Overnighted here coming and going on our trip to Costa Rica. Nice staff, nice pool, good food especially at the poolside grill. Comfortable room too. Would stay again. Convenient airport shuttle. The price was reasonable for a city hotel. The hotel was full but we couldn't tell.

Location is just a little bit outside the city. Perfect for relaxing but also convenient if you want to get around the city since they have taxis all over. The food was definitely great. Different varieties every night. The pool was also a pleasant necessity. And the people are phenomenal. Only thing is was room was a little bit dark...

We felt comfortable, good food, great breakfast buffet. We also loved the Trees, flowers and birds. Very relaxing. We needed some rest time and we got it. Everything we needed was available. We will stay there again and have recommended it to friends.

I loved everything about this hotel and I'll definitely stay here again. The breakfast buffet is delicious and has a wide selection. Room service, the front desk and housekeeping are very courteous and helpful. A tip is to use your card for the elevator and the lights. Also if you're using the Barcelo shuttle from San Jose airport, pass the...

Breakfast being included in our rate was great. Also, this was a good location for pick up for the tours we booked.
