Matteo and Meranda were absolutely amazing hosts while my girlfriend and I were there for 5 days. It was great to have English speaking hosts while also having others there that spoke only Spanish to be able to try my extremely broken Spanish. Thanks Ricardo! The rooms were comfortable and the atmosphere of the hotel was very inviting while at...

This is a fantastic place to stay! Safe and secure with super clean rooms, Out of Bounds was a refreshing home base to explore the sights of San Jose.

I LOVE this boutique hotel in Escazu, Costa Rica. Minutes away from where I was undergoing dental surgery, the delightful owner/operators of this gem -- nestled up against the hills -- did EVERYTHING (and then some) to make me feel comfortable, at home. Ice packs were offered each day, delicious smoothies provided, phone calls made on my behalf and great...
