    Ordinary trip

    This was my second time to stay at this hotel and again I was disappointed and regretted to stay there. I stayed at one of master suites and refrigerator was located in a bedroom. Of course I was annoyed with the noise all night long. I made several local calls to make restaurant reservations and guess what at the checkout all local calls were charged. Most hotels offer local calls free of charge. It was not much amounts. But where are courtesy services? Nonetheless at my first stay two months ago even when I got there after 4:00pm still my room was not ready. And this time I was told my room was checked in already by me according to their computer system who arrived at San Jose just an hour ago. With the amount I paid for, the value of money was the way below... Won't stay here again.

    Hotel is good

    The hotel is very nice and the breakfast service is awesome they have many things. The location is horrible only because San jose traffic is third world and hard to get to from route 1. If you plan on traveling by bus it's not bad as it's the closest location probably less than a 1000 feet away. Personally I would stay by airport if you rent vehicle so that you can avoid the ridiculous traffic and roads. The hotel pool is very cold but nice size. Good luck travelers each taxi service from hotel to airport is 30 dollars which isn't too bad.

    Beautiful, clean, good breakfast... smells a little musty.

    Really enjoyed this hotel. Was only one night but the room was beautiful. We walked down to San Jose and enjoyed the markets. Location was quiet and great. Only negative was that the room was a bit musty smelling. But with the humidity in Costa Rica, all hotel rooms smell musty.
