Used to have excellent restaurant. Now very poor and service extremely deficient. Had to call head waiter more than once due to poor service
The room hadn't been finished, there were concrete walls, and the curtains didn't properly cover the windows fully. The room service was incredibly expensive for what you actually recieved e.g. ordered chicken soup, was a really small portion with no side of bread. The staff at reception were also cold and unfriendly.
The food in the restaurant was good and also breakfast was excellent. Decent size rooms and our room was also quiet. Free parking is just outside the hotel.
Swimming pool not very inviting and really cold water (the outside pool was not heated). A bit warmer in the hot tub. Told the front desk that the air conditioner in the room was broken, because it was only 17-18 degrees in our room, it did not heat up even if it showed that it was heating, they only shut it down completely so the room could come to 20 degrees by the time we left. They had charged double the amount for the rooms on my credit card, so i had to contact my bank to release the second reservation. our bathroom was outdated, we booked two rooms and one of them had a broken air conditioner and the other one had a broken toilet, but the air conditioner worked fine.
Staff were very helpful especially Antonio at reception.
Javier, the porter was very friendly and helpful from beginning to end
Sergio at reception was very efficient and professional, but not at all friendly.
The position is close to the center of the city (10 minutes walking). The room is big and comfortable
The bathroom not at the Radisson level, some problem with water discharge and some stuff not properly perfect.
location, room is good
When we checked in they said they couldn't find our reservation but luckily they were not fully booked; several reasonable requests to reception left unanswered; the hotel is strangely built and our room is very far away from the entrance.
Great value for the location. Quality of the hotel and service were great. Gym is great also and Wifi all through the hotel
hot tub and steam room
nothing in walking distance for food or entertainment
Nice layout of hotel. Good value
Staff not as friendly as some other places in CR
Staffs are rude & unprofessional
Staff were courteous and helpful and took the trouble to help us with our onward journey especially Gerado. This was our 2nd time there and it was equally as good as the first. Breakfast is very good and varied.
The hotel is beautiful
Room service daily neglected to provide shampoo conditioner sugar for the coffee towels daily I had to ask for something in the night
Big room, big bed
Prices were very high for all the extras. Food was expensive and not worth it. The hotel taxis were a rip off and you could not go onto any street to hail one down. So you were captive.You could walk into town, but not at night ! The filmed music in the bar clashes with the two tvs. But they say its their policy if you ask them to turn it down, even if you are the only one in the bar.
Room quality, amenities and facilities. Very courteous and professional.
Everything. The staff especially Gerado on reception was exceptionally helpful and very polite - a credit to the hotel. Jose in the gym and Sergio in the business centre were also both very helpful and patient with us seniors! Nothing was too much trouble for them all. The cafe,restaurant and indoor pool were all enjoyable.The bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in even better than our own.We couldn't have wished for a better stay and look forward to returning later in November.
Comfortable bed, spacious room, enough towels. The driver Olman is a very professional, experienced, presentable, and reliable and I recommend him if you need a driver for the day.
I was extremely shocked and disappointed by the worst service I have ever received (I am a big Carlson member). Just a few of the main inconveniences: - I would ask something to be printed out the night before for 6 AM - at 6:30 they were still looking for my email; - Reception lies that the red (cheap) taxis are delayed, so that you order a hotel one - I asked for help with my luggage upon check-out- 15 min after no one showed up, I did it myself; - No One Touch Menu; phone didn't work anyway (only the 0 and calls between rooms- no room service, concierge, external line!); - Stinky and dirty pool area with salt and hot water - swimmers, don't even go there; - Badly trained (but polite) front desk staff. Slow and unable to solve problems in decent time (printing; invoice; directions); - Room cleaning was average- I would no get fresh body lotion/shoer hat/ conditioner every day; - Although it was mentioned - 100% non-smoking hotel- not even allowed to smoke in the parking, and the area around the hotel is dangerous. Good for health, but come on.. - And to culminate this disaster of a business hotel- extremely slow internet. Overall, I was so sick and tired ot this hotel, and I was to bring a big group there in Feb 15, but as soon as I experienced the hotel, I canceled my booking.com reservation immediately.
We are a young couple from Croatia. Greatest thing about this hotel were the rooms. Good room size, big king beds, clean, safe and with a nice staff.
We've booked this hotel in a hope to have a swim in a nice pool from the photos. Pool is in need for a renovation. Bad location. Need a taxi to get to the center.
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.
