A wonderful hotel in a 10 acre garden

Posted 14-Mar-2016
Pros: The garden
Cons: More variety with the food.
Location: Walk down into the town, or up to the little market and restaurant on the left. San Jose is a jumble of homes, churches and factories thrown together
The staff at the Bougainvillea welcome and get to know each and every one of their guests. You feel like you are a guest in their own home. The rooms are clean and spacious with great views of the mountain or the garden - I had a tree top view of a flowering Margarita tree - sensational! The dining is good and the prices comparable to most restaurants. Don't expect a bargain as there are none in Costa Rica. However, the breakfast is free, substantial and you can have as much as you want of eggs, sausage, fruit, yogurt, pastries etc. But a stay in the Bougainvillea is completely wasted if you do not take a moment or hours to walk through the garden on your way to the lovely pool, tennis courts or meeting areas. The birds will be calling you and you might trip over a few bird watchers if you are not careful.

Super nice hotel

Posted 28-Feb-2016
The location of the hotel is not the best but on the really nice spot. If you renf a car you won't be disappointed. The room was super clean. We had a garden view and it was superb. I would go back this place any time. I loved this place

Needs AC and better internet.

Posted 26-Feb-2016
The noise factor is a Big negativo and for that reason AC is needed. Could note sleep with Windows open besarse of the street noise

お姫様が出てきそうなお庭のあるホテル

Posted 21-Feb-2016
スタッフは親切でフレンドリー。お部屋や御庭が綺麗。朝ごはんだけをたべたが美味しかった。申し分無しだか、アクセスが車かタクシーを使う必要があった。

Very nice hotel.

Lovely rooms and extensive gardens. Staff was very helpful on all occasions. They even sent a vase of roses to our room! Meals were generally fine even if we were not always tuned in to some of the breakfast items.

Beautiful hotel: mountain view and fabulous garden

Posted 19-Jan-2016
Expedia screwed up my reservation. I made it for two rooms (5 adults total; 2 in one room; 3 in another). Expedia reserved 3 rooms and I could not change it at check in. Didn't use 3 rooms and should not pay for 3 rooms. Expedia should reimburse me for one room.

Comfortable with a lovely garden

Posted 08-Jan-2016 on Hotels
Lovely garden and pool area. Weak wi-fi signs except for the restaurant. Rather noisy if you get a room towards the street, where trucks roam throughout the night. Average breakfast. Spotless rooms and buildings and extremely well kept garden.
