A beautiful atmosphere and relaxing place to be, plus the people you meet and stories you share create golden moments! I've enjoyed every minute of my stay, and have created a family in a place I've never dreamed I could.

I am just finishing a stay here and it was great--probably the best organized guesthouse I have ever stayed in. My room was off the lobby and since they have a quiet time from 8 pm on, noise was no problem. They can arrange any tour you want for you, just like any other place in San Jose. The continental...

I stayed in Kaps Place in 12/10, but I just now got into writing reviews for hotels. My trip to Costa Rica was a personal journey of sorts. I was having some personal issues at home in the US, and I wanted to run away for Christmas. I have dreamed of visiting Central America on my own, and just wandering...

First let me say that the support staff for this establishment were fine. Everyone was very nice. The space itself also wasn't awful. The main problems with Kap's Place are its location and the owner. First of all, the hotel is not close to most places in San Jose. It is out of the main part of the city and...

It was a delight for our family to stay at Kaps place. It really felt like a home for my two boys. Throughout our trip they have felt less than welcomed at many places, but immediately upon entering Kap's Place - the bright colors and the playroom put them at ease. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies and...

Clean rooms, friendly staff, nice atmosphere in a quiet and secure surrounding. The airport pick up worked very well.
