Fodor's Review

Set amid fields of green coffee, this exclusive, hilltop bed-and-breakfast hideaway has a much-deserved reputation as one of the country's sumptuous splurges. The Gaudí-esque main building has a soaring two-story atrium and white-stucco arches, set among tropical flowers and shaded by massive fig trees. Rooms are filled with interesting artistic flourishes, as well as such luxuries as Jacuzzi bathtubs and 100% bamboo sheets. The spacious two-story suite, popular with honeymooners, is out of a fairy tale, with a spiral staircase with a carved-serpent handrail leading up to a romantic, window-lined tower bedroom. Newest to the room mix here is the sumptuous, secluded El Cielo suite, with its own entrance through the gardens. The owners work hard to make the hotel as eco-friendly as possible. Prix-fixe gourmet dinners are available at chic El Tigre Vestido restaurant, but lunch on the terrace, with its spectacular view of San José down in the valley and the Escazú mountains beyond, is a better value. After a day of touring, guests can unwind in a full-service spa.
