Perched on a hill in Escazú's Bello Horizonte neighborhood, with a great view of the city, this bed-and-breakfast strikes the right balance between a small inn and a tasteful private residence. The quiet, homey feel draws low-key, mature travelers. The best view is from the sundeck, just off a spacious living room with a couch, a fireplace, and lots of modern art. The apartments and the two "deluxe" rooms have comparable views. Smaller "standard" rooms overlook the surrounding gardens, and aren't nearly as nice. The staff is extremely helpful. It's a bit hard to find, so you may want to take a taxi or call for directions.
