Fabulous stay! The owner Lily was welcoming and always helping and warm. The room was clean and had a good AC, which is not common for a boutique hotel. It did not have a fridge but we never felt need in it. Breakfast (choice of traditional rice&beans, pancakes or omelette with ham - our favorite) combined with delicious morning coffee, fruit and toasts with jam - fueled every beginning of the day with energy. Lily has advised us on the best tours in CR and actually connected us with an English-speaking taxi driver whom we hired for a few days, which turned out to be more convenient, cheaper and safer (not sharing a van with other tourists during the coronavirus outbreak). I highly recommend Casa Primo and would stay there again!

My mom and I loved our stay at Casa Primo - a boutique hotel in a Spanish inspired mansion. Lily was such a great host, she is so attentive and genuine. she really went out her way to help us through our traveling in costa rica. The hotel is super clean, cozy and well maintained. It is in a nice quite peaceful neighborhood that is in the mid way between airport and San Jose city. Thank you Lily, you really made our stays in Casa Primo more special! We really appreciated your help!

Nice Quiet Neighborhood
Excellent location in a nice quiet neighborhood. It is reasonably close to the airport, and only a few short blocks to very nice restaurants. The proprietors are gracious hosts, their English is excellent, and they go out of their way to be helpful. We will stay there again next trip!

Fair 4.0
I HATE to leave bad reviews. I know there are real people, with bills and families behind the establishment. But this mess up was so next level, I have to address it. I will start by saying THANKFULLY they are connected to another nearby hotel, so a super stressful situation was averted, as we did end up having a place to stay. And the staff at Terrazze de Golf wend above and beyond to make our stay lovely. They get 5 stars. But, back to Casa Primo.... I booked our stay months back. We had multiple conversations about our stay (when we arrive, if meals where available, etc). We arrived at 4 on New Years Eve (our family of 5: my husband and I , and our 3 kids (11, 8, and 1), and we get to Casa Primo and the doors are locked, and the hotel dark. Very strange. Have they closed down? We call and call, no answer. So we are upset and scrambling. For 45 min we are in the parking lot looking for nearby hotels where we can stay, but, again, it’s New Year’s Eve. We had been up since 3 am, everyone is exhausted, and this is not good. At 50 minutes a van full of people pull up. We tell them no one is here, it appears to be closed. They tell us they actually booked the entire hotel for themselves last week, and that it’s impossible we are staying there. What?! Long story short, he calls the owner/manager (lily) and she tells us to go to the nearby hotel. Thank goodness. But again, what?! A confirmed reservation booked months ago, and this? Too big a mess up when traveling w kids. :(
