Reviewed 9 February 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights in the junior suite our second and third nights in Costa Rica. We had an amazing stay, to say the least. We are in the country on an extended stay so while at Casa de las Tias we were very homesick and scared but Pilar and Xavier were more than accommodating. Breakfast is a dream. I have a more comprehensive review here:

Right near everything you need in San Rafael Escazu yet tucked away you get a break from the noise and especially the pollution. You will not be disappointed!

We were directed to this unique Bed & Breakfast by our jungle lodge host, when we found we had to spend one night waiting on our flight. Instantly I wished we had more nights to spend in San Jose to explore from this safe, secure and beautiful headquarters. We came to see birds and they were right there in the yard, including on of the most beautiful birds in the world, the blue-crowned mot mot. We had a scrumptious hot and homemade breakfast with other travelers and enjoyed the company of our hosts Xavier and Pillar. I strongly recommend a stay here -- the rooms are glossy wood with windows open to the breeze. Soft clean linens welcome you to the comfy beds. We were so excited to start our jungle adventure in the welcoming arms of "the Uncles."

Room Tip: They were all good rooms.

I had a wonderful stay at this little gem. Javier and Pilar went out of their to ensure that our stay would be comfortable. NIce location within walking distance to very nice restaurants and stores. Javier directed us to a very nice Argentine steakhouse.

My sister and I needed to stay overnight in San Jose and Casa de las Tias was recommended to us. We were not disappointed! The B&B was beautiful set in a quiet neighborhood with good restaurants within walking distance and lovely gardens to relax in. The place was clean and the breakfast was terrific. Xavier and Pilar are gracious hosts and I enjoyed the other guests there.

I would certainly return to this B&B on any return visit.

We had an excellent time at Casa de las Tias. The accommodations were very comfortable, charmingly beautiful and beyond our expectations. I highly recommend staying here if you are in the area.
