The real thing is better than the pictures
Art and beauty is everwhere here at Villa San Ignacio. It was delightful to experience this place--so quaint and decorated so interesting! The staff was so friendly and helpful. The dinner we had there was gourmet and the pina colada was the best ever! The complimentary breakfast was nice because it was not the typical buffet, but rather chosen off the menu.

Quaint and family friendly
We loved this little hotel! My family of 5 had a “family suite” of two bedrooms with a shared bathroom. The grounds, pool, and restaurant were all lovely and the staff attentive and friendly.

beautiful place, friendly staff. It is a good 5 miles from airport but if you have a car it is no big deal.

Great stay at beautiful property.
Our initial room, while it looked like it would be great, had a maintenance issue that management took care of by immediately moving us to the family "hut", which was massive and very nice. Breakfast was also good, and the grounds were pretty and very well maintained. Pool isn't heated.

Great start to our Costa Rican Honeymoon!
Villa San Ignacio was a great start to our Costa Rica honeymoon. They made sure we were able to check in with out late arrival, and Sergio our concierge who was working the restaurant accommodated us for a late dinner, which was delicious. The property also offers a short hike, which was a great beginning taste of the rainforest within the busy city. Be aware that outside of the villa property there is little to do and it is not the safest to explore, but the pool, gardens and restaurant offer plenty within the grounds. Our room was spacious and was just as the pictures portrayed. Breakfast was a delicious buffet and included with the stay, and parking was safe and on site. The staff was friendly and helped us feel comfortable throughout our short stay!

The location was perfect, very close to the airport but on such secluded property it felt like you were far away on a quiet estate. Staff and restaurant/bar were what made this place great, they even offered to pack us something to go for our early morning flight. Thank you Sergio and staff.

Excellent service!
We did a quick stop over at this hotel coming from Arenal to SJ to depart from CR to go home. We were there 12hrs and had some of the best service and accommodation from Tomas in our very short stay. We appreciated all he did for us! I chose this place from other recommendations and they did not mis-lead!

Stay here you wont be disappointed
I ve been a member of for 10 years and never have left a review except one other time. So I am posting here to let everyone know you cant go wrong selecting this hotel. I stayed five days here it was an excellent stay. The grounds were beautiful the room itself clean and well maintained. The people who operate the hotel were very friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant and bar and the food at restaurant varied and delicious. . We had the free breakfast which was freshly cooked fresh bread not just a buffet . All in all a very nice stay. 9 out of 10
