On my second stop in San Jose, I decided to try out Pangea, highly recommended in the guide book. Well, they don't have 3 properties anymore. It's only one. There is no mechanical bull as well folks. There is a pool although I wasn't there long enough to use it. Again, there was "only a $28 room" left. It was again one of the smallest rooms i've ever seen but at least it didn't smell moldy this time! I checked out the place and it the bar looked nice, the place was clean, they had tons of internet access and a pool table. The computers were locked down though so you couldn't connect your camera to transfer photos, I was cordially advised that I could do that from the internet cafe across the street. The bathrooms were tidy. (Costa Rica doesn't have a toilet paper problem interestingly, most places have tons of it). At the bar there was a tv and a very loungy atmosphere. The view was ok, nothing special. It was a bit more of a party place here, which is fun. I didn't stay long enough but i'm sure it was a nice place in the day too. Staff weren't rude to me...but they were curt at times. It was nicely painted and decorated.
