Quiet resort hotel, good for relaxingPosted Jan 7, 2016
Pros: The staff were very friendly and always accommodating.
Cons: The switch operating a fan in both ours and someone else's room was a bit of a surprise. The menu could be expanded somewhat.
Location: The hotel is a little remote, plan/ budget for transportation if you want to visit the surrounding area.
Asclepios is a good get away with friendly staff, a pretty location, well maintained grounds. The spa services are reasonably priced (relative to the US) and the food is ok (although the menu is somewhat limited). The included breakfast is a fruit plate, bread (some good whole grain breads), and nice teas... if you're typically hungry in the mornings, they do offer an extended menu, but expect to pay extra for breakfast. Location wise, you should understand that this hotel isn't centrally located for most of the tourist stops... so if you want to head over to Poa (Volcano), Doka (Coffe), Downtown San Jose (Museums), etc... anticipate some expenses related to transportation (ask the front desk to call Milton - excellent taxi driver - tell em' Anthony and Silvia said hi). There really isn't much around the hotel in walking distance (this includes ATMs, Grocery stores, etc...)... so also plan accordingly. Our room was nice and spacious, with a pretty view, a water carafe w/ mint every day... overall pretty good. It should be noted that the walls are pretty thin and sound travels (though most people are pretty quiet). Our room (Weng Ching) had one oddity... the switch for the fan/ light, also operated the light in the adjacent room... which lead to a few late night surprises... part of the adventure.

Honeymoon WeekendPosted Nov 12, 2015 on Hotels
Our stay at the Hotel was unique. Being on our Honeymoon we wanted to chill and enjoy Costa Rica . The Hotel we booked was great ,but I felt it was more so for a spiritual retreat. The front desk staff was great. The staff while.only consisting of maybe 3-4 people were pretty amazing. They took great care of and my wife, but the hotel wasn't made for entertainment. We were the only people on the resort and the massage type music made us feel like we needed a lightning jolt of energy. The Food while good was overpriced even for a wellness spa in Costa Rica. We were forced to eat both nights because everything was so far away. The highlight was Milton our Cab driver. He took great care of us Pura Vida Style. He knew the front desk woman and that made up for the stay at the hotel. He drove us for the trip, went into the various excursions, and even helped us out of a monsoon at the Waterfall. He introduced us to his girlfriend Ingrid, took us out at night up the road to authentic Costa Rican Food and we even went to a Kareoke bar. I think the hotel was good, but a bit more personality will make it great.

A great hotel a little careless.Posted Nov 4, 2015
Pros: A secluded hotel, great rooms with a tub. It has a nice pool and restaurant.
Cons: Every time i took a shower, water spilled out from the shower onto the floor. Breakfast was not good and expensive.
Location: Nothing very near. Some 10 minutes away there is an excellent Italian restaurant very good near Zoo Ave.
A great hotel but it is a little careless. The food was not good at all and expensive. Paid $4 for a couple of plain eggs. Breakfast is included but only a plate of fruits and a toast with juice. The rooms are very big and the bed is comfortable. Pool is nice.

When for a 4 days escape type vacation, the hotel was perfect for us , very good service, people working in the hotel was very friendly. Room was big and clear. Food wealthy but pricing. Very relaxing place . View and breezy from mountain was priceless.

Buen conceptoPosted Sep 7, 2015 on Hotels
El hotel es maravilloso, ideal para relajarse y descansar. Especial para vegetarianos o amantes de la comida saludable. El desayuno incluido en el precio es muy reducido y básico, y no tienen café! Todo lo que pidas adicional es demasiado caro!
