This was second stay here and it was just as super as the first. If you are flying in ask them to pick you up at the airport and they will wait on your flight and have your name on a board to greet you right past the baggage screening area just as you exit. A quick free ride to...

We arrived in San Jose and since we were on a budget, we picked this hotel based on reviews! The Riviera staff picked us up in a van for free, upgraded our room & greeted us with win 🍾. We are officially on our honeymoon and the extra thought was beyond appreciated. Gaby in the Front Desk was so informative...

La Riviera is a great B&B Hotel to stay for a single night or a few days. The rooms are clean and well equipped. It has free Wi-Fi and the restaurant (Riviera Marketplace) is awesome, having a cozy environment and offering delicious food. Is pretty close to the airport and includes free shuttle.

Minimum redefined! Do yourself a big favor and spend +20 USD for a normal place. The room we got - Generaly we were disgusted by everything, even showered with our flip-flops on. The street is just below the window so don't expect to get a good night sleep or anything. The towels were moist and stinky The Wi-Fi barely worked...

Have been visiting Costa Rica for over 15 years. We like to book at smaller places instead of chain hotels when possible. Also like to book at different ones to make comparisons. This hotel was almost perfect ( the pool was closed). It was clean, comfortable and friendly. Milton, who is the shuttle driver among other things, was just so...

A comfortable, simple hotel for a good price. They organized a very early (5:30am), free transport to the airport, which was on time, quick, and comfortable. They also organized a take-away breakfast for me at the last minute. The staff were friendly and helpful. No complaints. Great experience overall.

I happened to get to stay at this beautiful hotel by chance. In my 12 years of traveling to Costa Rica, this was the first time that a volcanic eruption delayed my flight in or out of the country. The Turrialba volcano decided to let off a little steam (and ash!) this past Tuesday. First of all, I must thank...

I booked a room for our first night stay and the service and room were wonderful; breakfast was included, and with great selection (not continental breakfast).

We had a really pleasant experience with La Riviera hotel. They arranged a driver who picked us up from the airport free of charge. The hotel itself was really really nice- the rooms exactly like in the pictures, very clean, with the AC and tv. But honestly the biggest advantage was the restaurant- OH MY GOD- food was so delicious,...
