Superb 9,2 From 142 reviews

Very good 8,0
Overall, this is a lovely property. There is, however, a fair amount of loud traffic noise from trucks and motorcycles early in the morning. The pool area and dining areas, both under cover and open, are lovely and well kept. Our room, #7, had water coming into the room from under the service door each night we stayed, enough that it needed mopping several times. My husband used a wheelchair much of the time, and the paved ramps were well maintained. Also, the staff was most helpful whenever my strength gave out. I also enjoyed birding while here. The grounds are attractive for birds, and there are some trails in the woods that were quite nice.

Great birder’s hotel to start trip
Terrific place to start my CR birding trip! Gated villa with a surprising number of bird species on the grounds. Food excellent. Treated water available in dispensers. Comfortable. Wonderful. Will definitely stay again.

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.

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.

Charming Spanish colonial atmosphere, excellent food (including breakfast buffet on terrace) very friendly & efficient service: very relaxing yet close to SJO airport. Only minor drawback was occasional traffic noise - apparently some Ticos like hot rods - but did not affect our sleep. So much better than a typical airport hotel!
