I don't understand why in a place in this price point they cannot give each guest a couple of bottles of water? The hotel is old but well-maintained for its age. Being close to the airport it was really quite noisy in particular in the morning as it is only a short distance from a major roadway and the freeway.

Hotel is close to the airport that's why we chose it. Our stay was ok, breakfast buffet not to my liking, lot of sweets, beans etc and pricy, if you can eat a lot in the morning you might be ok, also had pancakes and scrambled eggs. Get a licensed cab back to the airport, much cheaper about 10$ US...

Great all around hotel/experience. The staff are kind and caring people who make you feel right at home! Rooms are clean, food is good, and all in a very convenient location. I have been staying there for 8+ years and would not stay anywhere else!

Loved our room - spacious and attractive - excellent water pressure and hot water (not always found in Costa Rica). The hotel made us feel like we were surrounded by green jungle and not city - well-designed! Will definitely return. Location very close to airport and convenient.

The service I experienced was not what I expect from a property that associates itself with the Hilton logo. I felt security was unnecessarily watching me. The gentlemen security staff could have been more cordial to me. The gentlemen staff in charge of the hotel restaurant and room service did an outstanding job. This resort also added gratuity to everything....
