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

We stayed at Colours in March of this year and had a really nice time. As many have mentioned before the staff here are great - friendly, hard working and helpful. Someone was always cleaning and making sure that guests were attended to. They were very helpful in explaining the bus service and how to get around town, and eventually... More

I have been at this resort for almost a week and have several more days before I have to depart. I will definitely come back! The room and facilities were clean and inviting. The staff have been extremely courteous and helpful, be it arranging excursions, serving breakfast later than general when I overslept, or arranging a massage. The clientele have... More

After planning a trip to Costa Rica in March of 2015 I found Colours Oasis Resort on a website for gay-friendly accommodations in Latin America. When I arrived at the hotel I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly atmosphere and the warm welcome and immediately felt like I was at home. The hotel was very clean, safe, quiet and charming....
