I was shocked when I read reviews of this place. I think this used to be a cruddy hotel and they are renovating the rooms now. I'm apparently I. One of the new ones because it is absolutely flawless. Our room is a standard room and it is like an apartment. Very large. Gorgeously decorated. Comfy beds. Modern furnishings. Wifi... More

The hotel is good, nothing extraordinary. The worst part in my opinion was the breakfast which didn't offer anything nice, but it was only 8 USD so... All in all a good hotel but you shouldn't plan on spending too much time in it. Do stuff instead! Many in the staff are good at English.

Absolutely awful, shoddy rooms:P Obviously nothing done with most of the rooms since the 1980s, dirty linen, no fridge and worst of all, no A/C - tortuous for someone with asthma. No safe to put valuables, security consisted of one crummy door lock which could easily be picked; especially unnerving in an unsavoury part of town.

I was at the hotel for a ARCR seminar and it did all I needed. It is conveniently located in San Jose on the NW corner convenient to the park and central city. In only costs $5 by taxi to get anywhere. The rooms were clean but not fancy. In fact, some might like the feel and call it traditional.... More

Stayed at this hotel on the first night and last night of a G Adventure tour. On the first night we were given a standard room (room #1). The room was very basic, in need of a renovation and had shower pressure better suited to a car wash. There was no A/C and with the window open at night the... More

We started and ended a g-adventures tour in this hotel. It was a nice place, with a nice pool and restaurant. Had hot water, nice beds and were very accomadating. Front desk was able to answer questions and helped us rent a car. I enjoyed my stay very much.

This hotel has everything you'll need: a clean, comfortable bed, quiet room, tv, coffee maker, hair dryer, an outdoor pool and good wifi. Breakfast was $8 US and the choice was pretty basic, therefore a bit over-priced for what you get. Although it was nice to have a coffee maker in the room, they failed to give me any coffee... More

Stayed here twice when I was in Costa Rica. The first time the room was dated but it had all the amenities that I required. The second time I received a renovated room, which was much nicer but it was a 400 series room, and was difficult to find as it was on the third floor. The staff are friendly... More

This was our second stay with Hotel Autentico (Hotel Torremolinos) and just as before, we had a very pleasant stay. The complimentary breakfast is very good as is the cafe' con leche. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcome and appreciated both in the restaurant and at the front desk. Lilliana was... More
