“Good service and convenient location”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

The room is spacious with Sleep Number beds. We stayed once on our way into town and once on our way out. On both occasions, we received rooms with 2 queen beds. Both times, one Sleep Number bed was broken. Wireless internet is provided in the rooms. The wireless service various depending on your room's proximity to the front desk. The bathroom is spacious. There are some shops and restaurants close to the hotel. Breakfast was provided when we stayed.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the front of the hotel to avoid road noise.

Check-in took some time as a large group had just arrived. Hotel only has a few floors but is very long. Walk from the reception to the room in long winding corridors took some time. Room very spacious and well equipped. Nevertheless, minibar was empty for some reason. Rooms have great décor though a slightly “moldy” smell hung in the air when entering the room. One of the most comfortable beds that I have slept in. The bed had a control for changing the position and firmness of the mattress. Breakfast area was fairly simple and breakfast assortment basic.

Dear, Helsinkiglobus,

I am really pleased with your comment. Thanks so much for staying with us and thank you also for mentioning our beds. We are proud to say that we are the only hotel in Central America to have this amenity to offer to the guests. The beds are designed exclusively to the Radissons´ hotels and they are called Sleep Number Beds. Hope you have the chance to sleep in them many more times.

Best regards,

My wife and I spent three nights at this hotel and my best description would be to call it an oasis in the midst of what can be a chaotic city. The hotel is located on the outskirts of the city center near a bus terminal that seems to be a nexus for all of Central America. But once you step through the front door of this hotel into the lobby you will find yourself surrounded by the tropical atmosphere, decor, gardens, pools and people that feels like the paradise found in many places in this beautiful country. Start with a cup of espresso from the machine by the front desk along with a snack of sweet cookies or fruit. The gardens that are the literal centerpiece of this hotel are a beautiful example of a wide variety of tropical vegetation found in various parts of the country, and they are all labeled with their local and species specific names. Various pools, fountains and waterfalls can be found in this spacious central area filled with spaces and seating that can suit any need to get away from it all. There are shallow pools for children and wading and a nice swimming pool for adults with a hot tub for soaking and plenty of lounges for soaking up that tropical sun. The rooms are elegant and nicely appointed with decorations of the region. The beds are mostly queen size with available adjustments for any degree of softness or firmness you might wish for. Each room has a widescreen television and separate seating area for working or lounging and most have a lovely view of the gardens or pools that the building surrounds. The public dining room serves a variety of local foods and features a terrific buffet breakfast that will please anyone. The staff we found to be very friendly and helpful and they put on a terrific wedding party for our friends. This hotel would be a great destination for a visit to Costa Rica, to be used as a central headquarters for daily drives out into the countryside, the mountains, the volcanoes or the beaches. A great place to visit or stay awhile.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

A few blocks from the main part of town and lots of traffic to deal with. We stayed here at the beginning & end of our Costa Rica tour. Had the beds just the way we wanted them, room service for a couple of sandwiches took 50 mins but they were worth the wait. The room was a good size with queen beds, table and two chair, & desk.
The bath was in need of a renovation; the grout was missing & stained. In general, just needing to be gutted with a new toilet, bath installed.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from the highway side - can hear traffic constantly

We stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a costa rica tour. The hotel has large rooms, with 2 double beds in ours, and a decent size bathroom. We had a very good breakfast included. All in all, a nice hotel.

I stay in this Hotel for a Conference. They put me in the suite area which is a private area of the Hotel. It was a very nice room, but it was facing a large avenue and I could hear the street noise. In general the hotel looks like it is reaching the time for a renovation, or it does not have too much clients, and some areas are not very well used and cleaned. The bathroom was too dark, and some appliance didn't work well. The restaurant wasn't very good and did find a plastic piece in my soup, and the manager did not even excuse themselves when I show him the piece I found. Other Hotel services were OK, but it definitively can improve.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms that are not facing the road
