We stayed at this hotel the day we arrived for our CR vacation and the day before we left due to its proximity to the airport. The proprietor and staff were excellent, very willing to help with all our arrangements including car rental, taxi service and even ordering food to be delivered as their restaurant is not offering lunch or dinner. Breakfast is included in the rate and consisted of fresh fruit, yogurt with granola, fruit juice and coffee and a type of dense bread, all of which were very good.
The negative of this property is that while the grounds are beautiful, it is located up on a hill and there is a lot of noise from traffic -- we heard truck and motorcycle noise loudly most of the time resulting in having to keep our windows closed. This would be the reason we would not stay here again.
