We spent our first night of our 7 night stay at Casa Amanacer. We chose to pick a place to stay that would get us farther from the airport so we'd have more time to get to seeing the country the next day. It is about 45 minutes from the airport. We did use GPS to get there and our... More

We spent the first night of our two week holiday in Costa Rica at Casa Amanecer and we couldn't have asked for a better start to the holiday. Driving to the property in the dark and the rain we wondered if we shouldn't have stayed at a hotel near the airport, but the welcome we received from Helena and her... More

This was our first stay at a B&B. It is just outside of San Ramon easy to find with Waze. A 45 minute drive from the San Jose airport. The hostess made us feel very welcome - like an aunt. She cooked a wonderful breakfast and arranged our coffee tour. The gardens were full of butterflies and hummingbirds. We loved... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights with our toddler in August. It was the low season and one night we were the only people there. It was a beautiful location and close to town. However, a car would be highly recommended. The hostess was wonderful and helped us with some laundry. They had a pack and play... More

Kind, welcoming, hospitable owners. Delicious breakfast. Lovely sitting area. Clean, modern, tasteful rooms. Quiet area. Truly a piece of paradise in so many ways. Can't say enough good things. Perfect solo, as a couple, or family. Just make it happen to visit Casa Amanecer!!

Clean, peaceful, beautiful setting where you're treated like family. Excellent views from jardín and picture windows in each modern room. Balmy outdoor or indoor dining. Conveniently located near San Ramon. Delicious breakfast. Latino hospitality. Wifi for business or pleasure. I'd come back here in a heartbeat. Helen and company were terrific! Very relaxing. What memories are made of.

We wanted to get a short distance out of San Jose after flying in and renting a car. San Ramon is pretty close, but gave us a first opportunity to try driving Costa Rica.

This is a stunning contemporary home on the fringes of a coffee plantation. Timber ceilings, polished screed floors. A kind hostess and bountiful breakfast. Our room has a triple bunk and king size bed - perfect for families. A good base en route to Arenal.
