This restaurant has a great cuisine. I love the idea of having several beers at the entrance. Service took more than expected, but after a big table was over got back on track. Place Is beautiful, good view, calm and close to anybody on the Heredia/Santana area. Nice music and beautiful decoration. To get even better, get variety of beers...

Not far from the airport so we thought handy for a quick layover before our charter the next day. So pleasantly surprised by all of it; the size of the room, the decor, great shower, the lovely outdoor dining/restaurant terrace, the grounds, the pool.... This place set the tone for us for a beyond-wonderful trip to Costa Rica. Would stay...

Everything was very good. Fresh, clean and quiet. Pet friendly although the fee is a bit high but you pay it just once per stay, so if it is more than a day is very reasonable. Good food. The view of the valley is nice.

We have been staying in this hotel regularly over the last few years. It is a convenient place to stay at the beginning and end of a Costa Rica trip, as it is close to the airport. The hotel will pick you up and drop you off at the airport; which is only about 20 minutes away. It is also...

Clean room, spacious. Good shower. We were unlucky that on the Sunday night we were there, a Costa Rican family stayed near us. A lot of talkings, laughing until about 22.30 hour. Early, 6 o'clock in the morning about, the children of the family were in the swimming pool active, so, we didn't need an alarmclock to wake up. They...

This was second stay here and it was just as super as the first. If you are flying in ask them to pick you up at the airport and they will wait on your flight and have your name on a board to greet you right past the baggage screening area just as you exit. A quick free ride to...

We arrived in San Jose and since we were on a budget, we picked this hotel based on reviews! The Riviera staff picked us up in a van for free, upgraded our room & greeted us with win 🍾. We are officially on our honeymoon and the extra thought was beyond appreciated. Gaby in the Front Desk was so informative...

La Riviera is a great B&B Hotel to stay for a single night or a few days. The rooms are clean and well equipped. It has free Wi-Fi and the restaurant (Riviera Marketplace) is awesome, having a cozy environment and offering delicious food. Is pretty close to the airport and includes free shuttle.

Have been visiting Costa Rica for over 15 years. We like to book at smaller places instead of chain hotels when possible. Also like to book at different ones to make comparisons.
