Affordable Hotel for the Thrifty traveller
Good hotel for my short stay in the awesome city of san jose costa rica. Its farther down from the city center but its close enough for a short drive. The hotel does need to update its amenities though , when i was the the elevator was down for the most part but that was not a big issue. The room was spacious and comfortable, the tv was a bit smallish but serviceable. Bed was large enough for myself and my SO, so it was a comfort. The hotel staff was accomodating and friendly, small amenities like a coin laundry for the thrifty traveller helps out a lot. The pool was always looking like the deep blue sea, so it was perfect when it wasnt raining but even if it was the rain was enjoyable enough. There was a dennys and a casino inside and close to a market if i need some other type of food to eat, so that was good 👍. This stay was a pleasant for me, so a good hotel for a single traveller or for a couple to stay in.

Basic for groups
Gos basic hotel. Always full of groups attending sporting competitions etc so busy and can be noisy. Confusion because one side of hotel is Izaru and other is Best Western. Had to change rooms as hadn’t been allocated rooms we requested. Keys kept having to be recharged which meant a trek to reception instead of getting into your room. Breakfast quite good but not for vegan, nothing except fruit. Did ask for hash browns to be included daily as we were there for ten days but it didn’t happen. Good and drink good in the casino but that is the only food other than Denny’s which is attached to the hotel.

Nice pool and breakfast
The pool was phenomenal. It is full size and in a lovely courtyard. The breakfast buffet was very good. Lots of plants where breakfast is served. My only complaint is the carpet in the bedroom. Hate carpets in hotel rooms. They are always heavily deodorized. Don't like the smell.
