"Stunning views and amazing setting"
Peaceful tranquility complemented with comfortable and clean accommodation! Sitting out on our own balcony overlooking the slopes of the Poas volcano was just heaven! :) The friendly hosts completed the perfection of this hotel - always helpful and informative, and ready to offer advice for sight seeing and exploring. We just cannot wait to go back again!

"Great B&B; very welcoming owner/manager."
People who stay at a B&B are generally looking for an experience that differentiates itself from a hotel stay. Roberto, the owner/manager, runs a fine establishment. Although you'll need to get cabs into the city, Escazu provides a much quieter setting and a respite from a busseling city that is a must see. If Roberto offers pick up from the airport, accept it. David, the driver, is a good guy. Also, and exceptionally helpful, is a cell phone that Roberto may offer you for the duration of the stay. Trust me, as we found out, better to have a cab company on speed dial that knows the B&B's location than not.

"15 days staying...."
We spent 2 weeks in this hotel. The location of the hotel is good: a lot of restaurants and shops around. The cleanliness of the hotel is perfect, staff was friendly and helpfull, the set up and variaty of breakfast is exellent. Tv can be a little bit bigger and wifi can be stronger. We enjoyed staying there and recomend this hotel not only for weekend but for a long period.

Hotel Buena Vista

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Buena Vista for 2 nights and had an excellent experience. We had originally only booked one night and planned to stay there the day before we left Costa Rica, but bad weather at another location led us to call Hotel Buena Vista the day before our stay to see if they had any availabilities for another night. They were very helpful, spoke perfect English, and booked us a beautiful balcony room that very day. The parking area felt very safe, the staff were smiling and happy to help us find activities in the area. The rooms are spacious, and it was cool enough even in July that we didn't mind there was no A/C. The first night we stayed in a room in the main hotel, and the walls are a bit thin. There was a large tour group staying at the hotel and we could hear them during dinner and whenever they entered/exited their rooms. Our second night was completely noise-free though. We upgraded to a private villa (there are 5 on property). We had a huge room with 2 beds, 2 couches, a private screened in porch overlooking San Jose. We ate dinner on property that night, huge portions and good quality. It only took us about 20 minutes to get to the airport from the hotel, but you would never know you were so close with how private the grounds feel. We will definitely stay again when we return for our next trip!

"Old school luxury"
This hotel is far off the beaten track outside of San Jose...which is wonderful because it is beautiful and quiet, but slightly inconvenient if your main purpose is to go on rafting tours out of San Jose or to get to the airport (It is a $25 taxi ride to the airport and tours companies won't pick you up from the hotel...we had to take a $6 taxi ride to get closer to the city for them to pick us up to go rafting). It was quite the adventure to find the bus to get there from central San Jose, and it is up 100 m off the road with one small sign saying "hotel", but the locals are very helpful to point you in the right direction. We arrived and felt immediately welcomed and well taken care of by Elisabelle and the other staff members. The price was amazing for the large rooms and bathrooms, cleanliness, pool, and areas to relax. I say "old school luxury" because you feel like you are staying in a refurbished upper class hacienda...heavy dark wood features, large balcony, high vaulted ceilings (we stayed on the top floor). The main lobby area also has a lot of charm and the ambiance is beautiful especially after it gets dark because they light so many candles! It There were numerous places to sit in a hammock or a comfy chair and there was no road noise at all...a far cry from San Jose. I would highly recommend it for a getaway location and small town feel.

"Excellent ambiance in the heart of the city"
This hotel was great mostly for its people. The desk staff, bartenders, wait staff, cleaning staff - all nice and very helpful. I travelled with my sister and we stayed in Cala - the rooms have names instead of numbers. We had 2 comfortable beds and a nice bathroom with a shower/tub combination. We were there from 7/2 - 7/8 and slept with the window open every night and were very comfortable. In addition, the food was excellent! Breakfast was the same everyday and very good, but the dinners the chef prepared were some of the best around! Try the Spaghetti - who would have thought an Italian dish in CR would be so remarkable?! The staff was helpful in confirming tour pick up times for us, responding to a call when we broke a class in the bathroom - eek, and even arranged to order and pick up a cake my sister requested for my birthday. I don't recall the name of the bakery, but the cake was to die for! I'm sure if you ask, they can hook you up. Overall, a great place to stay! One thing of note, there is a train that passes (down the middle of the street!) about 60 feet from the hotel. it didn't bother us at all, in fact we liked hearing it. But if you're sensitive to such sounds, be aware!
