Far far away!
This hotel was nice but so far! The service was very accommodating, even though most of the workers only spoke Spanish. We missed breakfast one day but they were still willing to deliver it to our room. They called taxi services for any excursion we wanted. However, it is in the middle of no where. A taxi ride to any store or attractions costs between $20 to $80. My sister and I came to this hotel expecting it to be close to the Poas Volcano but it was an hour and a half away. Even though the restaurant was a nice addition, it was not even open for one of the nights we were there. Overall my sister and I were surprised by how secluded the hotel was and would have wanted fair warning of how far it is from everything.

In the clouds !!
Beautiful clean room, comfortable bed, great view. However, was very cold and humid as hotel is locate high up in rainforest (approx 5000 feet above sea level). Room had no heat and hot water lasted 5 min at best. Be prepared ,... Bring warm fleece and rain shell.., windy !!! And misty in evening.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Hotel Alto Palomo
This is a charming, rustic, family run hotel in the mountains. The hotel is one hour north of the San Jose airport. It is a little hard to find. If you rent a car or have a driver, tell him/her to go to the town of Sarchi Norte and take Calle Sahinal to Route 708 north. The hotel is off of 708. It has breathtaking views of the mountains and valley below. The hotel is on the family farm with walking trails, great views, and a waterfall. You can also visit the animals on the farm. There is a restaurant on the property as well, which also has beautiful views, and good food, but not many vegetarian options. The hotel rooms were lovely, with amazing views. However there was no heating in the room, and rooms were cold. The beds were large, comfortable, and had sufficient covers to keep me warm. Because it was so cold and windy, occasionally the wind would pop the metal roofing on our cabin and wake me up. Overall, we thought the hotel was, beautiful and peaceful. We would stay there again if we are in the San Jose area. Hotels.com has the incorrect phone # for the hotel. Go to the hotel website for the correct #, if you need it. Also, the family was great, but not very good about answering the phone when we tried to contact them. It may be easier to try to call their restaurant if you need to get in touch with them.
