Very nice luxury hotel. Each room has a beautiful view of the city below. Rooms were nicely furnished and clean. We enjoyed the trails and waterfalls. Staff was excellent. Restaurant reasonably priced for upscale hotel. We had a great couples massage from the spa.

We had a wonderful experience at Asclepios.
The grounds were amazingly well kept and clean. They grow some of their own food and herbs there. The pool has an amazing view of a large mountainside. It is exceptionally quiet (Except the Crickets at dusk and dawn). Everything is green, organic, and solar powered including the pool which is always kept warm.
The food is a little expensive but honestly it was the BEST food we found in all of Costa Rica, they have an amazing chef and staff in general. Everyone is very knowledgeable about the country. Breakfast usually includes a fruit bowl (custom prepared), some bread with a wonderful fruit spread and some tea or infusion. It was perfect to start our day but do NOT expect a continental breakfast, eggs, pancakes, etc. Everything in this restaurant is low carb, high protein, or vegan. There is no coffee on the grounds, no vending machines, nothing of the traditional hotel here, this is a Spa and place of peace and meditation.
There is no air conditioning, so it can get hot mid to late day, but the rooms are very open with tall ceilings and many doors and windows. They have a huge array of amazing Spa services from flotation therapy to massage and body wraps.
It is an EXCELLENT destination to just come and relax without ever leaving the grounds, or to come back to when you are out adventuring. Just be prepared to have a generous budget with you! Perfect for Couples and worth every penny!
Enjoy your Stay!
Nice place and is out side of the hustle and bustle. Nice garden and walk around the grounds. Great staff. peaceful place. The bed and bedding are very comfy and cozy. Shower pressure on turbo charge and plenty of hot water. There was an evening band, I could hear music from the room, but it did not interrupt my early bed time. The restaurant food was very good. ( breaded shrimp) and service was great.

Everything was great with the Pure Vida Spa and Yoga Retreat. The one big problem is that if a person goes on their website it says all meals are included. But, if you book through EXPEDIA the meals are not included and you will receive a whooping extra charge per meal eaten there. Be ready to pay more than expected.
The view is great and there is a very nice coffee field right across from the property which made for a very senic run and walk.
Staff was extremely accommodating. They went out of their way to assist us with rental car return. Also offered to let us know when our dinner was ready in the restaurant so we could clean up upon arrival.
Rooms were clean - slightly outdated. Hot water took its time coming but was plentiful.
Beautiful grounds and surroundings. Breakfast was wonderful, lots of choices and very friendly service. The rooms were clean with comfortable beds and clean washrooms. Not luxurious but perfectly acceptable. Cannot say enough about the staff. Emmanuel was very helpful, gracious and friendly. Nothing was too much for him. We got a free shuttle ride to the airport.

We have returned to this Hotel several times. If we get in late it is close to airport. If you do not want to risk missing your return Home flight. This is the place to stay. Traffic on 1 is ridiculous. You can be stuck for hours.
The city of Alajuela is in Alajuela province, 20 km (13 mi) northwest of San Jose and just 3 km (2 mi) north of Juan Santamaria International Airport. Many visitors to Costa Rica stay here on their way in and out the country. Colonial architecture is still evident in the city center. The central market, covering an entire city block, is a great place to buy souvenirs.
