6/10 Good

Good value for the money, low water pressure.
We booked 1 night to get some sleep closer to the airport before an early-morning flight. We were expecting a comfortable bed and a decent shower. The shower was disappointing since the water pressure was not acceptable. Hot water took at least 5 minutes and a visit from the maintenance personnel to finally come out warm. Service was great, the staff was really friendly, they were pleasing every step of the way, and provided very clear information. The room was very clean. Sheets and pillows were top quality and the beds were comfortable. I would say they were double beds, I wouldn't call them Queen-sized beds. Either way, we got a good night (hours) sleep. We got no noise from the neighbors and enjoyed our black-out drapes. I would recommend this hotel for a short stay or for a night in San José in between Beach tours.

I have been staying at this hotel for years when I come visit Costa Rica. The manager always remembers me and is very attentive. She is the one who worked the afternoon shift till ten pm.
