“Outstanding. True Luxury.”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for two nights on our March 2013 trip to Costa Rica. The rooms were modern, beautifully decorated, luxuriously comfortable, and super clean. The hotel grounds and pool are breathtaking, with an incredible view over Escazu and Santa Ana. The staff were super friendly and very helpful. On our first morning in Costa Rica the free breakfast was superb.... giant fresh fruit plate, freshly ground dark roast coffee - etc looking over the valley, listening to the chicharras hum in the trees! We can't say enough good things about SIWO, the restaurant at Ringle, not only a great atmosphere, but the best meals we had during our 10 days in Costa Rica - the chef is first rate as are the wait staff. Great wine and modern world cuisine with a Costa Rican twist. All in all I would highly recommend this resort to couples, families, singles, business travellers - it really caters to all. We will surely go back and tell our friends about Ringle.

We are delighted to hear what a wonderful time you had staying at our resort. We spent months designing a menu that would not only cater to young and old but also local and international preferences. The cuisine at Ringle Resort is truly world class, and the feedback we have been receiving from our guests, as well as the locals, has been outstanding. May we recommend the ‘Chicken Pesto Pasta’ to all future guests – it has been our most popular menu item the past several months. We really appreciate the positive feedback on the restaurant, and hope to be able to serve you again in the near future.

Our recent stay at the Ringle Resort was nothing short of fabulous! This small hotel conveys such a feeling of tranquility, luxury and ease. It is a stunningly beautiful place with it's glorious views and impeccable park like grounds and pool area. The staff are all helpful, enthusiastic and friendly and our room was very comfortable and luxurious. The restaurant offered a beautiful atmosphere and some of the best cuisine that we ate on our entire vacation. In fact, it was so good that we rarely ate out! It was wonderfully romantic to savor a good bottle of wine and a delicious meal while taking in the dramatic sunsets from the balcony that overlooked the pool and the grounds.

This is definitely is the kind of place one could come back to over and over again. We look forward to our next visit.

We spent months designing a resort that would instantly give our visitors a deep sense of relaxation and serenity the moment they drove through our gates and onto the grounds of Ringle Resort. Our property is truly unique given the fact we are located right on the major roads connecting Escazu and San Jose, yet the property feels completely removed from urban civilization due to the breathtaking beauty and sheer size of the tropical landscaping and greenery. The pictures of our property convey this point beautifully, making a bottle of wine and good company the perfect compliment to these stunning grounds. We love seeing our customers drinking and laughing, as they unwind and settle down while overlooking the entire Escazu valley from the pool decks which offer some of the best views.

I stayed Ringle Resort for 4 nights on a business trip in March 2013. This resort is exceptional! Such attention to detail is usually only found in a 5 Star resort. The grounds are elegantly landscaped and maintained with breath taking views overlooking Santa Ana; the staff graciously cordial and make every effort to make your stay as optimal as possible; the rooms are extremely well appointed from what felt like orthopedic bedding, HD flatscreen TV, and multiple headed showers. I dined in the restaurant overlooking the pool area and city vista; the chef introduced himself and prepared a delicious dinner; and the wine list worth mentioning as well. Overall, I have rarely felt a sense of feeling at home, so far away from home! I will return and recommend others without hesitation to vist the Ringle! Dr. M.J.S, Scottsdale, AZ

We’re thrilled to hear your visit to Ringle Resort was met with great satisfaction. We spent nearly a year remodeling the entire resort, appointing each room with plush furniture and bedding while installing state of the art showering systems considered the best on the market. Most rooms feature multiple showerheads, including the heavily sought after rainfall showerhead. Furthermore, all rooms feature brand new flat screen HDTV’s and iHomes for their radio/alarm/music player. Our hotel was recently appointed as a 5 star resort by the Costa Rican tourism board (ICT). This has already been reflected on some of the major online booking sites, and we’re working hard to have that reflected across the board throughout all Internet outlets. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon!

We loved this hotel. We stayed there with our 4 year old son and it was great. The staff were super friendly and helpful. They organized us an early (5am) taxi with a packed breakfast. The pool area was lovely - only wish the pool was heated because it was way too cold to swim in! The rooms were tastefully restored and very clean. I felt like we were staying in a mansion! The gardens were exquisite, perfect for kids to run around in! Would definitely stay there again.

Customer service is always our number one focus. Even if it means bringing in our staff members earlier than usual to pack you a to-go breakfast, we realize it’s the little things that can make the biggest impact on your overall experience when staying with us. At this moment, the temperature of our pool is 80 degrees, which we believe is ideal for this time of the year. Every business has an obligation to minimize its environmental impact on this Earth. Considering the pool - at its deepest part - is over 15 feet deep, the energy required to heat the pool an extra few degrees would take an enormous amount of electricity. We apologize if you felt it was too cold, but please understand we have to be conscious of our environmental footprint.

You will be amazed at this awesome property! Everything was first class - from the linen to the rain shower head. This small exquisitely landscaped converted mansion has all you need to relax, meet business associates, or await to travel other parts of Costa Rica. It sits atop a mountainside overlooking the suburbs of San Jose. It is about a 20 minute drive from the airport in the city of Santa Ana. The service is as spectacular as the views. I found it difficult to get a picture that would accurately capture it. There is an onsite restaurant that offers a great selection for every meal of the day. My favorite was the complimentary breakfast fresh fruit platter and the pancakes. I wish I could stay here forever!!

Ringle Resort takes great pride in our recent accomplishments during our 1 year remodel of the entire property. The rooms are exquisitely appointed, the grounds are abounding with tropical beauty, and the food we serve is world-class. Very recently, the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT) gave us a FIVE star rating. Only a limited number of hotels in all of Costa Rica have earned the prestigious 5 star award, and we are thrilled to be a part of this exclusive club. We work tirelessly to deliver the best experience possible for all our customers and encourage anyone who has not stayed with us to give us a try. We guarantee your visit to Costa Rica will be a lasting memory. Thank you for an amazing review and we hope to serve you again soon here at Ringle Resort.

We stayed at Ringle in January 2013 for 5 nights. This is a top notch boutique hotel. The rooms are wonderful, with great beds and thoughtful finishing & touches. Room 101 is truly spectacular. Katia and staff are very welcoming and helpful from arranging tours to transportation. The onsite restaurant is a true "miradore" with awesome views day and night, and very good food and service. As mentioned, the views are amazing from this hotel, due to the location high up on a mountain. This makes it a bit windy and also quite steep for walking into Santa Ana. Not a big issue as there is an adjacent public bus stop and taxis are easy to get. Overall, a very special hotel and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 101 is truly spectacular with a large sitting room, king bed, 2 TVs and wonderful views.

Ringle Resort was built to provide its customers the ultimate experience in up-scale lodging, fine dining, and lasting tranquility. We have built a resort unlike any other in the Escazu area, and we are certain if you stay with us you’ll never try another hotel again. The breath taking beauty of the property accompanied with our outstanding staff members makes Ringle Resort one of the few premier hotels in Costa Rica.

Thank you for such an outstanding review! We work tirelessly to ensure every customer has just as great an experience as you had. Given the small number of rooms on our property - 9 to be exact - we are able to develop personal relationships with almost all our guests. This allows us to cater to each individual in a special way that’s not found at any of the bigger hotels or chain brands. Please come and visit us again soon!
