Muy Excellente

5 on November 27, 2013

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Terraza Guest House. Jeanetta, the owner, was gracious, entertaining and very helpul in assisting us in getting around. The cook, Christina, is fabulous, the meals were absolutely delicious. We also used Jeanetta's driver Geraldo, he was friendly and an excellent and safe driver. The rooms are very comfortable and extremely clean. This bed and breakfast is probably one the cleanest places I have ever stayed. The grounds are beautiful and the river that runs behind the property will lull you to sleep at night. You must go for a walk over the brand new bridge to look at the river up close and to enjoy the beautiful scenery which also includes fruit trees. I highly recommend La Terraza Guest House, you will not be disappointed. We are already arranging our next trip for 2014."

A delightful week in Grecia

4.2 on September 19, 2011

We stayed at La Terraza in Grecia from September 2 to September 8, 2011. We were looking for a B&B in a small town in the Central Valley that could offer us three things: a king-sized bed, an ensuite bathroom, and a kitchenette. La Terraza was the only one we found that met all those criteria. What we didn't know when we booked was the added bonus we would receive - the hospitality of Jeanetta Owens. What a delightful hostess! Since we were there during Low(aka Green)Season, we were fortunate to be the only guests during our chosen week. Jeanetta was/is a wealth of information about the area and readily shares her experiences as an ex-pat living in Costa Rica, an experience of much interest to us. The employees are first class. Cristina prepared an excellent breakfast for us every morning while we watched the humming birds and butterflies; and twice she made lunch for us at an extra cost. She also did our laundry twice - promptly and with great care. Carlos was friendly and justifiably proud of his lush garden. It is obvious that Jeanetta treats her employees well. They are delighted to work for her and fiercely loyal. We only dined out 3 times during our Grecia stay. Mostly we ate Cristina's cooking or in our own kitchen. We enjoyed shopping in the local supermarkets. We also were impressed with the realtor that Jeanetta recommended. If that is something you are interested in, do ask her advice :) During our week in the Central Valley, we visited, Atenas, Naranjo, Sarchi, Heredia, and Alajuela, returning every evening to our 'apartment' in Grecia. It was our 3rd visit to Costa Rica but our first time to explore this part of the country. If/When you go, be sure to make La Terraza in Grecia one of your destinations

Nov. in Costa Rica!

The grounds at this B&B are just beautiful, you will sleep to the sounds of rushing water off in the distance. Our room was very comfortable and very clean. We found the location is a lil more than walking distance from town, you will need to taxi everywhere. We very much enjoyed our 3 night stay here.

Great place

5 on May 02, 2010

Excellent hospitality, the scenery was spectacular, we couldn't see ourselves anywhere else for our first 3 nights in Costa Rica. Jeanetta was a great hostess and had lots of ideas for things to see. The food was excellent and the grounds were beautiful.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the lovely review! One of the nicest things about owning a small bed and breakfast is that I get a chance to personalize visits for guests, from rooms, to food, to tours, and whatever else may be required. Come back to visit us again, and again thank you.

La Terraza is the best place to stay in Costa Rica

4.0 on February 07, 2010

When we went to Costa Rica this past January, we honestly didn't know what we were getting into. Thank God we found Jeannetta and the La Terraza Guest House in Grecia. She immediately made us feel at home and very welcome. We made many friends at her home, and we feel like we have a home to come to the next time we are in Costa Rica. Thanks Jeannetta for a wonderful time

La Terraza is a Gem

5 on January 21, 2010

La Terraza is a gem, its own little paradise. The two rooms and apartment are lovely and beautifully decorated. Jeanetta treats her visitors like family and the staff go way out of their way to make your stay comfortable. We felt like home here. We made some friends among other guests and had a great time doing things together. If you like to be more private, that's ok too. Sit on your balcony and listen to the stream that runs through the back yard. The breakfasts are "down home" style and they'll make anything you want. This is a nurturing place; you won't want to leave.

Exceptional Facility & Hospitality

4.0 on October 14, 2009

La Terraza Guest House has outstanding lodging and the view is beautiful, which enhances the relaxing atmosphere. The hospitality of management was truly amazing. The services offered by the staff were high quality and focused on exceeding customer satisfaction. The location allows for easy access to the bus station, tour guides and airport. I plan to make La Terraza my choice of stay when I return to CR.
