My wife and I stayed there for three nights during our visit in Costa Rica. It was a very pleasant stay. The location was quite noisy mostly due to the street traffic and other guests and children having fun in the pool and lounging areas. I understand that and don't hold that against them but it is something that guests should be aware of. That becomes more of a challenge because the rooms are cooled by air blowing from outside through the open windows so any outside sounds are delivered very handily inside. The location however being close to downtown was very handy. We were a very convenient walk away from Avenida Central and the walking Boulevard. We loved the great access to downtown San Jose, great restaurants, the bank, and a grocery store, and Mercado Central. The pool and spa is beautiful. The exercise room is attractive but most of the exercise equipment is very deficient and disappointing. We bought a tour through them and had a great experience. We met the owner and enjoyed his warm and friendly style. The room was clean, very comfortable and attractive. Wifi was a consistent challenge though it did work in he lobby. There is very ample and attractive covered lobby areas for groups to gather and enjoy the unusually attractive San Jose weather. The owner has done some very attractive iron fences around all the walk and lobby areas. Breakfast was good. There is 24 hour service at the desk. The afternoon receptionist and staff were very friendly and helpful.
