I stayed at the Out of Bounds Hotel for three nights and found the room to be very clean with a comfortable bed, and a nicely appointed room. The place has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere due in large part to the hospitality of the manager of the hotel, Fernando. Fernando was very accommodating in making suggestions for restaurants, arranging taxi...

I have stayed at Out of Bounds a few previous times when it was owned by a different owner. Subsequently, I was a little concerned as to how my stay would go with a new owner. There I met the Manager, Fernando, a young gentleman who immediately relieved that anxiety of mine. He was so friendly, always willing to help...

Costa Ricans rate high on the happiness scale and visitors who arrive with an open heart will get a head start on sharing the feeling at Out of Bounds. Fernando, the young owner and onsite manager, is from a Brazilian hotel family that obviously knows how to make its guests feel the love. The young women who cook, clean and...

Enjoyed my stay very much. Walking distance to town, dental office, and grocery store. Staff very helpful. Free calls to U.S. was a bonus! Room was very nicely appointed and clean. Breakfast was good but small.

The hotel has a great breakfast and friendly people. Just out the front gate is the bus stop to San Jose. The ride is about 20 minutes. The bus runs from the hotel direct to the central bus stop in the center. No getting lost. The rooms are clean and quiet with a view of the city at night. Fernando...

We loved it here. Slept great on their bed, coffee in the room each morning and a nice breakfast. A little frig in the room helps, too. The rooms are clean. The manager, Fernando was very pleasant and always ready to help. At first, I didn't like that there was no microwave in the room until I found it available...

The place is neat and tidy, and every detail in the room has been taken care of. The hotel is close to either supermarkets, restaurants, malls, medical practices, and gyms. The night view is beautiful, and Fernando is an excellent host who will make you feel at home. I have been here twice and plan to come back soon.

Arranged through the hotel to have a taxi waiting at the airport. Seems the taxi had an "accident" and was advised to grab a cab at the airport. Arrived at the hotel. Opened the door and slammed with a real nasty musty smell. The air conditioner was leaking onto a bed. Do they sell Scrubbing Bubbles in Costa Rica? If...

Good afternoon, Regarding the shuttle pickup at the airport: We regret the fact that the requested transport service was delayed, as we of course regret the fact that our driver was involved in a potentially very dangerous accident, and therefore, was unable to make it to you at the appointed time. Luckily, there is are taxis available at the airport...
