“Best of all our lodging in Costa Rica!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

We stayed here for our last night in Costa Rica, and it was definitely the best experience we had during our whole trip. We were warmly welcomed by Carlos, the owner, who was genuinely friendly and personable and looked out for our well-being.

Los Volcanes is on a gated property off a quiet street and had a parking space available for our rental car. We stayed in a lovely, clean room with a couple of beds, a table, and a TV. The bathroom was the nicest of our entire trip, and it even included a mini hair dryer mounted on the wall! Our room was on the ground floor, which opened onto the patio and the well-kept grounds. Carlos made sure we knew about the balcony on the 3rd floor as well, where we enjoyed a bottle of wine while watching the sunset. Breakfast was delicious and filling. It's walkable to San Joaquin, and Heredia is also very close (though not walkable). The staff is all very friendly and helpful, and Victor will patiently engage in very slow conversations in Spanish with your limited language skills. Los Volcanes is very close to the airport, and is a great option to stay at on your way in and out of San Jose. If you were to stay longer and study Spanish, this would be a great place to meet other students of all ages and backgrounds and feel at home during your stay.

In terms of value for our money as well as wonderfulness of the owner and staff, Los Volcanes definitely tops the list.

I have visited several B & B Vista Los Volcanoes ... and attention is spectacular! This last visit I made with my wife and was no different, each person with a concept unbeatable service. Each room has a special concept, comfortable and very clean. The amazing view, perfect location make it always an excellent choice to stay at home.

This is a lovely little B&B on a quiet side street. The rooms are spacious, clean, well-maintained, comfortable, and have all the amenities you need: A/C, hot shower, table and chairs, comfortable bed. They provide a generous breakfast and take the time to get to know you; you can get to know the other guests as well.
The upstairs rooms are quite a bit larger and have a balcony. The management is very friendly and accommodating.

Los Volcanes is a gem! My wife and I stayed there a week, while we took courses at the nearby Centro Panamericano de Idiomas (CPI). We had a spacious studio apartment, with a kitchenette, two bathrooms and a balcony. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the B&B is located in a quiet street about a 15 minute walk from the center of San Joaquin de Flores (and about 20-25 minutes walk from CPI). The staff here is wonderful--warm, accomodating and friendly--and the owner, Carlos goes out of his way to make his guests feel at home. The included breakfasts, served in a little outdoor patio, are big and delicious, and usually include "gallo pinto" (the traditional dish of Costa Rica), eggs, toast, fruit, and a delicious fresh fruit drink made up, variously, of mangos, starfruit, bananas, watermelon, and others. We enjoyed our stay so much that, at the end of our stay in Costa Rica, we came back to Los Volcanes for our last night before leaving for home from the airport, which is only about 15 minutes away. We highly recommend Los Volcanes, and hope to return there ourselves.

Room Tip: For longer stays (like we had) or for a family, you might want to request one of the two studio apar...

B&B Vista Los Volcanes has become our favorite place to stay when we visit San Jose. It is extremely clean. Carlos is friendly, professional and helpful. He, along with his staff, go the extra mile to make sure the guests are taken care of. Also, the breakfast is great. Excellent value for an excellent B&B!

WE stayed there for two nights. It is a quite nice place with a fantastic view on volcanos. The room was nice and clean with two bathrooms. It was more than we needed but we got it anyway because of a very reasonable price. The owner is a very friendly person and speaks fluent English. All the staff was friendly. Breakfast was good. i would definitely stay here again if we ever go to the area.

We stayed at Los Volcanes for two weeks during our language school enrollment, toured the country for a month, and came back to Los Volcanes for our final week in the country. We highly recommend this B&B, as the physical facilities, as well as the staff and owner, are the best of all those we visited. Exceptionally clean, very modern, and staff willing to do whatever you need to have an interesting visit. Need a cab and help communicating with driver? They will do it. Need reservations at a restaurant or on a tour, they will help you do it. The breakfasts are excellent, and tailored to your needs. Need transportation? It can be arranged. They even have names for the many birds that frequent the courtyard, and ensure that they have fresh food daily. A wonderful place!
If you go, be sure to spend some time in the third floor living area, with excellent views of the entire valley and the volcanos.

Room Tip: The top floor apartment balconies are great for the views. As insects are practically nonexistent...
