We stayed at the Courtyard the first night and the last two nights of our trip to Costa Rica. It was by far the nicest hotel we stayed at the whole trip.
The hotel is very new. The rooms are clean, the bathrooms are roomy and the staff is wonderful. Our airline lost our luggage and Antonio at the front desk called the airline for us (spoke with them in Spanish as we do not speak Spanish) and was able to have our luggage delivered to us at our next hotel. We also found Diego and Roberto very helpful!
The hotel is located next to a Walmart. It has everything from fresh baked goods to suncreen.
The hotel has a free shuttle to the airport that runs every 20 minutes starting at 4:00am. This allowed us to turn in our rental car the night before and save a days rental fee.
The hotel does have rooms with connecting doors for families, but does not have any roll aways. The hotel also has a laundry facility for guests. The parking is secure. The rooms were very quiet, we did not hear any noise from the room above us or the rooms next to us.
Not too far away is Plaza Real. It has a few restaurants that are great for dinner: La Fabbrica (pizza & pasta) and Los Antojitos (mexican).
I would definitely stay at the hotel again!
