“Excellent Hotel and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

We stayed here just last week and are going back before leaving Costa Rica. The price for a kingsize bed and junior suite was lower than the Holiday Inn next door. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They could not do enough for us and were so hospitable as opposed to the snooty clerk at the Holiday Inn. He was so snooty and quoted a ridiculous high price we walked out in the rain to go to the Hampton Inn. Clean, comfortable and fabulous. Breakfast was included and was delicious.

Convenient, American style hotel, very close to the airport. Great for a first or last night. Very helpful multi-lingual staff. Excellent value for money.

Restaurants close by are not that interesting but it's an easy taxi ride into San Jose.

I found great refuge here after a difficult and long day of driving from the Osa Penninsula on the south pacific coast. Kevin and Noelia were very welcoming and professional at check-in, and upgraded my room after all three of us were subjected to a couple of extremely obnoxious arrivals.
I also made good use of the hotel's free unlimited calling home to the US, and caught up on a week of news and emails in their convenient business center. The free morning hot breakfast was excellent, and prepared me for the long day of flying home to San Diego from the airport literally across the street..

We stayed here our last night before heading back home. :/
It was very close to the airport. Clean, great breakfast. And it's great you can pay the departure tax at the hotel, the line was super long at the airport. We would stay again for sure.

Excellent service, friendly staff, clean and safe & good value for money. Large sized bedrooms, comfortable and clean bed of larger than normal King size, complimentary breakfast, including a To Go packed one. Very close to the airport, less than USD10 by taxi Good offers for local tours available within the hotel and recommended to pay Departure Tax at hotel in advance of departure as there can be queues at the airport to pay this. It costs a premium of USD 4 to pay at the convenince of the hotel, but it is well worth it. Please don't lose the receipt of the tax paid as it is very much required at the airline check in counter.
