I have spent around 3 weeks in Posada Canal Grande with my little dog and we felt so welcomed and well taken care of! The pool area is very comforting and cozy so anyone can find a place to sit, lay, half lay, half sit- you name it- for their convenience. Bali furniture makes it look good and is being...

Great location just off the highway in the hills away from the congestion of downtown. Super tranquilo. Great food (lasagna), wine and a most comfortable bed. Elisa was most accomodating, very friendly and very hard working. She needs a raise! Thank you for everything.

Pasada Canal Grande is a wonderful cozy boutique type hotel with tasteful ambiance, excellent breakfast and dinner menu and above all, great service! The breakfast and dinner were rather expensive; however, were definitely worth the money spent. We would recommend this place to anyone, and if we are ever back in Costa Rica we'll stay there again.

Lovely hotel although it is quite a way from the centre of San Jose. Breakfast is very expensive and the portions are small. Best check the menu for prices prior to ordering anything including lunch. Only 1 restaurant near by so choices are limited. Staff are really friendly, hotel is extremely clean, feels very safe and it's a lovely stay,...

We stayed here for two nights prior to leaving Costa Rica. It is clean, quiet, safe, and we were surrounded by good people.

My friend and I decided to book a night at the Posada to stay with our two young daughters before embarking on a cross-country trip to explore the coasts.

Great location away from the bustle of the city lovely grounds and great staff. Rooms were spacious but dated and a little tired as far as decor goes. Investment in some new mattresses would go a long way.
