Good business hotel
Kevin F, Trinidad

The Intercontinental is a good business hotel. Lots of conference space. The lobby area is also quite active with live entertainment on some nights. Staff is friendly and professional. The breakfast is tremendous...lots of options and a good mixture of local and international dishes. The hotel is rather large which increases the odds that some things may invariably fall through the cracks. For example, on checking in my shower was not working and the maintenance staff had to change the fixture. It was a minor inconvenience which was fixed promptly. The hotel is also opposite a large shopping mall. The mall is expensive but has many good options for dining and a convenient supermarket. Finally, even if you don't have time to explore, nature comes to you. There are hundreds of parrots which come to roost in the palm trees of the hotel. Quite a spectacle on afternoons!

So. This was a last Minute trip away to Costa Rica. Expectations were high. Hotel had a lovely entrance hall. However the check In staff were slow to deal with you at check in, and not too friendly either. I didn’t see our lady smile once. Room was adequate, although we had to call housekeeping to clean our bathroom. Seems they forgot. Great breakfast choice, great service, great sushi restaurant with amazing sashimi. The sale cosmopolitans were to die for. The pool, hot tub were clean, however the poolside toilets didn’t have paper one day, and no hand towels the following. I booked for a specific massage and ended up getting something completely different with the therapist constantly yawning throughout the treatment. I wouldn’t let any of these minor things put you off. Great location and enjoyable hotel.

The good and not too good

Great service at Restaurant by Danny Calderon. Attentive and going extra yard to make the experience even better. Great and wide options for breakfast. Great Coffee a plus. Also Pizzas are AMAZING! Hotel confirmed my pick up at airport, but then there was nobody waiting for me at the airport. The excuse it was that they didn’t find my reservation ( which I did 2 weeks earlier) but then why send an email confirming pick up? .... Last night I arrived to my room and it was not done.. Great pool and gym. in general very clean and great location.

Huge hotel, good location!

Good all around. Buffet is normal for Latin america. Restaurants were excellent -- lobster and steak YUM and the Italian Osso Buco was fantastic Service at the bar was bar far our most enjoyable time. Most notably, Randall and Jonathan were the best!
