The ENTIRE staff were very helpful and friendly throughout or stay and most spoke passable to good English. Our room was large, bed was excellent Select Comfort. Food was good and overall prices were comparable to a similar stay in the USA at a similar property. Pool did not have enough chairs/loungers on a couple of hot days. Would definitely...

We stayed here for one night before flying home and had several issues... We had arranged through the hotel for a trip up to the volcano and agreed we would put the $140 for the driver on our room. When we arrived the reception staff didn't want to do this and were generally unhelpful... Room was great and so was...

Not a charmer, but clean and comfortable with a perfectly reasonable breakfast and a garden with a pool. Service is very good and the room was comfortable. The whole hotel is a bit old and needs a facelift, but it's perfectly fine for a night or two in San Jose.

I was a bit weary when checking in because of other negative reviews on TA, however the service upon check-in was great, the room was clean, the pool was nice, jacuzzi awesome, buffet wasn't bad compared to other Costa Rican breakfasts... Overall, the only inconvenience was the traffic to get to the hotel, but the place itself is great and...

This is a lousy hotel. I was there, unfortunately, an entire week, paying for a master suite. The service is sub-standard. There is almost no service. Most of your simplest needs will not be taken care of,such as cleaning your room. If you need restaurant reservations, forget about t. Better call the venues yourself. My suite was not ready on...

I went to the Radisson for a business conference that I organized there. From the event point of view, everything went well and the service was good. However, I was really disappointed by the services of the front desk. I had forgotten my toothbrush, and asked at the front desk at arrival to get one (2pm). They told me they...

I rarely give a terrible rating to any place that I visit. I also base ratings on the type of property. For example, I demand more of a large chain hotel in a big city than of a locally owned motel in a small town. I have prefaced my review of the San Jose Radisson with this statement to indicate...
