This was an excellent choice for our first and last day in country. Took a 5-10 min taxi ride to hotel. Our rental car was delivered at breakfast, all arranged by Berni. On the last day we just gave him the keys and he took are of everything. This place is amazing. I cant say enough about it. The only negative is we got spoiled on the first night in counrty and no where else compares to it. Staff was helpful and gracious. Rooms were clean, roomy, functional, with many extra special touches like magazines and ear plugs. Gardens were beautiful. Some on posts complained of noise as its near the street but after staying in the rainforest for a week (thats noisy, bugs, monkeys, dogs etc.) we didnt find the noise bothersome at all. We felt very safe and sucure. The food was simply amazing. That said all the food in CR was great but thier food really stood out. The chef could easily cook for any restaraunt in NY or LA. Great value. Highly recommend as a gateway for getting in and out of the city.
