Pedro and Ana were very accommodating during our (3 family member) 5 night stay at Hotel Puerta del Sol. Shopping (for groceries and otherwise) at the Cariari Mall nearby was available. The hotel is near the airport and the room was very clean and comfortable. The A/C worked perfectly although was not really necessary at this time of year in... More

I chose it because it was near where I needed to go during my 5-day stay for medical services. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My room was clean and comfortable. It is close to the expressway and noise, but also close (within walking distance) to a mini-mall and a full-size mall. There are plenty of good places to... More

Nice room, comfy bed, clean bathroom. The pool was lovely to swim in. Good breakfast. Great Texas Barbeque restaurant nearby for dinner. Must thank the desk clerk for mailing my postcards - I didn't understand that mail service was rather third-world... Good hotel for our last night near the airport. Please understand I have been meaning to write this review... More

This is not your luxury hotel - it is a wonderful, clean and friendly B&B that provides a very comfortable setting - close to the airport. The staff is always friendly and concerned about your well being - they want to make sure your stay in Costa Rica is a good experience. They have helped with transportation, tourist reservations -...

My bed was covered with live bugs and stains all over the sheets. I was really disgusted and ended up living to another hotel. The paint was peeled of on the bottom on countless places while the surface was covered with dead bugs, leaves, dust, etc. Very depressing!! The pictures are misrepresented. Pool: a swamp. I felt really disgusted. The... More

I stayed 4 days and had a wonderful experience! nice, clean, good breakfast and the staff was very kind, if you need something just ask and they will provide. The owner is a nice lady and the hotel is smokefree, you won't be disturbed by bad smells while eating your food, enjoying the swimming pool or resting in your room.... More

The hotel is run by an obnoxious and nosy old lady who managed to make my life a living hell for the there days my husband and I were at this hotel. Breakfast: "you eat what we give you" is their motto. You sit at a table and the cook/maid brings you what you have to eat (or starve) that... More

Location: difficult to find even for some local taxi drivers or iGO GPS. You can use GPS to get an approximate location and here's the trick: as you go on Autopista General Canas, you have to take an exit towards Double Tree by Hilton hotel (you can set your destination on this hotel, to make sure you take the right...

I've been traveling around Costa Rica for the better part of two years, and I just stayed in the nicest hotel in all that time. Clean IS important to me! And, I'm a budget traveler. This place was fantastic. Very friendly staff and proprietor. Best breakfast I've had in a hotel here, also. Hot water. Nice beds. Swimming pool. A/C... More
