Amazing Trip and Stunning View!!!

5 out of 5
by from Toronto
Posted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: The view is STUNNING! No words to describe. Housekeeping did a very good job. Fernando was excellent and most of staff were extraordinarily nice
Cons: Liked everything about hotel but thought it was in a different area. Not many food delivery choices except pizza and chinese as the town is far.
Location: Location was not great, but the price and view made up for it. There is nothing to do around the hotel but San Jose is a 20 mins away.
We traveled in the shoulder season in May, and before choosing this hotel we read the great reviews about Fernando, the manager, as well as other staff at the hotel. We chose the hotel because we did not want to stay in a resort, but wanted a more adventurous vacation and its proximity to San Jose as well as its stunning views of the city won us over for our entire 10-day stay. Initially, I had doubts about Fernando ever existing, but a week before our trip when we were planning to book our day trips, we called the hotel and spoke with him. Fernando helped us on a daily basis, booking tours and cabs, and more. Him and most of the staff were great at making our stay very homey. We pretty much had the entire hotel to ourselves and had their assistance as we needed it. Fernando booked our tours and had a driver, Johan, pick us up from the airport. Johan became our personal driver and charged just as much as any other cab driver in the city. The cost from the hotel (which is located in Alajuelita, not Escazu as we initially thought) to San Jose was approximately $12 on a busy morning. Tours booked from the hotel were the same price, if not cheaper, as they would be if you had booked them online, but they pick you up and drop you off at the hotel instead of San Jose. Overall, we had the trip of a lifetime even though we did not stay in a resort. Costa Rica is an incredible place and everyone is extraordinarily nice. Cannot wait to go back!

Nice Hotel in the Mountains

4 out of 5
Posted Jul 3, 2015
Pros: I likes free breakfast, WIFI, free international calls from room, and computer in lobby if you needed to check on something from the internet.
Cons: Hotel could be painted and fixed up a bit but its Costa Rica so should be expected, unless your staying at an $150 a day hotel.
Location: If you wanted to do anything you had to go into downtown San Jose or take a taxi.
The Hotel was about 25-30 min from downtown San Jose, there was an bus stop 2 min way tho. Hotel was a bit older but clean and staff was very friendly and try to make you feel comfortable. Breakfast was great; Juice, cereal, bread, jam, toast, coffee, rice, beans, fresh fruits and bananas. Views at night were amazing, you can see all of downtown San Jose.

Roads are very bad to get there. And it seems a little bit old school inside the rooms.

Pros: Close to the airport, best view, friendly staff
Best view. Perfect place to stop before a flight. Staff are awesome. It is a little tricky to find but just keep heading up and you will stumble on it.

Nice quiet hotel but far from amenities.

4 out of 5
by from Florida
Posted Jan 20, 2015
Pros: Nice view, quiet. Lobby is always clean. Easy to get a ride. Being a physician, it risky if there was a real emergency.
Cons: Insulation. Can hear TV and people noise (like snoring, boisterous laughters, etc) from my room...worse at the middle of the night when I was resting.
Location: Nice place to do cardiovascular exercise. One bar/restaurant leaves us no choice.
It got cold, some nights. No heater. No extra blankets. I wonder if it gets so hot in summertime without air conditioning unit. Door was warping, it was making a noise to close it and I was concern I was disturbing other people. Most of the receptionist speak good English and are helpful.

Dear Valuable Guest Thank you very much for your comments. Our average temperature at the Hotel ALL year round is from 68-74 Fahrenheit. We were experiencing a cold front during your stay we would have been more than glad to have giving you as many blankets as you needed and also fix the situation with the door ,if you had just let us known. We value all of our customers concerns and are very happy to receive them in order to improve our services
