The Hotel is well located in Escazu, with good walking-distance restaurants at Plaza Tempo. Internet connection is great, has a decent business center, gym and pool on the 5th floor. Breakfast is good. The rooms are nice, not as luxurious as the Inter Continental, but they have everything you need and at a much lower price. Staff are very friendly....

Words will never do the justice to the respect that I have gained for this hotel. Upon arrival, I was greeted in Spanish, which I am not so fluent in, but fears subsided when the entire staff is so well fluently spoken in English.
