    Lovely property, with several restaurants and bars on premise. Pools were enhanced by stunning gardens plus a flock of parrots flying overhead (wasn't sure if they lived here)- even a view of San Jose in the distance. We enjoyed the free breakfast (eggs, fresh fruit, coffee), lovely/clean room, free wifi, and outstanding service. The only negative was the San Jose traffic, so we suggest leaving the hotel early to get to the city to see the various sights (we enjoyed the gold and jade musems, as well as the iconic central market.) Would certainly recommend this attractive hotel.

    We stayed a total of 4 nights in this hotel. 3 at the beginning of our tour with caravan and went back for extra night after our tour. To me it was better than staying for one more night at the intercontinental hotel. Due to comfort, ambience , smaller than intercontinental which means more personalized service, very lush sorroundings , and proximity to the airport .

    Don't pickup seashells, expect the pace to be much slower. Language will be a problem if you leave the tourist sights, have a rudimentary dialect to ask for information such as bathroom, wait times, where's the hotel, etc..

    Comfortable edge of city hotel

    Very comfortable hotel with good facilities and dining. Only down side was that it's edge of city, and so you need transport to get anywhere worth seeing - and with San Jose traffic, that may take longer than you expect.

    This hotel was one of our favorites in San Jose, Costa Rica to go stay overnight between travels or when we have to stay in the city. The rooms are nice, for the most part the staff is helpful and friendly. The last few experiences have not been that great especially in the area of food. DO NOT USE ROOM SERVICE!!! The front desk staff are always helpful but the restaurant staff has been lacking lately.
