Service was always excellent and done by heart. They gave us a deluxe room simply for doing a small mistake with the pricing. The deluxe room was super modern and very clean! I loved the bathroom :) Thanks for the service Veronica and the receptionists!!

Veronica (and at least two of her colleagues) speak excellent English. Always a helpful front desk. Rooms pleasant & large - mine had a balcony. Plenty of shops nearby, Tour buses pick up here. Restaurant could improve its breakfasts though.

This hotel is very nice. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, bathroom is OK. The staff is very friendly and helpful, this is really exceptional. The hotel is about 15 min drive from the Juan Santamaria airport and the taxi typically costs USD 25 dollars. Significant difference bewtween 'standard' and deluxe rooms. Make sure your room has an external window.... More

Being my first time in Costa Rica and arriving at night I was very frustrated driving to the hotel, but once I got there I could not have been more impressed with the friendliness of the entire experience. I will never come to Costa Rica again and not stay at the Isla Verde Hotel

This small private hotel is run by a family, all of whom pitch-in at the front desk, bar, restaurant and back office to make sure that each guest has a pleasant experience. I had business at the US Embassy, just down the street, and this family always seemed to know what to do in order to make things easier -... More

We were only there for one night, but we were hospitably received and taken care of, with help with a taxi to meet our friends for dinner. The room was what we needed with an excellent bathroom and plenty of space. We would certainly stay again. The Chinese menu was tasty too!

After a night at La Amistad (which had great reviews it doesn't deserve) we found it a relief to find Isla Verde. Clean, professional, customer service excellent. Parking, great breakfast, what else could you ask for?

I was in San Jose to renew my passport and had heard about Isla Verde through the grapevine. Upon arrival, I was impressed with the clean modern appeal of the hotel's interior and the warm greeting from the staff. The room was sleek and clean, but it had everything you could need including a small desk so I could work... More
