I stayed for one night in this hotel at the beginning of an organised tour. The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful but I found the room to be drab, in need of a good spring clean!! The bed had seen better days and very uncomfortable, the room very noisy from street traffic. The restaurant staff again very friendly... More

We stayed here for 4 nights, 3 before our tour and one after and before the flight home. The reception is very helpful but I feel they are held back by the dated and arrogant approach of the management/owner who are definitely not in touch with the modern traveller's requirements. There was no facility to arrange a hotel taxi to... More

This hotel claims to be 4 star - it's not! The rooms need updating, our room had no air-conditioning, it was difficult to sleep over the noise of the traffic outside and worse was the awful artifical reek of plug-in airfreshner. If you like congealed, grey scrambled egg, then you'll love the delightful breakfast. Dinner was okay, but the constant... More

This hotel claims to be 4 star - it's not! Shabby rooms with features needing updating, air-conditioning units that make more noise than the traffic outside (which is saying something!) The whole hotel reeks of plug-in airfreshner. Dreadful breakfast and a dinner that wasn't much better. But above all, the most rude management I have ever encountered. After politely asking... More

We stayed at this property with a group of students at the conclusion of an organized tour. Understanding that it was a budget property and we had just returned from 10 days of jungle living, we were still frustrated at the lack of cleanliness and the outdated rooms. There were ant infestations everywhere in our room and we had to... More

Our travel group stayed at the Villa Tournon for two nights. The hotel is on a quiet street within walking access to a pleasant restaurant area and other popular areas of the city. After days without air conditioning or television in more of the rustic places, this was a nice change of pace. We had one of the new rooms... More

I stayed at this hotel as a starting point for a group tour, but also booked a separate night to arrive 1 night prior to the tour. Check in was quick and efficient with the reception greeting me by name as I got out the taxi. Breakfast consisted of the average breakfast buffet with popular items like sausages, cereals, fruit,...

We stayed here for one night, on the final night of our tour of Costa Rica. The lobby was clean and welcoming, but it was dark and in need of some brightening up. I liked how there were complimentary computers to use, and a lounge area. The pool area was nice, and felt like an oasis in the middle of... More

This hotel is deceptive. The décor of reception and restaurant areas is a bit old fashioned and dark, and the rooms although adequate are dated. But for one night before the start of a holiday or at the end before flying home it's fine. It is conveniently located and tour buses pick people up from there. The food is good... More

I stayed here probably like most people for a one night transit on the way in and another on the way out of Costa Rica. For that purpose this hotel is ok. The bedroom was clean, albeit as previously reported a little dated now. The food was acceptable and there is a bar / restaurant, albeit it is dark and... More
