I have just arrived back after spending a week at Hotel Villa Los Candiles.

It was one of the nicest hotel experiences I have had to date. From my late evening arrival to a friendly helpful staff, clean and spacious room, pretty garden, tranquil private environment to my departure in the middle of the night a week later, I was as delighted with the accommodation.

The Hotel Villa Los Candiles was an excellent choice, everybody was great, and the rooms are just beautiful. We enjoyed very much being there. When we arrived we didnt had a laptop to connect the internet, but the officer helped us very friendly in the first moment. Also we needed taxi, some information to San José, and the officer helped us very friendly. Thank you again!

Room Tip: room 11 was a great choice

We stayed at Villa los Candiles when we arrived in Costa Rica. It is a good place to spend your first nights. We had an upgrade to the junior suite which was nice. It was spacious, the bed was really nice and the bathroom was spacious. It was clean and the hotel is wel taken care of. The ladies who make the breakfast are really friendly and make a nice breakfast. The guy at the reception was really helpfull and patience in explaining how it works to take a bus etc.

Santa Ana is is just a village and nothing special. It is easy to take the bus to San Jose it will take you about 20 minutes.

Our usual hotel, about a mile away, was full. Lucky for us - because we found this wonderful little gem hidden behind the Mas x Menos in Santa Ana! It is a bit hard to find, even with a GPS, but it is worth the search. This little inn is impecable and the rooms are well furnished. We stayed in a Jr. Suite tucked in the back. It was spacious and had a very comfortable bed. The bathroom has an interesting configuration and the shower was wonderful! The room came with breakfast, which was good and prepared to order. The pool, though small, is in a cute little garden. The only drawback, as compared to our other hotel choice, is that the parking lot is not enclosed. They do have a full time security guard with a booth at the end of the carport area, so it did feel safe. Staff is friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay at Villa Los Candiles again.

Room Tip: The Jr Suites are worth the upcharge, especially considering you get much more room AND breakfast.

A lovely place to stay. Set in a quiet, upscale neighbourhood, beside a running stream and within easy walking distance of the main street in Santa Ana. The room was spotless, the breakfast delicious and the gardens were pretty. The staff was extremely helpful to me, translating to English when I needed help, ordering take away dinners for me and printing me walking route maps. I will return to Villa Los Candiles in Santa Ana.

Wonderful place, very kind and attentive staff. Nice breakfast, quiet and nice rooms, very cleverly builded.
Peaceful neighborhood, dogs welcomes. MOD during the night.
Extremely clean and well mantained.
My wife and I stayed here already 10 times and we've never been disappointed. Actually every time we need a Hotel in the GAM we stay here. Prices very good.

Room Tip: choose the 1B is bigger, very confortable, like a studio with kitchen, big room

We stayed for a few days and were charmed by this cute boutique hotel. From the owner to the staff, the food, the swimming pool, the room, everything was great. Very peaceful and quiet. Close to everything, the airport, the new highway, shopping, restaurants, etc. We are definitely coming back.
