Hacienda AltaGracia, Auberge Resorts Collection in Perez Zeledon, Costa Rica
High in the mountains of Pérez Zeledón in the seldom explored southern region of Costa Rica, Alta Gracia is the country’s only “Boutique Hacienda” – that means you’ll get a warm welcome as soon as you land on the property’s private runway. The family behind Alta Gracia has roots in the area dating more than two generations back, and the breathtaking natural surroundings are at the forefront of its design. One glimpse across The Hacienda as the morning fog turns the mountainside into a cloud forest and you’ll understand what Costa Ricans mean by the phrase pura vida.
Inhale the aroma of your rich locally grown coffee as you watch the sun turn the rolling hills below into a blanket of lush green. Amble across trails beside the Calientillo River and arrive at the stable for a morning ride across the valley. Keep an eye out for the vibrant teal plumage of a Resplendent Quetzal in the trees overhead. Plunge into the natural spring water of one of the infinity pools and settle in for dinner made with fruits and vegetables grown in The Hacienda’s own greenhouse.

Reviews for Hacienda AltaGracia, Auberge Resorts Collection
We had the most amazing time at Alta Gracia! It was amazing to see how each and every person in the staff gave us extremely personal attention. Every member of the staff is pretty professional. Our daughter kiana was treated really well by everyone at the resort and we felt like we're living with a family for a week! This is our 5th time living at an Auberge resort and by far the best experience. The property is set in an amazing location with privacy in each casita so you really do not feel staying at a hotel. Food was great and the chef went out of his way to cook something different for us when requested. The tours were great and I felt the tour staff is aptly experienced and very friendly - it's a very strong team! Special thanks to: Adriana and diandra (concierge), Ivan, Juan Pablo, Greivin, Jonathan, Allan, Monika (Food), Yendry, Erick (tours) Special thanks to JP and the manager at lobby(forgot the name) We would highly recommend Alta Gracia to everyone we know visiting Costa Rica

We enjoyed a dreamy 6 days at AltaGracia and it wasn't enough. The property is absolutely stunning and the people are incredibly warm and kind. Every bit of our our trip from start to finish was made special by the staff of AltaGracia. By the end, they truly felt like close friends and we were sad to say goodbye. We are already plotting our next visit back - it's unlike any place we've ever visited in the world!!

We absolutely loved everything the resort offered. We have never felt so spoiled (in a good way) in our entire lives. The casita was massive, luxurious and comfortable. Happy hour at La Cantina everyday (2 for the price of one) meant that we were always playing chess and pool while having amazing cocktails every night. In-room dining is flexible and customised to your needs. Feel like having the food delivered to the bar or a special spot in the resort? No problem! Tour guides are amazing. We did the life on the farm, river lunch, ziplining, and horseriding lessons. Tip: do as many tours that requires horseback riding. Such an amazing experience. The resort has recently been classified as #1 in central america. We can say confidently that we would wholeheartedly vote and support this resort being classified as #1 in the world.

Excellent service, incredible facilities, amazing views, great selection of wine and wonderful food. Perfect for family with small children as well as for couples or groups of friends. Been there 3 times and is getting better and better.

We were impressed with the beautiful rooms and facilities and the great food. The staff is amazing and did all to make our visit pleasant. Although Perez Zeledon, where the hotel is located, is not a popular tourist destination in Costa Rica, this hotel really is worth the trip! It is really a farm feeling, with the most fancy rooms in the country.
