Always look forward to staying At the Amistad. Not really for families I believe all the rooms only have One bed. The Mona Lisa is an American Style hotel with good prices But just have the atmosphere Of the. Amistad

The staff is second to none...The food is top shelf...anything you get on the menu is great...I mean that... I booked 7 days there and it was the best time ever...The all inclusive package is your best... More

After walking nearly a mile with a 70lb piece of luggage I finally arrived at Hotel Amistad. I had been told at Hotel Morazán that they could not confirm my reservation even though I had a confirmation number from hotels.com. After I explained my dilemma Mr. Carlos at Hotel Amistad got me a room, asked me to have a beer... More

Once again Matt and Don have made a business trip a pleasure. This was my third or fourth time at La Amistad, and as I said, a great hotel! They go out of their way to make sure you have what you need, the bar and restaurant are top shelf. This has to be the best kept secret in San... More

The hotel is very conveniently located and the food package is a great value! The food is excellent and that was the frequent comment when I was asked where I was staying. The hotel is an old mansion and rooms are different but all are nice. The hotel is near a commuter train track and so the rooms on that... More

This includes breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as cocktails and to top it all you get your taxi paid for back to the airport if you stay at least 4 nights. The... More

Yes it is on the edge of the "red zone", but unless you import the ladies you will not be bothered. It is more a business place than a family place. The Hotel is very clean, the staff is great, the food quality is top level and the all inclusive price makes it a steal. WiFi signal is strong. Ok,... More

Great price with lots of extras in centro SJ. One of the few that you don't get "bothered" by bar girls trying to pick up a customer like at Sportsman's Lodge. Food was very good and very reasonably priced.
