Check-in was very slow (20 min per person). When people jumped the line, it was even worse to stand there and wait. They did has 2 people working the desk. International phone calls are free, Domestic calls cost.
Room was standard HI Express. The bed was extremely firm, too much so for my preference. The A/C is either on or off. If on, it runs all the time and dries the room out. Not my preference.
It is just a few minutes to/form the airport by their free every 10 minute shuttle. Drivers were very polite and prefessional. They had at least 2 shuttles running during Monday AM.
There is a Denny's, Rotisserie Chicken place and Casino Bar right across the street. I saw a flyer for a steakhouse, but did not see it.
You can pay your Costa Rica Depature Tax at this hotel for a $4pp Service Charge. We did that rather than see how long the line was at the airport. Thought is was a good value for the time maybe spent at the airport.
