I have stayed at the Hotel Grano de Oro many times and it is always a delight. The hotel is lovely with very well appointed rooms. Some rooms have outdoor patios. The restaurant is very good, room service is good and extremely fast. The best part about Hotel Grano de Oro though is the people. The service at this hotel is impeccable. The people are warm and friendly and always extremely helpful. If you find yourself in San Jose, Costa Rica, for one night or many, I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room with an outdoor patio. Maybe you'll get one with a fountain and goldlfish...

Attention to detail, room quality, service was outstanding! Just felt like we were in Paradise. I would give it another star if it was by a beach! We had 2 nights here and it was bliss - so much so I wanted to stay and enjoy the property for longer but not so sure about San Jose itself. Had New Year's eve dinner here and the food was delicious - thank you so much. Your staff were excellent. Nice easy stroll to the centre of town also!

It was a lovely mansion with rooms of little courtyards with lots of green.
Loved the restaurant that has a great menu and service. There is a courtyard in the middle of the mansion and we loved sitting there - just lovely!

The Grano de Oro exceeded our very high expectations in every way. The place is beautiful and it is managed in the most pleasant and professional manner. The rooms are lovely and the restaurant is exceptional.

The staff was extremely accommodating from the time of reservation through departure. They even tracked down a pair of glasses that we had left in a van that drove us to a great canopy tour arranged through the hotel.

We can wholeheartedly recommend Hotel Grano de Oro to anyone staying in San Jose.

We stayed in this hotel which has the perfect location in San jose... (between East & West)

Grano de Oro was a luscious , comfortable home away from home on our last 2 visits to San Jose
The food is delicious, the personnel very helpful and the rooms have a 'plantation house' feel about them.

We used the bar and restaurant to entertain friends and family and we always felt at home...

we will be back!
