The Review

With a stay at Asclepios Wellness and Spa in Alajuela, you’ll be near the airport and close to Zoo Ave and Central Park. This 4-star hotel is within close proximity of Alajuela Cathedral and Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto.

Make yourself at home in one of the 12 individually decorated guestrooms. Partially open bathrooms have complimentary toiletries and bathrobes.

Relax at the full-service spa, where you can enjoy massages and facials. You’re sure to appreciate the recreational amenities, which include 4 outdoor swimming pools, a sauna, and a fitness center. Additional amenities include complimentary wireless Internet access and a television in the lobby. Getting to nearby attractions is a breeze with the area shuttle (surcharge).

Satisfy your appetite at the hotel’s restaurant, which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or stay in and take advantage of room service (during limited hours). Quench your thirst with your favorite drink at a bar/lounge.

Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, multilingual staff, and luggage storage. Event facilities at this hotel consist of a conference center and a meeting room. A shuttle from the airport to the hotel is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.

How to Get There

Asclepios Wellness and Spa
El Cacao
Alajuela, 00000 Costa Rica


Heavenly place to relax and get renewed

The grounds are beautiful with a breathtaking view of the mountains. A small resort means cozy, quiet and peaceful for anyone who wants to get away from it all and reenergize yourself. The food is all fresh and healthy options only. That can be a little limiting for a few but goes in hand with the philosophy of the resort.

Fantastic place
Andrija S

We stayed in Asclepios at 2 different occasions at the beginning of October. Place is an absolute gem! Wonderfully decorated, huge rooms, with a fantastic and beautiful view over the mountains and Coffee estate.
Staff is extremely efficient, friendly, helpful and they will do everything possible to make your stay even nicer.
Restaurant serves good food and great wine.

Good for 1-2 Nights

My friend and I stayed with Asclepios for one night and felt that it was sufficient enough for our experience. The rooms were extremely spacious and the rounds were beautiful but specific wellness retreat qualities were lacking. The retreat was very quiet and peaceful and only two other couples were staying during the time of our stay,

Unfortunately there are no programs or schedule for wellness during the day (yoga etc) and anything of this kind comes at an additional cost and must be booked at least a day in advance. It was disappointing to think we would be able to have access to many of the amenities on the grounds like the steam room outside but again - additional cost and must be booked. The pool was quite cold so we could not swim reardless of the heat.

The dinner was well prepared but breakfast was a huge disappointment. Some small pieces of fruit, granola, and a piece of very dry handmade toast. You cannot order eggs etc so we ended up checking out extremely hungry.

Again beautiful ambiance if you are looking to get away to experience the quieter side of costa rica, but you may be able to get more value somewhere closer to the city.
