Really nice spot! Very clean and comfortable, with delightful seating around the pool by the killer garden. The hotel restaurant is worth going to wherever you stay -- very fresh and homemade pastas, pizzas, and salads with interesting and delicious combinations (and good wine options)! It was very easy to communicate with the hotel and access rides to and from the airport/rental car. They accommodated our yucky departure time very early Sunday morning, even providing personal fresh cut fruit cups to set us up for a good day.
Pros: Friendly staff Spacious room w/ two big beds Coffee machine in the room Free parking A/C in the room It’s very close to the airport—free airport shuttle service Cons: Not clean at all—hair on the liquid soap container, stains on the duvet cover, dirty towel, pillow case seemed used etc. There’s a restaurant on site which is loud in the evening and the hotel is also next to a relatively busy road No fridge in the room
Great airport hotel that feels local and not one of the big International corporate chains. Service was fantastic, rooms clean and very nice garden. The restaurant was excellent and appeared to be a local neighborhood restaurant for dinner. Very close to the airport and they offered covid tests and free airport shuttles.
We stayed at a standard airport hotel when we arrived last month in Costa Rica which was not satisfactory. Stayed at La Riviera for our departure. What a great find! Room was clean, newly renovated, and well appointed. The hotel overall is well maintained and the staff is exceptional.
A perfect non-airport, airport hotel. The free shuttleservice takes you from the airport in ten minutes to this quiet and well designed hotel with perfect rooms situated in a garden. The restaurant caters perfectly for the weary traveller, and serves a generous breakfast. Pizza's after arriving in the late evening were of almost Italian standards and a real treat! Staff is superfriendly and compared to many other restaurants and hotels in the region very quick and accurate; they know what the airport traveller needs. Aircon also worked without being noisy and that's a plus when you have just been in a plane for ten hours... It's a great hotel with a local touch, but don't expect it to be your final destination; it is catering for the traveller as the perfect airport hotel.
Stayed for a night in San Jose to get our covid 19 PCR tests. Our travel agent recommended this place as it was close to the test site. We are very glad we did. This is a pretty hotel with several sitting rooms, Nice pool. Room clean with large bathroom. We had breakfast lunch and Dinner at the restaurant. Food and service was very good. This hotel can be recommended for longer stays.
Nice hotel close to SJO. The room itself was very small, but the bathroom was a good size. Nice hot shower with powerful water pressure. We stayed by the pool, and you better have ear plugs if you’re a light sleeper. We expected some city noises, but a rooster screaming incessantly from 4:45-6 am was unexpected and extremely irritating especially when it woke up a neighborhood dog who wouldn’t stop barking. The free breakfast was very good, and the pizzas the night we stayed were huge! 2:1 Sangria happy hour was a hit with my wife. Nice views from tbe pool area as well. We’d stay again, but I’d bring earplugs next time.
The hotel staff were very responsive, friendly & accommodating. The airport shuttle was convenient and the on-site restaurant excellent. The room was comfortable & had a coffee maker & patio. I could not have been happier with this hotel!
I stayed here for two nights while visiting San Jose. The location was safe enough to walk around during the day and close enough to the city to explore by vehicle. The room was clean and comfortable and the outside common areas were pleasant. A lite breakfast was included with my room and served in their nice restaurant. Esteban checked me in and was very welcoming and helpful. I look forward to staying at this hotel again.
In the 20 years I have lived in this country I've stayed at many different airport hotels. I really like this place for overall location and comfort. Esteban checked me in and gave me the purtinent details. The friendly staff, a good restaurant and a quiet night were the details I appreciated. The neighborhood is nice to walk around to stretch your legs.
