From the hotel staff, to the room, the breakfast buffet, the pool and grounds, the centralized location and availability of restaurants and a super market (all within a 2 minute walk) make this the ideal location to stay in or near the San Jose area. PERFECT!!!!!! 5 Stars!

Over the road numerous restaurants to suit... More

Nice little place, nothing fancy, sort of on the motel side of quality. All tile floors, no bedroom carpet, gigantic walk-in shower was best feature. Nice bed, good pillows, noisy air conditioner. Staff I encountered was nice. Decent breakfast with OK variety.

I flew in to San Jose. After clearing immigration and customs I packed my luggage out the door to the mass of humanity. I was never so happy to see my name on a sign from the hotel shuttle driver! He stepped right up and helped me. The ride to the hotel took about 10 minutes. The check in was... More

Stayed here on the first and last nights of our trip to Costa Rica on a tour. Hotel is very clean with AC and a nice pool. Rooms are spacious and have a flat screen TV. Huge walk in tiled shower too. The best free breakfast I've seen. Better than in the states. Would recommend.
