You will see quite simply the most beautiful women on the face of the planet here. I didn't stay, just mingled a bit. The bar is located in the middle of the hotel's courtyard. There are plenty of TVs showing american football and not much else. But, who cares? Being there is like being in a Playboy photoshoot.

General Manager Manfred is the heart and soul of this business. He understands the definition of customer service. The hotel needs to offer an outdoor designated area for cigar smokers. Morning continental breakfast was poor and always out of items.

This place is strictly for the single, male traveler looking to score chicks in San Jose, CR. Which is what I am. Having said that, The room I stayed in left something to be desired, and it wasn't girls. The rooms don't have numbers, they have names. The one I stayed in was called Paz which is Spanish for peace.... More

This place has everything you need if you're there for pay for play action, it's a bit noisy in my opinion but the food and drinks prices are reasonable. The staff was friendly and able to speak decent English. I felt that the safe included was good enough for the materials I kept within it. It's not a good place... More

Decent area if you need to be downtown. But, this isn't a hotel in the true sense of the word. It's a cat house.I don't think managment disputes that. How can they. If there weren't girls for hire on the premises it would be empty. Other then that, attentive staff, good security, lively bars, good place to watch sports, bar... More

We only stayed one night, didn't eat here or do the bar scene but the layout was nice, like an old world mansion. The bathroom was complete with a modern toilet, stand-up shower, Jacuzzi for two but lacked an exhaust fan. With casinos and cafes just blocks away I'd stay again even though the rooms were a little noisy; the... More

Sportsmans Logde is a great place to watch a game, have a few drinks or eat dinner. The burgers, are the absolutely best in Costa Rica ( imported Peruvian 1/2 lb patties), There are hookers there, but they are passive and won't bother you, ( unlike the Del Rey ) The owners are Gringos , the place is clean and...
