Hotel Bougainvillea is a garden oasis with 10 acres of colorfully manicured and landscaped tropical gardens that are filled with birds, butterflies, and song. From orchids and bamboo forests to cactus gardens and tropical trees, the place bests most botanical gardens and has excellent signage. Take time to stroll the beauty and discover a small Japanese garden, a gazebo, a...

An extremely well maintained and modern hotel without losing local ambience. We would definitely stay here again. The advert says 25 minutes from the airport; this may be true, but not at the time we arrived. It was a Friday evening just before the Easter holiday and it took at least 2 hours to make the trip. The hotel is...

We were booked into this property with a small group tour. We spent two nights there. It is a very nice hotel in an urban area of Heredia. It is a three-story building with a long hallway on each floor, with rooms on either side of the hall. The room was a fairly standard nice hotel room, with the expected...

We stayed here for 8 days after our birding adventure and we could not have wished for a more comfortable stay. We had a junior suite. Rm 216. Mountain view. Massive room. Breakfasts were superb. Staff are very accommodating. LOVED this place. The gardens are beautiful and the pool clean.

We spent the last night of our Costa Rica trip at Hotel Bougainvillea and really enjoyed the stay. Our room did not overlook the garden (overlooked the parking lot) but there was very little traffic noise and the beds were very comfortable. Of the 4 places that we stayed while in Costa Rica, Hotel Bougainvillea had the best buffet breakfast...

Stayed just one night but the bed was comfy, the room inviting, and the dinner delicious (try the Corvina!) Needed to leave at 4AM for the airport, the wakeup call came right on time. Coffee in the room, and out the door. Easy commute to the airport. I would stay here again.

We were booked into this great hotel and the start and end of out trip to Costa Rica. After a long haul flight from the UK we received a warm welcome and felt very comfortable. The rooms were spacious and clean and the coffee maker was a nice touch. Even though the hotel was really busy our room was really...

Unfortunately I did not stay at the hotel but only went to have a first class buffet breakfast. My brother and some friends have stayed there and tell me the rooms are neat, the hotel's decoration, which I was able to see for myself, is full of orchids, oleos and an exhibit of beautiful raw semi precious stones found on...

We spent a week at Hotel Bougainvillea and we are so glad we did! Our vacation was focused on birding adventures. The hotel gardens are stunning and chock full of birds. Each morning at sunrise we awoke to birds singing and a cool breeze blowing blowing throughout the gardens. Everyday after hiking - we looked returning to the hotel for...

We started our holiday here which was very relaxing as the hotel is out of town and quiet. We had a balcony room so could birdwatch from our room on a level with the birds in the trees. Wonderful breakfasts too
