We were in San Jose for the last few days of our trip and were able to make online reservations for 2 rooms at this hotel several days before our arrival. This is a lovely place to stay. Very nice rooms, excellent breakfast, convenient to other restaurants in Sabana, and very quiet and comfortable. They have a nice pool, but...

Our apartment was huge, clean,with two bedrooms and bathrooms for 90$. The location is not too bad, but at least a 15 minute walk to town. The swimming pool is small, but the seats around it cosy. Also really nice to have (a good) breakfast there. They have a washing machine, full load cost only 2$. Staff is okay, not...
