“Loved it! ”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

We were here for one night upon departure from this wonderful country. I took a reviewers advice to stay close to the airport upon leaving and that was so true if you're leaving early in the day. This hotel has old country charm. The room was huge, quiet, super comfortable with big bathroom! The staff was lovely, the breakfast was fantastic, the pool is huge but it was a bit too cold to jump in so we hung out around. The location is great in relation to the airport, I went for a walk during the daytime but I wouldn't have during dark.

Stayed February 2014, traveled as a couple

The hotel was spotless, rooms very large and comfortable, bathroom was spacious. Breakfast was great and the staff could not have been friendlier. We left wanting to stay longer. I'd say that is pretty high recommendation! It was peaceful and a little haven within the busy outside town area. Centrally located, easy to find places to eat.

Room Tip: Room 19 is on the outside...private.

Stayed three nights. Nice clean spacious rooms with a small balcony (room for a table and chair). Friendly and helpful staff, both at the desk and in housekeeping. Separate open air sitting area if you want to relax outside of the room. Property is nicely landscaped. Small swimming pool on premises. Adjacent to the El Rodeo Steakhouse (see separate review for this very good upscale restaurant). A breakfast buffet is available. There is a game room with pool table and two internet-connected desktop computers; free wi-fi is also available. Set back far enough from a fairly busy highway so traffic noise is not worth worrying about. One drawback is the lack of any vending machines. Bottled water is available at the desk for a fee; other drinks can be purchased at the restaurant. There IS an ice machine on premises. The property has a nearby open-air party facility; on the Saturday night I arrived, there was a loud party going in full swing. Somehow I slept anyway. Parking is available for guests. (There is a nearby McDonald's about a block away and across two busy highways if you just want an inexpensive snack, light meal or cold drink -- you will likely need to sprint to get there between traffic waves. While there is a traffic light, there are no crosswalks and no walk signal at the intersection of the highways, so be careful. Otherwise, it is not close to much of anything. I walked an half hour to get to the MasXMenos (like Walmart) store for shopping.)

Our stay here was just a night stop after late arrival into San Jose airport.
The staff were very pleasant, the hotel was clean and attractive and the breakfast was good.
It fitted the bill perfectly for what we wanted.

Rodeo is a non-chain local hotel, quite close (about a 12 minute taxi ride) from the Juan Santa Maria International Airport (SJO).

The rooms are huge! And the bathroom measured 9 x 15. Beds are comfortable and there's free wi-fi. There's plenty of free parking and though it is close to the main road in Belen, it's really not noisy as the grounds are extensive.

As many trips to Costa Rica need to end close to the airport, this hotel is a delightful option. The steakhouse provides huge dinners if you need that too.

The front desk staff at the hotel is friendly, helpful and accommodating. They helped us call our rental car company to arrange a shuttle. It is nice to have warm friendly people to help you when you first get to a country. We took a cab here from the airport as it was late in the day to pick up a rental car. I liked all the landscaping and greenery. The kids had room to roam outdoors a bit after traveling all day. The pool was nice but cold. We were not comfortable walking on the road to go out to dinner. It is not far, but there's a lot of traffic and no good place to walk. We should have just eaten at the steakhouse but we were trying to watch our budget. It looks very popular with the affluent locals. The breakfast was very good and I love having a coffee pot in the room as I am an early riser and like my coffee first thing.

I stayed here with a friend for the first and last nights of our ten day horse riding adventure in Costa Rica. LOVED IT. The property is well kept, the rooms clean and comfortable, the front desk staff helpful and accommodating. While wi-fi did not work in our room, it did work in the adjoining restaurant, on the breakfast patio, and, our favorite spot, an outdoor living area with comfortable couches. We enjoyed a fresh breakfast served buffet style with coffee, juice, tropical fruits, breads, homemade jams, eggs, sausage, pancakes, and, of course, gallo pinto, the Costa Rican beans and rice dish served at almost every meal. The adjoining steak restaurant is wonderful. We had dinner here both nights we stayed, and lunch on our last day. The service was great, and the food even better. There is a wide variety of dishes to choose from. The steak is outstanding.
