The hotel is beautiful with the open air. You enter the area and have a coffee bar, computer center, lounge with large flat screen, and water fall with small pond with turtles. The main bar and dinning area are open to the pool area and it is very tranquil with gorgeous wood architecture. The staff is amazing with a smile... More

I stayed here on my way in/out of Costa Rica and it was really convenient. Only a 5-10 minute taxi drive from the airport (about $12 metered), the pool area is a perfect place to relax. We ate at the pizza place down the street and got breakfast food from the grocery store a 2 minute walk away. Luckily no... More

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights from July 7 to July 13. By the second day every staff member we came in contact with was welcoming & friendly & warm. They made you feel that they knew you forever & you were a friend. The hotel give you a tropical resort feel in a major city. The hotel... More

Stayed here for a conference, and liked it well-enough to return. Staff were very attentive and friendly, the facility was extremely well-maintained, and the price was extremely reasonable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Views from some 2nd floor rooms are good. Restaurant breakfast is excellent; bar is good. Eat dinner and lunch somewhere else. Many nearby restaurants...

I have stayed at this hotel over 20 times over the last 6 years. It seems to get better each time. It may be old but has a real local feel. The staff is always very helpful. Love the spa and pool area. It would help if they had a spinner for your bathing suit since it is difficult to... More

Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, room was clean the bed was comfortable, very friendly service (room and restaurant), pool area very nice, excellent breakfast selection, we had lunch twice and both times the food and service was excellent. We booked a tour from the hotel to the rain forest and had a great time.

Stayed for one night whilst travelling around costa rica. Decent room although nothing that really stands out, although I liked the usual doubletree warm cookie welcome. Free business centre and wifi was good. Nice pool area, although food and beverage was overpriced. Pool table and nice little casino. Didn't use the gym but it looked ok. Clean and smart looking...

I booked this hotel because it was near the airport, and I had tons of Hilton points to use. The hotel has a really interesting design: the lobby and hallways look to be indoors, but they're actually open-air (they year-round temperature of 70-80 degrees providing natural air conditioning). They used natural wood abd beams in the construction, so the whole... More

Breakfast (included in room charge in some cases) is a nice buffet spread - eggs made to order, traditional gallo pinto, and fresh coffee and fruit juices.
