I recently stayed at thus hotel and I was extremely thrilled with how friendly the staff were. They could not do enough for you. From bringing me hot water for my tea and coffee every morning , to answering the phone when I had a million and one questions about Costa Rica. The hotel is extremely clean and the housekeeping...

Hotel Posada Canal Grande is a remarkable place not for VIPs though. However I really enjoyed it there because it gives you the feel of a typical Costa Rican culture. There are no air conditioners but the windows are made in such a way that the air from the surrounding mountains keeps the place cool as if from an air... More

I stayed here for just one night at an exceptionally low rate....the quality truly surprised me given what I paid. This hotel is very quaint and comfortable - if I'm back in Santa Ana I will surely look to stay here.

We stayed one night at the hotel while on our way to the Osa Peninsula and enjoyed it very much. The hotel is about half an hour from the airport, up in the cool hills. At our request, they sent a driver to pick us up at San Jose airport. The hotel is delightful, and with so much character: colonial... More

We were staying here on our way into CR for a 2 months study abroad in Manuel Antonio... First off, getting here was a bit of a nightmare. We GPSed it and it took us a street over. I asked a couple people on the street if they had heard of it with no luck. Fortunately, earlier we had made... More

Tired of staying at cookie-cutter hotels, with endless, long hallways of identical doors and identical, boring rooms? The Hotel Posada Canal Grande is the opposite. It's like I imagine the fancy (and incredibly expensive) hotels that folks like Brad Pitt stay at when they travel. Huge rooms, huge beds, beautiful, spacious lobby, and fantastic poolside patio in the middle of... More

We had everything we needed. Finding the hotel wasn't too easy, so I would agree with those who suggested more or clearer signs - our tour operator had written a very precise description on how to find the place, so we didn't have that issue.

We really enjoyed Posad Canal Grande Hotel: In a quiet neighbourhood, lots of garden, and great dining at Da Marco. The place is located only 35 minutes from the airport. Not that easy to find would be our only comment, other than that, we had a great stay.
