The hotel was very nice. We had a larger room, and everything was fine. Wifi worked well. The $40 deposit for the TV remote was strange, though. Anyone who would steal a TV remote would steal the TV, which wasn't bolted down!

Dear xzmattzx: First of all I want to thank you for choosing Hotel Vesuvio for your lodging accommodation. We are very pleased with your comment and also for sharing your good experience at Hotel Vesuvio with TripAdvisors readers. The guest satisfaction is our highest priority in Hotel Vesuvio. Regarding your comment about the TV remote control, I am pleased to clear it for you. We do not requiere a deposit or any money, what we do, is ask the customer to sign a form, in which he/she agrees to pay $40 in case he or she does not give back the tv control when checking out and, only if this happen a charge will be made. Sorry for the misunderstanding. We hope you would stay with us next time you come to Costa Rica. Hope to see you both soon! Laura Jimenez General Manager

It's a very basic old hotel that's a place to lay your head and sleep. They do have a breakfast in the morning located in an out building behind the hotel. They do not have air conditioning located in each room. But they do vent each room into the hallway that allows for one air
