Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This was the perfect place to stay for our visit to San Jose - the rooms are more like spacious fully furnished apartments, including everything you would need for an extended stay (full kitchen, appliance, pots and pans, etc.). The location is central in Escazu, breakfast is great (either Gallo Pinto or Continental), internet works great, and the staff was attentive and extremely helpful with our special requests. Perfect for working remotely for a few weeks, or for a short stay. We liked it so much that we came back the end of our stay in Costa Rica.
