Hotel overall was as expected. Basic but comfortable, breakfast was good. Main reason for the poor rating is because we asked for a crib upon booking (hotel listing says they are available) but upon check-in the on duty staff was unable to get us one. They tried calling a manager once before saying “I guess I can’t help you” and didn’t even bother to look for one. Our baby needed a crib and this made our night very difficult.

The hotel was only 9 minutes from the Airport. Hotel was very clean. At breakfast I watched a staff member clean the floor then the walls of the elevator. We checked in late. There was security watching the door and parking lot over night. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. NO complaints

overall it was clean, simple, and open even at midnight for us. the problem was that we were on 6th floor, the Ac was bad and struggling and the shower water was luke-warm at best. The breakfast lacked fresh tastes of costa rica and cooked food was dry and salty.
