If you are planning a visit to Costa Rica, I would strongly recommend the Holiday Inn Express Forum at Santa Ana. There are several reasons; first and foremost, the staff there are real friendly and very personal. Dixiana and Priscilla at front desk are extremely cooperative and making sure that you are comfortable. Second, the other staff are wonderful too...

We stayed here for the first and last night of our holiday in Costa Rica and it was perfect. We used it to catch our breath after the 11 hour flight there, and to sort things out with our luggage etc before our flight home and it did just the trick. Rooms were nice, big comfy bed, ok breakfast and...

Service was professional and friendly at check-in/-out. We stayed overnight (arriving in mid-afternoon and checking out super-early for a flight). Our room was very clean, in a quiet hallway, right next to the pool area entrance. Excellent wi-fi throughout. A security door required room keys in order to access the hallways where hotel rooms were located...I liked this extra security...

Good Biz hotel with great breakfast. Close to an office park Forum and many decent restaurants. It is located relatively close to the airport which makes flying in and out quite easy. For tourists this part of town is not very attractive. Try La Ostra next door for ceviche!
