The most important thing for me at Isla Verde, was the nice and very friendly people, who was atended there. They was all the time ready to give any information and to be at service with a sunrise and objectiv subject.

This hotel is currently under renovations but this did not affect my stay in anyway. My room was brand new & very modern & spacious. Staff were friendly & the hotel common areas were lovely. Easy 5-10 min walk to the US Embassy meant that if you're getting a new visa is is the perfect place to stay.

Our group of 16 (students and adults) stayed at Isla Verde Hotel when in Costa Rica for our mission trip in Pavas. The hotel was beyond anything I expected to stay at while on a mission trip. The rooms were very clean, had plenty of storage space for clothes, etc., the shower was amazing! Wish I could take the shower... More

Management really cares about the customer experience. Good food and breakfasts that exceed expectations at the hotel restaurant. Enjoyed my experience in this hotel and will return when I'm back in San Jose.

Very nice staff , great breakfast and very pretty common area ... I did recommend it to a friend! I booked last minute and showed up late night. I was fed a snack after a long day of travel. Freddie and Jose helped me navigate my next stop.

I was waiting outside the hotel for a friend to meet me and take me into Pavas. While waiting I saw the change of shift outside and you can tell they care about each other and their hotel. Just sweeping the floor area I saw gentlemen come outside and pick up the carpets for the women to sweep. As they... More

My review is 100% positive. We stayed in a standard room. The decor was practical and it was very clean, new, in fact. So new, it still smelled like fresh paint. We had a small problem with the air conditioner, but they were happy to upgrade us to another room, free of charge, to accommodate for our inconvenience. they have... More

My wife and kids, ages 2 and 7, made a US Embassy run last week and booked a room at Hotel Isla Verde. And I'm so happy we did! The staff was excellent - super helpful and accommodating. The newly renovated hotel is slick, modern and hip (I'm an architect). And secure too. Nice Chinese motif throughout without being over... More
