Wow. I really wasn't expecting anything like this when I decided to check in to somewhere nice for my final night in Costa Rica. I only wish I'd found it earlier on in my trip. It's a beautiful building of a certain age which has been renovated and maintained in an extremely stylish way; very sympathetic to its original structure.
I had a plush room on the ground floor which was set in a courtyard that had plants aplenty. It felt very tropical. It was a good size (by my UK standards) and I wanted for nothing. The communal areas are lovely and peaceful.
The restaurant and bar are amazing. The right side of upmarket without being stuffy. Felt very special and the food and cocktails did not disappoint. Really, really good.
The location is not why you choose this hotel, but taxis are plentiful to get you into town and back without it marring the experience.
