The first time we stayed here in July we had a studio suite as we had 4 people + baby. The suite was huge, very well equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms. We all loved it. The last time there was just the two of us + baby so we had a smaller suite. It was just as comfortable. The only negative... More

Pros: The hotel is in a good location (Escazu) with close access to the biggest shopping center (Multiplaza), restaurants, and cafes. Is only a 15 minute drive to San Jose. Most of the Staff is friendly and attentive. Cons: The apartments are average, with a dated decor, and poor maintenance overall. Some examples: our front door had a broken security... More

This is the second time this year we have stated here. Service is excellent. There is some street noise, but that is common in Escazu. We took two teen grand children to Costa RIca and spent 2 nights here. Free breakfast and airport pick up is a plus. There are 2 pools for entertainment. You can take a taxi cheap... More

I spent a week at this property in June of 2014. It's worthy of a five star review, but I have a couple of small suggestions for the owners. The property is in a great location in Escazu. If you're an American visiting San Jose for the first time, I'd recommend this area if you want to feel as close... More

Great Breakfast Huge Apartments for a single guy like me. Nice secure environment. Really helpful staff although language gets in the way sometimes :). Away from hustle of the main san hose downtown, so you do need a travel mode to go to malls and business districts. I will give it 4.5 stars

We have stayed here 5 or 6 times. It is always clean and the staff is hard working. It is nice to have breakfast each morning. The swimming pool and hot tub are great. The airport shuttle takes a lot of stress off coming and going back to the states.

We've spent several weeks at this wonderfull hotel. The staff is very nice and friendly. Breakfast is more than sufficient and fresh. The place even includes a tiny supermarket for basic necessities. Rooms are impeccable and very quiet. A true value for money.
