My husband and I had a difficult time finding it at first (it was dark and we had a long day of air travel). We called the hotel and the gentleman at the front desk stayed on the line until we found it. It is actually very easy to get to from the airport and main roads after you find... More

Well I don't even know where to start how to describe how welcome and how comfortable me and my friend felt when we stayed at this beautiful hotel.. From the minute we got in there we were treated like family to them; at the front Desk Jonathan he made sure to made this trip just an amazing experience by recommending... More

The room, as above mentioned, was nice. The bathroom (no tub, only shower) beautiful. Unlike other reviewers, we had no problems with hot water... The elevator was out of order. When we asked about it, we were told that it had been so for over a month because of some missing part... (Five stars?...) Anyway, we had to drag our... More

This hotel is a sorry excuse for the 5 star service they claim to be. I stayed at this hotel with my husband when I was 7 months pregnant. We reserved the room ahead of time, since we would be arriving later in the day to check in. During check in, we were given keys cards to our room that... More

I stayed overnight at the Beacon while conducting business in San Jose. I was given an accessable room. IT was Good. Large and nicely decorated, it was also relatively quiet. I got a great price for the room. The neighborhood is ok. It is located in a residential area of the older part of Escazu. Very tight streets and not... More

... Because I'm never coming back!!!! If you're looking for a nice stay, quiet environment and excellent service... DO NOT GO TO BEACON HOTEL. I went there for Valentine's with my boyfriend. We booked via the Hotel's website and when we arrived at Reception THEY HAD NO ROOMS even when we had a confirmation code. They gave us the very... More

Rooms are fairly large, well decorated and very confortable. It can be noisy sometimes because it is located near a busy road where buses and trucks are passing by. Also if you take the mini suite, be aware that the wall that separate your room from the other one is not well insonorised so you can ear what is going... More

I booked this hotel through Expedia. After reviewing the reviews, I decided to cancel my reservations with this hotel through Expedia. I was well within the no charge cancellation timeframe however this hotel still charged my credit card. I've been contacting them for the last three weeks for my refund to no avail. The manager continued to tell me that... More

I was booked to stay here for a friend's wedding last month (which she had started planning about a year in advance). After several staff turnovers during this period, the hotel repeatedly failed to stick to commitments (constantly changing plans that had already been agreed to, etc.). Eventually the wedding had to be moved to another hotel at the last... More

No lights on in hallways when I arrived - the staff had me follow in the pitch dark to the room! And, that was after not finding the reservation and much confusion at the desk first. Booked the largest room, but when we arrived, Beacon staff had "no record" of the reservation - even though we had both called and... More
