  • 8.0.Very good

    Quiet. It feels a being away from the city while only a 15 min drive from downtown San Jose. Liked having a balcony facing the pool and green area inside the hotel. It has a nice two restaurants, small shop and laundry machines and dryer. A pharmacy and supermarket are a few minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel being on a highway, the area the are not pedestrian areas in close proximity of the hotel. Service is good.

    Overall a very good stay. We enjoyed the breakfast and airport shuttle. The bathroom shower did not drain well in the room though, and the water was either very hot or very cold.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I have stayed here a few times. I like the location, central to many things, a market next door, restaurant and bar on premises as well as gift shop and Alamo car rental. This is my base when coming to or leaving from Costa Rica. They provide a shuttle to and from hotel for about $8 so we spend our first night and last night here.

    Very nice. Under some construction, lost power and water pressure a few times. But overall, very nice. Charge to take you to the airport. Uber is cheaper.
