I'm here on business for just a couple days. All the staff here is so friendly and accommodating, the rooms are so big! I loved the view for breakfast while working on my laptop. Food, delicious. Wish I could extend my visit to enjoy this a little longer. Highly recommend for your travels!

We only stayed one night, but really enjoyed our visit. Really large suite, excellent deal. The air-conditioner leaked in the upstairs bedroom all night and made a mess, otherwise I would be giving 5 stars. We would stay again.

We stayed at this hotel as a family for two nights. The accommodation itself is beautiful and spacious. The breakfast is also nice and you can sit outdoors if you like. There is a big and modern shopping mall with stores and restaurants in walking distance. Basically we have nothing to complain about the hotel itself. What ruined our experience was the driver the hotel booked for us to drive us to the airport. This is someone the hotel uses all the time for this purpose. I don’t know his name but he drives a grey SUV. This driver drove like crazy, changing lanes like he was racing and so fast although we had children sitting in the back. My husband had to tell him to slow down. Then at the airport he tried to overcharge us thinking we did not know the currency. Please do not go with this driver.

Hello dear Eva Fist of all, please excuse the long time to respond, somehow we lost the chance to respond until last night We really appreciate first of all that you choose our hotel during your stay in Costa Rica. Above all, we thank you for taking a few minutes to make your comment public, this is the reason for our work, that when the client leaves, there is a smile and there is a happy memory of this stay. if you can please send us your name to our email so we can track who this driver was it will be great so we can never use it. Since we do not charge for shuttle (included on reservations 2+ nights and book 24hrs in advance) this has to be a taxi driver that we contacted and not part of our regular drivers. We hope you can return to Costa Rica and make Villas del Rio your new home. Happy trip and return home. Your friends of Villas del Rio Mauricio Castro S / Customer Satisfaction

We visit San José about once a month for a little break and some shopping and always stay here with our 2 very well behaved small dogs. The suites are spacious and well equipped for our needs. Our dogs are always welcome and are comfortable being left in the suite for a few hours while we shop. There is also a special “relief” area for the puppies to do their daily duty... and we always pick up after them.

Sadly we only stayed the night after a long flight, but we all slept well in the spacious, clean apartment with lovely beds. No time for breakfast but we were told by the owners to carry what we could with us on our trip. Decorated beautifully for Christmas. The pool looked inviting but sadly no time for us to take a dip! Would definitely return if we are ever lucky enough to go back to Costa Rica!
