My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time here--the cleanliness/status/quality of the room, staff, and amenities were great. The location wasn't fantastic (although I am unfamiliar with the city; it may be great for San Jose).

From the front desk staff to the location; from room comfort to ambience and from the breakfast to the amenities offered this hotel offers extremely good value for the price paid. While it is by no means a luxury hotel it is very comfortable, well managed, pleasant and priced like many hotels offering far less in the way of creature... More

particularly if you are coming to CR to serve in Pavas area, this is by far the best option for lodging. there is no hotel as close to Pavas as this. easy walking to restaurants (even a McD's if you want it, but i'd advise comidas typicos instead!) nice renovations to rooms, great b-fast buffet, and spacious atrium for lounging...

We stayed at Isla Verde for 7 nights. We had a beautiful new room. The restaurant had wonderful food. It met all our expectations. I appreciated the closeness to restaurants and the grocery store. We will stay here again.

Nice rooms. Safe with security. Food in restaurant not very good. Surrounding restaurants look like they may be good. I would stay here again. Air conditioning was nice after a week of "roughing it." Good experience here.

The rooms are currently under renovation. The result is a very modern, tastefully decorated accomodation. Breakfast includes several hot dishes, cold cerials, good coffee, and fresh fruits juices and bread - and nearly every item was quality and tasty. The front desk staff was extremely helpful; one lady went way beyond to help me set up local phone service on... More

5 minutes walk to the USA embassy where we had our visa appointment, so very convenient for that. 15 minutes taxi ride into the old part of town. It's on a main busy road, so not necessarily the place to stay if you're not visiting the USA embassy. However, I have given 5 stars because the desk staff (Natalia!!) were... More

This hotel is beautiful, clean, safe, close to the airport and cultural areas of San Jose (soccer stadium, farmer's markets, ballet theater, many parks...) The breakfast buffet is AMAZING! Fresh tropical fruits, bread & baked goods, yogurt & cereals, and at least four hot items per day (always gallo pinto (rice & beans), eggs, meat, whole seasoned baby potatoes). The... More

I stayed at Isla Verde on a recent weekend visit to San Jose and had a wonderful experience! I live in Guatemala, and I travel to San Jose for business and personal reasons frequently. Normally I stay in a historic hotel in the city center, but I've had problems with their WiFi and their prices are a bit high for... More

The hotel was easy to get to, had a new modern design and good breakfast. The service was excellent and It was also very reasonably priced. The hotel has a secure underground parking garage. I would definately stay there again.
