There are few good hotels in San Jose, but this one is by FAR the best. And the food - make SURE you include the breakfast buffet! Amazingly huge assortment of food, juices and 5-star service. The price of the hotel is greatly defrayed by the value of the all included buffet breakfast. FAR FAR FAR above any other hotel...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 March 2017

This hotel is very oriented toward the busy business traveler. Excellent restaurants, close to the airport, all the modern amenities, walking distance from the Multi Plaza mall and lots of business offices. My only negative experience was the mistake of booking it through GetARoom. This was a business trip which got cut short. I asked the hotel what the early...

I realized myself how staff sensible a five star hotel is. It is enough to have two or three “bad” elements to slash down the whole crew !!. This was the case at the Intercontinental Ezcazu, where one of the receptionists did not have the training to deal with customers, nor the smallest idea about it and in the lunch...

I stay here often for work. The rooms are nice but are starting to show a little wear. The staff is very friendly and helpful; most speak English well. They have a good gym, better than most hotels. The pool area is large and seems very nice, haven't had time to use though. A little work on the rooms and...

The music, food, and atmosphere befits an oasis retreat in the middle of the Central Valley concrete jungle. Gustavo in the lobby bar is one of the best stewards I've ever met. The hotel itself has a great pool, spa, and choice of culinary diversions. For business or pleasure, this Intercontinental is worth the trip.

This is a beautiful hotel, located close t the mall, in upscale escazu. Great dining in the hotel, many restraints, beautiful clean rooms, excellent view of city lights. This is an upscale hotel. Security, 24 7 and it is a family oriented hotel. As well as for business travelers. Close to many embassies.

I was on a business trip and it was very good. Nice rooms, confortable beds. I'm not so much a fan of the Intercontinental brand in general but this one was exceptionally good. Good service, nice pool area, gym, spa. And there is a mall right across the street.

Location is great if you're visiting San José. A couple of miles away from downtown (crowded areas) and about 10 miles away from the airport. The Lobby is always busy with groups, weddings, international musicians getting ready for a big concert and Flight Crews, so it might take a few minutes to register but once in your room, peace can...

The room is very comfortable. The best: the quality of the bed, sheets and pillows, as well as complimentary Costa Rican coffee and espresso machine. The room has special windows that prevent noise from the nearby highway is heard. Ironically the soundproofing is not so good inside the hotel, so you can hear what happens in neighboring rooms or the...
