We stayed here for 2 nights in a 3rd floor garden facing room. Although the room could have been in any hotel anywhere in the world, we still loved the room, the very comfortable beds, the well equipped bathroom and the balcony with the most amazing view over the gardens. Unlike on the coast, the temperature at night is perfect...

This hotel was about 30 minutes drive from the airport and made a very comfortable overnight stay on te day we arrived. Our room was fine , the gardens well worth walking around. The hotel is not near any local shops or restaurants so we ate in the hotel restaurant and found the food to be pretty good

This is a lovely hotel with beautiful gardens. It's located outside of San Jose, the hotel can help you make arrangements for tours of the city (or other tours). The breakfast is excellent, as are lunch and dinner. Staff is helpful and friendly. There is a good exercise room, which we used, and an outdoor pool, which we did not...

From arrival to departure we were treated like honored guests with close but not intrusive attention. We originally planned a 5-night stay at Hotel Bougainvillea, but we were on a due-diligence trip to explore the Central Valley of Costa Rica as a place to set down new roots. As that exploration evolved we had to cut our stay down to...
