The Latin America Travel Company Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★
Located on the outskirts of San Jose with excellent views over the city, the Alta hotel combines modern design with vintage touches. The plush interiors feature individual pieces of handmade furniture and vintage photos of Costa Rica adorn the walls. Each of the simple but well appointed rooms come with either a terrace and a garden or a balcony with views over the city. Designer toiletries by L’Occitane are an added luxury.
Perched on a hilltop overlooking San Jose, the Alta hotel offers excellent views and some lovely touches like coffee from their own plantation
The hotel operates its own coffee plantation off site which the guests can visit by 4×4 to learn more about the coffee making process. The coffee is not sold commercially and served exclusively in the hotel. There is a generous swimming pool and secluded private dining area for romantic dinners. The La Luz restaurant focusses on Costa Rican dishes with a Mediterranean influence making use of local and organic ingredients. Other facilities include a small gym and sauna.
