Ringle Resort Hotel & Spa
Ranked #3 of 5 Santa Ana B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We had an early flight from SJO, so we stayed at this hotel the night before. Many of the hotels in the San Jose area seem sketch, but this hotel was a perfect retreat. The staff was absolutely amazing. Alexandro printed our boarding passes for us, helped us get directions to the rental car drop off point, and did everything that he could to make us feel welcome. The food at the restaurant was delish!! This is a quiet hotel with only about 10 rooms and you have a beautiful view of the city. Next time I visit I will be staying here again!

This place is absolutely beautiful. We felt like we were pampered guests staying at a celebrity's private home. I've stayed a lot of different kind of establishments all over the world, and I've paid 5–6x more a night for upscale lodgings than I paid at Ringle Resort, but I don't think I've ever stayed in so lovely a room. Every detail, from the huge 2-person shower to the perfectly position balcony, to the wonderful pool and overlooking restaurant, was top-notch.

Unfortunately, we only spent one night here — the last night of a week-long adventure of roughing it out in the jungle. If I had it to do all over again, I'd want to extend my stay here and just relax.

This is the perfect spot for couples looking for a romantic get-away.

The price is astonishingly low. As in, better book a stay now before the management wises up and starts charging the rates they could easily get for this property.

Room Tip: The King Suite room is worth every penny — it's a steal.

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. In addition, we made extensive use of crown molding, expensive stones and wood finishes that combine to create the ultimate relaxing and comforting experience in each room. Our resort is a honeymoon paradise, and we love treating every guest like family so they leave with every desire to come back as soon as possible. Thank you for staying with us and we couldn't be more excited for the high praise you have given us.

Spent three wonderful days at this fantastic hotel before flying back to Madrid after our honeymoon. The staff were helpful (printed our boarding cards for us), attentive (saw that my wife was drinking from a bottle of Zero by the pool and brought her a glass with ice without being asked) and very eager to please (fixed a problem quickly and efficiently after previous guests had broken the switch on the bedside lamp - you people know who you are!).

Our flight wasn't until the evening so they even let my wife borrow an empty room to get changed in after our final day's excursion before we left for the airport.

The rooms (the suites especially) are amazing as are the views from the restaurant.

My only regret is not writing down the name of the house wine and thinking that I'd be able to remember it. No amount of Google searches brings up 'Caminos' so I wonder if someone would be good enough to remind me of its name because it was lovely (and I don't like alcohol usually!).

All in all a five star experience and the best of the three fantastic (and they were all FANTASTIC) hotels we stayed in while in Costa Rica (the other two being The Beacon Escazú and Issimo Suites in Quepos).

Our staff works very hard to ensure our customers are completely satisfied during their stay at Ringle Resort. When customers leave us such wonderful reviews, it’s very rewarding and lets us know we are doing a great job. We were delighted to hear your experience here at Ringle Resort was met with high praise, and I tried finding the same bottle of wine you had mentioned in your review. The problem is we are always receiving new bottles of wine, so unfortunately I was not able to find the exact bottle you were referring too. My apologies. However, we still thank you for staying with us and we hope you com visit us again soon!

We had the good fortune to find the beautiful Ringle Resort in San Jose. The rooms were lovely and large. The people that worked there were beyond helpful. Katia helped us with every detail of our trip before we arrived and the restaurant stayed opened to accommadate our late arrival. We wish that we were there longer!

The Ringle Resort was absolutely beautiful, and my boyfriend and I really enjoyed our week long stay. We were lucky enough to stay in the casita, which included an entire kitchen, dining room, laundry room, living room with a large sectional, and of course a bedroom and en suite bathroom with a huge shower with rainfall shower heads. Everything is extremely clean and updated. All of the staff is extremely helpful, friendly, and approachable. They really do anything they can to please their guests. The restaurant, although it is a little on the pricey side, is tasty and has beautiful views of San Jose. I would definitely recommend this hotel to someone who wants a quiet and peaceful stay on the outskirts of the city.

The casita provides a unique room at the Ringle Resort where privacy is unmatched along with great amenities like 2 separate bedrooms complete with their own lavish bathrooms, a kitchen, living room, dining room and even your own porch.

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.

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.
