Once you eventually find grandpas it is superbly placed for visiting Irazu volcano. Probably the closest decent accommodation. Irazu is about half an hour away on the same road and should be visited early to avoid clouds and crowds. The cabins are private, spacious and comfortable and really give you the outback feeling. Breakfast is good and early, to get...

This hotel was a fabulous home base for day trips for our families. It has a great location on the side of the Irazu Volcano outside of Cartago. We stayed in 2 cabins and were very comfortable. The staff was exceptional. We had a real feel for Costa Rican hospitality and loved our morning breakfasts from the hacienda. The hotel...

If you are looking for a quiet, out of the way place, surrounded by nature, Grandpa's is the place for you. Set on a hill off the main road within a short ride to the center of Cartago, you will be amazed at the beauty of the gardens. We had a large suite that was clean, had a lovely fireplace,...

It was clean. Parking tight. Bars on the windows. Better than most. They seem to try hard to please. Most will find the accommodations good. Breakfast was pretty good too. Price was fair. Had car alarms going off several times during the night which made one worry.

Stayed here early January and was pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness of the cabin and the grounds overall. Comfortable bed, good amenities, and overall friendly service. We did notice some hesitance and uncertainty as we were a gay couple sharing a room; however, it didn't seem to interfere too much with the service. Would definitely recommend.

“The room off the back side of the breakfast room is huge, with two comfy double beds, plus a good size bathroom. There are two recliners and a "bench" covered in carpet along two walls, which makes the room a great party room for a bigger group. The only downside is there is not a mini-fridge in the room to store beverages for the party. On the upside, the kitchen crew let us store beers in the fridge in the kitchen :)”
