This is a modern hotel of unique design. The reception staff are very pleasant and welcoming, especially Rosalie. The room was very comfortable with large balcony and good views. Nice pool. Walking distance to a great local bar, Cebolla Verde with an 'interesting' menu.

This is a lovely hotel, great rooms, wonderful food at the restaurant and beautiful views over San Jose. Good location too. Easy reach of San Jose centre and the airport but still feels quiet and tranquil in and around the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are in Costa Rica for work or if you are staying...

we tried staying at the Hotel Alta this time, after having stayed at several other places near the airport in San Jose. it was very quiet but that was ok, there are not many chairs by the pool, so if crowded could see this as a small issue. the dining room, bar area very nice and staff very friendly and...

When we first entered the hotel after exiting our shuttle, they greeted us with a refreshing drink and cool cloth. Even though this hotel is only approx. 20 years old based upon what staff told us, it feels as though you are stepping back in time. The lobby is small, yet interesting and steps down in tiers to the dining...

An extraordinary hotel because of design and decoration. Location outside of San Jose (20 minutes from international airport). Direct surroundings not inspiring. Good atmosphere, rooms and service. Excellent wifi both in room and central areas. We had excellent diner in the restaurant

Fantastic hotel, we stayed here twice in January. The first night we arrived the room was later out with several candles, champers and rose petals. The steak in the restaurant is simply amazing , we it both times we stayed. On our return visit 2 weeks later we ordered some cocktails and they then also give us complimentary tapas and...

The hotel is in a nice area, and feels very safe and secure. The service didn't seem very experienced, but tried their best. The room was nice and very large, but with no entertainment services. Just seems more like a resort rather than a hotel.

I was a little confused by this review, as the title doesn't seem to match up with the comments that follows or the mark of 3/5 . We always take suggestions into consideration so we can improve the experience for future guests. It is not clear where the shortcomings of our staff were. Each staff member is asked to professionally...

This hotel is quite a hike to get into downtown Santa Ana, and it's a rather daunting hike at that. The roads here are quite narrow, and the little path on the side of the road meanders at times onto the road. Be sure you are paying attention. That being said, the hotel itself is lovely. The interior architecture reminds...

We spent one night here when I had to be in San Jose early the next day. The grounds are beautiful and the staff is excellent. Breakfast was a real treat. We loved our experience there. We will definitely visit again.

We arrived at the Alta hotel late at night after a long flight from the UK. The hotel was lovely and a warm welcome awaited us from the hotel staff. The staff were aware that it was our honeymoon and went out of there way to make some special touches to our bedroom including complimentary champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and...
