Great view of San Jose and surrounding mountains/volcanos. Staff is very attentive and supportive. Rates are very reasonable. We have brought mission teams from our church in Texas the last three years to work with the CCA church in Alajuelita and we will be back again next year.

If your staying any more than one night you'd have to be crazy. If your staying for a few days following cosmetic surgery change your plans.

This is a nice hotel overlooking San Jose, located in the mountains of Escazu. The price was good, the bed was comfortable, and breakfast was good. The hotel has a TV with cable. It was very good value, and not very far from the airport. It is a very difficult drive to the hotel, and there is no address. It... More

the Staff (Gisele specially ) was the nicest most informative employees ever. the view will take your breath away and is worth the stay for that alone. the room we were in was very small and needed some updating, but we did only pay $30 /night internet connection was great and the place was very clean.
