Wish we could have stayed more here. Great hotel near the airport. Spacious rooms. Very well kept property. Breakfast was great. A bit expensive - but was worth every penny. The reception in the evening was good too.

Room Tip: Anywhere in the property.

Stayed here during Christmas and I tried skyping family in the states, but was unable to because the internet was soo poor. We found out, according to an internet speed test that it was downloading at .21 mbps, extremely slow! The hotel itself is fine, a little tired from the outside view, but the staff was a great and the restaurant was wonderful as well. I felt safe and comfortable here in beautiful Costa Rica!

The bedroom was very large, breakfast was great and the surrounding area with the gold course very pretty and great for a morning walk. There was a grocery store almost next door that was very convenient.
The gym wasn`t very good then but nothing that would damage the hotel.

We choose this hotel following a flight into San Jose from the U.S. The property is really beautiful and felt more like a deluxe resort than a basic hotel. We were upgraded to a balcony room with our Hilton Honors program, and the breakfast that was included with the room was truly superior. We felt very safe during our stay and would like to have stayed longer. The only issue we had was that the pool was cold...but we really enjoyed some time in the sun!

Close to the airport with free parking.
As a Hilton platinum member I was given an upgraded room with a balcony overlooking the pool. Everything was clean and worked. Wifi was strong.Staff was very friendly.
Manger's happy hour was held in the bar and they served an appetizer plate and wine from 5:00 - 7:00.
Breakfast was included and consisted of a buffet with North American and Costa Rican favorites. Also ate in the restaurant and the sea bass I had was very good.
Found the water in the pool and hot tub a bit cold but the pool area was expansive and well maintained.
Would stay here again.

1. I found a dead cockaroach. 2. I was given expired WIFI codes had to call the call center to fix the problem, and then I got that call charged to my room. 3. Cleaner came a different times instead of an established schedule. 4. I had to ask for my cookie at the end of my stay because I was not given a cookie when I arrived to the hotel. 5. Several times the service tried to over charge me when I pay for coffee at there local dely shop.

Staff members were very friendly and helpful. Hotel lobby, pool and restaurant areas are beautiful. There are several quiet spots throughout to enjoy a good book or work on a tablet/laptop. The breakfast buffet has a very nice selection, good mix of local fare and traditional cuisine. The omelette bar was delicious and the chef was very nice.
