Reviewed 31 March 2014

We stayed in this lavish hillside retreat for 6 nights and it was a memorable, enjoyable stay. The description and pictures of the resort provided on the website are current and accurate. Our bungalow was separate from the main building, very quiet and private. Like the rooms in the main building, the bungalow interioir was comfortable, lavish and simply gorgeous. The grounds and swimming pool were stunning. The view of the Central Valey from the open air eating area was breathtaking. Rodney and all the staff were very friendly and helpful in every respect. The cost was very reasonable. We would definitely return and recommend to friends. Alena and George, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Room Tip: Romms with the pool side view are the best rooms (but depending what you require, the bungalow may b...

We are truly pleased to hear what an incredible opinion you formed at Ringle Resort during your stay with us. The sheer beauty of the property speaks for itself, and the location is ideal because you are still in the city, yet you feel like your staying in a tropical paradise. Our core business philosophy revolves around providing the highest standard of customer service, and I am glad we meet those expectations during your stay. For many of us working here, the best part about coming to work - besides all the amazing friendships we form meeting amazing guests like yourself - are the magnificent views that never seem to get old. Thank you for being a guest of ours, and we hope to serve you again in the near future.

We stayed at Ringle Resort twice in February 2014. The Room was wonderful, the bed was very comfortable.The staff and management were very accommodating, friendly and helpful. Katia was great! she goes out of her way to make sure you have everything you need set up transfers etc. The grounds were just beautiful. The pool was wonderful. The pictures were current and very accurate. The view from the open air dining room was amazing at night with all the lights of the city. The cost was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this resort to friends etc. We want to thank Katia and the staff! We will be back some time in the future. Diana & Don Belak , Eureka, California

There are a number of eloquent 5 star resorts in the area – including Ringle Resort – yet for the moment we have the lowest priced rooms of any 5 star resort in San Jose, making us an incredible value for our guests. In fact, our rates are lower or similarly priced to many of the 4 and 3 star resorts in the surrounding area, leaving many of our guests pondering the same question: why stay anywhere else? Nevertheless, we love hearing what a great time you had staying with us, and how the service was top notch. We will be waiting with open arms when you return on your next visit. See you hopefully soon!

My partner and I spent 9 nights here overall with 2 trips away in between. The smallness of this resort - 10 rooms - makes for a very unique experience. Rodney and katia were extremely helpful in organising day trips taxis and generally flexible about most things to suit individual needs. It was a lovely place to come home to at the end of the day. Alessandro, night manager, Ricardo and Marie cruz in the restaurant as well as Sandra and connie who cleaned and did the washing all provided wonderful service - unobtrusive but friendly. We felt most fortunate as other parents who travelled to the U17 FIFA women's World Cup in Costa Rica stayed in much larger hotels with less personal service. All in all a wonderful experience. Thank you katia and how lovely to meet your family on the day before we left.

Compared to most hotels, we are certainly on the smaller side which provides our guests with a more intimate and personal connection with staff and possibly other guests. In addition, guests find it particularly easy to unwind and relax in the tropical gardens we have now spent over a decade fine-tuning to make it a truly special environment where people love to spend their days lying around. We are thrilled to hear what a close bond you formed with many of the employees here at the Ringle, as this is always our goal: making guests feel like family. Thank you for staying with us and we hope you come visit again in the future!

We stayed at the Ringle Resort in Santa Ana, Costa Rica during our recent vacation Feb/Mar 2014. Our resort stay was very nice! Beautiful room with plenty of space & comfort. The weather was in the low 80s -- perfect time of year. The view was most enjoyable... and the pictures provided were accurate and current. Friendly and helpful staff made our time memorable. Whether it was to book a tour or get instructions on the local bus...the staff was always smiling and willing to assist. Tours conveniently picked us up at the Ringle Resort which made life easy. The restaurant at the Ringle Resort had many delicious choices and the outdoor seating was perfect with the fireplace, if needed. We would definitely return and recommend to friends. Thank you, Katia & the entire staff!

We can't begin to thank you enough for such a warm and endearing comment. We work very hard - day and night - to deliver the best service we possibly can. It's even more rewarding when people like yourself take the time to acknowledge our hard work, and this is exactly why we're in the hospitality business. We love the satisfaction of being the best and delivering the highest quality of personalized service. It was a pleasure getting to know you and we hope to see you folks again in the near future!

There aren't enough nice things that I can say about this place. The staff, management, and owner were all so incredibly helpful and personable. The accommodations were spectacular and lavish. There was absolutely nothing even remotely "budget" about this place, but the cost was great too. The entire location is spectacularly beautiful, and every meal we had (quite a few) was far beyond what we expected. Even the complimentary breakfast was simple yet delicious.

I wish we had spent our entire trip here, but we did also stay at the Hotel Grano De Oro. While the Grano de Oro was nice, we definitely missed the Ringle Resort very soon after arriving.

The resort is on the outskirts of the city a bit, so while you have the seclusion and amazing view, you may need to have a taxi on speed dial. Though the owner himself was amazingly generous enough to help us get to/from our destination, when needed.

Room Tip: The casita is a separate building that is closer to the road. You'll have more privacy but may h...

I stayed at Ringle Resort for ten nights. During this time I had extensive work done with Dr. Garita. Had six implants put in my lower jaw. After the surgery I wasn't felling well at all. I could only eat soft foods for seven day and nights. The reason lm telling this story is for the wonderful treatment I received from the staff at Hotel Ringle. Katia & Rodney helped me over and beyond all my needs. The restaurant staff was fantastic, the chef made me food that wasn't on the menu that I could eat with no lower teeth. And I might add it was very tasty also. Everyone was just wonderful. The grounds were just amazingly beautiful, I had plenty of time to walk the grounds as I traveled nowhere. I spent most of my time walking the grounds and relaxing and healing. The final thing I want to add is this hotel is exclusive and very safe. It is located in a high in part of town. I will definitely be returning to Hotel Ringle in four months after the implants heal. Sheldon A.

Room Tip: If you need a English speaking cab driver get Katia to call Frank Hernandez for you.

Katia, our operations manager, is instrumental to customer support here at Ringle Resort. She’s lived a life dedicated towards helping others, and has an extensive background in the hospitality industry. Whenever a customer needs assistance in terms of transportation, making reservations, or even food requests etc. we usually direct them towards Katia. She will work relentlessly on the issues at hand until each customer request is fulfilled. We also love to hear how much you enjoyed the greenery and your daily walks, and hope you had a speedy recovery. Thank you for staying with us, and please come visit us again on your next trip to Costa Rica.

My daughter, mother in law, husband and I stayed at the Ringle Resort overnight before leaving on a Panama Canal cruise in January 2014. We stayed in the two bedroom garden villa and I wish we could have stayed longer. It was spacious and comfortable. It even had its own laundry room. More importantly, this hotel felt more like an exclusive B&B because of the relatively small number of rooms and the high level of personal service. The view of the city is also amazing. It is a little out of the way, but worth the drive.

Room Tip: The Garden Villa was great. Like a private house. Two nice bedrooms and bathrooms, a good size kit...
