We loved our stay. It has the feel of a villa. Our suite was large and full of character, the views from the patio were lush, and the food and service were lovely. Though it’s not far from San Jose or the airport, the location on the hills feels like a true escape. We definitely plan on returning.

We stayed there for 1 night - perfect if you arrive from San José Airport, it takes you 30/40 minutes by taxi. Very nice and clean rooms and an excellent service at the reception and restaurant. Dinner and breakfast was very good, also the wine Menue. Wonderful garden and pool, we really enjoyed it!

We stayed at Hotel Alta for five nights and thoroughly enjoyed the time. The hotel is situated at the crest of a ridge and the night view from the balcony was extraordinary. The grounds are also beautiful, especially the area around the pool. The room was large and well decorated. We recommend the 4th floor, which was convenient and high enough for a great view. There were occasional problems with the water pressure but nothing that didn't resolve itself it a reasonable amount of time. TV stations were not available, but the wi-fi was excellent and secure. It is about a 30-minute drive to the city center and about 10 minutes to the center of Escazu. Breakfasts are generous and good. We also ate dinner every night in the restaurant, a beautiful setting. The dining room has large open windows and the extremely professional wait staff was masked so we felt quite safe. The food was superb and varied. The front desk staff was very helpful, especially with getting our Covid tests and results. Highly recommend for a relaxing stay with personalized service.

I stayed at the hotel December 27-29. Booked room 502 . tried to take a shower, very little water coming out of the showerhead . Got out of the shower , called front desk to complain , and noticed the duvet on the bed had black dirt marks on it . I complained about both incidents ,they came and changed the bed, at that point i was told I would receive a 30% credit on the room . When I checked out , I was told the credit was forthcoming , after 3 e mails promising action , i disputed the charge with my CC company. Don't stay here, but do eat here , the restaurant is outstanding , and service from Gerald was the best.

This is a wonderful boutique hotel. We stayed here one night at the beginning of our Costa Rican adventure. The rooms are lovely, the view is stunning, and the pool is relaxing. Opt for the newly opened tapas restaurant. The chef is Michelin starred and the food is amazing. The osso bucco is to die for!
