good breakfast and rooms and staff
swimming pool not very inviting
It is always good to be at the Radisson Costa Rica as I still feel at home even there is so many new employees but the one I already know they provide an excellent service
I was a bit dissapointed that this time noone informed me about my upgrade which did not happen this time as a frequent traveller
The people who works at the Hotel. The gardens. The location and A+ quality accommodation.
Some rooms are really very noisy. Sound isolation system should be placed at thr windows.
Location is terrible
nice hotel for the center of the city. good internet and location.
staff wasn't as warm and helpful as you normally find in Costa Rica.
Sleep number beds were a treat. Hot tub was really really hot. Live music in the bar every night (hit and miss though). There is no shuttle to the airport as mentioned on the website - they negotiate an inflated price with a taxi. There is no welcome drink as mentioned on the website either. You could get the same service at a $20 hostel, just sayin'.
This place is a total racket. It's an unsafe area, and everyone will tell you that. So you should take a cab. The porter will get you one, tell them where you're going, and settle a price. We got a cab coming back from a location that used a meter and charged less than HALF what the hotel negotiated!! So they're having a great time ripping off tourists, cool. Next major issue - found a fresh red blood stain on my sheets. Told the front desk and was told they only change the sheets every other day. No no, we change them now - not my blood, lady! The bartender forgot to charge us for some drinks, so he came pounding on our door, after 10pm with the "do not disturb" sign up, and demanded payment (but had brought a bill that was trying to double charge us). This is not the "customer is always right" service you expect from a Radisson in the states. They will rip you off at every turn. Rude!
The buffet breakfast was great.
The staff were nice in general, but at times quite slow/incompetent, and once downright rude. There seemed to be a lack of internal communication most of the time. For being such a hot country they need lighter bedding. You can't really walk safely around the hotel, which is a shame.
bed was oke
breakfast was disappointing staff was unprofessional
The servers in the restaurant are nice, and the food is fine.
Location is far from the airport, it took us 40 minutes to get to the SJ Airport during the morning traffic. The hotel seems kind of dark and old.
Good breakfast, big rooms and very nice gym
Not centrally located but not far from downtown
All apects apart from reception staff
The reception staff (those who dealt with us anyway). One person in particular who chatted away to another member of staff whilst completely ignoring us (no Hola or anything). He was brusque & off hand, a complete contrast to everyone else. This guy needs training!
Clean, friendly, breakfast staff fantastic , spacious
I told the front staff At reception the rooms telephone did not work 3 times, I couldn't order room service or make phone calls. They never repaired the problem.
Good sized rooms, swimming pool
Good size rooms. Pool area and gardens looked nice.
The room and bedding smelt of damp.
It was a nice and chic hotel, it had a swimming pool area and a gym. The gym was great, and breakfast was excellent! As I just had to overnight there, I didn't see around, nor I know the position in comparison to the rest of the city.
- the indoor pool was very small, and so placed that people doing spinning watch you, so it was a bit weird to swim there. - the outside pool was not heated, hence it was freezing and not nice to swim in there! That was a pity, as I would have loved to enjoy a morning swim - It was weird that they reused the papers and documents, just by deleting with a pen the previous customers' name... same with the room card. OK for recycling, but... Maybe is it because we didn't have a Gucci suitcase, but rather a backpack?
Clean spatious rooms. Nice restaurant and bar. good value for money. Very friendly and efficient staff
Location is not great. Close to some dodgy looking roads away from the center
- Personal - Space - Breakfast
- Some rooms are very noisy (Street) - Tournon is not the best location (Nothing in the area !)
Nice hotel with good facilities.
The location was fairly good and only a 10 or 15 minute walk from the city centre. The walk was ok during the day but I'd recommend getting a taci of a night.
Located just outside city center, good amenities such as pool and gym, breakfast includes costa rican and international food. Decent size rooms
Cold water in swimmingpool, however jacuzzi was fine
restaurant and bar were good, rooms are very comfortable and price/value is excellent
very humble but friendly workers
was able to hear the water usage in neighbors (not sure from which room came...).
location next to the exit towards Puerto Viejo - Caribe. good breakfast large parking
no restaurant in the vicinity of the hotel rooms had a very strong smell from long standing humidity the location is not easy to find, no directions from the airport unfriendly to smokers - but that is true for the entire Costa Rica
Breakfast- great selection Pool and jacuzzi Room amenities Friendly staff Nice gym Evening meal choices vast & inexpensive
Pillows - thin and lumpy Occasionally could hear early morning trucks passing by
My children love the pool, the hotel amazing, everything so good.
