I wish that I had found this hotel first! I stayed here for 3 days with my mother at the end of a 2 week dental tourism vacation in Costa Rica. She had some work done in San Jose, and we wanted a change of scenery for our last 3 days, and chose Out of Bounds based on reviews. It...

Our first night in Costa Rico and our last night were spent here at this place. It was lovely and clean! Very impressed with the warmth and personality of the fellow at the front desk!

I spent 10 enjoyable days at Out Of Bounds Hotel. The View from my room, which had a kitchinette, was awesome. I loved the cool mountain breeze which made the AC unnecessary.

We would definitely come back. Rooms/beds comfortable with no road sounds, staff very courteous and helpful. Excellent Indian restaurant across the street and for shopping, the area close by has all the best places for expats living in Costa Rica doing the San Jose purchase run.

Fernando and his staff were absolutely charming, profess iona and down to earth. They took care of us like we were family & had lots of patience, as we don't speak Spanish that well.

Out of Bounds is just a kilometer from Escazu's Intercontinental Hotel where we had our conference; yet a fraction of the cost. The view is amazing - you can see 3 volcanoes from my window or the upstairs baclony on a clear day. The rooms are clean, artsy, and have coffeemaker, mini refrigerator, iron, hair dryer, and a cool sink....

We had to come to San Jose just for a few days and randomly picked this hotel to stay.

“Do not book a room in the main building unless you are very desperate.”
  • A few of these really helped me get through my underwhelming stay here.
  • The stand-up shower (and the bathroom in general) was a positive.
  • The bathtub (and bathroom in general) was a positive.
