I stayed at this hotel in late June, 2013. It is an incredible bargain for a central San Jose Hotel. The rooms are very well kept. The renovation has been done beautifully. They are certainly very clean, as well. The staff is friendly and helpful. Guy, the manager, is right on top of the slightest hint of a problem. Like... More

I stayed five days and had a very comfortable stay. The people were very friendly and very accommodating. I must say that the highlight of my stay was two massages by their in house masseuse. Yorleny is her name and she a licensed massage therapist that is as skilled as any I have experienced.

We recently stayed at the Mona with an entire sports team for an event and we could not be happier with the attentiveness and service provided. The hotel looks great and while the wifi was spotty we had the same problem at any location in Costa Rica. Our stay was personally overseen by Guy and he made sure that we... More
