On the description page it said that there was a free airport shuttle. That is not true at all. The cab ride to and from the airport was $30usd each way. The beds were rock hard. I’m ok with a firm bed, but this thing was straight out of the Flintstones. I only booked Radisson, because this was my husband’s first trip to Costa Rica and he felt more comfortable with a hotelier he was familiar with. I should have gone with my choice and insisted we stay at Adventure inn.

We arrived super tired from a transcontinental flight and frankly could have slept on the floor, but the first room was not good. Damp smell, window cracked, broken lamp on bedside table... They gave us one of the renovated rooms the day after (at no extra cost) and we felt less cheated with our dignity restored. Fantastic staff, always happy and smiley but the hotel is a bit of a concrete bunker from the 80s. Good location. You can walk into town. Let me put it clearly so that nobody misunderstands : Please don't put people in the old, smelly, smashed to pieces rooms if you have new ones available. It is bad for the reputation of your hotel. There, that should do it.

I must have been unlucky as I had a very poor experience in this hotel. No shuttle to come to get me at the airport even though I received a confirmation. No one came to help me with the luggage upon arrival and up to the room. Once installed I couldn't go to bed as the mattress and the sheets were soaked wet and I had to pack up my stuff again to go to another room at 2 am !They gave a big room but run down, smelled moisture and old carpet, close to a main avenue and quite noisy...But I must say the staff was nice and apologized. However I opted to change the hotel for the following nights.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are saddened to hear that the condition of the room and the confusion with the taxi service from the airport was less satisfying during your stay. Providing our guests with comfortable and enjoyable experience is of extreme importance to us and for that reason we are incredibly sorry that we may have missed the mark. Your observations will be directed to the department head for the appropriate corrective measures that needs to be taken. We are hoping that you will give us another opportunity to make your stay feel like home.

I had a very nice experience at Radisson. As a Radisson member I got a great room/junior suite with a very comfortable king size bed. The breakfast is very rich. Alonso, Alvaro, Jhon and Christian will do everything possible to make you happy. The restaurant and room service were very good too. You can do your PCR Test (Echandi Lab) from the hotel and you get the result the next day, taxi service is available too and the front desk will help you with anything you need. For the location, it is not straight away in the city center.It is a 10 minute ride to Plaza Cultura for example (You will find plenty of taxis there).For me i was not really an issue.

Alonso...Where do I start? From the moment I walked in to breakfast with my mom , you were so full of energy excited to meet us and take care of us. My mom has gastritis and her stomach is very sensitive to almost all the foods on the menu. No worries though! Alonso customized a meal for her that she enjoyed & loved so much. I had dental surgery and couldn’t eat any foods but he made me soft eggs and pancakes! Thank you Alonso!!! I hope when I come back in September , I still see you here . God bless you!
