Don't let the title put you off, this is an excellent hotel.
It certainly aims for a business clientele, with it's own convention centre, but ought to suit the tastes of almost any international traveler. The staff are friendly and attentive, the food is above average for hotel fare and the rooms are well equipped and comfy - a nice touch in my ground floor room was an adjustable mattress, press a button and the firmness changes.
As a conference centre I would highly recommend - everything worked and the high speed Internet (free) was welcomed by all. There is also a 'casino' but this is so far from Vegas that I would recommend you avoid the dive.
So why not a 5?
Well the location is not very inspiring, situated on a main (noisy) road and surrounded by nothing of interest and I object to the treatment of smokers. I realize that the law determines where you can and can not smoke but forcing people to cross a road and stand in a car park in the rain (which it does a lot in Costa Rica) seemed rather brutish.
And finally the decor which just did not work for me. Imagine you owned a multi story car park and decided to become a hotelier but only had 80% of the required budget. The result is that every fifth wall is bare concrete - even in the bedrooms. I am sure it was done deliberately in the name of art but for me it just looked unfinished.
But I would certainly be happy to return.
