Spacious and comfortable.
Apartotel is becoming our home away from home during our frequent visits to family in the Escazu area. The suites are comfortable and spacious. Breakfast is generous and delicious. The hotel is an oasis in the outskirts of San Jose!
Elizabeth, us1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Comfortable, Clean and Centrical
My husband and I stayed for one night. While he was at a meeting, I relaxed in the room and by the pool. The room was big, cozy and clean. It has all the basics you need to be comfortable. It was also surprisingly quiet in the room. Even though it is on the main road with lots of traffic, once inside the room you barely hear the noise. There is an internet box in each room, so the internet was fast and reliable. I was even able to watch movies from Netflix on my tablet without any problems. The breakfast was a decent size with fruit, cereals, yogurt, pastries, toast, scrambled eggs and rice and beans. The staff was super helpful and polite. They had coffee available in the lobby in the morning and afternoon. The grounds were very well maintained and clean. This is a great place to stay if you want or need to stay near Escazú, Rhomeser or Santa Ana. It is also near lots of restaurants and shops.

Best place in Escazu. Safe, friendly, and clean.
It was great. This was my 4th stay there in 3 years. As a woman traveling alone I feel veey safe and respected there. Its gated with guards. Small incomparison to large hotels. Personalized service. The breakfast is huge and high quality not like typical crap in US free breakfast. The area around it is very safe and walkable. Country and Restaurants next door.

Exceptional 10.0
Great spot on beautifully kept compound. Walking distance to my dentist, which was the nature of my visit. Extre clean and well taken care of. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. Many speak excellent English which is invaluable for us undereducated Americans. My only suggestion would be to make the rooms more cozy with the addition of some nice throw rugs and couch pillows.

Some of the nicest people in Costa Rica!
We came to Costa Rica for dental care. So happy we stayed here! The staff was very compassionate and helpful and very used to clients in my situation. The space was huge and clean. Breakfast everyday was lovely with cereal, fresh fruits, yogurt, breads and sweets, rice and beans plus either sausage, fried plaintains, etc. fresh juices and coffee. If you wanted eggs or pancakes they would do for a very nominal fee. The pool and hot tub were meticulously kept and big! Plus a small cool pool... nice for little ones. the staff was cleaning constantly. They offered to bring smoothies to me while recuperating! Or anything we might need! so helpful! The most important element and shiniest star was Adrien at the front desk. What made this hotel different from ANY other hotel was Adrien! He was so helpful, kind, and professional. I have to go back in six months for more dental work. I will stay here again, mostly because of Adrien!
