An Oasis in San Jose

Posted Mar 31, 2015
Pros: See above. Thank you to Nelson for meeting us at the airport and driving us directly to the hotel.That was a true GIFT!
Location: There are a few good restaurants nearby. Just speak to the staff for info.
Thank you, Nelson Ruiz, for creating such a lovely oasis in the heart of Rohrmoser, a quiet, conveniently located suburb of San Jose. You were such a gracious host, making us feel at home quickly. The tropical courtyard at the heart of your property is a gem. We actually spent our third day quietly reading there, listening the birds and waterfall.

2 blocks from USA embassy /excellent dentist & lab

Nelson (owner) + staff excellent assistance with; car rentals, taxi, tours, restaurant recommendations & dental restoration offices. Small hotel is older but quite clean. Fresh fruit each A.M. excellent, however main course add-on items were only fair...

Convenient location for my dental appointments.

The staff here is great. Always go out of their way to see if they can help. I would have liked a Gallo Pinto and eggs for breakfast instead of the fruit and bread, but there was an extra charge for that. All in all a fine place.

CASA LIMA is a gem!

Posted Feb 23, 2014
Located in an upscale area, within waling distance of restaurants and a bit of shopping. Fantastic service by owner NELSON and a friendly staff. They can't do enough for you. Several guests were return or long-term folks and you can' t have any better reference than that. We highly recommend this place and want to return.

Friendly, welcoming bed and breakfast

Posted Aug 21, 2013
Pros: The customer service, the welcoming atmosphere, the beautiful interior of the lobby/courtyard, and large rooms.
Cons: Wish there would have been some sort of protein with the breakfast, such as cheese for the delicious, warm rolls.
Location: Quiet street near the U.S. Embassy. Banks, shopping, groceries, restaurants and gas station in walking distance.
The customer service at Casa Lima is wonderful. Nelson was very welcoming, and called me by name as I walked in the door to check in, having never met me before. Gabriel was awesome, and treated us like family. Our family enjoyed having a monkey, 2 cats, a parrot, and other animals in the open courtyard. The family suite was great because it was 2 separate rooms, each with its own bathroom and entry door. Our daughters appreciated having 2 twin beds instead of 1 double bed in their room. We really felt like we were at home while staying there. They gave us suggestions for excursions, arranged a reasonably-priced taxi for our trip to the airport, and called the rental car agency regarding the return of our car. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. Shops, banks and restaurants are within walking distance.

One night before early flight from Tobias airport

Posted Aug 20, 2013
Pros: Good location, clean, friendly staff.
Cons: The monkey and birds were close to the dinning room. I didn't like smelling them while I ate.
Location: Close to Tobias Bolano airport and American Embassy.
The rooms are basic but clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had pizza and pasta, both were very good. I would stay here again for one night. The rooms are close together, but the air conditioning provides "white noise" to help drown out noise.

Great jumping off point for your CR vacation!

Posted May 1, 2013
Pros: The courtyard and the wonderful staff
Cons: If I had to pick something i guess it would be they didn't sell beer, but that wasn't that bad.
Location: It was near plenty of shops, banks, resturants, and the american embassy.
All in all it was a great experienced. Nelson and his staff was friendly and helpful with all are needs. The courtyard was beautiful with lots of wildlife all around. It was great start to our Costa Rican honeymoon! Exactly what we were looking for!

Safe, Welcoming

Posted Mar 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
I was just in town overnight. It was a safe neighborhood to walk around. Close to stores, pharmacies, US Embassy (hopefully you don't need to seem them). Staff was friendly, helpful with tips and coordinating activities/transportation. I would prefer not to stay in San Jose myself but many folks there stayed there as their home base and did day trips. Lots of animals around.
