This hotel is now closed and for sale. Could be a nice hotel if someone managed it correctly. Actually, a nice property. Want to buy a hotel? Check this one out! This hotel had 27 rooms, as I recall, and was build from scratch about 6 or 7 years ago. They put in a lot of money but I think... More

Having remembered this hotel, I'm saddened to know it closed down as it has one of the best beds & rooms in San Jose. Big king sized beds with high ceiling spacious rooms and big shower rooms. First time coming to CR last Feb, we find the basement parking safe and the staff exemplary. Downside is that the free breakfast... More

Showed up today (May 23) and hotel was closed. Evidently it has been closed for at least a month. The reservation site evidently was not aware of this since they sent me a reminder confirmation about a week ago. We showed up at the hotel and it was chained up. Fortunately we were able to get a room in downtown... More

I made a reservation for this hotel two weeks ago through a third party reservation site and I received confirmation. The reservation was for Friday, May 15th. The minute I received my confirmation, I started calling the hotel to book spa appointments and to coordinate airport shuttles for Saturday morning. I called several times and nobody answer. This should have... More

The beds are the best part of this hotel--that and the front desk customer service. Kudos to Leo, Jason and Johnathan for exemplary service. I had the best sleeps in these beds despite the fact that the hotel was located in an area where cars frequently squealed up the street. We were there for a week, and after a few... More

My husband and I had a difficult time finding it at first (it was dark and we had a long day of air travel). We called the hotel and the gentleman at the front desk stayed on the line until we found it. It is actually very easy to get to from the airport and main roads after you find... More

The room, as above mentioned, was nice. The bathroom (no tub, only shower) beautiful. Unlike other reviewers, we had no problems with hot water... The elevator was out of order. When we asked about it, we were told that it had been so for over a month because of some missing part... (Five stars?...) Anyway, we had to drag our... More

This hotel is a sorry excuse for the 5 star service they claim to be. I stayed at this hotel with my husband when I was 7 months pregnant. We reserved the room ahead of time, since we would be arriving later in the day to check in. During check in, we were given keys cards to our room that... More

I stayed overnight at the Beacon while conducting business in San Jose. I was given an accessable room. IT was Good. Large and nicely decorated, it was also relatively quiet. I got a great price for the room. The neighborhood is ok. It is located in a residential area of the older part of Escazu. Very tight streets and not... More
