The owner was selling and there was no staff, no manager to help me as promised. There was only one woman there part time to clean. There was no breakfast. The owner gave me a larger room at the same rate to compensate. But, this really still was uncomfortable I was the only person in this large ...
We enjoyed our time in Colours. The staff was very nice and always looking to improve our experience. The pool is great.. not to big not to small. You disconnect from San Jose env. On a nice day, you enjoy sunny Costa Rica at SJO. Great music all day long. Food is also good.

We had a great experience there. Unfortunately we were only there over night. Pickup at the airport was a benefit. Helpful advice on area. Felt very safe taking a late night walk.

Doesn’t look like a hostel at all it’s more like a hotel, it’s so loud at night due to the bar inside the hotel . The shared bathrooms are pretty creepy and felt unsafe . Couldn’t wait to get out of there.

the villa was huge & so unique. very private nestled in nature. Jergen & Cecily were great hosts - felt like old friends & interesting to talk to. WARNING - getting to property is tricky & exiting was difficult to manage the steep terrain. also, 150 steps to walk to our accommodations - must be up ...

We stayed at Ruta Verde House the first night we flew into San Jose. Our upstairs room was beautifully appointed and comfortable, with amazing views of the surrounding coffee fields and mountains. We elected to stay in for dinner and enjoyed a delicious salad, ceviche appetizer and risotto prepared ...

I was very happy with my stay of 7 days. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were great . The staff were very accommodating and even helped me with suggestions on some of my plans while there .
This hotel is nothing short of fantastic. The staff have been wonderful to communicate with and the quality is outstanding. When booking a private hotel instead of a chain I always worry a little as you don't know what you're going to truly get but this one knocked it out of the park. The rooms are ...
