Reviewed 27 October 2008

What a fabulous hotel! The hotel has been under renovation and new managment. The renovations are almost complete and what a stunning difference. The rates are significantly lower than all the hotels in the area, and with the renovations and upgrades its the best value in the area!The hospitality is exceptional! The new owner, Matt pays attention to detail and makes sure your stay is outstanding. I would recommend to this anyone traveling to Costa Rica!

Let me tell you what a beautiful hotel to stay in. The new owner who is Matt is a very good host. Two of my friends and myself decided to stay there by word of mouth and a few other web sights with all saying good to excellent reviews. There is more updating going on in the hotel in the near future by which the owner Matt told us. If you think he is over priced call around and good luck because he is packed almost all the time and his rates are cheap compared to the quality hotel and services you get. You want something name it and they can make it happen for you. Let me tell you what check out his suites and penthouse rooms for the price he gives you you won't believe it. If you have the chance to meet the owner you will know why this hotel is one of the best in San Jose area. It is chica friendly and family friendly. You just have to respect the people around you. Also the rooms are keep neat and tidy. If you want your laundry done a maid the does your room will do it for just ask and its done. The only thing is just take care of the help and watch the hotel come alive. This is truely a great place to stay.
