Overview

Not far from San José lies the former Costa Rican capital of Alajuela, a historically significant and beautiful town known for its laid-back atmosphere and friendly population. This idyllic “City of Mangoes” provides the perfect setting for Villa San Ignacio, a charm of a hotel that is perfect for both business and leisure travelers. The hotel has an outdoor pool, spacious rooms, a restaurant and bar, and plenty of open spaces to relax and appreciate the natural beauty that surrounds you.

This beautifully restored former estate has preserved the country feel and landscape, making it a welcome change of pace for guests. The gardens of the property feature fruit trees and other native plants, creating a tropical background for the sixteen rooms. Guests appreciate the understated, homey décor of the rooms as well as modern amenities that they may find at a larger hotel or resort.

The hotel makes it convenient for air travelers with shuttle service from the airport as well as free parking.

Because Villa San Ignacio is also pet-friendly, you can stay with your best friend and favorite travel companion. You can expect the same commitment to service for your pets, from the water bowl and bedding in your room to the veterinarian on call if the need arises.

Dining is another highlight of the hotel. Pandora, the hotel’s restaurant, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, focusing on the freshest of local ingredients and flavors. The chefs rely on seasonal produce grown right on the property to prepare traditional and international fare. You can also enjoy the nightly happy hour with a cocktail on the terrace or by the pool. Room service is available if you prefer to rest and dine in the privacy of your room.

Villa San Ignacio is a prime location for corporate events and special retreats such as destination weddings and family reunions. The property can host large groups in the conference room as well as the BBQ Rancho pavilion, a more informal setting for cookouts and parties. Let the staff help you plan an event and arrange catering with the restaurant to make your event as special as the surroundings.
