Zamora Estate Hotel
Ranked #4 of 5 Santa Ana B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 January 2013

The Zamora Estate Hotel is conveniently just a short trip from the international airport. I started and ended my Costa Rican adventure at Zamora spending three nights there at the begining of my vacation and 2 nights at the end. The grounds are stunning with lots of wildlife. The rooms are spacious and charming, and beautifully decorated with local wood throughout. There is air conditioning, ceiling fan and private raised balcony with views across the pretty Estate in every room. The food and the hospitality was incredible - the owners Ana and Roman are passionate about Zamora which makes this place so special . The service is very personal and you do feel like you are at home. With only four detached bungalows it is never crowded. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Costa Rica and you must stay for more than one night........

Room Tip: All of the rooms are equally well placed and furnished to the same high standard

This was our first stop on our Costa Rican second honeymoon. Very private bungalow, nicely appointed, large bathroom, and huge shower. Grounds are beautiful, trails throughout, with the beginings of a vineyard on the back of the property. Food was absolutely delicious! I had the pan seared snook, it melted in my mouth! Very personal staff and owner. Will definately consider the Zamora when we revisit the beautiful country of Costa Rica!

We stayed for just one night at the end of our 2 week holiday, but wished we could have stayed much longer. Zamora Estate is truly an oasis, a tranquil and luxurious place just a short distance from downtown San Jose, and just 20 minutes from the airport. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable, and have great rustic charm, overlooking ponds and lovely gardens rich in wildlife. The owners are delightful hosts who are very welcoming and made us feel instantly at home. Roman chatted to us about his vines and vineyards and we couldn't help feeling that he is really onto something..... maybe the next big thing in Costa Rica! Ana is a superb cook and we can honestly say we have never tasted any meal quite as delicious as the dinner she prepared for us. We were tempted not to write this review at all, there are some things which are just best kept secret. We hope to be back next year to trya bottle of Zamora Estate's first vintage. We think it will be spectacular.

Room Tip: Try to book room Number 1 for the best view over the pond.

We just had dinner at Zamora estate and stayed the night and it was fabulous. If you are looking to get away from the regular corporate hotels and looking for a real Costa Rican stay with comfort this place should be top of your list. Ana and Roman will take great care of you and you feel like house guests rather than just guests in a hotel. They have beautiful surroundings, over 200 bird species, vineyards and much more.

Ana's food is superb and she gets all her food fresh and organic from local producers and the local markets. You can actually go with her and she will also teach you to cook!!

All in all this place is fabulous and please do not look anywhere else.

Room Tip: Eat there every night!!

We loved our few days at Zamora - really good 5 star accommodation at reasonable prices and Roman and Ana could not have been more helpful. Roman arranged car rental from the Hotel and saved us a lot of hassle (for a more reasonable price than we had been quoted online). They could not have been more helpful and it is a good spot to start or end your trip to Costa Rica, and is easier to get to the airport than from San Jose. It is also close to the main highway that takes you to the west of the country. We were only sorry we didn't have another few nights there to have a good look around the beautiful gardens or enjoy the pool a bit more.
