The hotel is a nice facility with a great view from the roof. The room had a comfortable bed and the air conditioner worked fine. No windows to let in light unless you open the floor to ceiling drapes next to the door. The hair dryer and toilet paper holder were missing. The hotel seemed empty. At the restaurant, I... More

I got lucky and booked this room at the last minute for around $70. The room and bed were first class, the only negative is that the room did Not have a window. The hotel itself is in the city but outside the city center. It is gated and has protected underground parking. As I only stayed in San Jose... More

I am on my second day at the hotel, and I really like it. It's not a 5-star hotel according to American standards, but I think it is still really nice. Bonus: FREE local and international calls from your room! There is also free wifi and free breakfast (which is more than just fruit; I thought it was great). The... More

My family and I stayed at Hotel Beacon for two nights at the end of our vacation in Costa Rica. I made the reservation last minute and our first night was indicative of my lack of planning. My husband and I had to "share" a double bed and our 12 yr old son opted for a roll-away, rather than sharing... More

I stay there for 2 nights with breakfast included. The price of the Deluxe room was $79 plus taxes and I think that this is one of the best quality/price that you can get in San Jose, they have a little jacuzzi in the middle of a little tropical garden, the food at the restaurant is good and yes it...

I went for information about the hotel and asked to speak to the manager, he came out of his office on a rage, I even though he was going to get physical with me, he started to scream at me. He was really mad about me asking for him and didn't let me speak, I just left to never come... More

While coming back from a wonderful trip on the Osa Peninsula, we stayed at this 4 star hotel. Not well located in terms of hailing cabs, restaurants or bars, the desk service was average and the bar service poor and inattentive. Further, the street noises are obvious but don't let this sway you. We were steered to a sister hotel's... More

Situated in the area of Escazu, the Beacon hotel is central to shopping and just a short ride from the airport. Ideal as a jumping off point for your Costa Rica adventure vacation or ideal by itself as a luxury spa resort, the Beacon has something for everyone. With 5 star services, clean rooms and a peaceful setting you are... More

Don't believe the "free" cancellation policy. I had to cancel a two-night stay and even got a confirmation email. But my credit card was charged for one night. When I called to complain, the hotel (Derek) said it would be taken care of, but they never did, stalling for time. When I complained to MasterCard, they told me I would... More
