As many people agree that this is a very elegantly designed hotel. The designer did a great job. The room is very clean with simple yet stylish furniture. There is a large balcony, and the view from there is stunning. The staff are efficient, really friendly and nice. What we liked is that there is a small communal area where...

Spent the evening with friends enjoying a superb live jazz performance (special event) and some of the best food I've found in Costa Rica. There are lovely outdoor areas to enjoy a glass of wine, and many of the rooms (but not all) offer balconies with stunning views of the valley. If you want a room with a view be...

This was one of the most beautiful hotel setting I've seen in a very long time. It was nicely secluded what a beautiful view of the countryside. We had a private patio that overlooks the city with beautiful lights everywhere. The staff was just perfect we were greeted with their signature drink. The dining area connected to that hotel was...

We started our vacation in Costa Rica with a couple of nights at this hotel. It is a beautiful hotel and the staff were incredibly welcoming. We were there on Christmas day and they had an excellent special Christmas dinner in the restaurant. We would definitely stay here again if we return to San Jose.

After the long flight in our travel agent recommended this area rather than the bustle of San Jose which was against my initial plans - thankfully it was the right decision although I probably wouldn't mind a look at the city on my next visit. In terms of the hotel it was clean and well decorated with the rooms having...

Nice boutique hotel just outside of San Jose in a great area. A great place to stay when you arrive in Costa Rica late and do not want to travel far to your resort. The restaurant is awesome. Nice clean rooms!

Elegantly designed hotel with friendly and discrete service. The rooms are elegantly appointed with terra cotta tiled floors and simple but comfortable furnishings and have large balconies with table and chairs. The restaurant is airy and overlooks the secluded pool area. Service is friendly and efficient. The hallway between the rooms has very high ceilings with arched braces, giving a...

Modern, unique and fantastic service. I stayed one night at the Alta, but would definitely recommend to stay at least two nights. This is not a hotel you choose just for a stop-over in San Jose. The facilities, rooms, breathtaking night view of the city and the restaurant La Luz definitely make it the most romantic option around.

“We enjoyed an upstairs room with outside balcony & stunning views.”
 of 5 bubbles gillianb727, 25 Feb 2017 | Read review
“Our room was the closest to the pool and the restaurant, it was very convenient as we just walk outside the room from the balcony to go to the pool. However, there wasn't 100% privacy as we could see people passing by going to the pool right from our bed. Next time I would choose an upper level room where I can have the curtains wide open and enjoy a more private view. Also you have to be careful and just be sure to lock the doors/windows that lead to the balcony, because of the traffic area.”
