We've visited Costa Rica many times and stayed in many places.
Colours Oasis is without a doubt the best place to stay in the San Jose area if you are gay. Convenient location in a safe neighborhood (President Arais live a few blocks away), with many restaurants, markets, pharmacies, major shopping, the weekly markets and US Embassy all within a couple of blocks. Downtown with museums and nightlife a short cab or bus ride away.
We've stayed at another gay hotel in the San Jose area that is both remote and lonely, Colours is by far a better choice. Location, an on premises full service restaurant bar, combined with an ever changing group of soon to be acquaintances coming and going, made our visit here both fun, ultra-convenient and interesting. The owner James, has operated Colours for 3 decades and has the innkeeping business refined to perfection.
The staff including Liz, Dávid, and Johan, along with a host of others are friendly, helpful and attentive. Day trips or longer excursions are as easy as asking, arrangements can be made with efficiency. We arrived without plans and ended an activity filled two weeks having enjoyed our best visit to Costa Rica to date!
The rooms are squeaky clean and well appointed with a range of prices to fit almost every budget. The pool, jacuzzi, patio gardens and sundeck offer a serene respite from the city just beyond the lobby. An on site gym allows for those in need of some iron pumping, with an on call masuer to work the kinks out afterward.
Our stay here was a real treat, new friends from the world over were met, we will be back.
There is NO Other Choice for us, after your stay here we're sure you'll feel the same.
Thanks James! Tell Liz and the guys we'll be back soon------
