“This is absolute GEM, wouldn't stay anywhere else”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

We had never been to Costa Rica before and deliberated a few hotels in the Escazu/Santa Ana area (including the Marriott). We finally chose the Ringle Resort and were so glad. It is an incredibly beautiful hotel, with stunning design and woodwork. The resort had just been newly renovated with the most meticulous attention to detail.

The staff are very personal and second to none. On the day we were leaving, we had at 6am flight and therefore had to leave the hotel at 4am. As our stay came with daily deluxe breakfast, the cook put together two beautiful to-go containers with a selection of fresh local fruits and cheeses for each of us to take with us that morning on our flight (they were waiting in the fridge for us at 4am!).

On a separate note, this hotel is in a much nicer area than where the Marriott is (which isn't the nicest part of San Jose).

I honestly cannot imagine a nicer hotel - we wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else if we returned to the area.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautiful. We have stayed here twice, in two different rooms. I've posted...

On our return from a few days in Nicaragua we had planned to stay at our usual hotel in San Jose, but found it was full.

We did not want to stay near the airport or downtown and wanted somewhere quiet and peaceful, A web-search turned up a new hotel in the Escazu area of the city that sounded interesting. They are still working on construction and expansion from what was originally designed as a Bed and Breakfast. But what they have is a beautiful start on a resort that is sure to be a favorite soon with discriminating travelers.

Our room was fairly small but had a king size bed, very nice bathroom and a large closet with a fridge. The mattress on our bed was the most comfortable I have found in a hotel in years. It was every bit as good as ours at home. We found the room to be clean and pleasant.

The resort has a large and very inviting pool and a wonderful view down into the valley. They also have a library with leather chairs and shelves full of books. Marcia spent two days reading a novel and just plain relaxing.

One very important feature of this hotel is the staff. Everyone was very friendly and ready to help in any way they could,

This hotel fills a need for this part of the city. It is close to CIMA Medical Center, the MultiPlaza Mall and all the shopping and Restaurants of Santa Ana and Escazu area. The Taj Mahal Indian Restuarant (one of our favorites) is less than one kilometer from the hotel.

I stayed at Ringle Resort while I had my dental work done at nearby DentaVac.Both were superb. Ringle Resort is probably the most beautiful property in the region. It's truly a calm tranquil oasis with an unsurpassable view of the city. It's a gem waiting to be discovered. The staff were kind and helpful and we were made to feel like family. The hotel itself is magnificent. Small enough to be focused and considerate of its patrons, yet large in its offerings of beauty and comfort. Our only hassle was the closed gate on our first morning. It's important to let the manager know if you have an early morning appointment. We will certainly return!

Room Tip: If you are traveling as a couple ask for a suite. For dental work any of the rooms will do.
