Our 6 weeks in Unit #3 (recently refurbished) was well above "class" expectations though parking was a tad tight and water below preferred pressure - both symptomatic (and acceptable) of area standards. Rio Pirro, on the rear property line, edged near its banks in November a couple of times...quite an uneasy sight! 24-hour security guard, daily maintenance, super friendly people... More

This apartments were old and smell humidity all over. There was fan inside the room that we have to turn it off due to the noise. The furniture are from 80's and we find hair on the bathroom. Now, the apartment space was decent, but 2 single beds for each room with a very uncomfortable matters. We are not coming... More

I stayed at Building 1 and the overall experince was terrible, they have really old furniture, it smells and they have a really high price, not what I expected compared to what I have seen in the website. I do not recommend anyone to stay here, I don't know about building 2 or 3, but building 1 it's not good... More

I will never stay any other place in San Jose again, as long as Johnny Montero Alfaro, Reservations Manager for Villas de Cariari Buildings 2 and 3, has an opening. It was a beautiful location, overlooking the golf course. 2 different private verandas (off the living and bedroom) provided a great, quiet view to watch the birds or just relax.... More

I always go there when I have to take the plane or when I arrive to Costa Rica. Very nice place. Good service, friendly staff. About 15 minutes from the Airport. I recommend it for one night or for weeks! The only thing you have to know: sometimes, taxis don't know where it is. So bring the complete address. You... More

I have stayed here many, many times over the years and am just now making my reservation for this July. I agree with the last reviewer, the "Horrible" review must be from somewhere else because I have NEVER EVER had a bad experience here. It is very comfortable and the appliances are up to date, as is the furniture. The... More

I only stayed here for one night on the way to Puerto Viejo, but was really struck by the value for money and that I was picked up from the airport, very nice touch as I was kinda nervous it being my first time in Costa Rica. The place is spacious and clean and very quiet as the accommodation is... More

I couldn't believe the "HORRIBLE" review could be true, so I investigated. I think that reviewer must have stayed at Building 1, which has a completely different ownership from Building 2 and 3, although they unfortunately share the same name. I've been coming to Building 2 and 3 for the last five years and I keep coming back because of... More

The stove is from the 50's and the sofa is OLD and run down. The view... More
