Fabulous place....very quiet neighborhood; breakfast available in the main dining area just off the main entry; soothing waterfall and stream in the dining area, with turtles crawling along the water; nice sized pool. very attentive and friendly staff. this is the place to stay in town if you are gay.

Over the last decade, I've spend months at a time, on numerous occasions every year, visiting Costa Rica. For the last 4 years, Colours is where I home base while in CR, as I've enjoyed San Jose, traveled out around CR, Panama and Nicaragua. I stay sometimes only overnight or for weeks at a time. Pickup/drop-off service at the airport... More

If you are looking for a hidden spot to chill in San Jose, Colours is offers a nice "family" environment. There are lots of little touches added to make your trip memorable: a 3rd floor sundeck with views of the city and mountains (check out the view at night, especially if a storm is coming in!); a pool-side bar with...

Probably one of the harder reviews to write because it's hard to pin point what's wrong here. I think in the end for me it was mostly driven by a general lack of interest from the staff and feeling that the place is a little unloved and struggling with it's identity. We stayed with friends in rooms 18 & 19... More

Among arriving at this resort, my partner and I were promptly greeted at the front desk and given information on the resort and local taxis. This property was clean, staff was friendly, and the location was convenient for most city activities!

I've been to Colours several times now. I always make it my jumping-off point for my trips to Costa Rica. The staff is excellent - very friendly and very responsive...their knowledge of the area is extensive. Their knowledge of gay nightlife in the capital is also extensive. They can direct you to the right place on the right night. San... More

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
