Inconvenient Location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 23, 2006

Admittedly I'm a Marriott fan & have been Platinum for many years. The overall rate was very competitive given the quality of the property. I paid $140 for a government rate & was upgraded to a beautiful suite with concierge room priveleges. The concierge room provides free breakfast, enough snacks at dinner you won't need to go out, free sodas and free sweets.

Unique Quality: The downside - if you're in San Jose to visit the "gulch" with other guys or plan to spend a considerable time in the downtown area the taxis can be prohibitive. I was only in town one full day & made two trips to town - once late morning and once early evening. Essentially a $15 ride each way, so I was out $60 a day for taxi service. This should be considered when deciding if it's an appropriate property for your needs.

Otherwise absolutely zero complaints & nothing but raves. But $60 a day for basic transportation could be a deal-breaker for many.

Free shuttle to the airport on departure.

Directions: Out of town relatively near the airport.

Beautiful Spanish-Colonial hotel well-located between the airport, San Jose and Escazu.

In a quiet neighbourhood, and partly surrounded by a coffee planatation. With its pools, driving, range, gardens etc., this has my vote for the nicest hotel in San Jose.

Unique Quality: Well-priced coffee/snack bar/souvenir shop on the property.
Great breakfast selection which you can have on a patio overlooking the valley.
The bar serves very nice late night food and dinners.
2 Pools, spa and a well-equipped gym with sauna.

Easy connecting roads to Don Propsero towards the airport, while also located on a back road leading to Santa Ana which connects with Don Prospero again at the Forum.

Directions: 5-10 mins. drive from the airport off Don Prospero when heading to San Jose.
