OK but nothing to write home aboutPosted Jun 12, 2013
Cons: food, room amenities/dated
Location: easy to find with signs off the main road
I think this hotel has seen better days. The grounds were very nice and the room clean and fairly comfortable. The room lacked drapes (aside from a privacy sheer) so that made the sunrise rather evident when we would have rather slept in. Dinner at the restaurant was well presented and service was very friendly. Some croquettes on the side of a "tipico" dish were served still frozen inside. The restaurant comped the cost of the meal but this was surprising for what appears to be a fancy restaurant (I would have thought these and many other parts of the meal would have been prepared fresh but many items were from frozen as well). Several other dishes were so-so. Breakfast the next morning was filling with wonderful service but the food was again lacking.

Turrialba's GemPosted Sep 28, 2005
This hotel is one of the most beautiful and charming places i have seen in Costa Rica. It is fashioned in colonial hacienda style with great taste and elegance. The central courtyard is a delight and the service is always provided with a smile. The location is also a plus since it sits within 5 minutes of Turrialba and not far from the Turrialba volcano, the archeology reserve of Guayabo, the jungle and many coffee plantations. I have no doubt that this hotel would satisfy any traveler.
