Hidden gem in the city. Andrea was extremely accommodating and friendly. The rooms are nice and beds comfortable. The breakfast was typical Costa Rican breakfast and was very good. There is secure parking for one or two vehicles within the property which was very convenient because we had a rental car.
I’ve had the pleasure of staying at Casa Tropical a handful of times. It is a perfect jumping off point for a Costa Rican vacation. Close to the airport in a very nice quiet neighborhood Casa Tropical offers very charming, clean and comfortable rooms. The staff is very accommodating and can arrange tours and recommend good restaurants. Breakfast is also included with the room. The rates are very reasonable and the management led by Andrea and her husband Victor work hard to make your stay a pleasant one. I was there on family business and they offered to take me out one evening to watch a UFC fight at a nearby Bar/Restaurant. They really didn’t have to do that but I went with them and had a blast. I’ve stayed at many hotels in San Jose but I really prefer the home away from home feeling I get when I stay at Casa Tropical. …
We stayed for just a night but the staff was very friendly and helpful. Andrea the hotel manager was friendly and warm person. Breakfast was awesome and the cook accommodated all our request. Would recommend staying here to anyone visiting SJO
Nice little hotel in good residential neighbourhood with locked gates and a small court yard for sitting out. The breakfasts were good and the staff very friendly and accomodating. The kitchen in the room was minimal but enough for basic cooking, and the place is easy walking distance (about a mile) from both the town and CPI language school.
Spacious apartment suites with kitchenette. Carlos and his staff are incredibly helpful, friendly and courteous. Feels like a home environment. Delicious breakfast every morning. Excellent views of the surrounding volcanos and mountains. I would recommend to anyone visiting Costa Rica.
Peaceful and relaxing place. You have everything you need in your room. Delicious breakfast and really friendly staff, if you ever need something they inmediatly help you. The price is really good as well. Totally recommended.
Excellent value and location. Relaxed, quiet, serene accommodation. Close to airport. Safe and secure area. Friendly staff, good breakfast. Grocery store nearby. Uber services available to/from downtown San Jose. Will definitely stay here again
I’ve stayed in San Joaquin de Flores several times over the past 20 years. This trip was my first time to stay at Los Volcanes. I as delighted! I was studying Spanish at CPI as I’ve done before, and enjoyed striking up conversations in Spanish with the employees, all warm and friendly people. My only complaint about the place was the neighbors’ dogs that would intermittently bark. I resolved that with a white noise app on my iPad. My favorite restaurant in the town San Joaquin de Flores is Super Snacks, an unfortunate name that doesn’t do justice to some of the best casados in Costa Rica.
Most friendly staff ever! Very sweet little neighborhood, close to the airport but not in the city. Easy walking to San Joaquin Plaza, restaurants, and a bus ride away from San Jose or Heredia. I feel so safe at Vista, I never even really lock my door when I’m out and about!
I first stayed here when I was a student at CPI language school. Carlos, the owner, and his staff are sincerely nice people who prepare delicious breakfasts and support travelers’ needs. Other travelers I’ve met there were friendly and happy with the accommodations.
