Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Always a good experience staying at the Radisson San Jose Costa Rica. The staff are always friendly and helpful. The hotel is always clean and the atmosphere is always calm. The breakfast buffet is always yummy and we can even order a la carte. The rooms are spacious and very clean. It is always nice to feel like we're in our second home when we stay here because the people make us feel like we are home.

All of it. The bed was very comfortable. The shower had great water pressure with plenty of hot water. The hotel staff was extremely friendly. The breakfast included was a menu, sit down and be served style. My waiter even remembered what I ordered from the day before. This was a great place to stay

This is a very good hotel with excellent service and amenities. It has two pools, a hot tub, an exercise room and an execellent restaurant on site. The rooms are large, the beds are comfortable, a mini bar and coffee maker are in each room. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to downtown. A safe walk during the day, but to be prudent, take a taxi after nightfall. Breakfast is good, and the restaurant is excellent, with full value for money. We would certainly stay here again. Well done Radisson.

The hotel is not in the best area, but is clean and safe. Walking distance from downtown, museums, etc., although I would recommend taking a cab to/from the hotel at night. Be cautious of the "guest policy"... the hotel charges $50 for anyone to come to the room. The room, pool, and amenities were all very good. The fitness center is tiny and only has a few machines and very few weights.

When staying at a hotel there are some basic amenities that are expected. Upon check-in we were told nothing about the property, amenities or breakfast. We were told about the membership card though. We trekked multiple floors down dark hallways through this labyrinth to the very last room at the end of the hallway. Right as we entered lizards scuttled away and I was instantly turned off and didn’t want to stay in the room. The carpet was dirty and the room looked like a WW2 era bunker with concrete walls, old giant dirty curtains and aged furniture. The room was odd because it was probably two rooms at one point and they joined them together to make one massive room. Two doors to enter and both work but we only got a key to one door. Both doors had two different numbers. Would another guest get a key to our room?!? Creepy. We sucked it up and stayed but went straight to sleep. We were coming off a long international flight and would only be in San Jose for one night so we figured we would just tough it out. In the morning we went to the “coffee station” to get coffee and there was nothing there. It was probably built long ago and forgotten in a dark corner of the hotel. We took an Uber to go get breakfast and found out later on our bill that we were charged for it even though we didn’t have it. At check-out I let them know about the lizards and was told we were staying in a tropical country. No, we were staying in a dirty hotel. I have stayed in tropical countries and have never seen that. Ultimately this is a hotel in an unsafe area of town and is old/in dire need of an update.

Good overall stay but some of the general amenities we anticipated to use were not the greatest. We stayed in the middle them renovating rooms so it was noisy at times. The hot tub also didn't really get hot. We notified the front desk and it still didn't get very warm. We also needed to call room service every time we needed ice and the breakfast area was closed. Rooms were clean, front desk staff was friendly, and the restaurant food was good though! Also right in the middle of San Jose, so it was close to many restaurants, museums, parks, and other attractions. We needed a Covid test done before our flight and the staff set it all up for us. They had someone come up to our room to perform it which was very convenient.

We stayed for 8 nights was a family with one of us on business. First to good bits. Check in was good, things were explained including our mini bar with space for our complimentary water etc. Our room was a good size, 2 queen beds and lots of space. Breakfast each day was very good and one of the servers, Alonzo, particularly special. But... Housekeeping dreadful. Some days towels removed and not replaced. Others no toilet paper. Another no tissue. Soap etc rarely replaced. One day cleaners sponge left in sink. After 4 days all guest got a note to say mini bars and fridge were being removed as hotel policy had changed. Empty space left in room and nowhere to keep things cool. Bar had disappointing selection of beers and wine. No local craft. Hot tub operational less than half the time we were here. Clearly the hotel, which could be good has management problems.

Radisson Blue Hotel in San Jose was a very nice stay during our holidays to Costa Rica. The staff at the reception was very friendly and always wiling to assist and help, same as the rest of the people working at the hotel. The rooms were very clean and the internet service was also very good.
Breakfast was a spot on, starting early in the morning and providing many different options everyday to keep you full and energised for the rest of the day.
The swimming pool is unfortunately at a strange location with not so much sunshine so it was too cold to enter but we enjoyed some very relaxing afternoons by the pool !
Overall, we had a very nice stay and we would totally recommend the hotel to other !

This is not a five star hotel by any means and when you walk in you see a lot of concrete and it feels dark but against the heat it is a nice welcome. For a hotel in the centre of the city (only 10 minute walk) it was peaceful and the pools were lovely. The rooms were massive twin room was two double beds. The bar at the hotel served delicious and reasonably priced food, breakfast was vast. Staff were very helpful and friendly, All in all a great get away

We arrived super tired from a transcontinental flight and frankly could have slept on the floor, but the first room was not good. Damp smell, window cracked, broken lamp on bedside table... They gave us one of the renovated rooms the day after (at no extra cost) and we felt less cheated with our dignity restored. Fantastic staff, always happy and smiley but the hotel is a bit of a concrete bunker from the 80s. Good location. You can walk into town. Let me put it clearly so that nobody misunderstands : Please don't put people in the old, smelly, smashed to pieces rooms if you have new ones available. It is bad for the reputation of your hotel. There, that should do it.

Is there a drinks service by the pool?
Answer from HectorSweden
1 contribution
Hi, yes, saw some who had drinks, beer, etc. but it is you who must go and buy / pick these up inside the facility. There was no bar right by the pool. The pool to be added is not temperate, so there is cold water in. In addition further up by the pool, different birds bathe etc. the same water then goes down to the main pool, not 100% fresh. But I still have to point out that the quality of the food was very good. as well as staff service also without anything negative to add. Hope it helps. Have a good trip otherwise.
