The Grano de Oro was our last stop on a two-week trip to Costa Rica. We arrived at the Grano de Oro on March 10th, around 10:30 am, after flying to San Jose from Punta Islita. This was my wife’s first trip to Costa Rica and my fourth. We also stayed at Hotel Manatus, El Silencio Lodge, and the Hotel Punta Islita, all of which I have also reviewed.
We only stayed at the Grano de Oro for one night, but it was so outstanding it deserves its own review! The converted Victorian mansion is just fabulous from top to bottom. There are photos on all the walls in the passageways that were extremely interesting, and I wished for some kind of information about them but nothing was available. They were all taken over the last 100 years or so and showed so much about the development of Costa Rica.
We had booked the special garden suite on the first floor, and it was ready for us upon arrival. The gareden suite was all the we expected. It was spacious, well appointed, clean, and most of all, it felt like home. The bathroom with its huge Jacuzzi was perfect.
We originally planned to venture into town for the afternoon to visit some museums, however we ended up changing our plans and decided to stay in at the hotel. This turned out to be a great decision. We ended up having lunch and dinner, two of our best meals in Costa Rica, at the hotel's restaurant which is world class and as good as any you will find in the world's culinary capitals. Absolutely outstanding!
After experiencing the level of comfort and service at the Grano de Oro, we will absolutely not return to Costa Rica without making it our first and last stop. Bravo Grano de Oro! Thank you so much!
All the best,
Roberto and Juanita
