Nice B&B outside San Jose
Posted Jun 18, 2008
Vina Romantica is a small 4 bedroom bed and breakfast in the hills above Alajuela, owned by a lady from Texas. I only stayed there one night so I didn't get to experience any of the food, but they did have a kitchen on site with inside and outside seating. The rooms don't have any TV's which could be good, could be bad. There was a nice flat screen in the main lobby/seating area for 3-4 guests. The rooms were freshly painted and very clean. Beds were comfortable. The view from our room of the volcano and city was amazing. Not much to do on-site from what I could tell. Internet access is available in the seating area, not sure if there was a price for use or not. The B&B is located in a mostly residential area, so it felt safe but also had the barking dogs and such. There was a very friendly resident cat to greet you. No A/C in the rooms, but ceiling fans and open windows seemed to work for us, it was early June though. Being in the hills, it cools down nicely at night.
