I spent one night at the Best Western Hotel Zima on a business trip to San Isidro. I thought the room was top notch and the staff was well trained and extremely pleasant. Parking is ample and the WiFi is good, even in the room. I suspect noise could be a problem at times due to the pool and the... More

I arrived at this hotel as I had to spend an unexpected night in Perez. It was recommended by the restaurant in which I had lunch. The man behind the counter was very unfriendly. I said I would like a room with one bed. He said we do not have any. I said rooms or rooms with one bed. He... More

I booked here on Expedia, after flying to CR and driving from San Jose was a relaxing quaint place to stay in the city. It is tucked away about a block off of the main street, easy to get to, but quiet considering how close it is to the square. I walked everywhere but is a short taxi ride as... More

Great little place to stay just steps away from buses, restaurants and shops without feeling like you're in the city. The layout of the hotel creates a peaceful little courtyard. The kids loved the pool, and the staff was extraordinarily helpful and accessible. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area. The price was super reasonable... More

I loved Best Western Zima in Perez Zeledon. Very Nice rooms, clean big enough and the temperature was just right. I didn't get a room with AC but I didn't miss it. The internet is great, to me is a great plus( I'm talking 8 Mbps here). The downside is the pool is just too small. The food in the... More

I stayed there 9 nights and as an American that does not speak Spanish, I found the place to be very clean, safe, and a place I would come back if I return to the area. The owner is very hands on, and his staff are very attentive to their guests.

We've lived and travelled in Costa Rica for 15 years so we kind of know our way around. This hotel is, indeed, the best that San Isidro has to offer. Just a few blocks off the main highway, it is surprisingly quiet in a beautifully tranquil setting. Every staff member we encountered was welcoming, helpful, and very friendly. The room... More

I've stayed here numerous times in 2014 and I will keep coming back. As a volunteer living in rural Costa Rica, this place is a treat and a little feeling of home. Everything is clean, the rooms are spacious with Cable TV, hot water showers, comfortable beds, and a desk. There is a pool and a lovely restaurant with breakfast... More

As a Costa Rican, I know what to expect in towns like San Isidro. Hotel Zima was far above our expectations. Everything is neat. Clean, well-appointed rooms, nice swimming pool, and the food and service at the restaurant were excellent. Although right next to San Isidro's main street, the place is really quiet. Our only complaint: no bedside reading lamps.... More
