I really enjoyed my stay here! The staff members went out of there way to ensure my stay was exceptional. I had to check and see if I was wearing a name badge because the staff appeared to know all the guest by name. The food was amazing!

The hotel is located about 30 minutes from the airport (with no traffic) and is in the heart of San Jose. There are plenty of good restaurants close by. The breakfast every morning was superb! The rooms are very spacious and clean. I would definitely book again when traveling to

Our room had a broken window. They could not switch rooms for us. I was charged and I did not stay there. It is 40 minutes from the airport. I was told it was close to the airport. I had to pay $30 to get there then 30$ to go to another hotel.

Don’t forget, Uber is illegal in Costa Rica. They are ignoring the legislation, but that doesn’t make it legal. There are occasional crackdowns on it. Still your choice though. The normal taxis are $20-25, although some will try and overcharge you (like all major cities the world over). The shuttle is $33. By the way, it’s safe.

Thanks for the heads up on Uber being illegal! I was just there and had no idea.

Hi We plan to stay in your hotel in April. Is there an option to upgrade to half board or all inclusive?
No, this hotel is not all inclusive, but has a breakfast option included. Pay attention when you book it. Do not rely too much on their shuttle. First of all - it is not free, and you just will waste lots of time waiting for it. Like in our case, it did not ever show up. The price on taxi is almost the same-between $30-40. You can negotiate a little bit down with the taxi driver. The hotel is clean and the room was very spacious. No complains. Don't be confused with their rooms numbering. starting with 10xxx, it is actually ground level from backside of the hotel.Location is good, the food its good around the town. Use advantage to eat more seafood than meat.
