We had two nights at the hotel when we arrived from UK on 20th of January. Pickup from the airport was just what was needed after a long journey. Room was just right and the breakfast excellent, superb eggs cooked to order by the smiling ladies. We are returning there for two nights on our way back to UK so... More

I chose to stay here for my three night Costa Rican stay, mainly to be close to the airport and also to experience San Jose. This hotel is on the outskirts of the center of the city which after being in the center of San Jose you will realize is a good thing. The city is busy and crowded but... More

We spent only one night here at the end of our Costa Rica trip, and flew out early in the morning. We rented a two bedroom apartment with kitchenette to accommodate our party of 4 adults and one 2.5 year-old. The complimentary airport shuttle starts very very early, and adds to what is already a great value in travel accommodation.... More

We stayed in a 2br apatment at La Sabana for 3 nights at the beginning of our Costa Rica trip. The airport pick-up and courteous efficient check-in was a boon as we had flown straight through from Australia via Los Angeles and El Salvador (more than 24 hours travel). The room was quiet and comfortable and the staff very helpful... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night at the end of our 3 week tour of CR. It was very relaxing and the staff were excellent. The pool area was calm and relaxing (though the pool is very cold!), the bedroom was comfy and the breakfast was tasty. They do a free airport drop-off and pick-up.

Thank you for your comments! We are so glad we were able to help you relax and wind down at the end of your visit to Costa Rica.

The manager of this hotel should be hired to manage the best hotels in the world. How can be possible that you pay less than $80 per room and you get: a superclean room completely renovated, all bathroom amenities, pool, gardens, the best staff, the best breakfast and parking. Ah, also you have shuttle to the airport included. Really? And... More

This is a real gem in San Jose. The staff are very helpful and always smiling. The breakfast is delicious, the pool beautiful, and the rooms comfortable. I was all over Costa Rica for three weeks and this hotel just felt cosy like home for the start and end of my trip.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at La Sabana. Once we arrived, the front desk gave us a handout of excursions, which picked us up right from the hotel. We had a blast!
