We stayed two nights and checked in as a family with a double and a twin They were full and so gave us rooms on different floors when I said I didn’t want the children on a different floor the impression I got was I was being unreasonable. Eventually they found two rooms on the same floor and we headed up only to open the door of the first room and find someone else in it. Back to reception.....not so much as an apology......literally nothing. Two more rooms allocated. Back in the lift this time the cards didn’t work so back to reception.....again no apology just new cards provided...finally we got to bed. Same routine at breakfast the next day when they had no record of us and questioned whether we were entitled to breakfast Hotel itself is ok if a little tired. Good facilities and great Wi-fi. Concierge team were great and not to be faulted ...,thank you for your help At the end of the day mistakes happen and hotels get full HOWEVER it’s all in the delivery if you are surly and unapologetic it doesn’t leave customers feeling very special or likely to come back.

Good launchpad for Costa Rica

This hotel is near the center of downtown. We could walk to most things and there were an amazing number of services nearby. Hotel offers fine dining, moderate dinning and a cafeteria. Provide breakfast was quite good, including an omelet bar. I grew to love beans and rice for breakfast. Hotel staff was very helpful and provided thoughtful advice. It is more like a standard American hotel. Great view on the top floor, from the fine restaurant and from the evening happy hour location.

Good hotel

We’ve stayed here for one night. The room was clean, so was the bathroom. Nothing special, but well enough if you’re planning on staying a couple of nights. The breakfast was good and the waiting staff very friendly.

Great hotel

Amazing wifi speed.I happened to bring an ethernet cable for my laptop cuz I read online here that the rooms had ethernet ports. 80MB down and 60MB up on a wired connection. The rooms are clean and spacious. The restaurant on the 17th floor has a beautiful view and great food. Our waiter (Dimas) was extraordinary. 10/10 for this hotel.

This was the last stop of my trip and this hotel is average to below average in comparison. The room smelt weird, small beds & room, pool had no towels, no free breakfast as all my oher hotels had, no transportation to the airport as my other San Jose hotels had and one of the elevators broke making going down an extremely long process. It has a decent location but the actual hotel isn’t all that. Even the people weren’t very nice, which says a lot because every person I met in Costa Rica was nice. Let’s just say I won’t be back, there were plenty of other beautiful and more accommodating hotels.
