Fodor's Review

True to its name, this modern, very comfortable, three-story hotel is awash in bougainvillea on the outside and decorated with an impressive collection of Costa Rican art on the inside. With 8 acres of lawns, and mature trees laden with bromeliads and orchids, you might even forget that you're only 20 minutes from San José. Spacious, carpeted rooms have plasma TVs, laptop-size safety boxes, and coffeemakers, comfortable mattresses, fine linens, and screened windows to let in cool breezes. Upper-floor rooms have a balcony. Brilliant stained-glass windows and brightly colored tropical art decorate the lobby, which also displays an oddly beautiful collection of local geodes and minerals. The elegant, large restaurant offers a menu of slightly old-fashioned Continental cuisine, including very good desserts, and the intimate bar-lounge often has piano music on weekends. With environmentally friendly practices, this hotel sets an example for sustainable tourism.
