Nice with free shuttle to airport, comfortable beds and spacious rooms.
There were some ants in the bathroom and overall could use more in depth cleaning.
Clean room, and spacious
The gym was pretty messy, and too much equipment for the size of room it was in.
Nice facility great service and amazing staff!
the grounds were beautiful
Beautifully appointed hotel for a very reasonable rate. I'd definitely stay there again. And the staff was extremely helpful and accomodating.
Beautiful green garden; Free Shuttle Service from and to Airport***; quality and variety of food; free breakfast buffet that was included with our stay; fitness room; and location of hotel in San Jose. ***Note: The free shuttle to and from airport had one problem. When we arrived in Costa Rica, the shuttle was not there. We had to ask an attendant at the airport to call the hotel to tell them we were waiting at the airport to be picked up. Maybe it was our fault for not pre-scheduling this with the hotel...Just thought it would have been better if they had some system down to always have a shuttle available.
Front Desk Attendant who checked us in was wheelin' and dealing with their WiFi access charge. We ultimately settled on paying $35 for our 9 day stay for WiFi service for 4 devices. The water in the outdoor pool was too cold to swim at times. Wish it was a heated pool. Also, I didn't like how the valet service was inconsistently quoting us for their private taxi service. You can ask 3 different valet guys how much it would cost to drive you to a destination outside of their hotel (such as a resturaunt) and they all will give you a different price. Best thing to do is to ask the valet to call a real taxi because the price of a real taxi fare in Costa Rica was always at least half the price of what the hotel was charging us.
The facilities where in excellent condition and it's a true 4+ star hotel. The staff was wonderful and I will be back for my next business trip to Costa Rica.
The location is terrible to get into with the intersection.
