8/10 Very good

Decent hotel, great food, super nice staff!
Nice hotel, the staff is super nice. The room was lovely however, the safe didn't work, the mini refrigerator was missing and the bed was really hard. Location was ideal, the food was excellent and once again, the staff was amazing. The front desk receptionist moved us the next day from #25 to #45 - and that room was ideal! In fact, I think that is the Grand Suite we actually paid for. One more thing of importance to note - prior to arriving, we had gotten an email asking if we wanted a pickup at the airport, we said yes, they said $45 - no one ever came; both an airport staff and taxi said they don't even have a car! Confirmed with hotel that they don't offer and I even showed them their email - that's sloppy.

My best experience
The best hotel, staff, and service I have ever known. They had every detail for sight-seeing, the cuisine, local hot-spots, and anything you wanted to know for the best experience. That is from the night staff to the manager and everyone in between. This hotel matched the wonderful experience of Costa Rica and I cannot wait to simply catch up with the friendly staff on our next visit.

Nice place to stay
Verified Expedia guest review

6/10 Good

The location is super convenient for shopping, etc. in Escazu. You can access all the major places without needing to get on the highway. Very easy access to the hotel and easy parking. Delicious included breakfast. Breathtaking views and very homy-feeling rooms. I felt like I was staying in a guest room at someone's home. A little lacking on Security. They leave the vehicle gate open all day with no guard.
