I've been coming to this hotel for at least 10 years and it's always clean, the grounds are gorgeous and the hosts, Billy and his wife are exceptional. The rooms are spacious and overlook the San Isidro valley. At night it looks like fairy lights as you look out of your balcony. Even if it is thunder storming, the views...

We are 2 friends traveling together and decided to splurge for a comfortable beautiful stay en route to the Osa. Our hosts were so accommodating and friendly and speak great English although we mostly communicated in Spanish. Breakfast was delicious. Laundry service was awesome to have. We didn't use the jacuzzi but it's free if you don't heat it up....

We found this place by searching on here while we were in the area. It's outside of town so a vehicle is necessary to get there, it's up quite a steep hill but once you get there, the view is breathtaking. You walk up to a beautiful garden filled with lush pinks and purples, flowers all in bloom overlooking the...

This hotel was beautiful and inexpensive. I would definitely go back.They recommended an excellent restaurant just down the road with an even more amazing view as well as great food at a very reasonable price. The outdoor Jacuzzi costs $10 extra and needs three hours to heat up.

The staff was very extremely friendly. The grounds are very pretty and the view of San Isidro is amazing. We made acquaintance with a cab driver who lived close by and he provided us with flexible and affordable trips into town. We bought groceries and stored them in the fridge in the room. They always

We had a room on the upper floor, having a nice view. Rooms were clean, service was great, good wifi everywhere. Our room had a kitchen, so we cooked our own meals. Shower was nice and hot. Nothing to complain, just a perfect peaceful place.
