We stayed at Hotel las Palomas for 2 nights after a cruise. Before we arrived we had been a little concerned because the price was so reasonable we felt that the hotel could be disappointing. What a lovely suprise we had. The appearance is as beautiful as it appears on the website. the decor of the public areas is delightful...

As a frequent traveler I must admit that Costa Rica is not one of my favorite countries and San Jose not one of my favorite cities. The Hotel Alta Las Paloma's redeemed an otherwise unremarkable trip filled with sub-par accommodations. The property is BEAUTIFUL, like a modernized medieval castle, and the on-site restaurant served what was hands-down the best meals...

After spending a week+ near Manuel Antonio park and near Arenal Volcano, this hotel was a nice place to spend a last night before a very early international flight home at San Jose airport.

“The bottom floor rooms don't have views, but they have great terraces out to the pool... great place for breakfast ”

“We enjoyed an upstairs room with outside balcony & stunning views.”

“Our room was the closest to the pool and the restaurant, it was very convenient as we just walk outside the room from the balcony to go to the pool. However, there wasn't 100% privacy as we could see people passing by going to the pool right from our bed. Next time I would choose an upper level room where I can have the curtains wide open and enjoy a more private view. Also you have to be careful and just be sure to lock the doors/windows that lead to the balcony, because of the traffic area.”
