2/10 Poor

Beware - they lie about airport shuttle pickup
This was a horrid place to stay, despite the fact that the hotel itself was nice. I waited more than an hour for an airport pickup that I had been told multiple times by a woman at the front desk would be there within 15 minutes. I eventually had to take an expensive taxi anyway. Their shuttle driver called me about 2 hours after my original schedule pickup time to see if I was still at the airport and needed a pick up. What bothered me was that the woman at the front desk who repeatedly told me the shuttle would be there in 15 min was lying - If I had known that was going to be such a long wait, I would have taken a cab right away rather than wait for an hour looking for a shuttle that was never coming. In the end, I should have stayed at the nicer hotel, the extra transport costs made the price the same.

A very nice stay. Appreciated the extra shuttle ride to the airport for Covid testing. Great location, especially if you're going to rent a car while you're In Costa Rica - it's right across the street.

Check in was very very slow. Polite but disorganized . Lots of people behind the desk but only one person serving a customer and she was too chatty with people waiting

Reused bottles of gel??
I was not happy about getting a bottle of shower gel that was used/top was broken. It really made me feel like it might not be sanitary. The people/workers were fabulous!

Good close to airport hotel
Close to airport hotel. Comfy room, great breakfast with friendly staff and nice pool. We enjoyed the breakfast which had a great fruit selection, help yourself hot and cold food and very friendly, helpful staff. We used the hotel shuttle bus services to the airport which worked well. A good hotel option if you need to be close to the airport.
