Thank you so much for your advice in renting a 4x4 to travel Costa Rica, it was the best advice we got the whole trip. My advice to travellers is, arrange to pick up your vehicle outside San Jose and cab it to that location and return it to an outside location and cab it back to the hotel. Driving in San Jose can be confusing. The owner is the reason i chose this hotel. He is very helpful to new travellers. This is evident by his hotel reviews. I was very happy to see that all the good reviews were true. you can't say enough about his staff. The are amazing! Helpful, friendly, well trained, and will try their best to get you anything you might need. Even a corkscrew at 11pm at night. This hotel was the best one we stayed in. Beautiful room, clean, and very safe. The pictures don't do it justice. It's full of hand made iron, nice pool and hot tub. Nice little restaurant, good food. The serve a complimentary costa rican breakfast of eggs, rice and pinto beans, toast and fresh fruit, very good. You can't beat the price for what you get! It truly is a gem in a large intimidating city. We booked our first night and last night, and that was all we pre booked for the whole trip. Based on these reviews i wanted to talk to Thomas before we booked anything to see what he thought. He's a great judge of people and what would work best for you. We had no intention of renting a vehicle do to the comments about getting around, but Thomas recommended we do just that. It was the best choice for us. Get a GPS if you do this. The hotel itself and the staff are top notch. You come to Costa Rica a stranger, but once you walk into this hotel you feel like a friend. Thats a talent I've never experienced at another hotel. We'll definitely stay here every time we return.
Thanks so much Thomas! Tell the rest of your staff they are amazing! We'll be sure to recommend you to all of our friends.
