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

I don't give out 5 stars very often but the owner of this place went out of his way. We used a room but also we camped in our camper-van in his car-park. He charged $8usd for camping and is happy for other overlanders to stay here. The rooms are spacious and clean with large bathrooms although we only used... More

Like an earlier reviewer, I made an extended stay of almost three weeks at the Hotel Zima. I had lived in San Isidro and the surrounding area more than forty years ago and wanted to get a feel for the bustling city it has become. Especially considering that I did not have a car, the location was perfect for me.... More

Clean, simple, and secure compound; reasonably priced and the BEST BEDS (and therefore the best night's sleep) we had in more than 5 weeks (1,000 miles) in Costa Rica. The attendants were helpful with our requests and even for a rather unsual situation. We will be making reservations here for our next trip. nmd
