We stayed at this gorgeous hotel for one night after arriving at SJO before we left for Arenal/La Fortuna the next morning. Here is a practical review of all of the info that I wanted before I left. Hope this helps everyone!
1. We stayed Room #8, and it was a gorgeous room! It is a a deluxe king room. This room was very spacious as was the bathroom. The bathroom had his and her sinks, beautiful countertops with plenty of space. It also included a large garden tub/shower. The bed was very comfortable, and we had a great night's sleep in our very quiet room.
2. Access to town-You can defintely walk to the main downtown area (Museo del banco, Costa Rica bank, Mama's Place, market area). It was a 10-15 min walk on sidewalks, and we felt fairly safe in the daytime. The hotel will provide you with umbrellas if needed to take on your walk.
3. Exchage of money-The hotel will gladly exchange your dollars for colones for you at the front desk for the going rate we found on the internet.
4. Restaurant-We ate breakfast and dinner there, and both were great! I would highly recommend it.
We loved Hotel Grano de Oro! The staff was very friendly and helpful. They gave us directions and answered our every question.More
