Colours is wedged into a low key residential area on the western edge of the city. There is little of interest in reasonable walking distance. Like most buildings here, it is very inward looking. Virtually no windows look onto the street. Indeed, our room, supposedly the best in the place, had no windows at all. We did have a patio... More

We had not known it was a gay hotel, my friend and I stayed, first night we didnt like our room as the dogs next door were barking a lot and sounded loud due type of ceiling in the bathroom. We asked for another room and they accommodated and was much better... food was ok, staff were excellent and we... More

My wife and I picked this hotel looking for something different, quaint, and friendly. We had never before known of such a place, much less stayed in one, but it met our expectations. Everyone we met was outgoing, kind and social and we never felt out of place. The rating is based on the facilities, which are average. While the... More

Rooms are very small. We had picked a room specifically because it had air conditioning. The air conditioner barely worked and was so noisy that we could update barely stay in the room with it on. Balcony was encased in a steel bar cage. Tiles in the balcony were all broken and furniture looked like it might have been new... More

My husband and I wanted our first visit to Costa Rica to be special and we found Colours resort online. We did our research and contacted them via email. We made an eight day vacation plan entirely through Colours. Thanks to the help their team we had an amazing first impression of CR. We were met at the airport and... More

This small hotel is located in a neighborhood in San Jose and was everything I could want and more. It was quiet and secure. The rooms are more than adequate and the bathroom in my room (#18) was all I could hope for and then some! The staff was always helpful and I must especially mention Liz, who was willing,... More

We stayed here for one night and did read good things about this hotel. The staff was friendly but the room was very dissapointing. Dark, small and desparely in need of an update. The breakfast was ok no more no less. So no the best place we've stayed in

Just spent two days at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The pool area is wonderful to sit around, relax and have a drink from the bar. We met a very diverse group of people. New restaurant on the premise will make it even better. They can arrange shuttle to and from airport easily. Very reasonably priced.

In the middle of a residential area is a charming garden hotel. All the rooms surround the rooms. The interior rooms have sitting areas for reading or just relaxing. Asian decor. The rooms are airy and air conditioner was not needed. Deck chairs on the roof for sunbathing. The staff was helpful and very nice. Beds a bit hard for... More

I have stayed at Colours before, and am always really impressed with the staff. It's a rare thing to be greeted by name - but every morning I was greeted by a 'Buenos Dias, Cory' by Liz. She isn't the only one, as I have yet to meet anyone less than friendly there. They also know San Jose inside and... More
