Meh . . .

The lobby has been nicely updated, our room (3300) however, was very dated. There was also a strong musty smell in the room. The complimentary breakfast was very nice, in a lovely semi-outdoor area by the large pool. Complimentary shuttle to the airport was very convenient.

Hard Rock Cafe food was unremarkable and incredibly overpriced. Shrimp fajitas offer 6 shrimp the size of quarters!

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.

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.

Seen better days

The Wyndham seems to be a former five-star hotel that is past its prime. In particular, the bathrooms are dated and tired. Having said that, the overall appearance is still pretty good and the staff is very good and friendly.

An interesting experience.

We selected this location for our last 2 nights in Costa Rica. Hotel and location were overall good. Hotel could stand a lot of minor cosmetic maintenance in many areas. Room was in need of more intensive cleaning with floors especially in need of mopping. Quality and variety of included breakfast buffet was good .

Verify in advance that restaurants are not closed for special events. On Valentines day only room service, bars with limited menu, or Hard Rock Cafe across the parking lot were available unless you were part of the special events. No mention made at check in.

Terrible Wi-fi

When it comes to this "type" of hotel in a foreign country, most are pretty similar - American brand, clean and modern (by THAT country's standard), friendly, if ordinary staff, and a decent (free) business center. So how do I judge? Well aside from downgrading if they fall short in any of these areas, I judge their internet. Well, at least in MY room, the internet was virtually non existent. IF I held my phone or laptop above the bathroom sink I could pick up a weak signal. Otherwise I had to leave the room and go to the lobby. In my mind, a dealbreaker. I likely would not stay here again unless they PROMISED to give me a room with a strong signal (and I'd keep moving to find it!)

Pretty good, would recommend and stay again

We only stayed on night before having to fly back to the US. Check in was a little slow, but we were promptly offered wake up calls, told when we could get the shuttle to the airport and they offered to have a to-go breakfast ready when we checked out. We walked the grounds which were very well kept and the pools were pretty awesome. On site services and restaurants were nice. There was convenient shopping nearby as well. Bathtub was huge and awesome- both my husband and I fit! Beds were not particularly comfortable... very "springy" as in springs... although bouncy too! Really the beds were the only thing I found lacking, but not enough to knock down the score too much.
