Breakfast was exceptional! Bed was comfy & bath tub was soothing. Felt very safe at the hotel as well & the roof top restaurant was absolutely delicious & a great vibe.
Wish they’d supply more bottled water in room.
Lovely and very friendly staff. The main lobby is very well done and great architecture. Great place for an overnight stay before exploring the rest of the country. Large bedroom with a massive bath in the ensuite bathroom - big enough for the whole family!
Our room was next to a bit of building work and the beds were a little hard but it seems like they're upgrading the hotel bit by bit. The main shared areas were clearly more recent than the bedroom we stayed in.
Hotel Presidente was just a quick drive from the airport! Which makes it an ideal location to crash before or after exploring the rest of Costa Rica. It had a really hip industrial vibe which was fun. We are from NY and it felt a bit like home. Breakfast was included and the food was good and they had a lot of options. They staff was really nice and helpful! If you are looking for restaurants/shops everything is right out the front door. They also have a restaurant onsite and a cute little rooftop like patio.
It was pretty hard to find - needs better signage. Parking lot is SMALLLL.
Parking was easy. Early checkin was allowed.
Food was nothing special. Another bar bill ended up on our tab but was subsequently removed.
The rooftop patio is adorable! Amazing views of the mountains while you're surrounded by a gorgeous assortment of flowers. Loved that they provided a bottle of distilled water in the rooms. The free breakfast was delicious and has many options.
