We have been living in very rural, rustic Costa Rica for two months and are on our way home back to Canada. The El Rodeo has been a great place for us to re-acclimatize ourselves to civilization and conveniences that we have not had. We appreciate the bug free rooms, the clean sheets and bedding, pressure in the showers and... More

Breakfast was good, room was clean. The compound is an oasis of an industrial section of the city. Great as an airport hotel. The restaurant is 5 star. The advertised amenities are not available all day. Many areas to lounge with a group.

Nice large room with comfortable beds, good shower, and nice decor. We were first given a room with a strange odor. But we were immediately moved to another room which was fine. The morning breakfast was delicious with fresh fruits and lots of other choices. Wonderful location near the airport for an early morning flight home. Would definitely go back.

This is a great carnivore option - full selection of meets. The food is prepared fresh - the ribeye is very good. The service is attentive, decent drinks and wine. The overall cost makes this a reasonable option and great value for a meet fix. The only downside is the ambiance is open air - it can get hot and... More

Phenomenal hotel. The wood...beautiful. Wonderful place. My brother brought me to CR as a wedding gift. We stayed in La Fortuna and Jacó. This was our last hotel. Everything was stained wood. It was beautiful. The bathrooms were gorgeous. The rooms were clean and neat. The amenities are quite nice, and so was breakfast. This place was special.

I am not a city person at all and I have no idea how people can enjoy traffic, congestion, and loud perpetual noise. On a recent trip I needed to wait in town for a single night to wait for some friends to catch up and decided on El Rodeo. The hotel is right off a main busy road, however,... More

Tried the airport chains and tiny cheap hotels for the brief sleep and early departures often required for SJO. This hotel has it all, efficient and friendly staff and no nerd to leave grounds for an excellent and reasonable meal. Picked up the complementary breakfast to go, returned rental car and through security in 1:20.

We usually stay at the American airport hotel chains when we are in San Jose. This hotel was substantially cheaper and we are so glad we gave it a chance. It has so much more character and far more variation in near by dining choices. The rooms were cute and clean and a full breakfast was included. I highly recommend... More

I stayed at this hotel twice within 2 months, and to be fair to them they were in the middle of refurbishing and so it was not the cleanest of places. A lovely setting with traditional, comfortable rooms with good AC and TV. Poolside area could do with improvement and comfier chairs, but overall not too bad. No AC or... More
