Such a beautiful place. Fruit trees everywhere and beautiful outdoor space swimming pool is beautiful. And the owner Brad is just a rare gem. Worth the stay coming from the airport on your way into the country. Only 25 minutes from the airport in San Jose.

I would highly recommend Orchid Tree, in fact....it was such a great experience that I will most certainly be back. A true outdoor rainforest experience with all of the comforts of indoor private suites. The owner, Brad, is a wonderful host... willing to help teach you about the Costa Rica traditions. Comfortable and very Zen-like retreat is how I would...

Brad was an excellent host, accommodating our family an extra day when illness struck, giving us great local recommendations, and feeding us fantastic breakfasts. We stayed very comfortably in the family suite, and enjoyed the gardens and a dip in the pool on a hot day. Recommendations for things to see in the area: El Toledo Coffee Tour and Museo...

We only stayed here for 1 night, but I would return and recommend the Orchid Tree. The grounds are beautiful and the common areas are comfortable to spend time in. We were appreciative of Brad, who went out of his way to help us with a late-night airport pickup. He also makes a delicious breakfast!

Brad made us incredibly welcome for our last night in CR. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and we could have done with a few of his suggestions earlier on! The service was great - definitely the best breakfast we had in CR! The room was comfortable - even if we had a bit of trouble regulating the electric shower...

We stayed at the Orchid Tree at the beginning of our trip and loved it so much that we ended up changing our plans and coming back for the last night of our trip as well! It's perfectly located near the airport. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms super comfortable, and Brad could not have been a more gracious host....

We stayed at The Orchid Tree from December 10-15, 2016 and the service was second to none.

The rooms are clean & well kept and privacy is NOT...

Brad and Pat make your stay in the area. Their wonderful hospitality, knowledge of the area, and gardening skills make for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. They make the wonderful grounds beautiful. And the breakfast is fit for a king. Beds very comfortable and well appointed. Just a little hard to find, but worth the effort.

I love this place, I have stayed at this location several times in the last few years. Walking down the hallway to the outdoor living room/ kitchen makes me feel very much at home.
