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.

Fabulous Healing Retreat

I wanted to share the highlights of my stay.
Juan did a fabulous job of making sure my needs were met from arranging driver pick up times, scheduling massages, opening the yoga room and offering amenities to enhance my stay. He is new to the retreat and is a true asset.
Gaby and Carol work in the kitchen and dining areas. They went out of their way to prepare delicious and nutritious meals while working around my dental issues. They care deeply about providing the best service and are very personable.
The rooms are comfortable and clean and the retreat is enviro-friendly. The grounds are gorgeous and lush and the view of the coffee plantation is beautiful.
I highly recommend spending time here to heal, reconnect or rest. You will be well taken care of :-)

Had some pretty major oral surgery at Dental Cosmetics in Alejuela (also excellent) and stayed here at Asclepios to rest and recuperate. I’ve been so blown away by the beauty of the hotel and grounds but mostly by the people who work here - Juan, Carol, Gabby, Marlene, David, Pablo, Raulio, Carol’s mom, Lucia, Sonia...everyone has been so accommodating, going out of their way every day to make sure we had what we needed.

The food is clean and organic. Carol and the kitchen staff prepared all of our special requests (lots of soft food) with open-hearted smiles. I never felt like I was being a bother. Everything was really tasty.

Both Lucia and Sonia were EXCELLENT (body wrap and massages). They are healers, not just massage therapists.

The facilities are lovely - pools, steam room, jacuzzi, exercise room, etc. Also, a yoga room and a “relaxation suite.” They’ve really thought of everything. Asclepios would be a fantastic venue for a healing retreat - it’s small and easy to access from the San Jose airport. (There is a WiFi lounge in case you need it.)

This place has felt like home (only better) and the people feel like family. I’m so grateful that the dental clinic hooked me up!

???????? Two thumbs up! Loved it. ????

The essence of wellness and caring staff

Juan welcomed us for our wellness stay after dental surgery. Juan was so very attentive and caring, animated and most of all....genuine! His pride in his job and his pride for the Asclepios Wellness Retreat was immediately apparent. We stayed nine days and Juan was always at the ready to answer our questions and make our stay most comfortable, accompanied by his beaming smile. Gaby and Carol cared for us in the dining room and comforted us with excellent food. We arrived as guests, we left as friends!!!
