Pros: The grounds and location are superb. Paula was warm and weloming and went above and beyond expectations, even helping me finalize exit paperwork for my dog to fly. I can't give a high enough recommendation.

Pros: What isn’t there to like? The place was amazing. Totally felt like family, beds were soft, and the WiFi was great. I highly, highly recommend that you stay here when visiting the San José area. The owners are some of the nicest people you’ll ever met and are totally accommodating.
Cons: Nothing. Everything was great.

Pros: We needed a room close to the airport as my flight was at 1:45am. The gate keeper came to our room to be sure we were up so he could open the gate for us to let is out and the. Of course had to let my boyfriend back in after he dropped me off. That was very nice of him to check on us so I didn't miss my flight it was a shorty
Cons: All was fine. It was a short stay for me
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Very peaceful place(8 units) near the airport and away from the hustle bustle of the fast moving city. A quiet sanctuary and the pictures are exactly how it looks. Karem who speaks english very well and her husband give it that extra effort of hospitality. Perfect place to return to!
Cons: Only thing maybe more towels.

Pros: I can't say a single bad thing about this hotel. Clean, comfortable, convenient. From the front desk check in with smiles snd snacks, to check out with shuttle service to the airport was ALL good.

I wished I had booked the first part of my stay here as well.
Cons: Nothing.

Pros: Location near the airport is its main advantage. Inside is peaceful, clean, modern, and comfortable. Front desk staff gave some great advice including that we return our rental car the night before our early-morning flight, and that the rental car shuttle would bring us back to the hotel. This was the best idea and greatly simplified our morning of departure. The hotel shuttle to the airport was quick and efficient.
Cons: The pool is tiny, and tucked away in a back corner. The cafe/restaurant in the lobby is modern and inviting with a great looking menu, however, our waitress was the slowest on the planet. Every step took about 5 times longer than it should have. Even when we finally caught her eye (the place was 90 percent empty at the time), and indicated that we wanted the bill, she took another 10 minutes to finish sorting cutlery before coming over and putting us out of our misery. The food was good, but the service was terrible.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Very friendly staff at desk who took time to check me in when they could not find my reservation. Maybe issue with online company I booked through but they still honored my rate.
Cons: Some issues with the hot water at sink and shower. Was either scalding hot or cold. Hard to tune. Not a deal breaker at all though
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Close to airport, affordable, queen-sized beds, big enoigh for 4 adults
Cons: Some of the staff wasn't the friendliest, but no one was rude. They were all informative. No complaints!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Everything about the hotel was just perfect. It was right down the street from airport and the shuttle takes you there every 30 minutes.
Cons: I had family staying on another floor and the elevator only allows you to go to your floor. Good security but too good I guess
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great time at the hotel. Modern, clean, easy to access from the airport.
Cons: No complaints at all

Pros: The price for one night was amazing, and the location to the airport was really convenient. If I had a layover in San Jose - Alajuela I would definitely stay there again.
Cons: Continental Breakfast was not included with the deal I got on Kayak.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Everything was very good. Friendly staff, good breakfast, good parking. Five nights and all went well.
Cons: The traffic at the entry to the hotel is nightmare.
Excellent 9.7
Pros: Came in on a late flight to San Jose and stopped off at the Holiday Inn Express for a night before jumping off into the Costa Rican countryside in the morning. For this purpose it did exactly what it needed to do. Shuttle bus that picked up at the airport was a plus.
Cons: A little bit pricey for what you get but not acceptable for one night. The breakfast options were pretty basic but in their defense they were a typical Costa Rican style (gallo pinto, eggs, coffee, and some fresh fruits). Traffic at the intersection in front of the hotel can be horrific so keep that in mind if you will be driving. Also, keep an eye out for the shuttle bus that comes around outside of the arrivals area and stops close to the taxi stand. A "helpful" local showed me where to go then just happened to mention that he works on tips. I could have just waited on my own for it...
Okay 4.0
Pros: Bed was comfortable
Cons: The room had a terrible smell. They said you could get wifi in the hotel, but it was really only in the lobby area. The traffic outside is very loud because of a crazy intersection and you can hear planes landing and taking off.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: We had a number of special requests and they were very gracious. Check in was a breeze
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Overall, everything was great. Location is perfect for flying to the airport. Staff was very helpful and really wants to help you! Room was comfortable and clean. 24 hour shuttle was awesome! Great value for the money. For those who arrive at off hours there is a Denny's close by.
Cons: Our only negative was the breakfast which was very processed (e.g. scrambled eggs were bland) and not enough variety for the cost of that hotel.

