Exceptional luxury hotel with excellent rooms. Loved staying here for 2 nights. Luxurious rooms, great beds and good bathrooms. Briliant views, mall across the road and fantastic facilities. Breakfast was very good too!

The hotel is one of the best Luxury Hotels in San Jose. The rooms are large, beds are plush, and all the furniture and bathroom amentieis are top notch. You can’t go wrong with this hotel, although it tends to be on the expensive side. However, we found that service could improve. The breakfast buffet on a Sunday had a...

It was too big for my likes. I was very bias, i have to admitted, because i came from Intercontinental in Guatemala City and i was very impressed. The Guatemala was smaller and more intimate. I was not impressed with the food at The Market restaurant. Nevertheless, Ticos are too nice, the Spa, Gym, Pool, Hair places for ladies were...

We stayed here on the front and back ends of a cruise in March and enjoyed our stays almost as much as the cruise. It's a beautiful hotel all around, with a huge and well appointed lobby, excellent in-house restaurant, and wonderfully comfortable rooms. Grounds are an amazing botanical garden. Perhaps most importantly the staff was always there to accomodate...

We were here for only one night as part of a caravan tour. The grounds were beautiful, nice pool and hot tub. Our room was clean and comfortable. We ate supper and breakfast, buffet style and the food was very good, good variety. Service was also great here. Great hotel to start off our amazing Caravan tour of Costa Rica!

Very busy hotel, constant queuing for the 2 lifts which are also used by the bellboys moving luggage to and from rooms. Not enough dining area in the evenings despite several restaurants on site. Bar area very, very noisy, insufficient seating, waitress service good. Check in/ out good. Food quality poor, wine incredibly expensive for a very mediocre wine.

I was going to give this place four stars but gave it five because TA doesn't have a 4-1/2 star option! This is a very nice property and, as you expect from Intercontinental, very luxurious. The place is aging now but that gives it charm. I only ate breakfast here and the buffet was superb, but did not have lunch...

Clean comfortable bed, well lit, good restaurant, well appointed rooms. The grounds are nice. They had their own fireworks at night for some reason. Check in was fast and friendly. The hallways and rooms could use a bit of a facelift, but overall I was pleased.
