“Arrive Tranquil in Costa Rica”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Just "around the corner" of San Jose Airport (about 15 min. drive by taxi). Very nice mini suite with good bedroom with good bed, excellent bathroom, mini living room, mini kitchen, good breakfast at the pool, very nice people. Fair price for good quality. I recommend this place for acclimatization after a long journey to Costa Rica, before starting to explore the whole country. When traveling again from The Netherlands to Costa Rica, I will return to stay again at least my first night and day at Hotel Villa Los Candiles!

The hotel was clean and as described. The rooms we booked were not available, so we got much better rooms with a salon and kitchen for the same price.
Breakfast was very good and worth more than we paid for it through our online reservation.
One negative point is that the air conditioners are very noisy and hard to sleep if you have to use them.
Bathroom is in two parts and very spacious. WiFi worked well and is secured. Almost no mosquitoes.
Overall was a very pleasant experience.

Room Tip: All rooms have only patio doors, no windows, so the first floor simple rooms go out on the ground fl...

We stayed for a week recently and were very impresssed. The staff are friendly and very helpful, they speak excellent English. Our room was spotless, we had a lovely bathroom and kitchenette as well. There is a small pool and a peaceful garden. You can walk to shops and cash points in a few minutes which is useful. The hotel staff happily called taxis for us whenever we ventured out on sightseeing trips. A lovely well run hotel.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the garden

I spent most of two weeks in and out of this beautiful little hotel in a tranquil corner of Santa Ana. Everyone was kind and welcoming: I was on my own (a UWC parent) and I felt very well looked after. The first room was huge, with a fridge and basic kitchen facilities- very useful for hungry teenagers. The second room I had was smaller, without the kitchen, but still spotless, peaceful and restful. Breakfasts were magical- the breakfast lady cooks superb omelettes and gallo pinto, with lovely hot coffee and loads of fresh fruit. The swimming 'pool' was very small, but still pleasant to sit beside and admire the resident wildlife in the peaceful garden. There are plenty of lovely restaurants in Santa Ana, but it is best to get a taxi to and fro in the evenings.

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family

This was my first time staying here, but definitely, not the last time. This place has everything I was looking for: Great people, great service and great food. The place to stay when visiting San Jose. If I could say something negative it's that the pool is super small...but who goes to Costa Rica to get on a pool anyways?

They are the best.
