    Pura Vida

    We arrived at this hotel late in the night with our two very young kids. it was great to be in a big space after being in airplanes all day. There was plenty of space. It was a clean facility and located near what we needed.

    Needs updating

    This apartment was great because we were six people and could all be together. However it needs updating. Handle in tub came off in our hand. Couldn't turn off the water until we used a butter knife to screw it back on. Water in the jacuzzi was not hot. Beds were like rocks. We did enjoy the ability to cook our meals. And there was a grocery store within walking distance.

    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!

    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.

    Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

    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.

    Some good restaurants within a short walk. Also quite a few restaurants had deliveries to the hotel.

    A beautiful hotel on a very busy street

    The hotel is beautiful, and the rooms are very spacious. Everything was very clean and, in fact, the rooms looked like they'd been recently renovated... everything except the shower in the bathroom which was the only thing that didn't look like it was straight from a store showroom. The staff were very friendly, and the hotel felt very safe with a guard on watch at the front gate, who controlled the gate. The breakfast the next morning was really good with lots of choices of fresh fruit and cheese and breads, cereal... there was a lot to choose from and everything looked very fresh. The pool was very nice - very clean, and the water was pretty warm. Internet WiFi didn't work in our room (and it wasn't user error :) ), but it should have (I could see the signal) but I was too shy to mention it to the staff and it worked fine in the lobby and up by the pool so that was good enough. The location of the hotel is along a very busy street, and although there wasn't a lot of street noise, it was a little intimidating pulling out onto the street and walking was a challenge (the sidewalks abruptly ended... but it is San Jose and that's not too unusual...) Overall, we were very very pleased by the hotel, and we had a great stay and I would recommend it to anyone... although I thought the hotel was a bit pricey for the area and if you don't need a super big apartment, there are cheaper places that are almost as nice.
