“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I stayed here for two nights after arriving in San Jose. The hotel is 10 minutes from the airport. Cose enough to be convenient, far enough to not be bothered by the planes. The place was in great condition, seemed fairly new, and was very clean. The pool and lounge area are beatiful and not to be missed. The absolute best thing about this hotel was the staff. Everyone was helpful, friendly and genuinely happy. It was obvious they enjoyed working there and it showed in how they treated the guests.

This hotel is beautiful... I have just checked in and was greeted with a warm towel. Our room wasn't quite ready yet so we were given a key to the executive lounge. Just beautiful! Can't wait to explore the property!

It is a very short cab ride from the airport, which is a welcome relief after a long flight from the US. This is actually a former coffee plantation, and you can tell the moment you arrive. I was pleasantly surprised how quiet it was, given it's proximity to the airport. But you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.

The old style rooms are very cool - the kids liked all of the decorations around the hotel. The restaurant was OK - mostly American fare. Good for the kids, but boring for the adults. But the service was great.

If you need to pass through San Jose, on to your travels elsewhere in the country, this is a great option. Much preferred versus navigating into the city. The traffic, noise, pollution - I have done that before and I'm glad we didn't do it again.

This is a beautifully hotel constructed to look like an old spanish hacienda. The staff is magnificent. Our hotel room was beautiful, but the carpet was cleaned leaving a really strong chemical odor throughout our five-day stay. We were there for a wedding, but the place is close to nothing at all. It is expensive to get out - $25 to the City. You cannot go walking off the premises, as it is all surrounded by industrial-type dwellings and empty lots; and then a hike up to the main highway, which again is all lined-up with manufacturing companies of every kind. I did not see sidewalks anywhere. The food is quite good, but you will soon tire of it, as the food in their four restaurants comes from only one kitchen! The best thing is their cocktails. They have great bartenders--who will fix you anything and then some more.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a better view.

It is a different concept hotel that I am normally use to by using Marriot Hotel chain.
The hotel itself is o.k., what I did not liked are the rooms, I found it old stylish.
I spent two night and went for a business trip and I did not enjoyed the additional values of the hotel such as Golf driving range (I saw it from my room and looks nice) and Pools.
The breakfast was Buffett, but it was a nice buffett.
In the near entrance of the hotel there is a coffee shop, go there!! They have amaizing dessert, the best I ever tried in my life!!

En un hotel con concepto diferente a lo que estoy acostumbrado al utilizar la cade Marriott.
Estuve dos noches y en plan de viaje de negocios, por lo que no pude utilizar los valores agregados del hotel como el campo de golf (Se veía muy bien desde la habitación) o las piscinas.
el desayuno era Buffet, pero muy bueno.
Cerca de la entrada del hotel, hay una cafetería, no se la pueden perder, tienen los mejores postres que he probado en mi vida.

This place is awesome. It is less than 10 minutes from the airport. It has a great resort feel. It is a true gem nestled in the middle of the city. The staff were all great. The restaurant was amazing. Buffet but well worth the price. Try the Chef's Club for lunch, my wife says it may be the best sandwhich she has ever had. We will be back for sure.

Room Tip: As for an upgrade. We were bumped up to a suite for a minimal upgrade charge.

We have stayed at this hotel many times. It is charming, beautiful, has great views and wonderful food in all the restaurants. There is so much to do all around the area, and to come back to this hotel after a day of exploring and surround yourself with the luxury and beauty of this hotel is an added bonus.

Room Tip: You can take tours (our favorite is the Highlights tour). You can take a cab anywhere (negotiate pr...
