Makes you feel at home. Facilities are ok. Not a modern style but well keeper. Service is outstanding. Starting at the chek in, service ladies, gate man, everyone has a greeting for you and are looking for help you. GReat playground, just what children need. They are able to solve whatever need you have during your stay.

The front desk folks are very helpful with tour bookings and pleasant. There is a nice little pizza place called Pane e Vino just down the road towards the left. For vegetarians who don't... More

We stayed twice, loved the amenities and the care provide by staff. Very accommodating, beautifully maintained suites and grounds, they really looked after all our needs from arranging airport transportation for us and for our guests, to booking tours, recommending private drivers, changing rooms for us mid-stay, arranging VIP lounge passes for the flight home. Location is excellent, close to... More

The Apartotel & Suites Villas del Rio are comparable to a Residence Inn ... in that they are designed to provide an apartment, rather than a basic hotel room. Having stayed in both the Escazu Residence Inn and Apartotel & Suites Villas del Rio, there is no comparison! The Residence Inn in Escazu is good,,,but The Apartotel & Suites Villas... More

Free breakfast each morning with fruit, cheese, sausage croissants and toasts and cereal. 2 pools, both of which are nice. Plenty of chairs. Hot tub next to the upper pool.

We really enjoyed the one night we spent there. Area around it is great with nice shopping and nice restaurants. Breakfast is basic and no restaurant and only a bar. You can however order food from all restaurants around. Large kitchen if you want to cook your on food.

We have stayed here about 10 times now and love it. We have to go to San Jose at least every couple of months, if not more, and in the last year this has become "our spot". If you have young children, they couldn't be happier with the massive rooms to run around, the pool, the playground, etc. The location... More
