Excellent location, near to downtown and all commercial areas. Good food, comfortable rooms, clean, wifi, parking lot with guard. I think I received what I paid for. I recommend this hotel in your trip to C.R.

We were just guests of the Hotel Colaye. We stayed one night at the beginning of our vacation and two nights at the end. It was booked for us through an EF Tour program (educational school tours). It is definitely not a hotel I would have booked personally but it did provide fine accomodations for our stay. Issues that we had included no hot water one evening when we needed to shower. Although WIFI is free it was not available in our room, it did work just outside the door though. There was mildew and mold on the ceiling of our bathroom. Not all rooms have A/C, there are ceiling fans in the non A/C rooms but our first night was very warm and the ceiling fan offered no relief. There is a snack bar available all day that served lattes, snacks and meals. That was nice to have. Front desk staff was very helpful and easy to work with. One major warning I would issue is that you inquire about tour groups. There were two groups while we were there - about 40 students each - and I did hear a guest complaining about all the noise. 80 high schoolers - you can imagine!

We have stayed here numerous times and every time has been a different experience. I understand that they hotel is under new ownership and has undergone some renovations, but silly 'decor' renovations .... nothing really important! (new towels in the bathroom would be a good start...replacing the thread-bare ones that I would be using as rags).
Every time we have been here, the WIFI has never worked in the rooms. This trip, the WIFI worked in our room for a few hours, but was painfully slow! The router is right outside the rooms and should not be a problem....why not fix it?
Our room in the past was a kitchenette and fell into the 'bargain' price, this time, the kitchenette was a bit more expensive and we only used the refrigerator....so according to the web site, the room we got was supposed to have a fridge, but it didn't and for the first time, we did not get AC. We got a room that had a pigeon roosting on a window sill, our door was really hard to open and close and needed all our weight to get in and out and the last morning, there was a plumbing problem in the room next door and the maids swept the overflowing water right under our door and were flooding our room! We just about fell hydroplaning on the water covering the tile floor and all our luggage and bags had to be put up onto the futon couch to avoid the water!
The day staff was very helpful and kind the evening staff (especially the main desk clerk) was another story....the personality of a brick.....
If it wasn't so convenient to our dentist office I would not stay here....but it is and seems like the best choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with AC and a fridge when you check in because you can't specify this when you re...

Myself and my husband stayed here for two nights in November as part of a large group. The hotel was very nice, clean and comfortable and the staff were very helpful. We stayed here after a long flight and were pleasantly suprised at the standard of the hotel on our arrival. Breakfast the next morning was fine.
Having spent a week in another part of Costa Rica we returned to the hotel for our last night before an early morning transfer back to the airport, and once again were happy with the hotel. The only issue was with the group dinner in the hotel on the last night. The meail was nice, but the service was slow and the bar ran out of glass and drinks very quickly. The staff were obviously not perpared for a large group even though it had been pre booked!
