Parque del Lago Boutique Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

When you come in, the hotel is very clean modern and friendly. Seems to be used as a business hotel mostly. For us it was our last station before driving to the airport. We had a good time there. Breakfast was stowed away exactly by 10am so while still eating and looking up on 10.02 most of the stuff was gone already, which is fair enough. We would have thought they could have asked us to go for a last round or something. When we came, there was no hot water, we asked the receptionist and they organised someone to take care of it. After like 5 mins of letting cold water run, we got hot water. Unfortunately just for half a day. After that back to cold water. We didn't bother to tell them again. We're sure they would have come back.

We enjoyed this hotel very much, great view with excellent sunsets, delicious food with very nice and helpful people. The hotel is very tasty and with lot of love equipped. The rooms incl. bathrooms are very spacious. You have many options of activities in short distance.

I was very pleased with this hotel for my first two nights in Costa Rica. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. Wifi is fast (I did a lot of work here) and its located right next to the park which was pleasant for a quick walk. There was a lot of street noise, unfortunately, but I'm a heavy sleeper so it didn't really bother me. The restaurant is fantastic - I really enjoyed my buffet lunch (great price at around $12)! Dinner menu looks great also, and I look forward to checking out the included breakfast tomorrow morning. The view from my room was great! I highly recommend this hotel.

We booked this hotel for 2 nights for our arrival and departure from Costa Rica. It is ideally situated, as it is very close to the city center and right next to the freeway to the airport. Apart from the location the rooms were modern and clean and had everything we needed including off-street parking. The included buffet breakfast was of good quality and of great variety and we liked the food in the restaurant. Of special mention is the courteous and helpful attention we received from the reception staff, especially from Oscar and Jose. They helped us with directions and travel tips. We had to check-out early at 5:00 am, the wake-up call and snack bag for missed breakfast was ready. We were worried not to find the rental car return place, so Oscar was so kind to download an app for us to find the way. This was of great help. We definitely would use this hotel again and recommend it.

We stayed here as a quick stop over the first and last night of our trip and it was a good choice. It is a business type hotel and isn't exactly original or beautiful, but it's very efficient, comfortable and has good service, rooms and breakfast and the late checkout is handy if you have a arvo flight home. It's a little out of the centre, a 35 min walk minimum I'd guess, but its a short cheap cab ride. If looking for a san jose crash pad this is a good value choice.

We stayed here for one night at the start and the end of a two week tour of Costa Rica. The staff were hyper efficient, the rooms ideal for city birdwatching (!) and the breakfasts were extensive. Well placed for walking to San Jose's (admittedly few) visitor attractions, such as the Teatro Nacional.

Excellent experience all around every time. Clean and comfortable. Safe and kid friendly. The best breakfast around. Very nice and helpful staff. My number 1 choice in San Jose, Costa Rica. Nice and secure all over.

The staff was very nice and helpful. We arrived very early and they were able to get us into a room immediately (at 7 am). The breakfast was good and had everything that we would want for breakfast. And the location was close to a lovely, large park.

We checking into this hotel late in the night and we were tired and trust me this was the most amazing hotel with the most amazing bathroom and the best thing was the bed it was so comfortable .. practically everything about this hotel was so good that we would have to actually think what was not good about this hotel and that's nothing ... from the amenities to staff to the breakfast which was simply the best I've had in my journey in Costa Rica vali for money

We enjoyed our stay at Parque del Lago and would go again. Pleasant room, helpful staff, really nice breakfast and a decent restaurant. Plenty of private parking and a shuttle to the airport add to the ease of staying here.
