We just overnighted before our flight out of San Jose. We had a deluxe room (#24). It was spacious, opened outside and had a large bathroom with bath and shower.
The hotel itself is really a B&B but a wonderful one with spacious comfortable common rooms. And of course the view, what a view over the lovely gardens and the city of San Jose (much better at a distance).
Warm and friendly people at check in.
We had to leave too early for breakfast so cannot comment but were shown how to leave early.
It is in Escazu which is an upscale suburb of San Jose. However, as many have noted about CR, lack of signage is a problem and if you take a wrong turn, as we did at night, finding your bearings again can take awhile.
All in all, however, we look forward to returning.
