We spent our first night in Costa Rica in this hotel. Very comfortable beds, coffee in the room, good breakfast. The garden was lovely and had all sorts of birds including a family of wrens and a Motmot. Only problem was finding it. Do not attempt this after dark without a sat nav. I suggest you take the shuttle bus...

We loved our week-long stay at the Hotel Bougainvillea. Our room overlooked the amazing gardens! The room was spacious, modern and very clean. The balcony was large and the windows had screens, so we were able to open them and get lovely breezes from the hills. The pool was spotless and facilities top notch. Food was delicious - breakfast had...

I stayed here in early December 2016 for two nights before joining a photography tour. The bellman and the front desk staff members were welcoming and helpful. My room was clean and spacious with a balcony and a view of the beautiful gardens. The food was excellent, and the bartender made a great margarita, My only disappointment was the temporary...

Stayed here on two separate days. Very nice and large rooms- quiet. Really nice 10 acre gardens to explore. Breakfast buffet is sunny with views of many birds- great food too. Staff was very nice and kind. No problems at all!! They have an extensive agate/rock collection on display too- My husband was loving that!

When traveling outside North America I often don't have really high expectations for lodging. I usually don't spend much time in the room - so as long as it is clean and safe - no worries for me. Upon arrival we were very pleased to see it was a very nice hotel. The lobby was nice. There are conference rooms...

This is a great way to start our visit to Costa Rica. Located about 8 miles north of the San Jose airport this is a beautifully serene setting -- seriously nice gardens & grounds and nice pool. Rooms are spacious with a balcony and with the evening breeze it is very pleasant. If you have a choice, ask for room...

Excellent choice and location of hotel especially based on our next stop in Torteguero. The choice of a garden room was good – spacious and well thought out although probably needing an upgrade in the near future. The people were very friendly, as we found almost everywhere, the food was of good quality and the grounds were amazing. Our only...

Stayed here to be nearby friends who live in the neighbourhood, but we were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel staff are friendly and warm, the rooms spacious and airy, nice little verandahs on each, and the beds very comfortable. But the real surprise is the large and gorgeous garden! Acres of it and its lucious! Swimming, tennis, and other amenities...

We stopped off here for one night so didn't get to try all the facilities. But it had a good looking pool and gym. We walked their gardens which were delightful. The restaurant was welcoming and the food was pretty good. Would visit again.
