A lovely oasis in the middle of a busy town. Many folks stay here while having dental work done..I wish I had known about this hotel earlier. Our room , 103, had a kitchen, living room, extra room with couch, 2 bathrooms, and a bedroom with king bed. The windows are absolutely soundproof, and there was no road noise. The hotel itself is gated, which added to the feeling of security. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The wifi was fantastic...our room had its own router.

The suites are very large and spacious, 2 bathrooms and the master bathroom has tons of space. Rooms were very clean and cleaned daily. Pool and gym were well maintained. Staff was very friendly, a guard is posted at the entrance which provides for a safe feeling while being in San Jose. Location worked well for us, close to airport and San Jose.

Thank you for staying with us. We are sorry that you did not have a good experience. In Costa Rica one of our biggest problems is that not all the areas have defined sidewalks, but we are located in one of the most strategic areas of San José, near the best shopping malls, restaurants and medical centers. It will be a pleasure to see you soon again and provide you a complete guide of all the good things that you can enjoy around.

Nice hotel but Could be much better!

Nice big hotel near everything but they said breakfast included when they don’t even include eggs !!!! Because they charge for eggs and omeletes and on weekdays breakfast do not includes “pinto” so the “free” part is ONLY publicity for them.... Also,they should improve customer service at the front desk, they look like they are mad of each other.

Best Hotel Stay Abroad

Pros: Everything
This was truly one of the best, if not the best hotel experiences ever. The staff was wonderful and so accommodating! The breakfast was delicious, the pool and hot tub were beautiful and the facility as a whole was very well kept. The location was great for walking to local stores and restaurants and the Multiplication (Mall) was only about 5 minutes away. The traffic is bad in San Jose, so be prepared, but if you rent a car, the drive up and down the Pacific Coast is worth it. One of the greatest vacations ever in large part to this hotel.
