El Rodeo Estancia Boutique Hotel & Steakhouse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 22, 2012

This hotel feels like another of the hotels you just stay in whilst waiting to catch a flight – which is exactly what we were doing. The rooms are big and well decorated. The hotel felt very empty and a bit eerie but it meant we had the pool table and free Wi-Fi computers all to ourselves! The lady on reception was so friendly and even helped us order a pizza from the local takeaway! I wouldn’t recommend this place for a holiday but it’s perfectly fine for a short stop over.

Located just 10 mins by taxi (cost US$ 10-15) from the airport in a peaceful semi-rural area, the hotel is set in an attractive courtyard with a swimming pool, tennis court and restaurant. The public areas are pleasant and the bedrooms well appointed with quality furnishings and king-size beds in line with its its 4 star status. In spite of these trappngs it is not "stuffy" and has an informal atmosphere, helped by the friendly and helpful staff. Service was excellent throughout - the hotel computer was down when we arrived but without any prompting from me reception called to let me know when it had been fixed. On top of all this the Argentinian steak house was excellent and served up the best steak I'd eaten for years! Overall a great place to stay before the early morning flight back home and a bargain at US$ 88 + tax per night B&B.

Room Tip: I bet they're all great!

This is the third time I have stayed at El Rodeo and it has been consistantly excellent. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very good and the service also very good. By North American standards the price is about average, but if this hotel was in the states it would be double or triple the price. It feels like you have stumbled upon a secure, eclusive hideaway for the super rich, at a bargain basement price. I would reccomend this without hesitation.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked very good, perhaps the upper floor would be quieter.

Really liked this place. We chose it for the last night because it was close to the airport. Rooms had hardwood floors and were big with a huge bathroom. Dispensers for soap, shampoo, and conditioner in the shower. A window on each side of the room for cross-ventilation (this area of Costa Rica isn't hot) There was a nice pool and our breakfast was included so the prices were very reasonable.Currently there is a road repair problem that makes the trip to the airport 5 klm instead of 2.5 klm but that's no big deal. The restaurant was very nice and the food was great. It was little difficult to find. FYI - If you are driving in Costa Rica, I remommend a nav system. Start by marking the location you pick up your car. We used National and we drove all over trying to find them to return the car - the car rental places aren't right at the airport or all on one road.

This is a delightful hotel near the San Jose Airport. It is quiet, secure, and well maintained. The rooms are large and comfortable. The service is friendly and attentive. My wife and I loved it!

Room Tip: I doubt that there is a poor room! The beds are very comfortable!

We spent our final night of our trip to Costa Rica at this hotel. It was a wonderful way to end a nice vacation. The rooms are spacious and the restaurant is right next to the hotel. The breakfast which was included in the room rate had varied selections and was served on the hotel's veranda.
