I would like to provide some positive information about this tour and recommend it to others. It was an awesome experience right from the start. We started off at the Real InterContinental in San Jose but stayed at 4 other hotels, Lomas Del Volcan, in Fortuna, the most beautiful place you ever want to stay. The Marriott Resort in Guanacaste,... More

My wife and I just spent four days here and it wasn't love at first sight, more on that later. The location, setting and room appointments were all above our expectations. We stayed in the tower portion of the hotel facing southwest. The view of the mountains was great and cheaper than the rooms overlooking the pool. Our room was... More

Located in a suburban office-shopping mall complex, the hotel is a comfortable retreat in a busy region. The suite was large, with an interesting bath arrangement, and best of all had an outdoor pool/hot tub on the balcony with a view over San Jose and the mountains – very welcome in the cool evenings. Staff were enthusiastic and very helpful,... More

Excellent displays of food at breakfast, afternoon and evening snacks!! Gustavo Hernandez in the lounge was a real delight in always making sure we were comfortable and had everything we wanted!

Restaurant service was abominable. I e-mailed Intercontinental and old them I had booked Yokohama and Tokyo for September and October and the response I got was they would chastise the restaurant in Tokyo and give me 5000 points. Not only was customer service stupid, but they didn't read my compliant. I tried to get my complaint on their web site,... More

We recently stayed at this hotel in San Jose as a starting point for our vacation in Costa Rica. They allowed early check in which gave us a place to take a nap after flying all night. It was comfortable and the room was clean. We enjoyed our meals at the hotel restaurant.

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Caravan Tour, and loved the hotel. Gorgeous property. Had a nice view of the pool (though never had time to use it, or the hot tub!). The beds were comfortable. The only disappointment was the Margaritas! Very expensive, and tasted awful! Bartender needs a new recipe!

Nice hotel with a big infrastructure and nice places to have a meal around... Fair gym with new equipaments!! hotel with good accomodations, large bathroom and good breakfast station! the negative point is the distance from downtown and the daily traffic that we have to face to get to the city!!!

Dear Eduardo284, we are glad you had time to enjoy and experience all our facilities and services. You are absolutely right, we are located in the suburbs of San Jose which requires a taxi ride however this is also one of our selling points due to the quieteness and safety of our location. Best regards, Ricardo M. More

We spent 2 nights here. Beautiful hotel near a major mall. The food was very good especially breakfast. Have them make you an omelet with ingredients that you can choose to add. The pool was very nice but late afternoon you don't get much sun - just a section of the pool area will still be in the sun to... More

We stayed at this hotel 2 nights and found it to be very clean, quiet and comfortable. Our front facing 3rd floor room gave us an amazing view of the parrots which come every evening around dusk.
