    Much better than expected

    Staff was very friendly and helpful, room was clean and orderly, restaurant was nice as well. The only negative comment I have is the amount of sound coming from the street, so be sure to get a room facing away from the busy and loud road. Overall, pretty satisfied with the hotel.

    Good for a short stay

    We stayed one night between a flight and a bus. Not the best part of San Jose, but served our needs well.

    Great staff but very noisy hotel

    Pros: - Excellent communication prior to our arrival. - Airport pick-up/drop-off was on-time - Staff is very friendly and helpful - 15 min drive to the airport Cons: - VERY NOISY: loud party right next to the room until 12am, then constant dog barking - Neighborhood does not feel safe

    All about location

    Very nice and friendly staff. Location was just perfect, minutes from juan carlos bus terminal. Exactly what we needed for our travel to Puerto viejo. We would consider staying over nite again in the Cocoon hotel.

    Nothing too amazing, but still nice

    I was only here for about a day but it is a pretty good place to stay. It's fairly new and close to the caribbean bus station. Comfortable, natural decor and not so big you have to walk for forever to get to your room. I didn't deal too much with the staff besides asking them to call a taxi, but they were friendly. The area isn't the best at night time, but during the day its fine. I would stay here again.

    Hotel near san jose central market

    My experience was generally positive. However, no hotel restaurant and a bit of false advertiment when this hotel web site stated that one of the amenities was hotel shuttle. Not true, and my taxi was more than a room for the night.
