    Beautiful property! Really friendly and helpful owner. We spent one night here when we arrived in San Jose, before heading out of town. It's only 15 minutes from the airport. Our flight arrived late and the owner stayed up to wait for us. We woke up to a lovely breakfast that we ate on our terrace, with a gorgeous view of the lush rainforest. Would stay again, thank you Mathieu!

    Mathieu and his family were fast to respond to our needs! They arranged to pick us up from the airport, and were super kind. There was 5 of us staying in 1 room for the night, and it was comfortable and great. Breakfast was amazing!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    My girlfriend and I visited Costa Rica for our first time. Hotel Pibi was our first stay. We weren't quite sure what to expect but we were blown away by the property and welcoming nature of the property owners. The place was clean, the view was spectacular and the hosts so welcoming. The breakfast which was provided was great! We came into Costa Rica on a late flight. Mathieu greeted us at the airport to transport us to the hotel. We hadn't eaten on our flight. So Mathieu was kind enough to bring us to a local grocery store (one still open though it was quite late!) for snacks where he showed us around and made sure we were taken care of. We couldn't have asked for more. I would definitely recommend Hotel Pibi to anyone considering Costa Rica for their next vacation.

    The location is exquisite - what an amazing view. The room itself was quietly beautiful and unique. Extremely comfortable beds and a beautiful shower. What a gem.

    Hotel Pibi Boreal is situated on a beautiful green space just like the profile photo shows. The sounds from the forest and the fresh air are fabulous. The hosts seem like very nice and sincere people. beds were firm, breakfast was basic continental style but nice and fresh and delivered to our door. The property is a bit out of the way and there isn't anything to do there...except relax and watch the forest...which is the point.
