Rooms are small, but very clean. Air conditioning worked very well, thought the noise from the neighbor's air conditioning can be easily heard. The staff are incredibly kind and helpful - including the front desk and the cleaning staff. Breakfast is included, and is delicious. Shower is good. The next door Market place is great for a quick meal to...

We only stayed for about 7 hours total. They picked us up from the airport after our flight got delayed until 1:30am. Then brought us to our shuttle the next day at 9. Wonderful breakfast, clean simple rooms, and great service.

We stayed here for one night before getting a shuttle to Tamarindo the next day. It was a great place to stay for the night. When I booked the hotel online, I was really impressed with the service I received before we even got there. After booking, they sent me an email asking what size bed I would like to...

My family stayed here upon arriving in San Jose Airport. We got to the hotel in time for a late lunch and the food is absolutely delicious!!! We thought the same about breakfast the next morning.

Classy, comfortable, reasonably priced. Hourly airport shuttle, ten minutes from airport, great restaurant. The pool area is beautiful. There are many places, inside and outside, to sit and relax. Our first choice of San Hose hotels!

I stayed in this hotel one night after a late night flight into San Jose. Although my flight was delayed a couple hours, the shuttle service was awaiting our arrival and provided a short drive to the hotel. I spent very little time at the hotel, but the rooms were nice, clean and air conditioned. The complimentary breakfast was DELICIOUS....

I stayed here after 10 days in Costa Rica, using it as a landing pad before I flew back to the U.S. For the money you pay, it's a great deal. It's at least $50 cheaper than nearby hotels that offer a similar level of service, including breakfast and free airport shuttle (e.g., Marriott Courtyard). The restaurant is really good,...
