We loved our stay here! The hotel was modern and clean, with up-to-date amenities and excellent safety. Our flight was a late arrival, yet the staff was prepared, friendly, and helpful. Their is good parking, and the grounds are lovely and well-tended! There is a hotel restaurant and it is connected to Denny's. There is an ample gift shop and a bar. The hotel restaurant has some tables outside in the garden, a real treat! We will stay here again!

Affordable Hotel for the Thrifty traveller
Good hotel for my short stay in the awesome city of san jose costa rica. Its farther down from the city center but its close enough for a short drive. The hotel does need to update its amenities though , when i was the the elevator was down for the most part but that was not a big issue. The room was spacious and comfortable, the tv was a bit smallish but serviceable. Bed was large enough for myself and my SO, so it was a comfort. The hotel staff was accomodating and friendly, small amenities like a coin laundry for the thrifty traveller helps out a lot. The pool was always looking like the deep blue sea, so it was perfect when it wasnt raining but even if it was the rain was enjoyable enough. There was a dennys and a casino inside and close to a market if i need some other type of food to eat, so that was good 👍. This stay was a pleasant for me, so a good hotel for a single traveller or for a couple to stay in.
