Great breakfast. Great service. They need better t.v' s. Also the restaurant is good but does not offer anything special for lunch. I dk recommend this place for staying. The pool is great . But the jacuzzi is never on.

There is nothing grand about this hotel, but nothing wrong with it either in our perception. Its in walking distance of the Sabana Park or even down town if you are reasonably fit. Its also safe despite the central location. Our room was clean though a little lived in. No A/C in our room but in Costa Rica we did... More

We stayed here from Feb 10-19. We were with a group and this was booked beyond my control and some of the reports on here worried me a bit. Not to worry....this place is great. Its biggest point, I think, is the security. One way entrance into the hotel with an outer all like a fortress. An open center with... More

What a mess! Food trays with uneaten food left in the hallways; flooded hallways; old stained carpeting on the steps; dying plants on the landings. Now for the room; the AC died my first night in the room, never to work again; there were two used greasy bobby pins left on the shelf in the bathroom; roaches in the shower;... More

I specifically chose Hotel Torremolinos because of its swimming pool and hotel location. The hotel location is great, being walking distance from the main San Jose city park and the new national stadium. But most everything else about the hotel was not good. The swimming pool turned out to be cold, dirty and in need of water. The rooms and... More

The Manager Jerry Duran and his staff are very cooperative and would go out of their way to make you comfortable. Their complimentary breakfast needs some improvement. The neighborhood is quiet and taxis are available very quickly. Clemente is always on hand to take you around. My family and I enjoyed it there.

What more can I say than old blood stains and strands of hair on the cardboard box mattress that's supposed to serve as a bed. Two flat smelly pillows. The door didn't lock and the bathroom looks like a flashback to the fifties. Old, rusty, and gross. I'd rather sleep in my car. We ended up leaving after an hour.

They are completely refurbishing the hotel and I got a peak at one of the new rooms and it was a huge improvement. The neighborhood is good, safe, with restaurants, groceries, and a wonderful park nearby. Breakfast buffet was decent, stick with fruit for other meals, which were disappointing and expensive. Pool is a joke. Well priced.
