    The restaurant was too pricey. We had the buffet and it came to 70 dollars for two people, no drinks.

    If you’re arriving in San Jose and traveling elsewhere in the country, this is a perfect stop for you to begin your trip or finish your trip since its very close to the San Jose airport. The staff at the hotel are all very outgoing and friendly, and will go that extra step to make sure everything is perfect for your stay. Excellent breakfast daily.

    The hotel is very comfortable. It has a gym with a hot tub there is bar and big lounge area, which is nice considering a lot of hotels have an extremely small bar area. There is also hammocks to lay in by the pool and a small bar & restaurant there as well. The rooms are clean and quality bedding. If you like to run there are scenic trails throughout the outside of the hotel. I personally don't feel that there is a good area in Costa Rica and great location, but it is a safe hotel and the area is safe. The only downside about this hotel is it has three restaurants and the food is horrible. If you're a picky person you're going to hate the hotels restaurants. Japanese food that is nothing like Japanese food and margarine is served instead of butter. They do have someone who makes omelettes in the morning to order or if you prefer over easy eggs they can do that as well but remember you'll be getting margarine on the toast.

    Like I said the restaurants are something you should not go to in the hotel unless you're the type of person, and there are a lot of people that don't mind eating less than quality food. I'm just not one of them. I want real butter, high quality pastries and minimally processed food.
