We traveled to Costa Rica and although was a cloudy and rainy week this Hotel was a perfect end to stay and relax before traveling home. Close to Airport and very nice Hotel. However the didn't pay into my honors points!

We stayed at this hotel at the start and end of a tour. Located near the airport, but not so near that it is noisy, this hotel cost only a $12 cab ride to get to and we took their airport shuttle back to the airport for $8.

At check-in, they give you a tasty warm cookie. Next to the front desk is a computer area where you can access the Internet or print your boarding passes.

We stayed in a room on the ground floor near the lobby on our first stay, so didn’t realize how large the place was until our second stay when we were on the second floor and further from the lobby.

The rooms were a good size with tile floors, a large window and modern bathroom fixtures.

The complex has a decent sized pool and a hot tub. There are some shops within the hotel. The restaurant section is open-air near the pool. They have a nicely equipped modern gym next to the spa.

Just out the front door and to the right is a small shopping and restaurant area. We ate at the Italian restaurant here and liked it. There is also a grocery store in this area where you can purchase, water, drinks, snacks, etc. Take along a corkscrew and grab a bottle of wine from here to save a few dollars.

Room Tip: If you have mobility issues, ask for a room near the lobby.

After a long day of travel to get to Costa Rica this hotel is close to the airport and most important clean. It is a bit on the pricy side. We had the salmon for dinner and it was wonderful. Drinks were yummy but a little small. All of the staff were friendly and helpful with whatever we needed. I would stay again.

It's near to the airport, which makes it ideal for the first night in Costa Rica. There seems to be a golf course nearby, but we just stayed one night before going to the Pacific coast. This hotel is great going that direction, because it's on the Western side of San Jose, so you never have to drive through the city.

Staff took really good care of us! The first room had some issues and they immediately moved us to a room that met our expectations! Very convenient to the airport and San Jose. The staff arranged everything that we requested! Would stay at this property again.

Stayed here 2 separate nights, one before flying to OSA Peninsula from Tobias airport and one night before early flight back to NYC.
Both our rooms were very clean and the decor was fairly new. The breakfast was delicious and varied. Will stay here again next trip. There is a new gourmet grocery store walking distance where you can pick up snacks or prepared food for dinner.

I had a great experience here, we had a training session for some customers and it could not have gone better. The rooms, service and the food was fantastic. Please stay here you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: I had a Balcony, great for sunset and rises!
