I co-led a team of students to Costa Rica to serve as volunteers at a children's home outside the city. Our guides, one a local tica, has a close relationship with this hotel, and I can see why. They were very professional, polite, patient, and our rooms were all clean, comfortable, and secure. We had a secure safe in each... More

Pros: Free airport shuttle, location to the airport and the pool. Cons: Sink was badly positioned for a 5ft female to comfortably wash face. Very thin window blinds which meant you were up when the sun was up. Location: Few shops including one supermarket and one souvenir shop nearby as well as a few eateries which we did not visit....

This is our first stay in Country Inns & Suites and it was very pleasant. The staff were courteous and helpful and there is a shuttle to and from the airport. The hotel has a pool, the rooms are comfortable and the one we stayed in was generously large with a lounge and patio. The restaurant was not well attended... More

We arrived to San Jose in the evening on a Friday and our GO tours was to begin at 1030 on a Saturday. We spent the night and morning at this scenic clean hotel and enjoyed a great buffet breakfast, use of WIFI, and swam in the large swimming pool. There was just a couple of people using the pool....

This was our airport hotel, the last night of our trip, and all we wanted was to relax after our drive from the Dominical area. The hotel had my reservation, and we had a room with two doubles even though we really wanted a king bed. They told us they were booked solid, however they were able to find us... More

we stayed here twice at the start and the end of our tour both times we had nice rooms clean and well appointed with an iron and ironing board, the only downside was it was a little noisy as it is next to the pan american highway. Nice breakfast and helpful staff

This is a mid-range hotel next to the Pan American highway about half way between the airport and downtown San Jose. It is good value for money, so I would definitely recommend considering it if you are on a budget. However, the rooms in the "100" series are all subject to considerable road noise, particularly at night. Request a room... More
