Superb Hotel

WOW! This hotel does a poor job showing how beautiful and ama in this hotel was. I was pleasantly surprised by how wonderful this hotel is. They need new pictures. I was very skeptical by looking at the pictures but this is a gorgeous hotel with wonderful property.

Fun in the sun

The hotel was very nice but I was most impressed by the staff's friendly attitude and willingness to help. I definitely want to give a special thanks to one of the front desk employee, Cesar. He really appeared to love his job and it translated to the way he treated everyone. Bottom line is, no matter how nice a Hotel is, if you're not treated with courtesy by the employees, that hotel probably won't be on your short list for a return visit.

Cheap Caribbean is Great but....

Everything was very good -- resort, weather, service, price etc. and this is the second trip on C.C. that we have taken and been pleased with. That having been said (and I know that this review is not supposed to talk about other companies), getting there and getting back is a huge part of the overall experience and can't justifiably be left out of any review. Our trip down and back on Spirit Airlines was horrible and would keep us in the future from booking any trip with Cheap Caribbean or another provider that uses this airline. When 771 reviews on Yelp give Spirit a 1.5/5.0 average score, Cheap Caribbean should not be using them!

What's to Love

This urban locale in the heart of San Jose is close to local shops, sites and city center.

Visiting the National Stadium - mainly used for soccer & worth seeing for the impressive architecture.

The resort's large pool where you can cool off - a refreshing treat, especially with an epic bar right there.

Relaxing at the spa with massages or plunges into the hydro massager, steam room or sauna.

 

What We'd Change

With only one bar, hotel nightlife is tame. The bar is a good, though, and the hotel is close to other downtown San Jose options.

 

Why You Should Go

You're just a short zippy 10 miles from the airport. You can dip into the pool in no time.

The resort staff is so friendly and attentive - you'll be spoiled as soon as you arrive.

You're in a prime spot to tour Costa Rica's volcanoes, hot springs, rain forests or in/around the city.

Free weights, cardio equipment and classes like yoga, dance & spin will help you stay fit.
