The grounds are immaculately kept with the largest variety of flowers I've ever seen....today when I arrived, it was quiet and cloudy so I took advantage of a long stroll of the property. I loved the aromas and visual displays of art and nature combined. Since this was my first day of vacation, I thought I would take it easy...

Nice quietish spot on the edge of town but could be a lot better appointed. the Hotel is clean and shiny but is also characterless and soulless and too clean cut to relax properly in. The staff are a smiley and robotic team instead of a collection of individuals and are far too attentive. They get on your nerves after...

This is a very good hotel about 25 minutes from the San Jose airport. It was a stay over from our trip from the US and has an ideal location away from the city proper. I would highly recommend a stay here, especially if you are using the airport. Very nice and comfortable and the staff is very nice.

I often stay at this hotel when my vet requires my pet to stay overnight at his facility. I live up in the Lake Arenal area so this has become my home away from home due to the medical needs of my dog. My only regret is that when my pet is finished with the vet and we are too...

From the greeting when you arrive. To the clean and well kept rooms. The spectacular gardens. Refreshing pool, with a sauna. Outstanding gym. Good dining and quiant bar. Great for families. I prefer the garden side, but the night city views are very nice on the street side. The street side does have air conditioning if you want to shut...

Wonderful overnight stay after a long adventure through the country. The gardens were fabulous. The gym was clean and fully equipped. The staff and food were great too. A great place to stay for a day or a week as a base for day tours. Loved it

Hotel Bougainvillea is a garden oasis with 10 acres of colorfully manicured and landscaped tropical gardens that are filled with birds, butterflies, and song. From orchids and bamboo forests to cactus gardens and tropical trees, the place bests most botanical gardens and has excellent signage. Take time to stroll the beauty and discover a small Japanese garden, a gazebo, a...

An extremely well maintained and modern hotel without losing local ambience. We would definitely stay here again. The advert says 25 minutes from the airport; this may be true, but not at the time we arrived. It was a Friday evening just before the Easter holiday and it took at least 2 hours to make the trip. The hotel is...
