5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I’ve always stayed at this hotel overnight when visiting Costa Rica. The staff is friendly and the hotel is clean. The breakfast is also good. My only disappointment is that I’ve always stayed on the 6th floor and was looking forward to enjoying the view of San José. I was given a room on the first floor with views of a rooftop. Away from that my stay was pleasant and will continue to stay at this hotel.
