The plenty of varied and high-quality accommodations in Costa Rica enable guests to experience the country during their vacations in any way they wish. It does not matter what sort of accommodation the visitors are looking forward, Costa Rica offer different kind of hotels throughout the country to match every budget and interests.

Here, visitors can find properties from ocean view or beachfront properties, to distinctive luxury facilities anywhere in the country. Besides, from sustainable hotels, boutique and private lodges, or hilltop retreats to the best honeymoon getaways. Here there is something for every taste!

And we are not the only ones that recognize the great distinction and quality that characterize the Costa Rica hotels

Last week, the Capitan Suizo Hotel, a beautiful property located in the province of Guanacaste, and the prestigious Grano de Oro Hotel, in San Jose Costa Rica, the capital city of the country, received the Conde Nast Readers’ Choice Awards 2018, in the category of best hotels in Central America and the Caribbean.

Both hotels, members of the prestigious Small Distinctive Hotels group, occupy the first two places with the highest ratings, being also the only hotels of the country at the top of the ranking.

The award was based on the opinions and comments of travelers from all around the world who voted for a while. These awards recognize only the best hotels internationally and have several listings divided into different regions.

Within the platform, the Capitan Suizo hotel is positioned in the first place with a rating of 97.29 and followed by the hotel Grano de Oro which reached a rating of 97.14. In the top there can be found also hotels of Puerto Rico, Barbados, Jamaica, and Guatemala, among others.

We are very pleased with this important recognition as it reflects the constant effort in quality and personalized service that all the hotels in the group do. Being in the first two places as the best hotels in Central America and the Caribbean is for both hotels very important and is a reward for the effort. We have no doubt that we are the best collection of boutique hotels in Costa Rica, readers of Condé Nast say so," said Mr. Mauricio Aymerich, marketing director of Small Distinctive Hotels of Costa Rica.
