We stayed at Casa El Dorado for 3 nights. It was overall one of the best accomodations we have experienced, and by far was the highlight of San Jose.

The room we stayed in--mini suite--was very comfortable and had a large bathroom and jacuzzi "built for two"!! We found the accommodations very relaxing and romantic. Situated almost at the top of the mountain, there is an incredible view from the terrace of the central... More

I say maybe the best stay ever for lots of reasons. A beautiful home with a beautiful view, both night and day, and the hospitality and food was wonderful.
