My family stayed here upon arriving in San Jose Airport. We got to the hotel in time for a late lunch and the food is absolutely delicious!!! We thought the same about breakfast the next morning. Although the pool was freezing the kids got in! When walking into town we realized that there were no English speaking people there which...

Classy, comfortable, reasonably priced. Hourly airport shuttle, ten minutes from airport, great restaurant. The pool area is beautiful. There are many places, inside and outside, to sit and relax. Our first choice of San Hose hotels!

I stayed in this hotel one night after a late night flight into San Jose. Although my flight was delayed a couple hours, the shuttle service was awaiting our arrival and provided a short drive to the hotel. I spent very little time at the hotel, but the rooms were nice, clean and air conditioned. The complimentary breakfast was DELICIOUS....

I stayed here after 10 days in Costa Rica, using it as a landing pad before I flew back to the U.S. For the money you pay, it's a great deal. It's at least $50 cheaper than nearby hotels that offer a similar level of service, including breakfast and free airport shuttle (e.g., Marriott Courtyard). The restaurant is really good,...

The staff was helpful and friendly and the rooms were nice...we were even greeted by a little neighborhood cat (much to my mother-in-law's delight)! The grounds and view were fantastic...it was really a little paradise. The included breakfast was delicious. It was my first comida tipica and...

The room was clean and comfortable, with air conditioning and two double beds. In addition, the adjoining restaurant provided a delicious...
