Very nice hotel for a very reasonable price. Our travel agent booked us here instead of an airport hotel. The room was very nice considering the low nightly rate. It’s located in a very nice area with a good selection of restaurants right outside the front door.

During our yearly trip to Costa Rica, we had the opportunity to stay again at the Holiday Inn in Escazu. Apart from the great location if you are heading out on highway 27 to the pacific coast, the staff continues to be some of the friendliest and helpful we have ever encountered at any hotel we've ever stayed at.

This property has some of the nicest staff members of anywhere, so helpful and always have a smile and a true willingness to help you.

The Hotel is well located in Escazu, with good walking-distance restaurants at Plaza Tempo. Internet connection is great, has a decent business center, gym and pool on the 5th floor. Breakfast is good. The rooms are nice, not as luxurious as the Inter Continental, but they have everything you need and at a much lower price. Staff are very friendly.... More

Words will never do the justice to the respect that I have gained for this hotel. Upon arrival, I was greeted in Spanish, which I am not so fluent in, but fears subsided when the entire staff is so well fluently spoken in English. Checkin was fast and easy, and all of my special requests were honoured. The hotel is... More

I tip my hat to the awesome Receptionist, Sherrys, who went out of her way to make my stay great. Long story short, she switched me to a room that suited my needs sooo much better.

Fantastic hotel in a great location. Good deal for your money. Staff is extremely friendly, always at hand. I felt at home away from home. Plenty of restaurants and things to do steps away. Will come back and recommend to friends and family - clean, friendly, and good value

Carlos (?), at the front desk, made us feel as if welcomed and at home. He was pleasant, and told us that we could pay our departure tax at the hotel. We... More
