It was great to get into San Jose and be able to go to a gay friendly hotel and sleep by the pool for the afternoon. Everyone at Colours is really friendly--staff and guests both--but I had the most interactions with Jimmy. First of all, he spoke Spanish with me even though I'm sure his English is better than my...

I loved staying here. They didn't give me the room I ordered or paid for, but it worked out anyways. The bar shuts down early and there is nothing near by, but if you want gay friendly and need to relax after traveling, this is a great spot.

This is a very nice hotel, with an extremely helpful staff. Our room was a bit small but we weren't in Costa Rica to hang out in our room all day. The pool area is lovely and inviting. The hotel is close enough to downtown that a taxi can get you there quickly for about $10 USD (with tip). The... More

What a wonderful little hotel. I stayed a week and took side day trips. The staff was excellent. I was a little concerned about taxis at first due to experiences in Mexico City but I contacted the front desk before my trip and was helped by Liz. She arranged a hotel taxi and later described what taxi issues I should... More

This was my second trip to Costa Rica, and I was going to need a room for 11 nights. I decided on Colours once I saw the photos and read the other reviews. It is a beautiful boutique, with lush landscaping and perfect for those times you just want to relax. The room had everything I would need and the... More

Having not been to San Jose in over 20 years, I was a bit nervous about traveling alone and staying in town. This was all dismissed once I spoke with Liz over the telephone. She arranged my transportation from the airport, which I highly recommend as the Taxi drivers outside customs are a bit aggressive. Upon arrival at Colours I... More

This is my second stay now at Colours Resort and I feel it is my home away from home. The staff there is really what makes the place so enjoyable. They all work very hard to make sure your stay is fantastic, going above and beyond what even a 4-5 star hotel would do with much more personalized service. The... More

I stayed at Colours as part of a "dental tourism" visit in Jan. 2014. As someone traveling alone and without a rental car, I needed a place with a caring and understanding staff, which is perhaps one of the best features that Colours has to offer. They made sure that I got to the oral surgeon's office via taxi, or... More
