Arriving or departing Costa Rica, there are no better options - hey it's us or the Holiday Inn Express :-)) according to Tripadvisor reviews. We even outrank the Eiffel Tower and the Taj Majal with better beds, better food, bad jokes and a botanical garden. Ask me. How can I help you have an awesome trip? Berni
Lowest price guarantee by booking direct to the hotel. Block your date(s) in the calendar, and I will hold them for you. You will get an email to confirm your booking and will include all the info to organize a safe and easy entry into Costa Rica with our free taxi service for all Costa Rica arrivals. If you have more than one date you need just put a comment in the "message/notes". Easy peasy eh?
Individual 1 and 2 bedroom private casitas situated in a lush botanical garden, some with a view to the active Poas Volcano. Beautiful breakfasts come with your booking and scrumptious dinners on an open air terrace can sometimes be had with advance reservations if you are nice to our delightfully crusty chef (aka Chef Nhi also holding the post of wife of the author) known for her expertise in Vietnamese and Chinese fusion).
