    Spacious, clean and quiet

    We always choose to stay at Apartotels & Suites when we visit Escazu or San Jose. The suites are reasonably priced and quite spacious. Service is very good and the breakfast is superior to most we have encountered.

  • 2,0.Poor

    Nope

    Unfortunately we awoke with strong allergic reactions, headaches and congestion. We realized once leaving the room and being able to almost instantly breathe v clearly again and feel well that there was something in the room...cleaning chemical or something. We were issued a refund but not for the night we stayed and had this occur and only for 1 of the 2 remaining nights that we did not stay. Hopefully others have better experiences

    With a multiple building property, families are placed separately from couples and singles, including a separate pool. This is a great plus, allowing for quiet and tranquility.
