Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We stayed at this hotel for 1 night in San Jose. The hotel goes by Villa de Rios in Costa Rica but as Apartotel on Expedia not sure why but it’s easier to find the location using Villa de Rios. The hotel was okay for just the one night. The bed was comfortable and we liked that the room had two bathrooms but the smell was not good. It smelled like cigarettes and air freshener/moth balls. We let the room air out and it got slightly better. We did not use the pool but it looked nice. The place itself is pretty centric and there is a covid testing lab less about 5 mins away by car which was very convenient.

I love staying here. The rooms are spacious, clean and have everything one needs to cook and dine in. When I have to stay in San Jose, I always stay here. The pools are also beautiful!

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Although the staff was somewhat accommodating, this is probably the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed in. I don’t recommend it to anybody. What’s terrible: breakfast, beds, pillows, AC, Internet, TV, and the list goes on. It says free breakfast but you have to pay for an omelette. You can’t even take a to go coffee to your room! You have to pay for printing docs in the “biz center”. No cancellation and no refunds. Stay away. What’s good: not much at all- maybe the location for some.
