Great Stay Before a Flight

This hotel is clean, comfortable, roomy, and close to a big souvenir store and ordinary mall. It was perfect for an overnight stay before catching a flight. The lobby is very elegant and nice. The room seems a bit older but the bed and beddings were so comfortable, and the bathroom is nice. There's even an extra closet with a safe. The room was clean and the staff very friendly. Would definitely stay here again. The Hard Rock is literally next door if you're looking for American fare. Would definitely stay here again. Unfortunately our flight was so early that we missed the breakfast that was included in our hotel bill.

There's a huge souvenir store a couple blocks from the hotel. They seem to have everything there at decent prices. The mall across the street is your typical mall; nothing eccentric to CR.

Great place to stop over

Property insides and staff are A-1, but it is a pearl in an otherwise not-so-pearl environment. This Wyndham in a ways from the center of San Jose. Poor road signage and very hectic traffic (coming from a guy who is/was not shy driving in NYC and Boston), I'd hate to see what I didn't get to see. Property is near southbound Pan American highway; it took us at least 30 minutes to find our way over to the northbound side.

Wish for more time

We stayed at this fabulous hotel to be near the airport for an early morning flight. We had stayed at another Wyndham for five days prior to this stay. I went into the casino and won $167 in little over an hour playing one on one blackjack and hi lo with the dealer. Met some wonderful people and will stay here on returning many times to the most beautiful country in the world and most peaceful.

good place to stay

This is very good value for the price you pay. It is a bit too far from the centre of the city and price of taxis is high (20-25 USD). However, there is a public bus (0.5 USD). Rooms are comfortable adn breakfasts great as well.

Clean, well-maintained, good service, nice breakfast

Helpful staff and reasonable rates are the best features. The spa treatments are good. Facial was fantastic. The buffet breakfast was better than expected with several offerings of local fare, usual eggs, nice fruit. The room was clean, but dated, comfortable enough and new sheets.

Whyndam San Jose CR

I have stayed at the Whyndam San Jose Costa Rica twice. First stay I received a very nice room with oversized tub and renovated room. I was very happy. My last stay May 18th I received a very disappointing room, way below Whyndam standards. Although very clean the room was incredibly outdated. The rest of the hotel is nice. I was also disappointed in the Tropical restaurant which serves room service. I called a number of times near 5:00pm with no answer. I proceeded to walk to the restaurant, saw one employee that looked at me waiting at the hostess pedestal. He looked at me and left, never to return. I promptly walked across the parking lot to the Hard Rock where I was treated very nicely. The earlier stay I had my two young kids and the pool was great.Hotel staff is friendly and the shuttle service is great. Was disappointed in the room and the Tropical restaurant.

Disappointing

The hotel needs to be updated. The carpets are worn and dirty. Everything about the décor and furnishings needs to be updated. My room had a huge brown stain on the white flooring under the bathroom sink. The signage directing guests to the lobby was inaccurate. I have previously stayed in other hotels in San Jose which offered clean, updated accommodations at a far better value. The hotel's best feature was their free airport shuttle.

Good Choice if need airport hotel

for a city/airport hotel, this has all you can ask for....except for an ATM. Staff very friendly and helpful and has practically everything you need. They even gave us a to-go breakfast b/c we needed to catch a flight before the restaurant opened.
