Last Christmas, we visited Costa Rica and stayed at the Radisson. We called the hotel in advance and asked for a taxi to be arranged, since we did not speak native Spanish. There was an English speaking driver to receive us at the airport and he took us directly to the hotel. Upon receiving the hotel, we were wonderfully surprised... More

You should not expect you Radisson with western european standard. But even if this place is not so super new and high class we have had a wonderful and pleasant stay there. Spending three nights there we really liked the breakfast with fresh juices of your choice, eggs of your choice and many other things. Good service and nice atmosphere.... More

The rooms looked nice but we're a case of fur coats and no knickers. The taps in the shower didn't work and came off the wall, the sink tap wobbled everywhere, the ironing board wouldn't stand up, the iron had the water top missing causing water to leak over our clothes, the safe played up! The staff were okay but... More

It seemed that there was thousands of rooms, the place was so big and it was a walk from our room to get to the main lobby and restaurants (which was pretty cool because it was all outdoors). The room was decent, pretty nifty layout with tall rock walls and a big bed. The bathroom door did not close at... More

Do not stay in San Jose if you can avoid it. I repeat do not stay in San Jose! The Radisson SJO was the first stop of our 10 day holiday in Costa Rica, four of which were spent here. On this trip I learned many things about myself, including how much I hate staying in the city during vacation.... More
