The waiters were not really interested and the food..... Well the spaghetti was terrible. Instead of soft, creamy and slight salt taste, it was hard, dripping...

This is a beautiful little hotel and I love how close it is to the airport (SJO), but after staying there for 3 years, it is apparent that they are not keeping up with maintenance. The hot water didn't work one night I was there. The cold faucette in the sink didn't work at all the next week that I...

An older resort full of charm. Stunning main building and pool area. We were taken to our room via golf cart after being escorted to the parking area. Our room on the 2nd floor was beautiful overlooking the pool. The lobby in our building was amazing I'm sure the ceilings were 15' high and the carvings on each room door...

This is a small hotel about a 15 minute and US$25 taxi NW of the airport (in the direction away from San Jose), in a beautiful, quiet countryside location. The rooms are spacious and clean with nice balconies (ours overlooked the pool). Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were OK, although the same every day. The restaurant was excellent with...

To be close to the airport for an early flight, we stayed here and were very happy getting much more than a great location: spacious, very clean room, with the flavor and ambiance of an Italian Villa! Room had 2 double beds, bathroom (with bidet!), a sink outside the bathroom, shelves, open closet, a desk and 2 very comfortable sitting...
