We had spent a week at the mikanda hotel in quepos and then another week in la fortuna at the Tabacon. Both were excellent. We were to stay one night in San Jose before returning to North Carolina. Our travel agent screwed up and this is where she booked us. Not a good hotel at all. We had the suite... More

Staff were great if you book in US dollars pay in dollars. The restaurant food was good and service great However pay in colonies the exchange rates are NOT based on the current daily exchange of 538c = $1 but 528=$1 so pay with a card or in colonies. A nice hotel for the money many rooms have been updated... More

For an inter city hotel this hotel is a decent option for a few days. I would stay here again. Positives: location, price, breakfast, bilingual staff and free parking. Negatives: small, awkward room layout, small bathroom, and room in need of renovation.

Stayed as part of G adventure tours. Nothing impressive, the pool looked nice (never went in), the beds were not comfy, but the worst thing was the noise, it was like sleeping on the street, even ear plugs couldn't blocked out the sound. Being in the first floor didn't help, but the windows were basically non-existent. As a restaurant itself,... More

We stayed here before departing on an STA tour, we checked in a couple of nights early. Being on a tour I believe we were put in a basic room, on a dark corridor next to a very noisy maintenance room. We arrived with tools outside our door and men working in the maintenance room which had a window through... More

I stayed at this hotel at the beginning and end of a Gadventure tour I went on. It's an adequate hotel with a friendly and helpful staff, not to mention a not half bad restaurant. However, the place does have its flaws. One thing is the location. It's on a side street and while it's only a few blocks away... More

First off, the people who come with G Adventures all seem to get the worst rooms. We stayed for four nights and I booked the place myself on Booking.com for $65/night including breakfast for two people. Our room was one of the newly renovated ones on the top floor and it's really quite nice and everything looked exactly like the... More

Hotel Autentico has some beautiful pictures on their website and booking sites, but be forewarned, those are the more expensive, renovated units. If you are also, like most of the reviewers here, on a G Adventures tour and starting/ending at this hotel, you will NOT be in the renovated rooms but their standard rooms. So have that expectation in mind,... More

We stayed here at the start and end of our tour with GAdventures and I wouldn't come back just to stay unless we payed for an updated room. We were told the breakfast was included/wasn't included/was included... no one had the same story. The hotel wasn't near much...it kind of seems away from any attractions and there aren't too many...
