SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA
In San Jose: Alta las Palomas Hotel is among the best of Costa Rica’s small boutique hotels, offering its guests a sublime combination of understated luxury, pampering services, and San Jose’s finest cuisine. The beautifully sculpted hotel cascades down Alto de Las Palomas (the Hill of the Doves), providing exquisite views of the volcanoes, mountains and valley that surround San Jose. The carved look melds different styles: Spanish-Moorish medieval and countryside elegant into one graceful structure. The vaulted ceilings in the paseo and wide stone stairway lead castle-like from the reclusive guest rooms to the warm glow of La Luz Restaurant. The hotel has an old-world ambiance. When you arrive, you will feel like you’ve entered an elegant hacienda in 17th Century Spain. The setting is warm and welcoming. Go up to your room, relax and savor the view.
Alta consists of only 23 units (18 double rooms, 4 suites, and 1 Master suite). Upscale and sophisticated yet small, special and intimate.
