Loved the hotel. GREAT room, nice buffet breakfast, exceptional customer service. My concern: location. As a white, non-Spanish speaking, middle age woman, I did not feel safe in San Juan - even in late afternoon.
Very difficult to find hotel if you are driving. Attached is one map. Suggest you call hotel and look online for specific directions as one-way streets do not "communicate" with GPS. Very easy to get turned around in this city. If you get lost, seek out help of police and offer tip.
Leave at least ONE hour prior to time needing to be at airport for check in as traffic is horrendous and it is easy to get lost getting in to and out of San Jose.
Recommend dinner at "Equina de Buenos Aires" - great Argentinian food.
