This is the second time this year we have stated here. Service is excellent. There is some street noise, but that is common in Escazu. We took two teen grand children to Costa RIca and spent 2 nights here. Free breakfast and airport pick up is a plus. There are 2 pools for entertainment. You can take a taxi cheap... More

I spent a week at this property in June of 2014. It's worthy of a five star review, but I have a couple of small suggestions for the owners. The property is in a great location in Escazu. If you're an American visiting San Jose for the first time, I'd recommend this area if you want to feel as close... More

Great Breakfast Huge Apartments for a single guy like me. Nice secure environment. Really helpful staff although language gets in the way sometimes :). Away from hustle of the main san hose downtown, so you do need a travel mode to go to malls and business districts. I will give it 4.5 stars

We have stayed here 5 or 6 times. It is always clean and the staff is hard working. It is nice to have breakfast each morning. The swimming pool and hot tub are great. The airport shuttle takes a lot of stress off coming and going back to the states.

We've spent several weeks at this wonderfull hotel. The staff is very nice and friendly. Breakfast is more than sufficient and fresh. The place even includes a tiny supermarket for basic necessities. Rooms are impeccable and very quiet. A true value for money.

We traveled with a large family - 6 in total and I booked on Expedia by chance so we could be in the same room. This was perfect for our 1 night on the way back to the states. We returned our car and took a cab back here because they have a shuttle to the airport. I had no... More

This place is good not great. The pool is nice, breakfast is a bit dull, rooms are comfortable and large. It's on a busy road that has lousy or no sidewalks, so walking anywhere is treacherous. The staff is quite helpful.

This is a four star facility but I give it five stars. The suites are large, modern, and kept immaculated clean. The rooms are comfortable, there is a kitchen with fridge, miscrowave, etc., and wi-fi access in the room is very good. This complex is very secure, and the employees are uniformly helpful and friendly. The small business center is... More
