“Best Hotel East of San Jose, CR”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

A business associate of my wife (who travels here for business and I get to tag along) recommended this new hotel. We've only been here a couple nights so far but are thoroughly impressed! If you're new to CR and are looking to stay in the central area, look no further. If you've been here more than once (we've been coming since 2003), the following should be considered. Just opened in Nov. 2012, it is a gorgeous property conveniently located in Curridabat next to the highway. Not that you would notice as the sound proofing is exceptional (those who've stayed at older establishments will know why this is important). The staff, without exception has been friendly and helpful. The options for dining, both here and within the Momentos Plaza area are great! Yes, there is a Walmart across the street (which you won't see from your room) but it's nice to have the option of purchasing various goods for a reasonable price without having to go into downtown San Jose. For those more experienced, you can catch a bus there just to the north of the property and the return (look for Calle Vereja) is by Walmart for ~350 colones.

The amenities are outstanding (see website for details) and are reflected in the images I will upload. Some of the highlights are: comfortable bed, real pillows, great Internet, Cafe Britt coffee in the room, plenty of three-prong outlets, large bathroom, large window with a good view (towards the highway for us). I will update this and forthcoming visits.

I often visit Costa Rica for business and this was the first time I stayed at the other side of town (usually I am in Heredia). The hotel got indicated to me by a Costa Rican business relation and I can now recommend it anyone on business & leisure trip.

Even though the hotel is at quite a distance of the airport (you can calculate an easy 30 minutes for the trip by taxi) it is very convenient if you are travelling in the direction of Carthago / Turrialba.

As mentioned by the other reviewers the hotel is brand new and is well equipped. The rooms are comfortable with a good bed and a nice sofa and the wireless internet (free of charge) is fast and without problems.

Staff is very friendly and for the ones not speaking Spanish also speaks fluently English.

Breakfast is good (also included in the rate) and for the ones who want to do some exercise their is also a gym on the first floor available.

There is no room service option in the Hyatt but as the hotel is conveniently located in a sort of mini mall there is a ton of restaurants really closeby. You can choose from Italian, Sushi, Peruvian, Mexican or seafood. I stayed for a week and tried almost all of them and the quality of the food is excellent.

I'll definately be back next year!

I'm here right now. Checked in this evening and found the staff to be utterly congenial and helpful--completely first rate (and I'm a Hilton Gold Card holder!). The hotel is only two weeks old, and everything works perfectly. A/C is cold! The room is spacious, reasonably priced, and very well equipped. Internet is free and flawless. One of the nicest hotels and staff that I've experienced in memory. The surrounding plaza has a wide variety of shops and an astonishing array of restaurants with foreign cuisines--Italian, Japanese, Argentine, etc.etc.--and even a Denny's and a MacDonalds. Too bad about the Walmart nearby (like the other reviewer, I hate them), but c'est la vie. In the hotel restaurant (reasonable, as such things go), the Caprese salad is one of the best I've had, including in Italy, where I travel often. Kudos to the chef. I'd recommend this hotel without reservation. Wait staff couldn't have been nicer.

Room Tip: Fifth floor worked fine for me.

New hotel, with very friendly staff. The hotel is in a plaza with several restaurants and shops that are all in walking distance. Wi fi worked great,rooms spacious and comfortable. The only negative was that a Walmart was across the street, but it's getting difficult to escape from those these days.
