This property is a truly hidden gem from the wonderful location on the canyon to the decor and comfort both inside and out. The included breakfast was always delicious and creative. But what made this Inn top-notch was the very warm and welcoming staff\owners Marsha and Eleazor. They could not do enough for us. Walking distance to the Italian restaurant...

We stayed overnight & were blown away by the view over the canyon. The room was nicely decorated & the mini-bar provided refreshments if you arrive after a long flight. We did not have time to use the hot tub but hopefully next time. There is a very good Italian restaurant about a 3 minute walk from the Inn. We...

We stayed here 2 years ago and had a wonderful time. We returned again this year with friends and stayed for 3 days to explore the volcanos and sights around San Jose. We had another warm welcome and fantastic hospitality from Eleazar and Marsha. They introduced us to a new restaurant L'Italiano which is in walking distance Love you guys

Recently spent 10 nights in this small hotel because of its proximity to Escazu where I obtained extensive dental work.

Spent our first night here and would happily have stayed longer. Great location, fabulous pool if a little chilly but kids loved it and the hot tub is for warming up. Marsha and Eleazar were so friendly and helpful, we couldn't have started our holiday off better. Would definitely recommend!
