For my first two nights in Costa Rica I stayed at Hotel Villa Los Candiles in Santa Ana. I chose this hotel as I had initially only intended on staying in CR for two nights and it was close to San Jose International Airport. I booked this accommodation through Wotif for $182.44 AUD for the two nights ($80.72 each night...

A few observations, among many: Loud, public area right next to rooms. My room's sliding door did not lock. "Coffee is not just a drink, it's our culture,"said the hotel's material. Coffee pot in room had no filter, no creamers, sugar, etc. Suite had less charm than a Motel 6. Stayed two nights. I've stayed in four different hotels in...

I went to drop off my cousin there and the place was lovely. I spoke to the daughter of the owner, she is in charge of marketing, lovely person and very accomodating. The room was very spacious, as well as the bathroom. Great amenities and for the price it was a steal. It felt like apartments. I loved it.

The place is kept clean and the beds are comfortable. It nice to have a small kichenette and living room area with a pull out sofa (although one of the two rooms we had just had a regular sofa).

It is hard to find a good place for a family like ours while traveling. We go to Costa Rica often as my wife is from there and I do quite a bit of business there, so we need good places to stay. We've struggled with that since our first son was born in 2013, and this time we were...

The staff is super friendly and helpful. For the price, you can't beat this hotel for value. It is about 20 mins from the airport and is located in a suburb. The rooms we clean and the wifi was far superior than all the places I have stayed in Costa Rica. Nothing fancy here, but clean and convenient.
