Uvita, Costa Rica

This is a wonderful boutique hotel just minutes from the US Embassy. The property is clean the rooms varied and nice yet affordable. The staff are courteous and professional. The on site restaurant is not expensive and the complimentary breakfast bar is a bonus!

Dear Robert D., We are very sorry for what happened to your reservation! Our reservations staff confused your reservation with another guest with a similar name as yours, and thought it was the same reservation, and just so happened that night we were fully booked. We regret not being able to extent our apologies personally. We have taken the necessary...

The hotel was quiet in the middle of a busy area! It is also one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed in. We were tired so we ate in the hotel restaurant. We enjoyed it. The Chinese food was not only very fairly priced, but also the portions were very generous! It is difficult to find decent Chinese food...

The Isla Verde is an older hotel but they keep it clean and it's location is convenient to downtown San Jose and Escuz. The restaurant in the hotel is no bad either. Plus it's fairly priced. The furnishings are sparse but adequate.

While it may have been closer to more food options if the hotel was located downtown, I appreciated so much the value I received for the price that I paid, especially when I checked in to find that as a Christmas gift my room had been upgraded!
