I stayed in the two bedroom apartment with my two children. The apartment had a capacity of 5 but there was only 3 of us sleeping in the apartment, and sometimes only one since my two younger children spent the weekend away with the grandparents. We also were out of San Jose for 5 days visiting other places. I asked... More

We stayed at Aportotel la Sabana after long flights from the United States and Australia. The rooms are incredibly comfortable and the breakfast buffet was amazingly delicious. The hotel also offers an airport pickup, which is really helpful. The hotel is about a 20-30 minute walk from Central San Jose, which isn't too much if you don't mind walking. The... More

I've stayed at La Sabana a few times and it has always been fabulous. Breakfast is include and the staff is very helpful. They also offer a free shuttle to and from the airport. It's a great home base during your time in Costa Rica.

We stayed in La Sabana after a long flight from the US and it was a perfect introduction to Costa Rica. It is a charming hotel with cute clean rooms, fresh water stands everywhere, and a lovely courtyard. The staff were very friendly and the breakfasts are included in a very reasonable price and were the best we had during... More

Really good. Nothing to complain about! We had a delightful journey and were walking distance from the main attractions. The only bummer(which we can totally understand) is that we had the view of a parking lot. But overall, great service, great food, great hotel. Thanks for the great time!

What a surprisingly lovely hotel for such a cheap price ($137)! Stayed here for one night only, but wish it had been for longer. Arrived a bit early and room wasn't ready yet. Concierge stored our bags, gave us towels, and plied us with cookies, freshly squeezed juice, and cafe con leche while we waited. We changed into bathing suits... More

The Family apartment was perfect for our group of 5 - comfortable beds and appropriate amenities. It was our last night in San Jose, and the staff made sure we had access... More
