Euro style in laid back Costa Rica

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 13, 2008

While my first two nights stay in a hostel in downtown San Jose was convenient and practical, yet ghetto, my three nights at the Hotel Martino Resort and Spa, was anything but. My colleague and friend Julie decided to join me on the trip, but our itineraries conflicted and so I met up with her for the middle portion of my trip. Since she's the nurse practioner making the big bucks, she spared no expense and decided to stay at this out-of-the-way hotel that required her to hire taxis and shuttles to be chauffeured around. This place was luxurious compared to my SJ accommodations, but the location was impractical and areas of the hotel, ostentatious and not in keeping with the laid back Costa Rican vibe. However, there were many ammenities I took advantage of including the free breakfasts, free internet, discounted rate to the zoo, and use of the telephone.

Unique Quality: Our two bed suite had air conditioning and a balcony overlooking the pool. It also contained a small cable TV, two phones (the second in the athroom), a fridge, and a safe deposit box. Unique features of the rooms are the hand carved original doors and beautiful woodwork.

According to the hotel website, the rates include: a full breakfast, use of the gym, sauna, Roman steam room, swimming pool, and discounted pass to the bird sanctuary. However, with exception to the breakfasts, everything else seemed off limits. Even the hotel casino had no dealers operating the tables.
