Three couple reunion where we stayed in the same adjourning rooms on Sunday, Friday, and the following Monday nights. As we traveled to exciting places in country we truly had our home base in San Jose. Unneeded luggage for each of our adventures was safely stored by the friendly and helpful staff. Each of the desk people, and we delt... More

During our recent trip to Costa Rico with two other couples, we stayed at the Hotel Rincon 3 different nights between "jaunts". The hotel is beautifully designed and furnished. We were greeted warmly and efficiently by Alan and the other front desk staff. In fact, Alan went out of his way to help us find our way into the city... More

Pros: This hotel was easy to find. San Jose is not always extremely easy to navigate due to one way streets. The location in general was okay. I would like to say that the safe and free parking was the best part of my stay here. Cons: I have stayed in many cities and many hotels (two star to five... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your feedback which is very important to us. I regret that the room was not to his liking and we have different styles and sizes within the same category so that was assigned could not meet your expectations. Regarding the cloths we had some problems with our laundry and I apologize for that, this problem... More

The hotel is a nice simple place but has enough to get some rest and spend a good time with someone else. The jaccuzzi area is quiet and enjoyable and the rooms are pretty clean and comfortable. The staff are kind and helpful. The restaurant could have more options for both dinner and breakfast but it is good enough.

I stayed at Rincon del Valle over last weekend with my group. For our group's needs the location of the hotel was prefect, as we needed an hotel within walking distance to the local synagogue. Rincon was the best place for us. And best of all, the support we got from Marlen was unbelievable. She took care of all our... More

We had a very particular situation which was very well handled by the staff Marlon and Daniela. Through a series of unlikely events, American Airlines managed to delay our arrival in Costa Rica for 4 days. Each day we kept pushing our hotel reservation back to the next day and the staff accomodated us way beyond any expectation and beyond... More

We stayed a night at the beginning and end of a week traveling Costa Rica. Wifi was iffy in spots around the hotel. Walking distance to restaurants was short and cab downtown was $7 each way. The staff had a difficult time printing boarding passes but that was the only hiccup encountered. Rooms were small and didn't really have a... More

Apparently this hotel has gone through two incarnations as chain member and now it is independently run. I would expect that this would have been an opportunity for it to break away from the blandness of chainhood and blossom as a boutique hotel. However, it seems to be feeding off it's origins and hanging on rather poorly to it's former... More

Another great experience. The staff, once again, was outstanding and made me feel like I was at home. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. No lunch was necessary. A la cart menu always offers a good variety and always very delicious. Supermarkets, Banco de CR (for getting or exchanging money), bus stops, and good restaurants are all within a short walking...

Nice place, has a free parking lot, restaurant is great, rooms are very clean, staff is friendly. There is a park across the street that you can bring your family for something to do and a grocery store 3 blocks from the hotel.
