Fodor's Review

When they need to make a city run, many beach-living expats head straight for this quiet B&B on the outskirts of Escazú, and you should, too. Rooms make nice use of local hardwoods and traditional South American art, and the main building serves as a gathering place with a large sitting area, comfortable chairs, and a fireplace. The inn is surrounded by gardens, and at night you can see the lights of San José twinkling to the east, though just three of the rooms

take advantage of the view. The inn is at the end of a narrow driveway with an unassuming gate, but you'll see a sign if you've found the right place.

Too Far Off the Beaten Track

We stayed here b/c I didn't want to go into culture shock our 1st night in Costa Rica. But this place was a little too far out in the boonies for my taste. They say town is only 10 min. walk away but you have to remember the return is all uphill. Very few options at night if you don't have transportation - you'll have to get a taxi b/c trying to find this place in the dark would be ridiculous. Room was okay, a bit dark. The large stone tiled

bathroom was straight out of the Flintstones; service is excellent though; staff speaks excellent english, extremely helpful. Breakfast is included but there is no restaurant on site, a definite downer for me. But the staff is happy to order delivery for you.
