“no regrets!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

Really good. Nothing to complain about! We had a delightful journey and were walking distance from the main attractions. The only bummer(which we can totally understand) is that we had the view of a parking lot. But overall, great service, great food, great hotel. Thanks for the great time!

What a surprisingly lovely hotel for such a cheap price ($137)!

Stayed here for one night only, but wish it had been for longer.

Arrived a bit early and room wasn't ready yet. Concierge stored our bags, gave us towels, and plied us with cookies, freshly squeezed juice, and cafe con leche while we waited. We changed into bathing suits and enjoyed the (cold) pool and sauna for an hour until room was ready.

Service consistently exceptional here and was consistent with a top hotel.

The room itself was quite large- we had 1 bedroom with queen bed, 1 bedroom with twin beds, a living room with comfy couch/futon for 5th guest, and full well-stocked kitchenette. Comfy, clean, good fans and a/c.

Nice location right near park, stadium, walking distance to restaurants.

Breakfast included in price was lovely- fresh fruit and juices, omelettes, arroz con frijoles, toast, great coffee.

Shuttle to airport also included in the price (taxis are about $30) so that was an amazing savings.

Cannot imagine a better place to stay in San Jose!

We can't say enough good things about Apartotel la Sabana. The attentive staff went out of their way to make sure every part of our stay was excellent. The Family apartment was perfect for our group of 5 - comfortable beds and appropriate amenities. It was our last night in San Jose, and the staff made sure we had access to toast, yogurt, fresh fruit, juice, and coffee prior to our early departure for the airport in the morning. And our shuttle driver was waiting to whisk us to the airport, only a short 15 minute drive away. We would go out of our way to stay here again.

Thank you so much for your review!! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! My mother always said breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we are glad you could enjoy our early bird service. Hopefully next time your flight will depart a little later so you can enjoy our famous full tico style buffet. Thank you again and have a great day! Best regards!

My family of 5 stayed in the family apartment. It was clean and comfortable. The beds and pillows are especially comfortable. The pool here is nice and the staff is friendly and professional. They go out of their way to be helpful. For example, I was sitting by the pool while my daughter swam and one of the staff noticed I didn't have a towel so he brought me one. The hotel is located in a decent part of the city too and located conveniently close to the airport but not so close that the airplanes wake you up.

I have been staying at this hotel every time I go to Costa Rica. I love it! The staff are courteous, cordial and extremely helpful. The rooms are lovely. I usually have a studio so I can make some of my dinners there, but look forward to the breakfast every day. It is a wonderful place to stay and experience the graciousness of the Ticos.

Just returned from a one night stay at this hotel and I can't say enough about the service that this hotel provides. Upon arrival, we were offered a beverage to quench our thirst. We stayed in the family suite which overlooked the pool. Due to an early departure the next morning (4am), we asked about something to go and was told that there would be juice, coffee, fruit, toast, and yogurt for us. I felt guilty at 3am when I heard the gentleman preparing the items the next morning. They were also very helpful in trying to determine why our airline tickets didn't print out; they even called our airline company to make sure there weren't any issues. Our room was large and had everything that we needed to get a decent night sleep. The free shuttle to the airport arrived promptly and had us to the airport in plenty of time. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for such a great review! We are so glad we could offer you a great welcome and also a great farewell!! Please do not feel bad for our friendly front desk and security night personnel. It is a pleasure to be able to prepare an early breakfast for our guests having to leave before 6am. My mother always said, breakfast is the most important meal of the day!! It is so rewarding to have the opportunity to make your travels more enjoyable and much more when our guests value these efforts! We hope you will always give us a chance to pamper you and that we will be able to do so very soon! Thank you again and best regards!
