As Always, You're the Greatest

You guys are the best. Some might think the rooms a little Spartan, but I would not change a thing. The view of the lights of San Jose from my mountainside window at 2:00 a.m., shining through the mist, was mighty fine. Tom Elfers, attorney, Miami

A Lovely Enjoyable hotel to stay!

It is an oasis of peace among trees and flowers (even mandarin orange trees) Splendide view of mountains and city. Suites/rooms are spacious, well groomed and super comfy. Good breakfast, plenty of fresh fruits. The friendly reception desk mgr. Fernando is more than efficient, polyglotte,helpful, and very good sens of humour. Much appreciation for Lady Lorainna, kitchen and rooms. Thank you so much for yr kindness. Will visit again, MiMi,Werner

I went here in 2010 but never got the chance to write a review til now. It's a great place to stay, location is good, owners are great and friendly, food is great. There's also an Indian restaurant nearby and I highly recommend it. The room is wonderful. I stayed on the 2nd floor and left the door unlocked, window open. In front of me is the sight of the volcano. Lovely! The owners even arranged airport pick-up and tour guide for us, including the tours. Wonderful!!!

Superb B&B, wonderful hosts!

An absolute gem of a B&B. We needed a base of ops for a week while house/school hunting, so we were looking for economical comfort in a convenient location (Escazu), with a view, and we didn't want to be locked away in a large hotel/resort where you can't tell what country you are in. Found this beautiful B&B in a web search and booked a room shortly after that - we even got a special rate on the large room with the terrace & Matteo picked us up from the airport. The young couple (she's Canadian & he's Costa Rican ) running the B&B also run various adventure tours and they are some of the warmest & nicest people you'll ever meet and sooo helpful (need to rent a cell phone or car? want to zip line through the forest canopy or free-ride down a volcano? have a thousand questions about getting settled in your new country? No Problem). The B&B they've built is very well done and reflects their great taste and attention to detail: orienting the building at an angle to take in the best views; very tasteful decoration using pieces from local artists; great landscaping; superb quality of the linens & mattresses; rocking chairs on the porches; free wireless; a fantastic terrace overlooking the valley on which to have breakfast & coffee or just sit in the sun. The B&B is also walking distance to some nice restaurants and a little commercial area. About 200m away is a dental office (medical & dental is very good in Costa Rica) so it is also uber convenient for dental tourists. Whether you are on honeymoon, house-hunting, adventure tourism, or medical/dental tourism this is a superb B&B and an excellent value.
