We stayed at the Radisson for 3 nights. Quite a different service as compared to India. Services were customized to suit the Costa Rican culture. The coffee makers were different, breakfast was a buffet with local and international spreads, cheese etc. Very courteous and helpful staff. Its quite close to down town and we used to walk to most of the places like the Post Office, National Theatre, Jade Museum etc The travel desk gave us quite a few options to see and explore the provinces and since we did most of the travel by road, got reliable and well informed drivers and guides. The restaurants are nice and the fare is quite tasty.

The charge you for your full stay when you checking and $100 dollars extra expenses for the restaurant/ bar. Travel quite often and never been charge for full amount or posible restaurant charges. The girls at the front also try to convince me that the charge was just a security deposit. Never coming back!

The hotel was fine for a one night stay before moving on but it is very old and tired looking. Worst for us was the overpowering damp musty smell of our two rooms. I have seen now from other reviews that there are newer rooms, wish we had had those, that would have made a big difference. After a long, delayed flight we were too tired to complain. But the staff were very nice and the breakfast excellent.

This is a nice hotel with a solicitous staff. I stayed there at the beginning and end of my visit to Costa Rica. It is a very large hotel and my first room was muy lejos de recepción. It took quite some time to get to the room. The lobby area is comfortable, albeit a bit chilly. There’s a small bar playing throwback music. The restaurant is gorgeous, but the food was a bit bland. Complimentary breakfast was much more enjoyable. The area surrounding the hotel is sketchy at best. There might be better options if you want to walk around. That is something you cannot do around this hotel.

Honestly the breakfast is great, the beds are comfy, the air con works, there's lots of plug sockets for charging things, oh and there's a jacuzzi. Not sure what more you need. Best nights sleep I had in my entire stay

The staff was very gracious and the food was good. The only difficulty we had was ordering room service with people that could not translate into English. Also it would have been nice if the broken ice machine would have been fixed during the week!

Poole, United Kingdom48 contributions7 helpful votes
As others say, a huge hotel and very echoey corridors with noisy people coming and going at all hours. Perhaps some signage to remind people to be considerate? I stayed here at the beginning and end of a tour and honestly I preferred the non refurbished room, with more wood, warmer lighting and nothing wrong with it. The reburbishment in 1007 was poorly done (already cracked tiles and gaps between baseboards and walls, updates include cold clinical lighting and hard surfaces that carry sound and give horrible acoustics. I really liked the pool and hot tub. Staff generally good though tea and coffee is slow at breakfast. Breakfast buffet is good. In the restaurant I had a good meal (pitas), an OK one (risotto) and a really poor one (ravioli).

Only stayed there for one night, overall clean room and good breakfast. We arrived late due to plane delay, initially navigation sent us to the wrong place and finally found this one. Good parking, and good selection of breakfast, friendly staff, pool area looked nice but we only stayed a short night so hard to comment there

We stayed for one night at the end of a 4 week stay in Costa Rica. The room was very comfortable and quiet even though it was close to the centre of San Jose. Breakfast was also good with temperature controls on the buffet to ensure the food was hot. The most impressive thing was the staff, particularly McCarthy. My partner was taken ill after a long car journey that day and McCarthy went above and beyond in helping me support him. He called the medics and helped to translate, then provided a wheelchair. The following day reception staff helped with the transfer to the airport and ensured that the driver helped me at the airport. I was very impressed with the help that I received
