We stayed here our first and last night of our stay and it was a good hotel. Walking distance to a mall with shopping and food court. Also a lot of restaurants around the hotel. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful.

I used the hotel as a stop over for a trip to Los Cocos Islands . It was rather high priced for one night . The pool is very small . the lounge has no ambience , breakfast was not included,. it is in a commercial area there are many westernized restaurant options .The staff was helpful.

Hotel is situated in a very nice part of San José close to Av. Escazú. There are many nice places to eat and a few bars at walking distance from the hotel (although nobody seems to walk). The Hotel itself is very nice, rooms are large, comfortable and clean. There is a complete buffet breakfast everymorning that is quite good.

I arrived at this Hotel around 12:00 midnight with no reservation. The night Manager Maria Jose was more than helpful to me at a time when I was in need. Although this Hotel was full, this young lady, made several calls to other Hotels in the area to see if they had accommodations elsewhere. While most of the Hotels were...

We stayed at this hotel before boarding a live aboard to Cocos island, because the tour operator only had to pickup points. I would preferred to stay in San Jose, while this hotel is in the middle of nowhere. It has a small gym and a even tinier pool at the roof deck. Nice breakfast but nothing out of the...

A modern clean hotel not far from the airport which was a bonus after an 11 hour flight from London. Checking in was quick. We were on the 5th floor near the outdoor pool and gym.

The hotel looks relatively new with nice rooms and an executive floor for IHG Priority members. Rooms are large, internet is fast, and its in a complex that has some nice restaurants.
