San Jose is crazy for the North American person who is used to good directions. Here it is the land of directions via landmarks, so driving ourselves to this place was a bit challenging to say the least. It took us an hour to find it, especially since we had no means of calling them. First, you can only check... More

The condo contains all you need for your stay except a few spices and minor amenities. Office provided more pillows when asked, exchanged towels on Wednesday and provided washing machines and beach towels. Not at all luxurious, but good enough. Safe and clean. San Jose is not a great city, all the buildings have window bars and razor wire but... More

Prior to visiting TVP with my family I read many reviews. There is a scam that you MUST be aware of, going on at this property! Part of the check in process requires the guest to sign an 'open' credit card charge slip. They tell you it is for a $100 security deposit for the room and will be returned... More

TVP is not a resort, So if that is your expectation go elsewhere. TVP is a great opportunity to live in a downtown San Jose townhouse. The units are furnished much like an upper middle class person might live with in Costa Rica. My wife & I loved our week, we felt like we had a great home in which... More

Nice place to stay if youre planning to travel around the area a bit. Geographicly close to most of the country. Had a kitchen in the condominium so it was easy to get away with food prices. Could havet been a bigger variation in room sizes.

The staff was very polite and helpful. I mistakenly left some clothing there and after calling was able to pick... More

TO the travelers sharing photos of Taranova-villas Palmas, Thank you. The pictures capture a much better depiction of the property that words cannot completely convey, So with a few detailed reviews and photos, makes booking this 'resort' a more comfortable option. Previous reviews left me anxious about the booking. No photos were up (not good ones, anyway) and all the... More

This complex has just 13 units & we had the opportunity to meet & get to know everyone. It's not a 5 star by any means, but it makes up for it by being clean & more than adequate. The 5 star part is the Sol Tropical Tour Company that arranges the tours for those staying here. We took 5... More
