There are only 5 rooms here but the views are incredible from the deck and the rooms have fans and AC if needed. But at 4000 ft the weather is moderate. We never used the AC in June and had light blankets at night. A good breakfast is included, and Lorrena the cook and housekeeper is wonderful. The bus stop...

Very comfortable with a warm and happy atmosphere. Wonderful staff. Fernando, the resident manager, is a great guy and will handle any requests while keeping you smiling and laughing. This hotel isn't full of luxury amenities but left us wishing we had another week or two to stay just for the serenity. Hard to find- aim for the Taj Mahal...

Fernando our receptionist/translator/guide was very helpful recommending places to go, and was nice enough to order pizza for us when we were too tired to go out for the night. Views of the city from our balcony were unparalleled. Highly recommend.

We have stayed at Out of Bounds several times over the past few years. The rooms are clean and functional, and the breakfasts good and hearty. Staff are uniformly pleasant, helpful, and unilingual in Spanish except for the owner. The view overlooking San Jose and area is very nice, especially at night, from the rocking chairs in front of each...

There are a lot of reviews on here about how fabulous the upper level rooms and the views are, but I wanted to make sure the four (from what I could tell) interior rooms were represented, because ours was really unsavory.

  • A few of these really helped me get through my underwhelming stay here.
  • The stand-up shower (and the bathroom in general) was a positive.
