10/10 Exceptional

A proper hotel without modern gimmicks
It's so good to have a hotel room with no TV or other distractions. Our trip was for wildlife and we were meeting a guide there, but the grounds were superb for birds. The restaurant was excellent, both service and food, and many facilities were available e.g chess, a pool table, books, but none of the "fashionable" nonsense like a gym etc, which very few guests actually use. Umbrellas are available if you arrive in a torrential rainstorm, which is always possible in Costa Rica, and when informed that I have difficulty climbing stairs my room was immediately changed to a ground floor.

10/10 Exceptional

We stayed in Villa San Ignacio for 10 days this April to explore the Central Valley of Costa Rica. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very nice and always helped us with any questions we had. We usually had dinner, which was always delicious, back at the hotel and Angie took care of us every night. She was very nice, sharp and helpful and we feel like we made a friend in her, gracias por todo. Breakfast is on the house and very good and you have several options. Also many thanks to Sergio, Jorge and Tomas and the rest of the staff who were very kind and helpful. The hotel is very clean, and is located where it doesn’t get very hot. The extensive grounds are beautiful and perfect for a walk. We hope to return again.

8/10 Very good

Excellent staff and beautiful hotel
Just spent one night to scout the area for an upcoming event. The hotel grounds are lovely and the trails are easy and full of birds which make it a beautiful and peaceful break away from the hum of the big city crowds. The staff are nice and accommodating. I had several meals at the property's restaurant, Pandora and the server, Angie is delightful and attentive. She is a great representative of the hotel and the level of hospitality. Sergio at the front desk was super helpful and arranged for my Covid test to be taken at the hotel and other services (spa and airport transportation). Would recommend a stay here if you need to be close to the airport and want to wind down before you head back to reality.
menu is vegan and vegetarian friendly - Heart of Palm Ceviche
Fish tacos
