I booked using the Expedia mobile site, so I got an extra discount to make the price $71/night for one person for a king room ($80 with taxes). Very comfortable and stylish room, with safe, lotion (though small), fluffy clean towels, and nice big shower with plenty of hot water. The location is excellent for flying in or out ~ very convenient to the SJO airport (but it costs - see below).
The only problem was the Expedia mobile site - I was on my tablet, but was not able to see the date I was booking. I aimed for the next night and actually got the same date that I was making the booking. Not good for a clearly non-refundable price, and no phone access at the time. When I arrived the next day at the hotel, Mr Antonio Cubillo, on the front desk, very patiently and kindly helped me contact Expedia on his phone and accepted my penalty payment for last night as the payment for tonight. I really thought I had lost the money!
I should mention that the shuttle to the SJO airport from this hotel is about $25 - there is no free shuttle. Too bad. Even a moderately priced shuttle would be acceptable. Also, no pool.
Another nice touch - Mr Cubillo gave me tokens for the dryer at no charge.
