First of all, there is nothing near this hotel, but a walmart. So don't plan on leaving the hotel unless it's by cab. It's a new hotel so looks may fool you but the bed was sooo uncomfortable. We stayed here one night out of 7 nights we were here in costa rica and what a disappointment. The people here were rude also, we went down for breakfast and were told the "buffet" breakfast was $10 p/p, which included rice, scrambled eggs (probably out of a box) and super greasy bacon. It looked disgusting. when i booked the hotel it said breakfast was included. After some confusion with the staff, they told us were were entitled to the "american breakfast" which included 2/3 items in the buffet--the eggs, bacon, sausage, and hashbrown, it was so greasy, hardly edible, we toasted some bread and had that with jam. Then to top everything off...we had late checkout set for 3pm. The staff called our room once at 11:50---we were hung up on. Then again called us at 12:45 to say, check out was at 12pm, when i said to the lady, we had late check out scheduled she was like oh let me see...then came back to phone and said ohhh your right. Did not apologize, just said ok have a good day then. The first part of our trip we stayed in san jose, closed to everything, restaurants, shopping, nightlife...right out side of our hotel...it was an added bonus.
The pool there is really small...maybe big enough for 5 people. Anyways, do your self a favor and stay elsewhere if you would like to enjoy your time in costa rica and not be stuck in a hotel room staring at 4 walls for 2days.
