Our group of 15 stayed at the hotel. We checked in at the end of week in Costa Rica prior to returning to the States. We had not made arrangements for dinner, but they quickly made arrangements for the chef to return to the hotel to prepare dinner just for our group. The chicken lasagna was amazing. The best meal...

The room was spacious, the pool was beautiful, food was delicious, and the grounds are so well maintained. Nice quiet location and perfect for a location near the airport. Plus it is in great proximity to Zoo Ave!

We reserved this hotel for a 24 layover before we headed home. I wanted close enough to the airport, but not too close. This was perfect! It is an oasis and felt very safe.

Lovely, quiet place to stay close to SJO airport (far enough away that jet noise is not a problem). It is close to a street with several small places to eat, if you want variety. We stayed after arriving at the airport and then again the night before departure. The breakfast (included in price of room) was great each morning.... More

We stayed here the first and last nights of our family vacation. The breakfast is great, offering both Tico and continental options. If your flight is early and your shuttle leaves before the dining room opens, they'll pack you something to go.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and to let us know how much you enjoyed your stay in a superior room.
