Boutique hotels in Costa Rica offer beauty and warm intimacy

Boutique hotel L'Acqua Viva in Costa Rica's Nosara beachPersonally, I prefer staying in small boutique hotels. Large chain hotels have their function, though I rather like when the receptionist remembers my name and is personable enough to care how I am and how my stay is going. I like waiters who remember I favor water without ice and that my mid-afternoon coffee is an absolute must … with a healthy shot of warm milk, if you please. I am deeply grateful to attentive staff who think up and suggest new things to do or places to visit, without being asked; and who share the scoop on local hangouts and well-priced stores.

Boutique hotels are all about an unforgettable travel experience. They enrich your journey with something different – history, culture, remarkable architecture, outstanding surroundings, new friends or unusual charm.

There are as many different styles of boutique hotels as there are chains, but what binds them all together is their design flair and attention to detail. It is generally accepted that boutique hotels have less than 100 rooms, and as per “Boutique Hotels International,” they have an intimate atmosphere.

Instead of an impersonal homogenous chain hotel, you get a distinct place where design is intrinsic to the experience, where they pride themselves on personalized service, where details and quality count, and where its charm and intimacy ease you into relaxing even before you’ve checked in. Further, it often costs less than you might think.
