I will visit La Terraza the next time I am in Costa Rica. I stayed for a month and had a wonderful experience. Jeanetta is a very knowledgeable hostess and I learned a great deal from her. She is committed to the comfort and well-being of her guests.

La Terraza was a very clean and beautiful property. It was not a typical resort, but had more of a homey feel. Jeanette was extremely gracious and her wonderful cook and house manager, Kristina was perfect! Breakfasts were made to order and served on the terrace. Our room was small but very clean. I would recommend it for those who...

Spent three nights here with a friend in February and enjoyed our stay very much. There was a problem with our booking (we booked through hotels.com and the B&B had failed to update its calendar with hotel.com's search engine), but after some back and forth Jeanetta confirmed that we would be in La Bella Suite (the only suite here that...

It was very easy to book and communicate with Jeanetta and Charles about our booking and travel in Costa Rica. It was helpful to have a US phone number to call as well as email. Both were very responsive to our questions. We arranged a driver and guide, Adrian, through La Terraza. He was excellent and made our experiences even...

I want to thank you for organizing the trip for the ladies and choosing La Terraza. It was a very pleasant surprise to have a visit from a group of talented educators.

I was so completely thrilled by La Terraza. Not only were the accommodations excellent, the garden across the footbridge was an unexpected joy to sit quietly and listen to the birds. The flowers and shrubs made for some fantastic bird watching. Beyond those two things, one can not forget to mention the excellent breakfast prepared by Chris or the delightful...

Located on one of the five ancient volcanic ridges that surround Grecia, La Terraza is a warmly energizing place for rest or for launching explorations. Our days began by choice with breakfasts on the terrace with other guests and joined by La Terraza's owner, Mrs. Jeanetta Owens, and twice ended with dinner on the same terrace. Jeanetta sparkles with big-smile...

Great place outside of Grecia. Beautiful setting and people. I would highly recommend the driver that Jenetta arranged for us. His name is Adrian Acuna Retana. Delicious breakfasts and comfortable rooms.

This is the place to stay if you are coming to Grecia either for a visit or to consider moving to Grecia. Mrs. Owens can arrange the perfect driver for you and will make sure it is a fair price.

The rooms are meticulously cleaned. The grounds are absolutely STUNNING! A river runs through the grounds! The breakfast was made to order every morning and was one of the best parts of our day.

Im so glad that you also were able to go to Panama and see that. It was so wonderful that you are married to a great cook who was able to make Gumbo and help us all enjoy Christmas day. I sure hope that you dont like Panama as much as you like Costa Rica!! Waiting on your return.

“The bridge past La Terraza was out, so there may have been less traffic than usual. We needed to take a taxi to Grecia for dinners ($3). Jenetta was very helpful with arranging a driver (Adrian was wonderful!) and van to other parts of the country. Breakfasts were excellent!”
