We enjoyed our stay for two nights in the cottage suite. We loved the indoor/outdoor feeling but the glass walls made for a very chilly night. The whimsical heaters were not up to the task of warming the place, so the extra blankets came in handy. I'd recommend this room as a romantic getaway for two people but we were...

We stayed at Altura Hotel for two nights in July, arriving directly from the airport. The staff accommodated our late arrival (11pm) due to a flight delay. The room was very clean and cosy with a fake fireplace heater, which was necessary because of the chilly temperature during the night. We were served a very nice "casado" breakfast together with...

We were greeted by the owner and he gave us a tour of the grounds then showed us to our suite which was really a small cottage with windows all the way around. It was super quiet and peaceful. Food was close by and it is settled in nature. Would definitely stay here again.

One of the closest places you can stay to the Volcan Poas crater, the hotel has stunning views down to Alajuela and San Jose. Wonderful architecture and clean rooms (although bizarre over use of plug-in air freshener), and a lovely spacious outside area with relaxed seating all over, and a large fire pit for the evenings. The hosts family are...

We stayed in two rooms with a family of 6 for two nights. The hotel was difficult to find at night, in a storm, but the reception area was lit up waiting for our arrival.

This place was awesome. The surroundings were beautiful, with a hidden patio over an expansive view where you can drink a glass of wine (which they sell by the bottle at the hotel) while watching the sunset.
