"El Rodeo a good fit"
The hotel was clean and the room nicely decorated, and the grounds were well maintained.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed here for the night before a flight, it was good value for money, a ten dollar taxi ride to the airportGenuine Expedia guest review
"A wonderful but too brief a stay"
The staff were exceptional. The room was large,clean with all the amenities expected of a first class hotel. Enjoyed a very tasty Costa Rican meal in the dining room. Meals are a little pricey butI did not go away still hungry, unfortunately I was unable to finish there was so much food.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Costa Rica starting point"
You will enjoy the outstanding breakfast and the general arangement of the complex. All employees are extremely friendly and very helpful. It was the right place for arriving in the middle of the night after a very long flight; excellent starting point for our tour through Costa Rica. We booked the same location for our last day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel Don't be late!"
Nice hotel, about 15 minutes from the airport. Get very good directions and be there before the restaurant closes around 10PM because it's gated and the gates are locked and not attended. I sat there at 10:30 at night whistling and someone heard me and came. Breakfast was good and included.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good hotel, bad restaurant"
Hotel is good, the restaurant is not worth going to, $ 28 for a T-bone and I think my shoe is easier to eat, dessert Tira misu was still frozen inside, should be freshly made. 01.25.2012Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, friendly staff - clean spacious rooms"
The steakhouse is a bargain compared to other restaurants in the area and it is excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to airport, comfortable"
I chose this hotel as the price was reasonable and it was close to the airport - also it included breakfast and WiFi internet. The staff were incredibly accomodating, arranged to call bus co's and taxis etc. on my behalf and allowed me a late check-out as I waited. The clerk spoke English very well and was extremely nice and helpful. The room was large, […] clean and comfortable. Breakfast was more than I expected and quite good. I'd definitely stay again!

Hotel was very good and especially clean. Staff very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location was close to the airport. It was very clean, had hot water and the staff was very friendly. The food at the restaurant was great, but expensive. It was our first night in Costa Rica and so we didn't mind. We arrived 10 min. prior to the restaurant closing and the staff kept the kitchen open for us which made us very happy. The hotel was […] a little oasis in the "city". We could hear birds signing during breakfast. They had a pool, but we didn't take advantage of it as we left early in the morning. The only thing that was a negative was that the beds were very hard for our taste. Other than that, I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Wow - Great friendly upscale hotel at great price"
Close to the airport, great service, extremely helpful and friendly. We ended up booking this hotel again at the end of our trip. A must. We had three rooms. Our teenage boys loved it, grandma loved it and so did my husband and I.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a beautiful property with flowers, gardens, pool, tennis court, playground, etc. Our 2 young children appreciated the variety of things to do. The staff was very helpful and we had no trouble communicating in English with any of them. The breakfast was suberb and could be enjoyed on the deck overlooking the pool area. The steakhouse was pretty […] good - lots of different steaks and wines to choose from in a ranch-style environment. It was handy to have it on the property so no other transportation was required. Our room was impeccable, and included a balcony overlooking a courtyard area filled with tropical plants. No complaints here! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Conveniently close to SJO airport"
We only stayed here for one night before we drove off to other areas of Costa Rica. The hotel was a little difficult to find as we were driving there ourselves. That said, everything is difficult to find in Costa Rica since they have no addresses. The room was clean and the bathroom was huge! The grounds of the hotel are lovely and gated, so parking […] is secure. The breakfast was good, and included in the room rate which is always nice. WiFi did not work in the room, and was a weak signal even in the lobby. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for a traveler on their first or last night in Costa Rica. If you are driving here yourself from the car rental pick up zone, be sure to bring very clear directions or a GPS map. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel with good price."
Staff were really nice. Perfect hotel for first and last night. Good complimentary breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
Charming grounds, hotel has character. Bathrooms are updated but the hotel is beginning to show it's age. Staff was nice. Overall- not bad and close to the airport. However you must take a taxi to the airport, no hotel shuttle.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and friendly"
This is a neat hotel with a unique hacienda feel. The rooms were spacious and clean. The restaurant was tasty and the staff were very friendly. We used it as an airport hotel and were a bit dissapointed that it was further than advertised and a $25 cab fare.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice front desk staff. Nice facilities. Arrived after dark and left before light the next day. About a $16 USD cab ride from Airport each way. Heavy security which made me feel very safe but a little like i was in a pleasant compound, isolated from the outside. Did not feel like I wanted to leave the property for safety concerns. Great steak house […] on property with excellent service and a great steak, priced about the same as a Keg in Canada or US. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great food and service"
Mostly very good. At first they couldn't find my hotels.com reservation which delayed me taking a nice hot shower after a long drive...then the hot water wasn't working in my room so they had to switch me to a different room which, as it turns out had poor wifi. Just irritating stuff. But staff was nice and servicial and steakhouse is great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very courteous staff, beautiful room"
We arrived quite late in the evening so didn't have time to use many of the facilities but the room was beautiful and very spacious. The son and daughter checked us in and both spoke English quite well. They seemed very interested in how we were enjoying our visit to Costa Rica and were very proud of their country. I really wished we had had an extra […] day to have spent there to experience more of their facility and enjoy their restaurant. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel to start your trip to Costa Rica!"
In dark need GPS to find in Belen area on road to Santa Ana- close to restaurants south of El Rancho - we were learning importance of Holy weekend & were surprised that stores were closed on Thursday of Easter weekend as well. Room was large - slept 3 adults- would appreciate a small bar fridge & microwave. El Rancho restaurant has great chicken & fish […] entrees- was closed on Holy Week Thursday too.

