Reviewed 9 May 2013

I spent two nights here while on business. The bed was very comfortable. The rooms are very spacious and the shower is not only big, but also has a bench & window on each side. My husband accompanied me and the front desk staff was very helpful in organizing a tour for him while I worked. Breakfast was in a small, garden area. Eggs made to order, freshly baked cake/bread and fresh fruit along with really good coffee were some of the choices. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I travel to Costa Rica a few times a year and always try to stay at Los Candiles. Everything about it is inviting - from the friendly service, great breakfast, and comfort. They have some wonderful suites with refrigerator and microwave. Very comfortable beds, too.

My only problem with writing this review is that it may become so popular that I won't be able to get a room the next time I go to Santa Ana! Great for them, but bad for me.

p.s. I do not generally write reviews, but have made an exception for Los Candiles. Truly a great value and a great place to stay.

This hotel is very convenient to the international airport, very safe, secure and in a nice area. It is also quiet and has a helpful staff. Very Costa Rican? No. But if you're in a transitional state and want to be near the airport, in or out of the country, it's perfect. The staff at the front desk is fluent in English and very helpful in finding a local bank and/or a nearby restaurant. A nice kitchenette and wonderful breakfast. A quiet neighborhood.

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.
