Good service. We had a 3a.m. wake-up for an early flight and the driver of the van was prompt and courteous. Check-in was easy. Close to the airport and they are a drop-off for Vamos Rent-A-Car, so we were able to leave our car there and Vamos retrieved it. Very convenient for us. Nice place. Great restaurant.

In our way to the beach we stayed the first night and the last night during the visit to the country. We will definitely stay there again, excellent value for your money. It is comfortable, clean, serviceably as any good bed and breakfast. People who complain about the music volume could have asked to lower down and staff is more... More

Seems many like this hotel. Not me. Clean but emotionally cold. Loud music at breakfast. $10 for tiny waffles for a child. No feeling in room you are in Costa Rica. Icy cold decor. Recommended by Vamos. Rental car.

We, too, were recommended this hotel by Vamos. The grounds were lovely & the staff friendly. One of the reasons that I only gave 3 stars is because the room is just OK. There are 2 bath towels but no hand towels & no bath mat. Also, only one glass & one cup for the in room coffee. This is... More

We stayed here for a night before leaving San Jose. The guy Max in the Vamos4x4.com car rental company recommended this place.
