Due to a delay of our flight we arrived 2 days later then planned. We got the suite room because of this fact. Very nice gesture of the hotel owner! We loved the super size beds and the hot shower. Very quiet pleasant stay, you didn't had the feeling to be in a big city. The price-value for money for... More

Big private property in the middle of town. This beautiful small hotel has 12 rooms. They offer breakfast and dinner. Relaxing atmosphere with a pool in the middle and places to just sit and enjoy the surroundings. Rooms are very nice but there is no air conditioner. Excellent bilingual customer service. I would love to come back.

This is a great place if you want to escape the city without going to far. Take your S.O. here and enjoy a good night of something different and a nice breakfast the next day. It has a medium swimming pool, nice view and comfortable beds. Great experience.

This property is in the hills of Santa Ana about a 30 minute cab ride (approx $30) from SJO. The property and grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The rooms are very spacious (some of the largest I have come across in Costa Rica) and the beds are uber comfortable. Each room has a generous patio area and all rooms... More

My boyfriend and I just spent our first night in Costa Rica at the beautiful Hotel Posada Canal Grande. First the rooms: They were simple, but lovely. Beautiful tiled floors with wooden doorways and furniture, exactly what I picture when I think Latin America. The grounds were well maintained and the pool was incredibly inviting. There were swinging chairs and... More

We stayed here the first night of our trip and the last two nights of our trip. Louis was amazing and helped me with my Spanish and gave us wonderful advice. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. Highly recommend staying here and getting GPS to find it!

We stayed an evening at Hotel Posada Canal Grande after flying into San Jose. Having GPS in our rental was worth it, as getting there was a little tricky. But the second you arrive it's SO worth it. Greeted by Luis, we instantly felt at home. He provided such great service and made us feel welcome. They ask you to... More

This little oasis is so charming and rustic, the perfect Costa Rican experience. The grounds are stunning and the staff is excellent, in particular Heiner who took very good care of us throughout our stay. The food was exceptional, so fresh, prepared perfectly and presented beautifully. We didn't want to leave!!! I highly recommend this hotel!

We drove up the steep hill to Hotel Posada and were awarded with beautiful views, the most charming hotel and welcoming reception ever. Luis was so warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. I would say that the rooms are not luxurious, but absolutely worth the price and what it lacks in luxury it makes up for... More
