Lonely Planet review
In a quiet spot, surrounded by forest, you’ll find Martino Resort & Spa , a Las Vegas-meets-Central America extravaganza of classical mythology and polished hardwood everything. Forty-eight rooms with Greek porticos are spacious and well appointed and there’s a large swimming pool guarded by a knockoff of Michelangelo’s David . There is also a gym, sauna and spa – as well as an Italian restaurant, La Focaccia (mains ₡4500-7000), which serves a mix of specialties, including risottos and pastas. The hotel is 2km north of the Alajuela exit from the Interamericana.
Our independent authors have visited Martino Resort & Spa and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in La Garita.
