This quaint wonderful hotel is small but wonderful. I cannot say enough about the fantastic staff. The room we had was small but very clean and comfortable. The grounds were so pretty. We just wish the pool had been heated. But even just sitting by the pool was so pleasant.

I spent 5 nights here in a small apartment. It was clean and well appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful. The airport shuttle is a bargain at $5. Breakfast was lovely. Fresh fruit is my favorite but I also got to try some typical Costa Rican dishes beyond gallo pinto. Highly recommend the little yucca, egg and cilantro pancakes.... More

We stayed at La Sabana during our first days in Costa Rica and found an excellent place to recover from a long journey. The hotel is located in a calm area but close to the city center and all shops you need. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Nice pool and good, local breakfast.

This is a delightful little place, both visually, and as place where you feel safe and cared for. It was a perfect transition from air travel to a restful vacation.
