What an oasis! A beautiful hotel on a spectacular site, the best part of this experience was the people. The staff are exceptional.

We stayed here 2 years ago and had a wonderful time. We returned again this year with friends and stayed for 3 days to explore the volcanos and sights around San Jose. We had another warm welcome and fantastic hospitality from Eleazar and Marsha. They introduced us to a new restaurant L'Italiano which is in walking distance Love you guys

Recently spent 10 nights in this small hotel because of its proximity to Escazu where I obtained extensive dental work. The spectacular canyon which the rooms overlook, & the nighttime view of the sprawling city skyline, are unforgettable memories from my pleasant days & nights spent in this charming place. But most memorable & important to me was the instant...

Spent our first night here and would happily have stayed longer. Great location, fabulous pool if a little chilly but kids loved it and the hot tub is for warming up. Marsha and Eleazar were so friendly and helpful, we couldn't have started our holiday off better. Would definitely recommend!

My family and I stayed there for five days between Christmas and New Years. The location is perfect, close to San Jose, but isolated enough that you truly feel away from the hubbub.
