This is an amazing hotel that is quite unique and makes you feel like you are waking up in the rain forest. Loved everything about our stay and only wish it was longer. If you want a great hotel that is close to the airport but doesn't feel like you are in the city, this is the place. The owners are amazing and helped us so much. The breakfast was also lovely. Great hotel!

Hotel Pibi Boreal is peaceful, comfortable, clean and welcoming. We saw a Keel Billed Tucan fly by our balcony on our first morning! The breakfast is delicious and the views are beautiful.

This cute hotel is truly a gem! Tucked in a forest setting close to airport (15 min ) it has just what you need to make you feel right at home. Family owned & run gives it a “welcome home” vibe. So glad to have stayed there! Gracias

Totally tranquil and relaxing to stay right before or after a flight. It's tucked away in the mountains only 20 mins from the San Jose airport. The owners are super friendly and very accommodating. It's forever now my secret spot every time I visit Costa Rica.

Just out of the hustle and bustle of the city is this little oasis in the trees. It was a wonderful place to stay for our last night in Costa Rica before flying out. We loved the breakfast out on the porch overlooking the trees. We had a wonderful stay!!

Pibi Boreal is a perfect peaceful oasis close to the airport…the views across the jungle river valley from each room are fabulous. Breakfast is brought to your room to be eaten on your private room deck. I used the airport transfer option both directions and that made my stay that much easier. Mathieu and Nidia are interesting and gracious hosts and the property is beautiful and well maintained. I will stay here again!

A perfect place to wake up in your first morning of a Costa Rica adventure. The complimentary airport transfer was so easy despite being at 11pm. Breakfast is great. Also stayed for our final night of our holiday and it was so easy, our breakfast choice from before was remembered and the friendly staff encapsulated just how amazing Costa Rica is and how easy and friendly the country is to travel in.
