a good trip

We stayed at the hotel November 21, and had a real good time. We live in Costa Rica and so we go to San Jose often, we have already booked a room there, for our next stay. Nice bars and restaurants are walking distance. People we were nice, tried to make your stay there nice. The price was good too.

Don't stay here

Staff do not smile nor indicate friendliness. Made us feel as though we were A bother while simply checking in for our stay . Had dinner at the hotel and had the worst food we've had in the entire country that we had toured for 10 days . While waiting for dinner , we wanted to hang out at the pool, but there were 50/75 people standing around the pool taking up all the tables waiting for some kind of event that was being held upstairs for them . It would have been fun to mingle with them, but none would smile and all just looked at us like we were crashing their party.

Telephone deposit ($200) not returned after five days. Phone never turned on!

Very nice hotel. Very clean. Excellent free breakfast buffet. However, after five days my $200 telephone deposit has still not been credited to my debit card. My telephone was never turned on and the queen bed in my contract was actually two single beds...

Standard hotel, good value

The hotel was clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but very good value. It's not walking distance to anything, but then most hotels are not. It's convenient, internet works great and the rooms are fine. Good value for money.
