10/10 Exceptional

This was a beautiful boutique hotel located on top of the city with a great view and an infinity pool. We are cat lovers and the property is home to 7 outdoor babies who are super friendly. If you want a view and love pets/cats this is the perfect cozy and clean spot for you.

My husband and I stayed at Posada el Quijote for our honeymoon. Upon first arrival (at 10:30pm) we were feeling a little uneasy. This hotel is a little far away from the city…it was very dark and we couldn’t see the property well. We were thinking….Did we make a mistake? That all changed the moment we woke up the next morning. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous. The pool, the view, the architecture are all stunning. The breakfast is so filling and great tasting (lots of variety too!). But most of all, the STAFF. Alcides was there almost every day and he was fantastic. He helped us book all of our excursions, even going so far as to call on our behalf when one of the tour guides was late. He answered any and all questions we had, recommended tons of great places to go, and it truly felt like he cared about us personally. The other staff were all very kind too, but Alcides really went above and beyond to be welcoming. The room itself was clean and modest. Perfect for what we needed. In our opinion, one of the best parts about this hotel is that it is so QUIET. We stayed 8 days and maybe saw 10 other people. We enjoyed having the pool to ourselves nearly every morning, walking the grounds and enjoying our quiet retreat. The common areas are also very comfortable and welcoming. We never had a problem with getting food delivered (UberEats) or getting picked up as the location is clearly marked with multiple signs. We’ll definitely be back! TLDR: 10/10 would recommend!

We absolutely loved our stay here. It’s a much more intimate bed and breakfast atmosphere and felt like a more authentic Costa Rican experience rather than staying in a normal hotel. Breakfast is cooked to order off their menu that includes plenty of vegan options! Their receptionist, Alcides took care of our every need from picking us up from the airport to setting up daily transportation, scheduling activities for us to do, and helping with our laundry. I also love the security of the property and that every guest needs a gate key to enter the gated off property. If I ever return to Costa Rica, this will be my go-to hotel.

This place made for a perfect first night and morning in Costa Rica for my husband and I. The rooms were comfortable, the grounds safe and beautiful, and the breakfast was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

From now on, anytime I'm in San Jose, I will be staying at Posada Don Quijote. The place has a very Wes Anderson vibe going. The nicest staff, a great view, great pool and beautiful grounds, the rooms are clean and quiet, the common areas are tastefully constructed and pleasant to hang out in. It's a total winner.
