My wife and I stayed at the Grano De Oro twice in February 2009. We have been visiting Grano De Oro for 4 years now and we have always been impressed by the consistancy of this wonderful little hotel. On the first night in Feb we were in room 23 which is one of the older rooms. It opens to its own little patio and was quite pleasant. We ate breakfast in the restaraunt the next morning and it was great. We have been visiting this hotel since before they built the current restaraunt. The old one was nice, but the new one is incredible. It is rare to see so much pride in quality of service.
On our second night in February we stayed in room 8 which is one of the more modern rooms up above the restaraunts courtyard. This room was so nice it bordered on opulent. It was a mix of classic Costa Rican wood work and nice modern amenities. The bathroom was quite nice with lots of counter space and a big bath tub. The room also had nice windows that gave a great view of the mountains south of San Jose.
If you are considering staying at Grano De Oro I highly reccomend it. You might consider asking for one of the newer rooms or at least ask for an upstairs room. That will be the best way to avoid the rooms that some trip advisor members have complained about.
Another new addition to the hotel is shuttle service to the airport. Thay have a driver that was very accomodating and the trip cost $25 in a van as opposed to a teeny cab.
