Costa Rica is a great countrym you can have it all in a few days, and costarricans are really nice people, I wish I could...

I just finished a one month visit to Costa Rica, and I stayed at the Hotel Posada Canal Grande in Piedades de Santa Ana the whole time. They gave me a great rate, and provided everything I had need of. I was a little apprehensive about making such a lengthy reservation online, without actually seeing the hotel - I have...

Hotel Posada Canal Grande is a remarkable place not for VIPs though. However I really enjoyed it there because it gives you the feel of a typical Costa Rican culture. There are no air conditioners but the windows are made in such a way that the air from the surrounding mountains keeps the place cool as if from an air...

I stayed here for just one night at an exceptionally low rate....the quality truly surprised me given what I paid. This hotel is very quaint and comfortable - if I'm back in Santa Ana I will surely look to stay here.

We stayed one night at the hotel while on our way to the Osa Peninsula and enjoyed it very much. The hotel is about half an hour from the airport, up in the cool hills. At our request, they sent a driver to pick us up at San Jose airport. The hotel is delightful, and with so much character: colonial...

Tired of staying at cookie-cutter hotels, with endless, long hallways of identical doors and identical, boring rooms? The Hotel Posada Canal Grande is the opposite. It's like I imagine the fancy (and incredibly expensive) hotels that folks like Brad Pitt stay at when they travel. Huge rooms, huge beds, beautiful, spacious lobby, and fantastic poolside patio in the middle of...
