This is an upscale conference/business hotel which I would have loved to give high marks to. I stayed there for three nights recently (separate nights: rooms 2004, 3008, 3007). It didn't work for me. The plusses are evident. Rooms are very nice and quite roomy --- high ceilings, lovely decor with historical San Jose pictures on the walls and dark... More

This is a very nice clean hotel with good facilities and large rooms located within walking distance of the centre of the city. Although by default this hotel should be a 4 or 5 star it just is missing the touches that make it good. For example our room was missing the remote control for the TV and this was... More

I stayed here in November 2012 and January 2013. Firstly, the rooms are quite spacious and clean. The room service is quite efficient. There is a special dining area on the executive floor with free flow of soft drinks, coffee and snacks 24 hours. The front desk is quite efficient and warm. It was a lovely stay altogether

The rooms were extremely spacious, clean, with a sizable bathroom. Plenty of hot water...the pressure was a little light, but that was common in most Costa Rican hotels.

This hotel sits near the university in san pedro. It is very nicely decorated and clean. The breakfast was solid and the hotel boasts a gold's gym which guests may use.

It was nice to stay in a hotel with such spacious rooms and high ceilings. Another nice feature is its proximity to downtown. The city center is within easy walking distance, although to reach it you have to cross a big intersection with no crosswalks. (And I'm not sure I would chance it after dark.) The staff were pleasant and... More

Average Hotel that feels a little tired and could do with a refurb. Rooms are quiet but windows are small so there is limited natural light. Reception staff and at the breakfast were really friendly and nice.
