If you want a warm and authentic Costa Rican hotel you won't find better than this. It is not an American style hotel thank goodness but if that's what you want go elsewhere, they are ubiquitous. The value for money can't be beat with clean rooms, lovely gardens and a pool and a good breakfast to start the day. The...

We are more than glad that you had a great stay, you are right, if you would like a non-traditional and chain hotel then you found the right place where service is customized and tailored to every individual customer. You always can reserve dinner served usually from 7pm at the hotel terrace, we will be glad to make your dinner!...

We are more than glad that you were not deceived by our comments and you experienced it yourself, as you said we are conveniently located not far from the airport, ideal for the arrival and departure and why not for longer stays as we are not a square hotel. Like always our staff will be willing to make from your...

Recently stayed here 8 nites. Fabian, Heiner and Tatiana, were incredibly helpful, gracious and knowledgeable. Couldn't ask for better service. The hotel is beautiful, the surroundings and furnishings are so warm and comfortable. Breakfast on the terrace is magical and a great way to start your day. Felt safe and tranquil. Only thing missing was a bath, or if the...

What a deeply enjoyable and relaxing experience I had here. I was fortunate to just stumple onto Hotel Posada Canal Grande. I found that I stepped into a nurturing caccoon of hospitality and graciousness. This is often what is missing in the larger more coporate hotels. The furnishings were of the highest quality in Mediterranian style accompanied by original art...

This is one of my favorite places to stay in the San Jose area. It's way off the beaten path in Santa Ana, yet close to everything we go to San Jose for. I love the feel of the place, it's very "tranquilo" as they say here. The owner has brought in so much furniture from exotic places, it's wonderful...
