Arriving at the Alta Hotel is like arriving at some sort of "modern" medieval mansion. With massively high ceilings and quirky (and obviously high end) decor, if you were promised luxury by your travel agent or online descriptions you will NOT be disappointed.
The service also was second to none. The staff were always ready and waiting to help. From calling our room to make sure we had anything to bringing our breakfast to our private balcony, I was thoroughly impressed throughout. They even made a wonderful arrangement for dinner under that hugely impressive Guanacaste tree.... AWESOME.
That brings me to the food... The BEST part of our stay. My wife has shiitake mushroom and goats cheese ravioli alla vodka and I had seared seabass and mixed shell fish - OH MY GOD!!! Incredible! We have eaten in some fantastic restaurants and La Luz @ Alta Hotel is up there with the best of them (if not thee best).
Bottom line - If you live in San Jose and want somewhere special to take your loved one or if you need to spend a night or two at the start or end of your vacation in Costa Rica look no further than Alta Hotel!!!
Did I mention the views are INCREDIBLE!!! :)