Pros: Very Nice people at the front desk. Clean and very large room .
Cons: Coulis not use the pool...too much windy that day.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: The staff and food was EXCELLENT! They went out of their way to arrange a rental car agency to come to the hotel and pick up our group. The food at the steakhouse was excellent as well as the breakfast the next morning. We arrived late after our flight and only stayed one night so I can’t speak about the location much, but it was far enough away from the airport that you will not be disturbed by airplanes coming or going. I would recommend this stay to others.
Cons: The beds were a bit more firm than we are accustomed to.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The hotel is very pretty and very clean. The girl at the front desk- checked in around 6ish on Monday, 8/15, Mother's Day in CR,.-wish I gotten her name- was phenomenal, welcoming, great smile and very helpful in getting three tired girls just off the bus from Quepos, situated. Helped us finding food and info on transportation next day for airport. Also brought some items we needed for the room. She was again there in the am, if she worked a double shit, she is super woman! Give her a raise! I'd gladly stay again if I'm in San Jose ever again!
Cons: Remote didn't work but fronted attendant brought batteries promptly. Shower gel dispenser was broken and laying on sink counter, not a biggies, just feedback. Restaurant closed early, we had just arrived and been looking forward to eat there, only two options for delivery were pizza, and chicken places, regretably we picked pizza, but hey we ate.

Excellent 9.1
Pros: The place is beautiful. Clean. Close to airport. Had shuttle that will pick you up at airport. Has a restaurant/bar. Beautiful pool. Perfect place to rest after & before traveling.
Cons: There wasn't anything I didn't like. But it is in a neighborhood that I was not prepared for when in your mind your coming to paradise Costa Rica. It is in the middle of a city neighborhood.
Excellent 8.5
Pros: Close to airport, and car rental locations, friendly staff, and hotel nice and clean. Excellent, efficient and convenient shuttle service for both car rental return and ride to airport. Was very nice to not have to worry about any of the transportation. The closed in compound creates a nice, oasis feel in a dense urban area. Would stay here again first or last night. Close to Alejuela and convenient drive to Poas Volcano and views of San Jose.
Cons: Very small room for 2 adults and 2 kids trying to pack up after a lovely vacation. Bed “and breakfast” usually means breakfast is included and not just available, but was the second time we noticed this in Costa Rica. So just be aware of this trend if you are on a tight budget. Still would recommend this spot for its location, friendliness and cleanliness.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Free airport shuttle 24/7
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great location, with a free shuttle to airport. Restaurant serves unbelievable meals. They are very accommodating. Not a whole lot to do in area though.
Mediocre 2.0
Cons: Upon traveling by bus all day to San Jose for my flight out the next morning, I get to the airport to call for my hotel shuttle... and am told there are no rooms for me, the hotel was overbooked. It's 8pm and I'm tired and hungry - the receptionist tells me to come to the hotel through their shuttle and they'll help me find another room. After waiting longer than she said it would take, the shuttle finally arrives and takes me to La Riviera. The lady at the front desk is nice and tells me that they've gotten me a room at comparable hotel right behind theirs. By the time I am finally shuttled over there and checked into my room it is nearly 10pm - too late for me to mess with any other arrangements for a room upon discovering that the room is NOT comparable in any way!! La Riviera looked nice with AC, flatscreen TV, a pool, free breakfast, style... my 'comparable' room, which was two dollars more even, was a hole-in-the-wall hotel down pretty much an alley. The room was a mess with multiple beds (one a bunk bed), AC or TV didn't work - it was a local family room - and no offense to that, but it was a room I'd NEVER pay $70 in Costa Rica for! I signed up to pay that amount for a nice, classy looking room in a hotel with gardens and ambiance! I felt taken advantage of and ripped off, and upon expressing this to the lady at the new hotel was met with nothing but the offer to find another room. Really?! It was too late and I was exhausted!! I wish either Kayak or La Riviera wouldn't have overbooked their rooms OR the lady would have been honest about the 'comparable' room so I could have found another at the airport before being shuttled to their nook in the huge city and essentially locked in at a late hour. This hotel looked super nice, it's a shame! I would never stay here though because of this experience.
