      This is an incredibly beautiful hotel and the quality of service exceptional! The hotel's garden on the extensive property was named the most beautiful in Costa Rica. The grounds, lobby, hallways and rooms are filled with local artworks and sculptures. All staff members were extremely responsive and courteous. Room cost includes an excellent comprehensive breakfast, and lunch and dinner meals were of high quality. The value for the money is outstanding. Cannot recommend the hotel more highly!

      Incredible property

      This is an awesome hotel. We live in Sarchi, Costa Rica and have always wanted to stay at this hotel. We stayed 2 nights and would highly recommend to anyone. The property is beautiful, close to 10 acres of some of the most lovely tropical and local plants and flowers we have ever seen. It has so many trails going through the gardens and it is very walkable. Everything was perfect, service, restaurant, gardens, bed, etc. We visited Sibu Chocolate and restaurant, fantastic experience only a few miles from hotel. We also did the Saturday Féria and it too was close and remarkable. Bought lots of fruits and Veggies. Overall this was a great experience. Hard to describe how beautiful the property was how friendly everyone was. I highly recommend Hotel Bougainvillea to everyone visiting Costa Rica 🇨🇷 and for those of you lucky enough to have this in your backyard. One hour drive from Sarchi.
