“Nice place to stay for a week.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I stayed here for a week in September/October 2013 and it was a nice hotel. I had complimentary breakfast. Shuttle runs at non-useful hours. Short walk to one of the largest malls I've ever been to... It rained on my way back and the hotel was nice enough to call me a cab to the mall, but I didn't know how to get back from the mall to the hotel. (I only speak conversational Spanish with friends) The hotel staff were bilingual and very nice. I would stay here again.

The place is magnificent. The employers are very respectful and offers an extremely customer service that's just unbelievable. The beds, the bathroom, the breakfast....I truly miss it and hope to go there once again. If you're making a trip to Costa Rica, don't think twice about this hotel. You won't regret it!!!!!!

Room Tip: I stayed in the fourth floor and had a nice view.

Hotel is in a great location, close to restaurants and a big shopping center. Rooms are modern and clean, although ours was noisy early in the morning due to a large store nearby and a whispering air conditioner. Service is excellent, as well as breakfast, except for the coffee, which was awful! But a short walk across the plaza takes you to a great coffee shop.

The location is next to a mall and a hospital. There were many dining choices to choose. I felt very safe in the area at all times. I prefer this area over San Jose. The hotel and room was very clean and nice. Most of the staff were nice but there were two that I felt was a little snobby which made me uncomfortable. I am not sure what the role of one of them was since he was just standing around. I am sensitive to people who look you up and down and roll their eyes. Other than that he did remain professional. The restaurant staff is very efficient and attentive. The food was not too expensive and was decent. The gym was small and the pool area is open so you can't swim when it is raining. I do not believe they have a spa. The driver that they have on hand was very friendly and showed me places along the way to my final destination of where I wanted to go. There are also bus stops behind the hotel as well that can take you around. The hotel also has a free shuttle that takes you to the mall and another $38 shuttle to take you to the airport.

Very modern hotel, with all amenities needed for a business travel. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Excellent location as well. Everyone that works there is super nice and attentive.

I recently went to San José in Costa Rica for a few days. I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Escazú. The hotel is pretty modern and the lobby smells great! The rooms are very spacious and clean. The personnel is really friendly. Just a thing, a local friend told us that the rates at the Holiday Inn are really high, so if you go to Costa Rica, compare prices!
