particularly if you are coming to CR to serve in Pavas area, this is by far the best option for lodging. there is no hotel as close to Pavas as this. easy walking to restaurants (even a McD's if you want it, but i'd advise comidas typicos instead!) nice renovations to rooms, great b-fast buffet, and spacious atrium for lounging...

We stayed at Isla Verde for 7 nights. We had a beautiful new room. The restaurant had wonderful food. It met all our expectations. I appreciated the closeness to restaurants and the grocery store. We will stay here again.

Nice rooms. Safe with security. Food in restaurant not very good. Surrounding restaurants look like they may be good. I would stay here again. Air conditioning was nice after a week of "roughing it." Good experience here.

The rooms are currently under renovation. The result is a very modern, tastefully decorated accomodation. Breakfast includes several hot dishes, cold cerials, good coffee, and fresh fruits juices and bread - and nearly every item was quality and tasty. The front desk staff was extremely helpful; one lady went way beyond to help me set up local phone service on...

5 minutes walk to the USA embassy where we had our visa appointment, so very convenient for that. 15 minutes taxi ride into the old part of town. It's on a main busy road, so not necessarily the place to stay if you're not visiting the USA embassy. However, I have given 5 stars because the desk staff (Natalia!!) were...

This hotel is beautiful, clean, safe, close to the airport and cultural areas of San Jose (soccer stadium, farmer's markets, ballet theater, many parks...) The breakfast buffet is AMAZING! Fresh tropical fruits, bread & baked goods, yogurt & cereals, and at least four hot items per day (always gallo pinto (rice & beans), eggs, meat, whole seasoned baby potatoes). The...

Normally I stay in a historic hotel in the city center, but I've had problems with their WiFi and their prices are a bit high for...

The hotel was easy to get to, had a new modern design and good breakfast. The service was excellent and It was also very reasonably priced. The hotel has a secure underground parking garage. I would definately stay there again.

A clean tidy spot close to the airport. My only complaint was when we had to get up early in the morning to catch our flight all of the lights were out in the stairwell. The desk attendant didn't seem concerned at all that we had to carry our luggage down 3 flights of stairs in almost total darkness.
