The courtyard and the wildlife inside was always great to wake up to. Nelson and his staff were awesome and took care of all our needs. It was a great jumping off point to our Costa Rican vacation. We would recommend this place to our friends and family.

Just finished a week's stay at Casa Lima. A good place to explore San Jose from. Clean, well run establishment with an exceptional Concierge. Daniel is the best for arranging transportation, things to do, or taste treats of local specialties. He has a "personal" touch that is a true talent. Try the pizza - it's great.

In February of 2013 I stayed at Casa Lima B & B, along with about a dozen other people who were in San Jose for church-related outreach. The family atmosphere at Casa Lima was the big plus. Nelson and Daniel were so friendly and accommodating for my personal needs and the needs of the group. The central courtyard/garden area really...

Casa Lima's staff is very accommodating and friendly. The room was pleasant, the food was good and the jungle-like courtyard was a real treat. We spent lots of time at a table in the courtyard, using CL's wireless Internet connection to send email and take care of business. We really enjoyed how the resident kitten, Sunshine, liked to curl up...

A very pleasant staying, the staff was extremely helpful and welcoming. Since we lost one of our passports during our stay in Guanacaste, CL's proximity to US Embassy was very convenient but I would defenetily come back. Thank you for everything.

Casa Lima is a great place to stay. Staff is very friendly and always looking for a way to help make your trip the best. Location is very good, you have the basics very close, such as banks, pharmacy, supermarket. The place is very nice, if you like nature. It's small but very very cozy.

While I realise that different people are looking for different things in a b&b, I find it hard to believe that Nicholas and I stayed at the same establishment, as my experience at Casa Lima was the exact opposite of his. I found the grounds and the waterfall that fed the fish pond to be very relaxing and welcoming, and...

The staff at Casa Lima went out of their way to make our stay very pleasant. Having lost a passport during our stay in Costa Rica, Casa Lima's convenient location (3 blocks) to the US Embassy was perfect for us. Breakfasts were good and so was Kiko. :) The A/C in our room (14) needed work; it was v noisy...

it did the job of providing me with a bed after flying all day from London when I knew that is all I needed. However it was very basic and the room and shower fairly grotty. Plus the sound of their water feature in their internal garden did keep me awake. The staff were friendly but I would not return....
