My husband and I stayed here for our to/from nights in and out of Costa Rica for our honeymoon. Tim & Sherry were great hosts, making us feel welcome and at home. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable and convenient place to stay when traveling to Costa Rica. We didn't have a change to meet Sarah,...

Although the taxi cab ride through the grimy town of Alajuela was a tad bit longer (about twenty five minutes from the airport vs. the five minutes we read about online) and pricier ($18 USD vs. the $10 we were told to expect), the congenial welcome my wife and I received from Vina Romantica owners, Tim and Sherry, more than...

We ended our 8 day stay in Costa Rica with a night at Vina Romantica. From our first contact, via e-mail, to make the reservation, Sherry and Tim were warm and welcoming. They made a quick accommodation in their Mexican style dinner menu to accommodate a vegetarian - creating on the fly a delicious veggie fajita. We were met with...

We started our and finished our two week vacation in Costa Rica by staying at Vina Romantica. What a perfect choice! Sherry is an incredible host. We were pampered with extras that we didn't see any where else during our time in Costa Rica. I loved the fresh flowers in the room and on the tables. The breakfasts are absolutely...

My husband and I were looking into going to Costa Rica for our honeymoon so I can get my zip-cord fix, but at the same time wanted to NOT go through some tour package and have to be on some crazy schedule for our honeymoon. So we looked into somewhere close to the airport, so we can catch a few...

The four of us arrived in Costa Rica and had found Vina Romantica and their Hello/Goodbye Package online. Although the majority of our trip was done on the fly, we booked this package ahead of time and it was one of the best decisions of our trip! Tim, Sherry, Steve and Sarah made us feel like old friends as soon...

We booked the "Hello/Goodbye" package for our last two nights in Costa Rica. My husband and I left Playa Junquillal and headed towards Vina Romantica. Once we arrived in the Alajuela area we had a few problems. We got lost and drove around in circles for almost two hours as there was road construction and detours in Alajuela and we...

A fabulous start to your Costa Rican experience. If you're jetting in from a long haul flight and want to forget that stress - there's no better place than Vina Romantica. You'll feel the stress melt as Tim collects you from the airport, transports you to your room overlooking the coffee plantations and you sip on that welcome cocktail. I...

This was our last stop to our 10 day costa rica experience. We arrived after driving in the dark (not recommended) to this cozy B&B for our last night before we had to leave the next day.
