Stayed two night on a recent vacation to Costa Rica. Pick this hotel because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. I was not disappointed. It is close to San Jose and across the street from a huge park. If the occasion arises I would stay here again. The positives are too long to list. Super clean. Totally safe, plus gated...

Thank you for your review and for commenting on our courtyard! It is also one of my favorite spots in the hotel. The fountain along with the blooming flowers and the hummingbirds flying by, make me feel very peaceful! Please pardon the inconvenience regarding the cleanliness of the room.

The staff at the hotel were very friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. They made last minute arrangements to pick us up at the airport when our rental car deal fell apart and looked after us the entire time we were there, (even Spanish tips).

We decided to stay in the city for a few days prior to leaving for home. We took a few day trips from this location and it was perfect. The hotel itself is wonderfully appointed with housekeeping/kitchen suites. A nice touch is the little sofa sitting area overlooking the pool (outside on the main upper "hallway"). The full breakfast is...

The reception was very friendly and helpful, the room was good-sized and clean (and included a kitchenette) The bed was comfortable, the breakfast buffet was fabulous, and the grounds are attractive. Too cool to enjoy the pool when we visited. Apartotel La Saban is a lovely but not luxurious motel, and the location isn't five star. Nearby restaurants aren't common,...
