Pros: It is a pretty hotel.
Cons: Too few options on the restaurant menu.
The hotel rooms are pretty nice, but its location is not very convenient. It is 30 minutes from SJO air port, and the tax fare is $35 dollars.

Little Paradise

Posted 06-Mar-2016
We stayed in a Ssuperior room for 3 nights and then came back for 2 more. It's a beautiful, intimate hotel in the mountains outside of San Jose. The views are stunning. The staff was friendly and helpful. We hope to be back! The only reason I rated the room comfort at 3 was the rooster... The rascal had a nasty voice and would start at 3:30am... Some comments/suggestions: 1. Having a thin blanket would be nice. They have a blanket was way too warm, and the sheet was not enough . 2. The bathroom could use an extra roll of toilet paper.during our five day stay we ran out twice. 3. The breakfast was nice, but it was the same thing every single day. If you stay for more than two nights eventually you get tired of the toast.

Excellent place in Escazu!

Posted 05-Mar-2016
Pros: Quiet, clean, great view, excellent staff.
Cons: NA
Location: Great view, close to excellent restaurants.
Ringle is a quiet hotel perched on a hill overlooking San Jose - a great view! The grounds surrounding the property are extremely well maintained and full of tropical flowers, trees and birds, providing a very relaxing atmosphere. We booked the deluxe room but have been upgraded to a suite (a bedroom w/ 1-king bed and a living); the living has wide windows to let you absorb the view. Very clean room/bathroom, well-maintained building, TV, A/C, free wi-fi, pool, terrace, library, room service between certain hours. Breakfast was included in price - fresh fruits, yogurt, freshly brewed Costa Rican coffee, pastries, toast with butter and preserve. The staff went beyond the call of duty to make sure our stay there was excellent. Close to excellent restaurants. Airport transfer available for a fee.

Beautiful location

Posted 27-Feb-2016
Pros: Location Low key atmosphere.
Cons: Swimming pool, availability of coffee, comfortable chairs or sofa in in the room.
Nice location with gorgeous view of the city but tough to get out in the morning due to traffic. Large pool but not heated and water too cold to get in. A non-working Jacuzzi in most romantic location was a tease. No coffee maker in the room. Nowhere to sit in the room! Our room had tin roof. Things falling on the roof from trees at night made it tough to have sound sleep.

Cheaper place, worth a stay, nice place to be, nice environment, near city, anytime better than hilton, mariott groups, and all "Inn" group of hotels... Met Marco. Marco is an amazing guy who is the site manager.

Dissatisfied with my stay

Posted 24-Feb-2016 on Hotels
Sadly I was extremely disappointed in my stay at Ringle. The check in office is terrible and very uninviting, as was your staff. I felt like I was staying in a cheap hostel. The suite I was offered had windows directly to the main patio (zero privacy and felt like I was in a fish bowl), so I had to keep the blinds shut at all times. I saw maids cleaning the suite next door and your staff wouldn't let me pay to upgrade as they said there was a "hold" on that room for 24 hours. How does that work when I'm there on the property ready to pay you money on the spot? And nobody checked into that room that night. No clean/bottled water was offered and the restaurant was closed. No wifi in the rooms, and taxi cabs and uber could never find the hotel. Bed was hard as a rock, uncomfortable, and no patio in the room as they portrayed for the suites on the website. Pool was also cold. I would have checked out after 5 minutes of being there but it wasn't an option via your refund policy. I will never stay in this hotel again, and will never refer anyone to this hotel.
