    Fabulous

    A very pleasant hotel with plenty of parking available. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room we were in was very comfortable with views over the city in the valley below. It sounded like some of the rooms were being upgraded before the high season kicked in but it caused us no disturbance at all. An outstanding feature of this hotel is it's botanical garden, at the back, great for those interested in plants or birds, or just want somewhere peaceful to stroll or sit.

    By taxi or your own hire car, this hotel is only 30 mins from the airport, making it a great choice to start or end your vacation. This was our first visit to Costa Rica and as birders the hotel grounds and in particular the botanical garden, was the perfect introduction to some of the countries beautiful species. The hotel is also within easy reach of downtown San Jose, or other attractions, (that appealed more to us), like, Sibu Chocolate, (great food) and the Toucan Rescue Ranch.

    Very good

    The gardens are amazing creating an oasis of peace within half an hours taxi ride from downtown San Jose.

    The food and drink are very expensive

    Los jardines son espectaculares, cuenta con senderos preciosos. La comida es excelente al igual que la amabilidad del personal.

    Very good

    besonders positiv möchte ich den wunderbaren Park erwähnen, es liegt etwas außerhalb von San José, somit kommt man dem Berufsverkehr sehr gut aus -> ideales Hotel für Ausflüge in der Umgebung

    Allen Allergikern kann ich leider dieses Hotel überhaupt nicht empfehlen. Das Haus ist durchgehend mit sehr altem, schmutzigem Teppichboden ausgestattet. Es gibt ruhige Zimmer in Richtung Park und laute Zimmer in Richtung Straße.

    La chica de la tienda fue más que amable, casi una amiga, al igual que los dos saloneros. El jardín es un tesoro, que bueno que lo traten como tal. Podrían mejorar el lado de los departamentos contiguos, ahi esta más descuidado. Probablemente el hotel durante nuestra estancia en 6 hoteles en el que la limpieza del cuarto estaba mejor. La cocina muy buena

    El dispensador de shampoo no servía, lo reportamos. Creo que había otro dispensador que tampoco servía..,. Creo el del lavamanos. Nos perdimos para llegar más de una vez, pero ese es un problema general de Costa Rica.

    Me pareció un excelente Hotel. Gente muy amigable. En el restaurante una atención espectacular. Igual el counter.

    El buffet del desayuno deben variar más pues uno se aburre lo mismo todos los días. Ejemplo poner una bandeja de quesos o carnes frías.

    Tout ! Qualité du service, gentilesse du personnel, jardin inimaginable, c'est un véritable parc. Restaurant de premiére qualité, déjeuner parfait, bar cosy (gentilesse du serveur et patience avec les voyageurs étrangers ne parlant espagnol ou un petit peu anglais). Piscine, sauna, tennis. Tours organisés par agence de voyage dans l'Hôtel, la réception appelle un taxi immédiatement si course en ville, taxi pas cher (si compteur).

    Si visite de la ville, prendre un taxi, méfiance à San José. Enormémént de monde et circulation difficile à comprendre pour francophone et américains.

    Superb

    Trädgården var underbar och mycket stor, nästan som en botanisk trädgård. Fräscht och fint rum och god frukost. Stor och vacker pool och fantastisk träningslokal. Nära San José och flygplatsen. På det hela taget mycket nöjd. Skulle vara en bra plats att ha en konferens på. Tips: Besök barnvänliga naturparken INBio Parque som ligger nära.

    En aning för formellt. Ingen personal visade att de kände igen oss fast vi stannade 4 dagar. Onödiga regler att man inte fick vara klädd linne i matsalen eller gå i badkläder i hotellet. Dyra priser på utfärderna. Ligger i ett lite tråkigt område, uppmuntrar inte till promenader.
