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

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....

I awoke in the night itching and when I turned on the light there were bedbugs EVERYWHERE! They we're crawling all over the bed and walls and we're huge. There was no one at the front desk to help me so I removed my stuff and had to wait until the morning before I could get help from staff. They... More

bond006, General Manager at Colours Oasis Resort, responded to this review

I find it absolutely incredible that a guest may do or say whatever they want in this forum without considering the truth or consequences of their comments. Colours does NOT have bedbugs. It was an unfortunate situation that occurred to this guest but it was not the fault nor responsibility of our establishment. This guest arrived for a final two... More

We stayed at Colours Oasis in October of 2014. So this review is a little late. It was a wonderful stay! A relaxing atmosphere where we could be ourselves. The staff are welcoming, hospitable and helpful, truly service with a smile. We had a large apartment style suite, kitchen, living room, large bathroom and large bedroom. Tons of closet space....

Lovely Hotel on the outskirts of San Jose. This place is really carried by the attentive and welcoming stuff. If you want to find a central point in SJ to explore that wonders of CR, look no further!

The resort really is an intimate tucked away "Oasis" outside of San Jose. Rooms are comfortable and inviting. Resort itself is eclectic. Food and thought to their menu is non existent. Seek elsewhere. Staff overall is the winning ingredient to this resort's success. Friendly and pleasant. Check it out. You'll be surprised. Appears regulars come back time and time again... More
