I DON'T KNOW. I booked it for my retreat clients & once I came back home to Los Angeles is when I found out that the hotel said they had no such booking & now I have to reimburse them. Embarrassing to me as the producer of this retreat.

You need to reiburse me. I booked other rooms at this hotel for the rest of my students on TRAVELOCITY & they had no problems getting into their rooms.

The food in the restaurant was excellent. Also the staff was cordial and helpful.

The lighting in the room was very dim, especially on the night table. It made it very difficult to read in bed.

Beautiful view. Services, cleanliness, friendly people, helpful. Food very good. Charmed

No

I cant say enough about the good services and the friendliness of the people. The price was fantastic, and everyone was helpful. The girls at the front desk, booking the tours and explaining the tours, they were efficient and friendly. They were always happy. All the people I encountered were happy.

The facilities where in excellent condition and it's a true 4+ star hotel. The staff was wonderful and I will be back for my next business trip to Costa Rica.

The location is terrible to get into with the intersection.

The food.

Rarely do submit reviews, however this particular hotel deserves the effort. I'll put this as plainly as possible. I wouldn't stay here again if I were forced by gunpoint. I'd rather take my chances with the gunman.. I sincerely hope this signifies my overall disdain for this property.

We stayed 2 nights at the Balmoral as part of our 8 day trip.  The hotel was very clean and easy to find with the GPS in our rental car.  Parking was easy as we pulled into the garage and the gentleman took care of parking it for us.  We stayed on the 3rd floor.  The room was clean and comfortable except the bed.  The mattress itself was extremely hard.  WiFi available in the room, mini bar.  We had trouble with the safe located inside the room.  We called the front desk and they had someone up immediately to take care of the situation.  The halls were very quiet; day and night.  We slept with the windows open one night and never heard a peep.  Our windows looked out into a small courtyard area.  We only ate one breakfast there as we had an early morning rafting trip one day.  It consisted of eggs (made to order), pancakes, rice and beans, fruit, cereals, pastries and juice.  Definitely a plus that it is included in your hotel stay!  There are several shops located inside the hotel.  W...

The location was great. The rooms were slightly above average. But the staff, in particular Shirley, was awesome. I would stay there again just for her pleasantries.

We were upgraded, so those are the rooms I rated. The rooms we would normally get, like the one we reserved in person, would not have rated as highly for the price.

Great location. Center of downtown San Jose. Excellent staff. Only average rooms.

Everything was good except when I asked for something from a bag that was stored, I did not tip. I was thinking I will tip when I get the bags an hour later. This was a mistake. When I did need my bags, the front counter had me wait for 20 minutes before they called for the bags. This was purposeful. When they did call, the bell hop was curt as he took me back to the storage room and pointed at the bags with no offer to help with them. I wanted help as my shoulder had recently been operated on and I wanted to tip, but was given no opportunity to do so.

I have stayed at this hotel three times for two weeks during each stay.  I enjoy staying here because the staff are wonderful, friendly and very helpful.  i feel very safe as the security is always present. It's quiet during the day, the pool is nice and you have the option of laying in the sun or under a shady tree.  I even like the Denny's as the staff is also very friendly and attentive. There's a little shopping center about a block away with a grocery store, restaurant upstairs is very good.  There's also a restaurant across the road within walking distance that has good food.

I booked a room at the Residence Inn in Escazú because I needed to be close to CIMA Hospital. I had no idea that it was right next door! It's literally a three-minute walk from door to door. The hotel is exactly what you would expect of an extended stay business hotel. My room was spacious and comfortable. No complaints.

Small, 42-room hotel. Free breakfast, lunch and dinner prices are at least = to US (if not more) but good quality. Least expensive room on interior, skylighted hall - to my mind a little depressing if you have to spend any significant time there during the day. Wifi throughout. Gym amounts to a treadmill, an elliptical, and weight- training equip all very satisfactory quality. Be prepared to take a taxi for any significant distance. US currency seemed to be accepted everywhere.

Recommended as a hotel for families with children ... no casinos and the night life that comes with them. My wallet with documents and passport was 'lost' in a taxi when we were dropped off in front of the hotel. The staff went the extra mile in an attempt to help us recover it by contacting the radio stations which taxi drivers listen to ... something a tourist would not have known to do. Spanish not required. The kindness and respectfullness from all the staff made our stay a pleasent one.

Hotel Le Bergerac was our home base for our Costa Rican 8 day excursion with dear friends. We stayed there on the recommendation of a couple who have been to Costa Rica and stayed at Hotel Le Bergerac six (6) times. We can't WAIT to go back! The staff truly became our family. The rooms were clean, comfortable & spacious. Each room has a private balcony and/or private outdoor terrace. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. The complimentary Tico breakfast with local fruit, eggs, beans, rice and coffee/tea was delicious. The Hotel Le Bergerac is in the heart of the city, yet we felt like we were in the country. Rooms were very quiet. Suzanne, Charlotte, NC

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
