The Apartotel La Sabana was my first accommodation in Costa Rica. It offered the perfect introduction to a beautiful country! A comfortable room, delicious breakfast, and above all, a staff whose warmth and friendly nature exuded a sense of welcome served as the perfect opener to what proved an excellent visit to a place I've long wanted to see. Will...

The staff is very helpful. The location is just perfect. A small pool is perfect for the hotel. Don't miss breakfast. The suites have everything you need, a kitchenette with the basic utensils, dinner, sofa and the separate bedroom. Just perfect.

I was in Costa Rica for dental care & the location was perfect. Just a 15 minute walk through beautiful La Sabana Park to get to the clinic. I liked everything about this hotel. The pool & the gardens are lovely, the breakfast buffet was excellent, the room was clean & very nicely furnished & had everything for the kitchen,...

Nice pool, fantastic breakfast and the staff were wonderful. We only stayed 2 nights, our first and last of our vacation. If time permits, take a walk in the huge park just up the road. Grocery store and a few restaurants within walking distance

Thank you for your review! So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and were able to visit beautiful Sabana park. It is definitely one of my favorite spots in the city.

Cute, friendly and convenient. Not especially close to the centre of town, but that's not big deal. Close the Sabana Park which is. Very good shuttle service to the airport. The comment about 'no escorts' in the webpage I thought amusing if a little prissy.

Very charming with beautiful gardens, wished we had some daytime hours there to enjoy the nice pool. We only stayed overnight to catch an early flight. The staff was very helpful, however, I was disappointed that although I had reserved a queen bedroom months earlier, they only had a twin room and insisted that's what I had reserved.
