been termed "an oasis" by many, including those we met from several countries. The delightful owner-manager couple have dedicated themselves to making anyone's stay an enjoyable experience. With this hotel's setting and only eight rooms, consider making your reservations far in advance.

    The grounds are beautiful, it was close to the airport, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We ate lunch and dinner at the restaurant and really enjoyed it. It was the perfect spot for us to rest prior to our early flight home.

    Great place, but close to planes taking off

    This is a lovely place. It was more "in the city" than we anticipated from the name. Still, it's a lovely large property, very beautiful. We arrived very late due to a flight delay. The night security guy(?) met us, but spoke no English and my poor Spanish wasn't understood by him. Nevertheless, we he knew our room, helped us carry our heavy bags upstairs (would have been good to know we were on the 2nd floor, no elevator), and booked us in for breakfast. He left before we could tip him. The room was spacious and comfortable, but noisy due to being so close to the airport. I was woken frequently during the night by the sounds of planes taking off. Breakfast was fabulous! Large, Costa Rican typical breakfast, and excellent service. We'd go back, but I'd bring earplugs.
