San Jose, central highlands and central valleys: Grano de Oro

Visit Us

Grano de Oro

The delightful Grano de Oro oozes charm on a quiet, tree-lined street just off the capital's main thoroughfare. It occupies a converted turn-of-the-century mansion. The corridors are decorated with period photographs and paintings by local artists, and the interior courtyards are studded with tropical plants and fountains.

All the guest rooms and suites are different in size, shape and layout: each is individually decorated with wrought iron beds, works of art and locally handcrafted furnishings. There is a rooftop deck area with a secluded garden, Jacuzzi and an independently-run spa. The restaurant has the reputation as being the best in San José and offers the option to take meals in the tropical courtyard, a sunroom or an intimate dining room.
