We had an early flight from SJO, so we stayed at this hotel the night before. Many of the hotels in the San Jose area seem sketch, but this hotel was a perfect retreat.

This place is absolutely beautiful. We felt like we were pampered guests staying at a celebrity's private home. I've stayed a lot of different kind of establishments all over the world, and I've paid 5–6x more a night for upscale lodgings than I paid at Ringle Resort, but I don't think I've ever stayed in so lovely a room.

We’re thrilled to hear your visit to Ringle Resort was met with great satisfaction. We spent nearly a year remodeling the entire resort, appointing each room with plush furniture and bedding while installing state of the art showering systems considered the best on the market. Most rooms feature multiple showerheads, including the heavily sought after rainfall showerhead. In addition, we... More

We had the good fortune to find the beautiful Ringle Resort in San Jose. The rooms were lovely and large. The people that worked there were beyond helpful. Katia helped us with every detail of our trip before we arrived and the restaurant stayed opened to accommadate our late arrival. We wish that we were there longer!
