Any nice hotels near SJ airport with nice pool

I will probably have a day at the beginning of my trip or at the end of my trip where I will need to kill an afternoon/evening near the San Jose airport. I'm not looking to sightsee but only to relax by the pool. Is their any hotels that are considered more for tourists than for businessmen.

About 15 minutes...Best Western Irazu...San Jose Palacio by Barcelo..

Even the Holiday Inn Express at 4 minutes from the Airport offer a nice pool but next to the parking lot.

And now days Adventures Inn offer a nice little pool and theya re about 10 minutes from the Airport...

More distants..Xandary Plantation...Rosa Blanca...about 30 minutes each in different directions... to SJO...

I am looking to stay here and the spa & pool were a big draw for me.

There are many, depending on your budget. I like Orquideas also, there is Villa Dolce and La Rosa de America.

I also like Orquideas Inn and they have a great pool area plus a nice hot tub in the garden area. Great food, fun bar also. They have a spa, but haven't used it.

I stayed at Orquideas last year with some friends that loved the place and we were all dissapointed. My friends said it had gone down. The restuarant is good and the grounds are nice, but the rooms were aweful.

This time we stayed at Adventure Inn. Their new pool is finished. They don't have any grounds really, but I IMO their pool, and they have 2 hot tubs, areas are better then Orquideas. Plus the rooms are cleaner. They are also closer to the airport and cheaper.

Adventure Inn is more city and Orquideas is more nature.
