On our first stay in Grano de Oro, our flight from Miami was nearly 3 hours late and, as a result we only had a very short night in a beautiful and comfortable room in the old part of the hotel. We did not even have time for breakfast before we left in the morning. The room had its own private garden and water feature and the large old-fashioned bathroom was a delight. We returned to the hotel at the end of our stay in Costa Rica when we had more time to enjoy the hotel. We were not allocated a room in the old part of the hotel on this occasion but our room was still excellent, with a pretty small garden and water feature, although perhaps with a little less character than the first room. We had dinner and breakfast in the elegant courtyard restaurant. The food was very good but the service initially was slow and we had to gee-up the waiter. The concierge was very helpful in directing us to a very simple local restaurant for lunch and he was very particular about our taking the appropriate care (no jewellery etc) when walking in San Jose. We have already recommended this hotel to our friends and would stay there again ourselves. Given the nature of the hotel: originally a Victorian Villa, there is no room for a swimming pool etc. Thank you to Imagine Latin America and their excellent local agent: San Germain Tours for arranging this hotel for us.
