TVP is not a resort, So if that is your expectation go elsewhere. TVP is a great opportunity to live in a downtown San Jose townhouse. The units are furnished much like an upper middle class person might live with in Costa Rica. My wife & I loved our week, we felt like we had a great home in which... More

Nice place to stay if youre planning to travel around the area a bit. Geographicly close to most of the country. Had a kitchen in the condominium so it was easy to get away with food prices. Could havet been a bigger variation in room sizes.

Just returned from Costa Rica and booked a three bedroom week stay at Taranova - Villas Palmas with a party of 4 females. this location is indeed a central place to stay and tour sites in and around San Jose. The staff was very polite and helpful. I mistakenly left some clothing there and after calling was able to pick... More

TO the travelers sharing photos of Taranova-villas Palmas, Thank you. The pictures capture a much better depiction of the property that words cannot completely convey, So with a few detailed reviews and photos, makes booking this 'resort' a more comfortable option. Previous reviews left me anxious about the booking. No photos were up (not good ones, anyway) and all the... More

This complex has just 13 units & we had the opportunity to meet & get to know everyone. It's not a 5 star by any means, but it makes up for it by being clean & more than adequate. The 5 star part is the Sol Tropical Tour Company that arranges the tours for those staying here. We took 5... More

This condo is charming. The staff, especially Alfonzo who seems to work 24 hrs a day! Mark the owner/operator of Sol Tropical was a great information resource and very helpful in guiding us through our various travel needs from location to location. We did one tour with his group (only time we had, as we were in for a wedding... More

I stayed here for two weeks in February 2012. I found the units themselves to be average at best. The location of the resort is not desirable; but they tell you as much. Virtually no on-site amenities except a very small pool. I found the staff to be quite efficient and friendly. By far the best feature was the eco-tours.... More

The last couple of reviews are absolutely correct. RCI needs to rethink offering this property under any circumstances. Our assigned room, number 11 was NOT clean upon arrival. Filthy dishes in the sink, used toilet that wasn't flushed. Gross and disgusting smells overall. We we moved to number 4. No hot water downstairs, low water pressure in the showers and... More

Very outdated with no ammenities. Outrageous to have to pay $50. for utilities. Not even a packet of coffee to start. Tour company on site offered tours every day with an excellent tour guide. Most days only 4 people on tour ,so it was very personalized. Small parking space within the compound. and ;it was a compound with a locked... More

Outdated, no proper arrangements for an RCI type of accommodation. The place is a compound in an industrial area. The closest grocery store is a rip off - items for breakfast cost $60 US. Furniture and accommodation extremely outdated. Is this the best RCI can do considering what it costs to have a membership with RCI. Unless you take daily... More
