We stayed at Hotel La Amistad twice during our nine day vacation in Costa Rica - when we first arrived in San Jose for two nights, and on our final night in San Jose before we flew back to the United States. During the other six days, we traveled to both Arenal / La Fortuna to tour the Arenal volcano, and to Playa Jaco (Jaco Beach) for some relaxing fun in the sun.
If I had to pick one thing to highlight about Hotel La Amistad, it would be the exemplary customer service at the front desk. Everyone there was extremely friendly, very professional, and 100% competent - it was truly a pleasure to interact with them. And a couple were American ex-pats, and they were willing and eager to share their collective information about San Jose and Costa Rica in general.
In addition, the concierge, hotel staff, and restaurant staff were outstanding, and provided excellent service to we travelers.
If and when we return to San Jose, the Hotel La Amistad will definitely be our destination of choice.
Should anyone wish to contact me about the hotel, San Jose activities, or Costa Rica in general, please feel free to do so.
