The guide provided to us did not know English with the result we had real hard time communicating. In the lift you could only go up to your level with the room key given .So if you have family members on other level somebody had to come get you. We thought it was strange.

Picked this hotel for our family based on Internet reviews. Hotel is pretty clean, bed was comfortable, staff was overall friendly. We were not in the hotel that much during the day as we were out and about. Tried to used the pool a few times but it was down for cleaning during those times. The gym is decent and so is the daily breakfast. Hotel was not far from some restaurants and shopping but I wouldn't suggest walking further than this nearby modern shopping Plaza that had both a supermarket... Read more

The hotel is as I said, adequate. Stayed on 3 different occasions for 1 night each and each time found service a huge issue (no towels in bathroom one night, a reception attendant who clearly didn't want to help answer some questions, a very rude female young waitress in the restaurant, room service that was beyond poor and late (and I believe caused by the actions of the rude waitress at the restaurant). The rooms were generally clean, however one of the tubs had mold around the chalking. If... Read more

The Radisson employee's do their best. The rooms are big and clean. But the management has forgot somewhere their "100% guest satisfaction guarantee". First when you make your check in you must pay the all week in advance. Even if you have a major credit card. Second if you drink a beer or even a juice you must pay in cash. You could not charge to your room, unless you open a credit in your account. It means you pay in advance for the room...and you must still open a let's say $150 credit if ... Read more

Stayed in the radisson for 2 nights when we first arrived to San Jose. Described as 5 stars (on the sign as we walked in) but in the US or UK more like a 3 star. Reception staff were friendly enough but I felt the hotel left a lot to be desired. Felt quite dated and characterless, with long dark corridors with little light, was almost like something out of a horror films at times. We used the spa pool twice (the main pool was far too cold to use) however due to being the wet season it was rainin... Read more

Outstanding service and good rooms, and excellent gym facilities (Gold's Gym), but no view of beautiful San Jose, not much to see in the neighborhood, and just a bit too far from the city center - and since traffic is so bad in the city, its hard to get out. Fine as a base for visiting sites outside of the city. Breakfast is good, but the hotel restaurant is boring and overpriced.

It just about works as a pit stop for the airport, but it isn't enjoyable. You're better off trying somehting else out or paying more for a better place. It has a vast amount of disinterested workers who don't really want to help you. Even the front desk can be unhelpful. For example when I left I said to the front desk that I'd need help with the big bags in the room, the man kept ignoring this and just gave me back the room key I'd checked out with. I had to find a bell hop myself. It's a hug... Read more

I have given this review 4/5 because it is excellent value for money! We stayed on the first and last night of our trip to Costa Rica, due to convenience with the airport and it worked well for an over night stay. The hotel was clean and tidy and I couldn't complain about the room at all, It had a comfortable bed and a good shower. The place itself felt soulless and big.

The hotel was extremely clean, and the staff extremely helpful. The pool was beautiful and the restaurant staff were very courteous and helpful. MY only negative remarks about the hotel were the internet, which was very slow and would frequently drop it's connection even though the wireless had good reception, and I was hard-wired.

Went to Costa Rica on a whim last minute ( Like one day notice) for my birthday and found this place. I was very pleased. They had a great breakfast all things considering and the price was really cheap i think less than $50 a night, maybe I got a good deal. There is a pool gym and all of that. It is very safe with a guarded gate that is not a hassle at all if you are staying there.

We grabbed a bottle of water in the room as we were desperate - nowhere nearby to buy bottled water and they don't sell it at the hotel. We knew it would be expensive, but this takes gouging to a new level: They charged us $US7.50 for a bottle of water! Really, that is just outrageous! I don't want to support hotels that treat you that way. It cost them about 30 cents.

This is very nearly a four-star hotel, because the rooms are very nice and the facilities are good. However, I have to round down to three stars because the food service is only so-so, the WiFi is somewhat spotty, and the neighborhood is dreary. On the positive side, the rooms (both bedrooms and bathrooms) are spacious and clean. The beds are comfortable, the toiletries are nice, and the towels are plush. Some of the fittings in the bathroom are rather flimsy, but it‚??s not a problem. Free... Read more

We stayed in this hotel for a work meeting over 10 days in July. The rooms are average, good sized. The main problem with the hotel is the terrible food quality at breakfast, coffee breaks and buffet lunch. Bad products, bad presentation and terrible preparation. The only good thing was Britt coffee, and nothing else. Also, the location its quite bad, with nothing nearby as an alternative to the over-expensive hotel restaurant.

The hotel is a little on the older side. We had a little issue with one of the windows not closing. This is not so good when you are trying to keep mosquitoes out. They have a combination of hot and cold items for breakfast which are included in the hotel rate and you get free wifi. This hotel is good for an overnight stay.

As a frequent business traveler, I am the first to appreciate a safe hotel with basic amenities. However, I just can't understand why people would stay here when they have other options. It's not the worst hotel but there really isn't anything too redeeming with it. It seemed like it was popular with the "tour bus" tourists, so perhaps that's what keeps the business coming in. Pros: - safe! - good internet - massive rooms, which is great for families I imagine - the lobby bar served pretty goo... Read more

I have just come back from this Hotel and it is in general a good place to go, Reasonable standard, excellent reception staff and even the porter took the time to point out fire exits and stuff when I went to my room on the first day.
