This hotel needs remodeling. It looks old and the rooms are old fashion with very low ceiling and old and noisy a/c units. the breakfast plan included with the room is not buffet and honestly is very small portion. Infraestructure and poor breakfast.
The staff was very helpful. Or original room did not have the right beds for 4 adults. They immediately found us a better room, no questions asked.
This hotel has a nice layout and the staff is friendly. But there were some serious lapses. My wife and I purchased one of the hotel specials -- the Rain Forest package. When we checked-in around 9PM, it became clear that the receptionist didn't know anything about this package. And all other on duty staff knew little more. All they could find were a couple of 20% discount coupons for the Rain Forest attractions. They had no knowledge, for example, of when the tour operator would pick us up the next day. The coupons did have a phone number and they suggested that I call it. This tour business was, of course, closed for the day. So we did not know when the tour would depart the next day. So instead of getting up the next day at a reasonable hour and having a leisurely breakfast, we were forced to get up at 6AM, not knowing anything about our Rain Forest tour, and having to call to try to get it scheduled. We called the tour operator (who was very competent and very nice# only to find ou...
Even though our room was on the first floor and close to the lobby, it was very quiet. The room was clean and the beds were so comfortable. The staff was very polite and helpful and the food at both the restaurant and room service was excellent. The hotel interiors were beautiful and the pool area was very nice also. I would definitely stay here again.
What a great place to stay after a long road trip. Very nice setting with beautiful plants and gardens, you don't feel you are in an enclosed building like in other places. The staff made us feel welcome and did a great job assisting us with tours and information. Overall a great experience, would definitevely return.
My stay was very enjoyable. It was late when I got in and I wanted some wine to unwind with. The bartender was getting ready to close but served me two glasses and was very friendly. I thought the gift shop was loaded with interesting gifts. I also tried my luck at the casino on site. The atmosphere is like being next to a rain forest. One morning a bird of beautiful color and a vibrant song was outside my window. It is also within walking distance of a big mall. I highly recomend this place.
Forget everywhere else- for the money, for the comfort, for the warmth of the staff (the concierge helped me with the atm as it was in Spanish), the food, the pool and the gym are epic. Ironic that one of the best days of my vacation was the day before I left, at this hotel. Easy trip to the airport, too. We drove, but they have a shuttle.
We loved the look of the inside of the hotel. When we were there we had a lot of wind. The metal sheets on the roof were rattling with high winds. We woke up a couple of times by the noise! Further there is no time limit on letting people stay at the pool side at night. When we were there the Canadian football team was also staying in the hotel. They partied a lot until late at night (read: morning 1 a.m. and at new years night until 4 a.m.) what kept us from sleeping because our room was at the pool side! Think that management should limit the evening hours at the poolside until 11 p.m. We missed a real Christmas and New Years celebration! They did not even count down at the bar. The two restaurants 'on side' were actual 1 restaurant because the other one was not open at all during our 2 weeks stay. No other restaurants were available within walking distance! The restaurant inside the hotel that was open served very good food with a lot of choice. Their buffets are very good. There is...
We really enjoyed this hotel. There was a large pool and the dining area was partly outdoors, partly indoors. It had a resort feel and our room was just a few steps from the pool. The only negative was that there was a party going on virtually every evening around the pool for larger groups and some mornings where they set up early. We were up early to go on tours but for most people this would be bothersome to have noise that early. I don't hesitate recommending this hotel to anyone but if you want quiet, ask for a room away from the pool area.
This hotel is poorly designed for noise, you hear every work and squeak from everything in the hallways and outside all night long. We didnt get one minute of sleep as people were constantly wandering the halls going to the casino or otherwise. Service was also very poor. The guest services couldnt tell me how to operate half the lights in the room. The front desk couldn t cash travellers cheques into US dollars and this was the only hotel that couldnt do this. They sent us to a bank that also wouldnt cash them and then we couldnt get back from the bank as the hotel had no guest transportation and no connection to any shuttle drivers. We had to wait almost an hour in a LINEUP to get a taxi back to our hotel less than a mile away. Big waste of time. Food was very poor quality and they made a mistake on both of our meals. The restaurant ambiance is very poor. We couldnt hear each other talk over the swearing and yelling of all the guys sitting at the bar waiting for the casino to open. W...
This is a clean, professional and friendly home away from home. Service is good and the staff greets visitors with smiling faces. The hotel however, definitely needs a gym/ exercise room. A tennis court would be fabulous.
Location is great for what we had to do in San Jose. The staff at the counter is always helpful with any of your demands. The price is ok for what you get. The parking is very secure. Even if the breakfast is included with the price, don't expect too much about it. We tried to get, at breakfast, at different timings but it also seems that they always ran out of coffee, multigrain bread or fruits. You can hear people from the other room
