"Hands down - best experience in Costa Rica!"
I never write reviews, but one is needed for the Peace Lodge. Our flight was cancelled and they helped us reschedule our visit during one of their busiest times. I am so thankful that they did this so we could experience this amazing hotel and staff. The room, food and staff was beyond wonderful. We spent 10 days in Costa Rica and this was our favorite place of them all. My only regret is that we did not stay longer. La Paz waterfall staff went above and beyond to treat my family as if we were the only people in the park. We have never had such hands on experiences with the animals. You can tell the staff care about their jobs and customer service. They seem to really love what they do. The rooms are amazing, but the staff is what really put this hotel over the edge. Thank you Freddy, Henry, Jocelyn, Jefferson and Vivenne for everything!!! If you are in Costa Rica don't miss out on this hotel!

"My stay a Isla Verde"
Aside from the little drawings on the wall, which really didn't bother me much. My stay at Isla Verde was fantastic! The room was clean and fresh, bed comfortable, and everything worked. The staff was pleasant, I was able to meet two of the owners. Upon request they called for taxi or a shuttle with no hesitation. Breakfast was delicious with variety from 6-10am, enough time for everyone to indulge

Hotel & Spa High Dreams - Adults Only

Frente a Esc Santa Margarita Rosario, Naranjo - Map
"Great location"
We went to High Dreams to escape the heat on the beach. The mountain location provided the relief we were looking for But we were the only guests at the hotel. Consequently the hot tub was cool and only upon complaint did the temperature get adjusted. Victor was great and welcoming. He did a great job convincing us that what we wanted to drink and eat was what he had available. Some people might get irritated by this tactic. We just found it humorous. The room was clean and comfortable though not luxurious. The deck area was beautiful. A perfect place to enjoy breakfast. The upstairs pool was cold and pretty dirty. But watching the birds skim the surface was quite entertaining. Victor speaks excellent English. The other employee spoke none and our weak Spanish, though usually enough to get by, was totally ineffective with her. We were here mid week. I think things might be a bit more improved if there were more people in the hotel We will probably go again.

"Mystical location in remote cloud forest"
The staff of this wonderful lodge were so warm and welcoming! All of our needs were quickly attends too. We ate in the beautiful dining room and every meal was fantastic. We appreciated the well trained wait staff, presentation of the food, the gourmet menu selections as well as the extensive wine list.....We enjoyed all the activities booked through resort. The activities staff at the stables were wonderful and we had an amazing riding adventure going through rivers and along wild green fields! We also booked the market/cooking class with the eco concierge and had so much fun as he narrated stories of the old village and his experiences growing up locally. The resort is deep in a valley that's accessible by a narrow old road. You feel that you're truly entering another world. The seclusion and serenity was so restoring and yet the little local village was a 15 min away by foot path. The rain makes everything so verdant and clean! All night long you hear the rush of the river that outlines one edge of the property. Wonderful memories were made at el silencio!

"Beautiful Green Hotel"
We only stayed in the hotel overnight on our departure from Costa Rica. Beautiful individual casitas, with lots of windows and stylish furnishings. The sunset pool was really nice and offered fantastic views of San Jose. Walking from our little casita to the lobby/restaurant offered an amazing botanical trail. We were really comfortable! Recommend.

"Clean, Safe, Beautiful Setting"
We had a great time staying Mango Valley. Javier, the manager, is awesome. He talked to the Uber driver in Spanish to make sure we had our directions right; he helped us get our luggage to our room; he helped us order food from the local restaurant (They deliver!) in Spanish; and he made sure that our taxi driver knew where we needed to go on our final day there. He was very thoughtful, and this made all the difference to our comfort. We had a very nice time.

"Great relaxation hotel, with a caffeine fix"
Stayed here after an adventure portion of our trip and found it to be a great relaxation spot. Sprawling pool with amazing views of the valley and our room had a good-sized patio to unwind at. The rooms (at least the one we stayed in) are all offshoots from a gorgeous atrium-like structure with a fountain and a fireplace for cooler months.

Hotel Grano de Oro

Calle 30 Avs 2 y 4, San Jose - Map
"Wow, what an incredible stay!"
What a gem, the Hotel Grano de Oro was! We tied this into our plane booking (at my wife's prompting, more on that in a moment), and am so glad we chose this place! My wife suggested as we would be flying most of the day, perhaps we could find a place in San Jose and just call it an early day once we landed. We got to the hotel early evening, were greeted warmly. Once you walk in, the hotel is inviting, comforting, and enveloping. Check-in was a breeze, and while our bags were taken up, we got a nice drink at the bar. We enjoyed our drinks, then made a dinner reservation, retiring to our room before dinner. I do believe we got an upgrade on the room, as the room was grander than we expected. After a short nap and shower went to dinner. Of a choice to eat in courtyard or the dining room, we ate in the courtyard. Lovely dinner, lovely service, and excellent wine. I honestly forgot what we had for desert, however I do recall that feeling of bliss one gets when everything is just right. Retiring up to the room, the bed was quite comforting and slept soundly. Even though we had a room on the exterior I could not hear any city noise. Nice wood floor and ceiling of a wood native to Costa Rica and done in a dark coffee stain. Very classy, and when we go back, I will ask if this same room is available. At breakfast sat in the dining room, and had wonderful breakfasts. The staff coddled us. Next year, two or three days here, wife and I agreed.
