A Wellness Escape in Costa RicaPosted Jul 2, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff, stunning views of the countryside, delicious food, tantalizing amenities, sustainably conscious, locally sourced food.
Cons: Noise reduction, extended Wi-Fi range into the rooms.
Location: The property is located just outside of the Alajuela city-center and strategically positioned no more then a 1.5 hour drive from activities.
My girlfriend and I planned a relaxing week in Costa Rica well in advance and originally selected accommodation at a different location. We received notification 3 weeks before our travel to Costa Rica that our original hotel selection was cancelled by the hotel which required that we make last-minute plans concerning our lodging. We stumbled upon Asclepios and booked out 6 nights there. We were greeted on the day of our reservation by welcoming staff and superb service. The staff were friendly, accommodating, and always willing to ensure that we were looked after. We stayed in the "Aphrodite" room during the entire duration of our reservation and we took advantage of the turkish bath, floatation therapy, and sauna services. Given the 'wellness' nature of the retreat it wasn't surprising that coffee, soda, and alcohol options are either limited or non-existent and we did not mind much. When I travel to Costa Rica again I will elect to stay once more at Asclepios; the stay was very much enjoyable.

An Excellent Quiet Retreat.Posted Apr 6, 2015
Pros: We loved the staff, food and the service. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgable. The grounds were kept in amazing condition.
Cons: The beds could be softer. The doors to the shower were kind of odd, you could either close the bathroom or close the shower but not both.
Location: Asclepios is 20 minutes north west of San Jose. It is an excellent middle point with most attractions about 1 hour and 30 minutes away by car.
We had a wonderful experience at Asclepios. The grounds were amazingly well kept and clean. They grow some of their own food and herbs there. The pool has an amazing view of a large mountainside. It is exceptionally quiet (Except the Crickets at dusk and dawn). Everything is green, organic, and solar powered including the pool which is always kept warm. The food is a little expensive but honestly it was the BEST food we found in all of Costa Rica, they have an amazing chef and staff in general. Everyone is very knowledgeable about the country. Breakfast usually includes a fruit bowl (custom prepared), some bread with a wonderful fruit spread and some tea or infusion. It was perfect to start our day but do NOT expect a continental breakfast, eggs, pancakes, etc. Everything in this restaurant is low carb, high protein, or vegan. There is no coffee on the grounds, no vending machines, nothing of the traditional hotel here, this is a Spa and place of peace and meditation. There is no air conditioning, so it can get hot mid to late day, but the rooms are very open with tall ceilings and many doors and windows. They have a huge array of amazing Spa services from flotation therapy to massage and body wraps. It is an EXCELLENT destination to just come and relax without ever leaving the grounds, or to come back to when you are out adventuring. Just be prepared to have a generous budget with you! Perfect for Couples and worth every penny! Enjoy your Stay!

ASCLEPIOSPosted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: Su naturaleza
Cons: Limpieza, instalaciones. Que funcione todo.
El hotel está muy lindo, y tiene un increible concepto. El problema es que no hay señalamientos para llegar, y la zona o lugar donde se encuentra está difícil de encontrar. Llegando lo ves hermoso, pero las habitaciones están llenas de polvo, y tiene esos detalles descuidados. La alberca está fría, en ese momento nos tocó la suerte que no servía el jacuzzi, no pudimos entrar ni al vapor porque algo estaban haciendo. En general no pudimos gozar de las instalaciones porque nada funcionaba. La gente por el contrario muy amable. Desgraciadamente el hotel es el que no funcionaba.

Don't miss the spa treatments!Posted Mar 2, 2015 on Hotels
I really enjoyed my stay at this wonderful spa. I had a flight out of San Jose in the morning and this was the perfect place to unwind after a two week trip. I highly recommend their spa treatments; I treated myself to the Arabic hammam, a lymphatic massage with a body scrub, and then ended my day with the floatation therapy. The service was excellent, the best spa treatments I enjoyed while in Costa Rica. The restaurant was closed for dinner, but I enjoyed a lovely lunch and breakfast there. I was in the Eros room and it was very comfortable, I could have slept all day. Will definitely stay here again on my next trip!

Beautiful OasisPosted Jan 14, 2015
It's funny to escape into a mediterranean-themed oasis in the middle of one of Costa Rica's town centers, but alas, Asclepios is a beautiful little oasis in the midst of Alujuela's bustling activity. This hotel is a true gem. The grounds are exquisitely designed and the staff is friendly. My partner and I stayed here after a few days of "roughing it" on cloud forest hikes, canopy excursions, and other outdoor adventures. Asclepios provided a much-needed respite.
