I was a guest for a wedding here, the wedding was great, but the place was bad, horrible parking, horrible driveway to the door, really small place. For a place that is all about the view, this restaurant only has one tinny door to the terrace, we have to take turns with the service to walkout.

Breakfast was included then it was not, upcharge for...

We have stayed here numerous times as husband/wife only, as a family, and with a group of high school students/college students. The view is absolutely stunning. It's my numero uno choice for a first or last night when flying to/from SJO. And it's a quick trip to the airport if you can avoid Escazu traffic! The rooms are individually "decorated"...

The views from this hotel are phenominal. It sits nearly at the top of Pico Blanco. However, when I made my reservation, I told them I needed a room on the first floor due to a handicap problem I have. When I checked in, I reconfirmed this and they said I only had to walk up one stair. Well, the...

I stayed here for one night, but it was one extremely memorable night in the clouds. Located at a high elevation you can see the whole valley. While I knew I was staying in Costa Rica, the hotel felt like a villa in Southern Europe. It was peaceful and very relaxed. My room had a great view, with both a...
