This place is a little out in the cut from avenida central. The place has a sports bar/pick up bar. Not sure if its past its heyday or not. Seems like a bunch of mostly old timers. Wasn't too happening on a Friday night, unless it gets packed after 9.

This is an adults only hotel. This is an old mansion that the owner has expanded over the years and updated. It has a quirky layout because of this. But the staff from the front desk to security to the bar tenders can't be beat. The food in the restaurant is above average for Costa Rica and the bar scene...

I was here for food and happy hour. They have daily happy from 4 to 7 pm where beers and wine are $2. The food was pretty good but expensive like the rest of costa rica. I had a steak for $13 which was okay but not great. However, the steak would cost much more elsewhere.The sportsbar was great with...

This happened to be my second visit to the Sportsman along with my friends Mike and Chris. My main purpose in this review is not concerning the lovely local ladies that frequent the establishment but more so on the Staff that can so often make or break a vacation. Let me start with Security since they are normally the first...

Adults Only. A good small resort located in Barrio Otoya. (Next to the zoo). A good resturant accompanied with an outstanding international sports bar. Eight screens, covers all U.S. Team sports, as well as Football from South America, and Europe. Their security is excellent and the staff are generous with customer service. The resort caters primarily to a male clientele.💕👍😍

Never stayed here but watched a couple of NFL games one evening here and the place has a great atmosphere and ambience. The bar served chilled beer and excellent mixed drinks, we dined here post game and food was really good for a sportsbar. May even stay a night or two on my next trip to SanJose. Place looks interesting.

This was my first time staying in the San Jose area and staying at the Sportsmens Lodge didn't disappoint. This is an older converted mansion that is now a combo sports bar-hotel. I ws able to watch all the NFL playoff games during my stay as well as other sports related programming. This is really a hotel that guys stay...

I accidentally ran into this place. I work for an international company and I travel on last minute. So booking a hotel is impossible. So I ended up in this neighborhood at 11 pm. I really needed a place to stay. Hotel was heavily guarded and got me curious. If your traveling alone this hotel is for you. Smoking is...

Spent 5 nights at the Hotel with initial thoughts of staying a couple of nights and seeing some of Costa Rica. Well that did not work out that way. Ended up not leaving the compound the entire visit. The owner Bill and his Family run a top notch establishment where your comfort is their utmost priority. The Staff are professional...

The people at reception were very helpful and nice and could speak english very well. My room was clean and comfortable, but it was one of the rooms surrounding the bar area which means it was loud until the bar shut down. The late night 24/7 guards that let you back into the property were very professional. Overall it is...
