This is a REALLY great place to stay. Great environment. The front desk staff are VERY friendly. Nice rooms. Great breakfast, and a nice pool. But! You don't have to swim if you don't want to. You can lounge around on the lawn chairs--thats what 'I' did! :-D

The staff at La Sabana were warm and welcoming and spoke English very well. I felt as if I were in a very posh hotel. There is a variety of rooms and being on a bit of a budget I stayed in a standard hotel room. It was clean and bright and nicely decorated. The artwork in the halls and the stained glass in the lobby area were nice touches. The pool had some lovely mosaic work. Breakfast was buffet style so one could eat as much as one wanted.

I stayed here in the middle of my trip as I crossed the country so it was really nice that they had laundry facilities I could purchase coins for. It was a quick cab ride to downtown and there was a restaurant located a block away for dinner.

Good value for the cost.

My family and I booked the Apartotel La Sabana after reading numerous reviews on this site. We could not havebeen more pleased. For the price, it was just what it should be, if not more. The personnel was great; extremely nice and helpful. For example, my 16 month old baby got sick. We took her to the doctor, and he prescribed some medicine. However, I was not able to get to a pharmacy. The young man at the reception desk got on the phone and called around until he found a pharmacy that had an "express service" (delivery). Within an hour, I had a delivery from the pharmacy, with the medicine I needed for my baby. The rooms were fine, a little bit small for my family, but really there were very nicely decorated, and met our needs. Breakfast was yummy, The pool was nice, but very cold. We only took a little dip. We did not use the sauna, but again, it looked very nice. The Wi-fi was a little erratic, so if you have real work to do, you may get frustrated (like my husband did). All in all, I would totally recommend this hotel, even to my gringo friends.

Large comfortable, clean rooms.
Fully equipped kitchen, possibilty of laundry/drier using coins. Small pool. Enclosed parking. Very good breakfast, friendly helpful staff.
Very good value for money. Stayed there twice for one day each.
Cons: 1) no discount for missed breakfast if leaving early, but i guess free airport shuttle more than makes up for that!!! 2) internet/computer seems to be always busy. 3) some noise from adjoining park during special occasions
Highly recommended with kids!

We walked in off the street on our first day in Costa Rica and was very happy with this apartotel! Christian was great and readily available to assist. Artwork is phenomenal, room size wonderful, and very clean rooms. I would definitely stay here again, hands down.
