I stayed at Colours Oasis Resort my last night in Costa Rica with my father. What a breath of fresh air this hotel was compared to the other one we stayed at in San Jose when we first arrived in Costa Rica! The lobby area is done up really nicely, the pool area (although we didn't swim) was clean and... More

My friend and I stayed here one night between flights to Puerto Jimenez. The hotel is very beautifully decorated. Don't be fooled by the outside! The room was a good size and the bathroom was gorgeous. The pool area is very nice with a great bar area for a nightcap. I wish our stay was longer. The staff is wonderful... More

This is our 2nd stay at this hotel. James, the owner, is super friendly as well as the rest of staff. I felt like we were old friends upon my 2nd stay. The pool is cool and the jacuzzi was warm, all very nice. We had a large downstairs room close to the pool. We stayed here at the hotel... More

Stayed here for one night. The place is modest, so don't expect like an all inclusive resort experience. For the price, it goes way above expectations. Clean rooms, beautiful pool, decent atmosphere. Shuttle service is a bit expensive, but fine, the driver is nice and the drive is quick from the airport. Hansel at the front desk is gorgeous, and... More

Colours is a good choice if you are going to stay in San Jose. It is close to everything while located in a more tranquil setting. Unique comfortable and friendly. Choose Colours, it's a wonderful place!

I read all of these rave reviews before coming and was expecting so much more then I got. When we first arrived our room wasn't ready as we arrived 45 min earlier than they expected they had us wait in a lounging area for over an hour, even past our check in time. I read a review on here right... More

Let's face it...as far as capitol cities go, San Jose ranks at the bottom of the list. However, if you must pass through the place you must stay at this hotel. Nestled on the outskirts just 15 minutes from downtown it is a gem of a find. Unassuming from its grey exterior, all that changes when you walk into the... More

My partner and I stayed at this property at the beginning and end of our Costa Rica vacation. We used the airport transfer service ($30), and the driver was punctual and courteous (there is a quite a bit of chaos outside Juan Santamaría airport, so arranging a ride in advance is not a bad idea). The two rooms we stayed... More

My experience at Colours Oasis was very positive. This hotel is in a good location. Very close to downtown but in a quieter/safe location. Taxi's are easy to obtain and they come very fast. The hotel grounds are very beautiful. The food there was very good. Breakfast was included, Dinner's were tasty. I had the Nachos and Pizza. It was... More
