Great stay. Wonderful staff. Very secure nobody gets in or out without checking in with gate security including Uber. shuttle from airport was free for min 2 nights stay. Someone waited for us at airport with name sign on and they called the driver. Very reliable and safe process. Apartments are huge and modern. There is noise from the streets but if you close the windows they are very well insulated. Will definitely stay here again next time.

This property is in a great location in Escazu and especially if you are doing dental tourism at America Dental. It is literally across the street. The rooms are very spacious and the wifi was great. There are a lot of dining options very close by as well as a grocery store close by. The staff are amazing, especially Larry on the front desk who helped us many times and speaks excellent english! There are 2 pools to choose from. There is some road noise so be prepared for that if that is a concern. Would definitely come back here!
