“Interesting place”
Reviewed March 5, 2010

The staff are the greatest thing about this place. The rooms need upgrading, especially the pillows. You will hear others in their rooms as there seems to be some type of venting system shared by the rooms.

Liked the pool but the whirlpool was always way too hot to totally enjoy. Amazing free breakfast and great food available all day and evening.

The location is far from everything so if you intend to just lounge by the pool during your whole stay this place is for you. This place is not exclusively gay so be prepared for girls and str8 couples to be around.

I can't say enough good things about Colours. The staff was so friendly and helpful, the atmosphere so relaxed and welcoming to all. This is NOT like a standardized chain resort like the Marriott, with tons of activities and amenities. This a tranquil, friendly place to relax between adventures; by the pool, on the roof-top deck, reading a book and sipping on wine in a quiet corner, or making new friends in the bar area. My room was large and comfy with constant tropical breezes. The meals (breakfast and dinner) were a great value and tasty. The staff always welcomed me by name and with a smile, and helped me with advice, recomendations, reservations and taxis. As a solo traveller in Costa Rica for the first time, this was invaluable. I can't wait to go back!

I've stayed at Colours several times this year, as well as in years past, and will continue to stay there in the future whenever I'm in San Jose.

I'm don't stay there because it's a "gay" hotel. In fact, the guests are a very diverse mix of gay, straight, male, and female, of many ethnic backgrounds from countries all over the world. I stay there because of this diversity, and also because of the warmth of the staff, the value, the beautiful grounds and pool, and the close proximity to downtown - while still being in a safe, walkable neighborhood (both the American Embassy and the Costa Rican president's home are within walking distance - good testaments to the neighborhood).

A delicious breakfast is included with your room cost. The rooms all have telephones as well as cable television with many English language channel options. There's a well-stocked bar, free internet access, available massage therapy, workout area, sun deck, and a variety of excellent restaurants nearby that deliver or are within easy walking distance.

Colours is a comfortable, affordable, relaxing, and very welcoming spot for all open minded travellers. You should go there.

I was a bit apprehensive about staying in a gay hotel, but the price and location was perfect for my needs. From the outset I was totally impressed. Exceptionally clean, surprising amenities and very cordial and helpful staff. The other guests were friendly and seemed to "sense" that I was not "available." I will absolutely stay there again and highly recommend it to straights and gays alike.

All the services we were provided with surpassed our expectations to a detail.
We will definitely come back with friends and stay at Colours. The staff took care of us as if we were their own family members. They are very resourceful and they make you feel you are in an utopian place. Remarkable!
