I had the opportunity to spend a while at the InterContinental Hotel and the best part by far was the food at the Market Restaurant. The food was delicious, the fruits were fresh and the smoothies always hit the spot. The service at the restaurant was superb, the staff was very attentive to our needs and made sure every sitting was an enjoyable experience more especially the hostess/waitress Marianela who took the time to make sure all our culinary needs were met every time we visited the rest...

From the time I checked in, the desk clerk, Karla, was so accommodating and helpful with my concerns about changing from a single bed to two queen size that it made the rest of the day just as pleasant as being on a cruise. The gym and spa facilities were spacious and luxurious, and even though the steam room was closed, there was a very large spa pool that was even better!

Great hotel and always top notch. The amenities and room furnishings were all high quality and I felt super spoiled. Wifi was also excellent. Location is excellent too as the Multiplaza Mall is right across the street. You can either walk over there or the taxis will drop you off there for free and bring you back for free. =)

The pool is beautiful and the view is great from the room. The room itself is good, similar to other Intercontinental hotels in big cities. The food is lacking though, compared to the intercontinental in Mexico City. Not bad, but nothing special.

Excellent hotel well up to the usual Intercontinental Brand standard, but with local flavour in terms of the style and decor. Great location and with helpful and courteous staff. A good pool area and fitness centre. Excellent restaurants within the hotel and a casino opposite. A quality place to stay for business.

I found this hotel to be very comfortable. The location relative to San Jose is great, and its right across the street from the Multi Plaza mall. In addition, the good, the hotel has inclusive restaurants, shops, and taxi service. However, I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone looking to explore San Jose or get feel for the locale since it's a considerable distance outside of town and is in a very upscale area. I booked the hotel with my IHG points and I thought the staff was very helpful ... Read more

I go to San Jose quite often, and because my office is close to the Inter, always stay there. I found out that for $200 dollars a year, I can get Ambassador status and stay at the executive wing of the hotel. So I have been doing that for quite sometime now. The Intercontinental is a very nice place to be at. The service is second to none and the choice of places to eat are real nice. The hotel has like five restaurants in the building, great spa and well equipped gym. The pool is really nice a... Read more

We stayed 2-nights during our travels through Costa Rica. This hotel is in a great spot, walking distance to the local mall and not too far from the airport. The staff is so friendly and helpful and the rooms are beautiful. The main restaurant puts a good spread for breakfast but truly shine during dinner. You can build your own pasta, pizza, burger or wrap, all of which were delicious!

We spent 6 nights in the club tower. All great, very good restaurants, great people until we were asked to pay cash 1 USD to post a card already stamped by the receptionist. First time in my life! I asked the taxi driver to do it, it was free! I would recommend the Italian restaurant

The hotel was beautiful, pool was great, food was also amazing. But the service at the front desk at check in, during the stay, and at check out could have been improved. Just not a very warm and friendly service from the staff. The ATM machine was not working most days during my stay and the staff wasn't very helpful with directing me to finding one nearby. I ended up just venturing out on my own and low and behold there was a full service bank right across the street at the mall. That w... Read more

I just love the breakfast, so full of options. It was very nice to have breakfast with thIs view of the restaurant to the swimming pool. The gym was awesome with more than one treadmill, bikes and weights equipment to do some lifting. The swing pool was beautiful. The bed really really comfy! I love the shower and the bath tube. I would for sure recommend for family and friends. For sure looking forward to staying in again!

This hotel stands out. Elegant, modern, oversized rooms with tasteful decor and appointments. A very large bathroom with seperate shower and tub area. The bed linens and pillows are plush and exquisite. I enjoyed the breakfast each morning. Good variety and well prepared. The Costa Ricans are very warm and hospitable. The staff was attentive and service minded. Though I never enjoyed it personally, the pool area in the center of the complex, looked very inviting and well used.

BEWARE!!! We paid close to $300.00 a night to stay in the Club Tower which is across the ballroom and there was a wedding with REALLY LOUD music playing after 1:00 in the morning. We called the front desk at 12am to ask when the music would be done and we were told "It shouldn't be much longer." Then called the front desk at 1:00am to see if they could at least turn the bass down and we're told they would send security to take care of it and it is now 1:20 and the bass is so loud that it is p...

We received excellent service from the moment the cheerful Bellboy Jesus greeted us at the front door. The Market restaurant served a superb international breakfast which kept us going for the whole day. One evening we dined at the steak and lobster restaurant, The Factory. My steak was excellent, my wife enjoyed the wonderful lobster. Travellers from the UK be aware that as yet the front desk does not change Pounds Sterling into Colons. Take some Euros or US Dollars.

Went as a family group for a Mothers' Day lunch; great food, good prices and superb service from our waiter Hector. However the policy of charging for parking with no waiver for using the hotels' facilities is a negative - it is a sort of double charge.

For a week my family and I stayed in this hotel. One of the best in the area. Great options to eat, close to the mall, one of the best breakfasts ever. The room is not modern, and was not perfectly cleaned. The bed had some signs it was time to exchange it. But the staff was very friendly, and all requested were managed properly. The pool and infrastructure was really great. If you plan to stay for business or for pleasure, you will, for sure, have a good time.

I stayed at this hotel for just under a week. The hotel is smart and business like but with an air of luxury. The rooms were spacious and clean. The bed was incredibly comfortable. Slippers and a super soft robe was available in the room but unfortunately no bottled water. The lobby was nice but the hotel bar seemed like an extension of the lobby and was therefore rather soulless. I felt they should have a separate bar and a covered outside area to sit as it can rain a lot there but isn't cold. ... Read more

Very well appointed rooms, fast wifi and some of the best restaurants in the area. The service was excellent and the conference facilities were top notch. My only compliant, which was minor, was the need to request a toothbrush and toothpaste as they were not automatically supplied in the rooms. Overall a great business hotel with a large mall next door. Hint, buy your Costa Rican coffee in the supermarket next door rather than at a tourist spot or the airport as it is much cheaper.

Before I start I would rank this hotel between a 3 and a 4. This is a higher end conference hotel with a prime location. We stayed here one night before leaving Costa Rica since we had an early flight out of SanJose the following morning. The rooms were a bit dated yet clean and comfortable. Service was comparable to any higher end conference hotel. What I loved about this hotel was the location. It was a close cab ride to the airport. There are restaurants located right in the hotel and a l... Read more

This is the worst hotel ever, the staff was rude no very rude, the restaurant was equally crappy, I sat in the dining room for 45 minutes waiting for a cup of tea another 20 minutes for someone to take my dinner order. I was showering and the steam from the shower set off the fire alarm aside from the shock of the alarm blaring there was a problem explaining the problem to the front desk because they were doing more blaming than problem solving, stay there at your peril

Stayed at the Intercontinental hotel for 5 nights. King room. All rooms are non smoking! When you book, get the breakfast package, because the breakfast buffet is outstanding. Not your typical hotel buffet, this has a multitude of hot foot, cold, biscuits, pastries, cereal cheeses and meats! Along with some Costa Rican foods. Well worth the price They offer tours of the area and car rentals If you do come it is a 30 minute ride to the airport Taxi $35 USD HOTEL $58 Uber....less expensive

I spent 5 nights/6 days here. Hotel is clean and staff was nice. I really thought the cost was expensive. The building is old and the rooms were ok. They were clean, but you can tell this is an old property. I am glad I stayed here, but would not stay again. Restaurants (on site) are expensive. Property is close to the mall, just across the street, which did help with the cost of food. Again, staff was nice but wouldn't stay again.
