their all inclusive makes a nice place even better. The food and drink are plentiful and of a high quality. The staff is great, and the location, just on the quiet edge near everything in Bario Amon, cannot be beat. Lots of friendly travelers in the lobby, restaurant and bar areas, make this a perfect place to start your CR... More

Warning! This is not a family hotel, it's only for men in San Jose on business or monkey business. That is all I'll say on that topic.This is a decent hotel, some good rooms, some not so good rooms. Do NOT get room 101, it's right next to the kitchen and pots & pans get used starting at 6a.m. I... More

The 'All-Inclusive' package is off the hook... More

after my first few stays at Meson del Angel which is near the Children's Hospital I have been staying here.. The ownership is very accommodating to foreigners in the all-inclusive includes all the food beer and liquor (except top shelf and imported beer is 50% off). if you stay 4 nights you even get your ride back to the airport...

First, let me say that it was my first time at this hotel. Myself and a friend try to make it to Costa Rica every year for some R&R, We usually stay at the Sportsman or the Del Rey. Well we decided to give the Amistad a shot. We were both very happy with our choice. Matt (Owner) was great,... More

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

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
