    Villas del Rio saved us!

    Villas del Rio isn't perfect, but it has everything we needed. There is traffic noise from the street, but if your room is facing away from it, it is fine, so maybe request that. The people who work here are so kind, and have easy smiles. They should all get a raise! Very helpful, and made us feel at home. We felt very safe here. The pool is pretty comfortable, unlike more expensive hotels that seem to add ice water to theirs. Our deal from an online booking company beginning with an "O" included international calls! What a gift to be able to talk to our friends and family without hassle. The rooms are roomy, and the kitchens do include much of what you need to actually cook. Out of 6 Costa Rican hotels so far, this was the only kitchen to come with hot pads. Well done!

    Dental tourist

    The apartotel was clean, the staff very nice. The included breakfast was great. The purpose of my visit was to go to the dentist which was close by. The constant traffic noise was very annoying. Trucks use compression braking which is very loud. The walls and gates along with 24 hour security are probably a good idea, but made me feel confined. If you have business in the area and transportation not a bad place.

    Happy Hour and Breakfast Bar are great!

    We had a Junior Suite which is really a nice place to be called a ¨home away from home¨. This place has a nice breakfast bar and happy hour. The reception desk was very helpful specially Ricardo. He helped us all the time to keep our stay comfortable.

    Pleasant Experience

    Staff accommodated us well with an extra bed and followed-up on our comfort. The staff seemed to greet everyone with a smile. The breakfast is not the greatest, but it sufficed. Overall, a very good hotel stay.

    Exchange money with local shops, since they pay a much better exchange rate than the airport.

    Our stay in Costa Rica

    Our stay here was mainly for dental care. However, we had time for three tours in Costa Rica. The staff were all extremely helpful, kind and fun people to be with. The location was perfect for the dentist and we had our own kitchen, which was very good.

    Good stay

    Our GPS didn't have this location, but when you drive around, it is on the intersection and has a sign on the hotel saying Villas del Rio. It took me a while to figure out how to get into the hotel as it is gated all the way around and there is no real driveway to go into and no signs that say 'entrance'. The suite itself was good. You could hear your neighbors pretty well though, so it doesn't have the best insulation. They had a nice gym though and a pool we didn't use. The buffet breakfast was good, consisting of fruits, eggs, ham, breads and croissants. Overall good stay.

    A nice surprise in San José

    A wonderful place for holidays or business. The rooms are big and equipped with stove and cooktop, a wonderful detail for vegetarians like me that like to cook their own food. The overall atmosphere was quiet, secure and business like even though there were many tourist and kids/teenagers. The stuff was impeccable and friendly and made me feel like a king. Do not skip the delicious breakfast buffet!

    Great family stay!!

    The hotel was beyond our expectations in comfort, cleanliness and security. The rooms were incredibly big and modern. The staff was amazing. I would like to rate this hotel from 1 to 10, an 11!! The continental breakfast was very fresh and was also served very professional. You can also purchase other breakfast items for a charge. Very convenient and inexpensive. Most definitely will stay again! and will recommend to anyone!! thanks
