After a few months of management of the hotel being handed over to a person who had no idea of how to manage a hotel due to the owner's poor health, the owner and another American are back managing the hotel and things are better than ever. They had a great Green Season special for and I can't imagine being...

This is a decent place. Rooms are good with a good nightly rate. However because I booked thru booking.com at $35 they tried to stick me in a room with no windows...I upgraded for an extra $15 and was given a nice room with a patio. Service is excellent, coffee is great. Not centrally locatef. Jettsys bar/restaurant next door is...

I had been chomping at the bit to return to Costa Rica after a two year hiatus, and there was no doubt in my mind where I'd spend my time in the capitol, Colours Oasis. On the outskirts of San Jose, but not so far that a short taxi ride would not get to the center of the city and...

Billed as a gay resort. Not true. More straight women than men. Little privacy. Decent food. Nice pool and atmosphere. Friendly people. Unfortunately, not close to anything, in a residential neighborhood. Would prefer a regular hotel in the middle of the city, since this is not a gay place anyway. Probably wouldn't return.

We are always disappointed in ourselves when we can't provide our guests with the experience that they are seeking. The most recent trends in hotel booking has been pushed more and more towards online travel companies like booking.com, expedia and tripadvisor. We do not have control over who can and cannot book with us. If there our straight guests who...

I really enjoyed staying at Colours. The staff was very friendly. I loved the pool area and jacuzzi. The location was very central to everything. The other guests were friendly and it was an overall great experience!

Pretty little hotel about 20 minutes from the airport. Although it primarily caters to the LGBT community, I didn't realize it when I booked the trip. Absolutely no problem. Great staff. Lovely little bar with premium liquor at fantastic prices. Food was also great. Really good sushi. Pool is very pretty, unfortunately it rained while I was here for 2...

My recent stay at Colours Hotel could not have been more fun. My room was simple but clean and well appointed for the great price I got. I enjoyed both meals and drinks in the restaurant almost every night, never thought I would be having sushi rolls and cosmos in Costa Rica! I felt totally comfortable in the environment and...

This was actually my second stay at Colours as I was there in 2011. So much has improved since then! This time, I stayed 2 nights while visiting friends in San Jose, and I could not have been more pleased with my Premium room (#12). Spacious and clean with a huge shower big enough for two (or three), and a...
