We were looking for somewhere to stay close to the volcano, and this place ticked all the boxes. The folks here are the most friendliest we have ever encountered, and have done a lovely job with this place. It's emphasis is nature, and looks like parts are still a farm with animals and beautiful gardens. The room we had was...

The views were gorgeous, the room was spectacular, and the family who ran this boutique hotel couldn't have been nicer. We didn't have a car so they ran us to town for food. The breakfast was fabulous. We wished we had stayed there more than one night.

Somehow we failed to hook into here. The house we had was spacious and airy it looked a little tired and that was my feeling overall. This takes into account it was the rainy season and quite cold. It felt like the family had decided to do boutique hotel but somehow fallen out of love with it. A 4x4 is...

Since the route from Tortuguero to Liberia was too long, we planned to spend a night in between. Poas Volcano was attractive so we booked the Altura Hotel expecting not more than a small lodge in the woods but we were surprised by a gorgeous boutique hotel! Every single detail was meticulously observed, decoration, landscape, the room and even the...

We stayed one night in Poas (6/13) to visit the park and LaPaz Waterfall Gardens before moving on to Arenal. This place was perfect for us -- husband, 18 year-old daughter, and me. We stayed in the studio which is the coolest, most-creative space. It was clean, offered outstanding views from the rooftop deck, and had a queen bed upstairs...

It’s slightly difficult to know what the business logic is behind Hotel Altura – not that there is anything wrong with the hotel. The very modern, stylish and comfortable rooms are set in a stand-alone building, with the reception (and very friendly and helpful receptionist Ramiro) in an adjacent wooden building. Breakfast (fresh fruit, and a freshly cooked selection of...

We drove up to Altura from the airport (~45 minutes) and were greeted by a donkey; the reception area is in a barn. It is a lovely, quiet, peaceful little place, especially considering how close it is to the airport. It is very close to Poas (10 minutes) - which we did not see due to cloudy weather. The host...

The owner of the hotel was very nice. He showed us around the property, and upgraded our room to a chalet since it was low season. We really enjoyed the beautiful views from our room. The breakfast was outstanding Tico food.