"Good stay at El Rodeo"
Nice rooms, adjacent to great steakhouse; very close to SJO airportGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent Hotel with a great restaurant"
if you need an overnight stay near the restaurant this is a good place to stay - but you MUST also eat at the restaurant because the food is excellent! Four of us stayed one night before heading off to the Southern Pacific zone. The hotel was a little hard to find, but once we got there we were pleased with what was presented. The rooms were large […] (all have two queen sized beds) and a large bathroom. Breakfast is served buffet style in a room near the lobby. Wi-Fi was a bonus. It was a bit of a walk to our rooms and if we had known that we would have specifically asked for one room close to the lobby (my father has mobility issues). The highlight was the WONDERFUL dinner we had in the restaurant. We ordered the the El Rodeo Meat and fish Platter for 4 which was enough for 6. Their side sauces were to die for and their empanadas and ceviche were YUMMY. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent area and great food right on the premise"
Only problem was , on the outside of the room was an electrical panel with the door flapping in the wind ... kept us awake all night... Informed the help of it and was promptly fixed , too late for us , because of one night stay, but good for next tenant..... Steak House was great , superb service.... This was excellent Hotel in a great area for flight […] next day, I'd definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"El Rodeo- its on my list for a revisit: SAFE!"
Thank you Expedia for putting us on to this hotel and thank you reviewers for making this selection a no-brainer. Listed 'SAFE' (by other reviewers) in the San Jose area gets my attention and, yes, I will agree it is a safe location. We used this hotel as our first night and last night in Costa Rica. Good Choice! It's close enough to the hotel that […] its about a $14.00 taxi trip and about 20 minutes long on a bad day. Just be aware that the restaurant closes at 10pm every night except Sundays which is 5:30 pm. The restaurant has excellent meals and prices, even at Costa Rica standards, wee reasonable.If you have a rental car there is a gas station nearby. I will certainly stay at the EL RODEO again. It's nice to have a solid staging location for entry/departure. Enjoy! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A little paradise"
We had a very memorable dining experience. The steak was grilled to perfection. Definately the best meal we had in Costa Rica. We will make it annual stop now. Front desk very knowledgable and spoke very good english.Genuine Expedia guest review
"lovely, quiet and so friendly"
what a lovely hotel, was a bit worried as it doesnt look so up to date, but i had nothing to worry about! it was so quiet and tranquil, the staff were absolutely wonderful, particularly on reception, and the restaurant next door had the best steak ive ever had. as a single traveller i was staying after a night on okeanoss aggressor liverboard so didnt […] have a lot of time to do the tourist stuff so wanted some peach and quiet with a nice meal. this was perfect for me.

"Close to Int'l airport in quiet setting"
A good, quiet spot with pleasant gardens and rooms. The staff are friendly, English-speaking and helpful. The restaurant next door is large and caters to groups, so beware. You may be forgotten once the place fills up and find yourself waiting for service or the “cuenta”Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great boutique hotel, good prices and value"
We've stayed here twice in the last few months, and love the hotel. The rooms are simple and comfortable. The last stay we had a volcano view room - the staff gave us an upgrade "just because," and the view from the 5th floor (small) balcony was superb. All of our requests (drivers, tours, etc.) were met with a smile and great suggestions. Most interesting, […] when I booked the second time, we got an e-mail ahead of arriving, welcoming us back, and received another at the end. Love the personal service and attention. The hotel gets a lot of tour groups, so the dining area and lobby is often crowded - that being said, we never waited for a table, and never heard any noise from other guests. Some traffic noise, but if you know Costa Rica, that's normal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"smelt of sewage"
Stayed here in November for an overnight stay before my flight home - the staff were pretty rude and unhelpful when I arrived. The room looked lovely and the beds were so comfy, but all I could smell throughout was sewage - nothing got rid of it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ausgewählt haben wir das Hotel vor allem wegen der Nähe zum Flughafen und den guten Beschreibungen. Wir wurden jedoch total überrascht was wir antrafen. Die Lage der Hacienda ist nicht besonders aber was sich hinter dem Tor verbirgt ist ein Juwel. Die Hoteleigentümer sind phantastisch. Sie führen das Hotel eher wie ein offenes Haus und helfen einem […] bei allem was man benötigt. Der Transfer zum Flughagen um 04:00 zum Flughafen ist überhaupt kein Problem. Das Gelände der Hacienda ist ein Juwel - riesen groß welcher mit viel Geschmack angelegt wurde. Ich kann die Hacienda auch für längere Aufenthalte empfehlen. Das Essen ist super. Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis ist aus meiner Sicht super. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
