This is a piece of paradise and you will not want to leave I promise. The comp. breakfast is scrumptious and healthy too. If you need any thing at all Barbra and her husband will help. You can not go wrong here. You will be glad you stayed here---it's Magica. There is electricity in the air I tell you.

I’ve had 7 wonderful days at Tierra Magica, enjoying the beauty and good taste that surrounds you. Barbara the owner is a lovely person and takes very good care of her guests. She is an artist and will be happy to show you her interesting technique of painting with clay and sand on canvas,which she gathers from the rivers, mountains...

The room and home was lovely, but the busy street right next to it was very unpleasant. I don't know what the other reviewers definition of peace and quiet is, but mine certainly doesn't include relentless loud engines noises. Not at all relaxing for me. I thought it was a little expensive as well.

I could not recommend Tierra Magica enough. We arrived after midnight after a grueling day of international travel, and our hosts were ready for us. The upstairs, king-bed room is amazing. Huge, beautifully appointed and with teak floors and ceilings. The huge tile bathroom was lovely as well. You know how cute this place looks in pictures? Its actually cuter...

We spent 3 nights in the hotel, the room was spacious and very comfortable. Located close to the center of old and new Escazu makes things very easy. Great breakfast and the hosts very friendly and helpful in recommending the attractions and restaurants nearby. Very positive experience and the rooms and hotel have beautiful and art and gardens. Will return!!!

For anyone that wants peace and quiet but needs to be in the Central Valley, this is the spot! Cozy, clean, quiet, walking distance to many amenities. A truly beautiful home!

This is a beautiful little B&B hidden from the world while located in the center of the city. Once inside there is no evidence of the city. The service was wonderful. The owner is very personable and speaks English. Breakfast is served anytime up until 9:30 and it is delicious, including fresh eggs, juice, bread and fruit. There is a...

We've stayed here twice as a convenience to the airport. Both times, our room was lovely and the breakfast was delicious. The hostess is a lovely lady and she even took us with her on her grocery run so we could fetch some dinner. Also, keep her posted if your arrival time changes. She likes to know when to expect...

We stayed three nights while in the area getting dental work done. Barbara made us welcome and the rooms are lovely and spacious. The downstairs room has two queen beds and a large well appointed bathroom. The upstairs room has a king size bed and small frig and nice bathroom. The only negative is the street noise - not a...
