Hotel Villa Dolce is in a convenient location. Rooms were clean and had everything I needed. Staff are all friendly and extremely helpful. The same can be said about the owner and his wife who live on the property. I loved my stay here and would recommend it. I definitely will be back!! Pura Vida Nothing
The owner/manager was really friendly and helpful. This was better than expected for the price. Our only complaint was some spiders/webs under the bed, but that's an easy fix.
The 'manager,' son of the owner, was superb! He was easily reached by phone, spoke excellent English, arranged for a rental car and a cab to get back to the airport, gave us directions and advice. We 'adopted' him! The driveway up to the B and B...slightly steep which is quite common in the mountainous areas of Costa Rica.
The owners were so friendly and helpful - we felt safe and comfortable here. It became our home away from home.
The staff was very helpful and always available The uppper screens were filthy, hole in the wood was plugged with a piece of paper.
Wonderful hospitality from staff. They go far above and beyond to make sure everyone is happy and comfortable.
The staff were very helpful. Dank little rooms, terrible smell of something like diesel and septic that would come pervade the room from time to time.
The owner and staff was super! They gave us directions to help us find our way around. The room was simple but nice. The casada dinner we had was very good. Breakfast was good too. Te grounds and pool looked awesome. It was difficult to find for us with no directions, but it wasn't the owners fault.
Close to airport. Great front desk staff.
Close to airport, affordable, queen-sized beds, big enoigh for 4 adults Some of the staff wasn't the friendliest, but no one was rude. They were all informative. No complaints!
Location near the airport is its main advantage. Inside is peaceful, clean, modern, and comfortable. Front desk staff gave some great advice including that we return our rental car the night before our early-morning flight, and that the rental car shuttle would bring us back to the hotel. This was the best idea and greatly simplified our morning of departure. The hotel shuttle to the airport was quick and efficient. The pool is tiny, and tucked away in a back corner. The cafe/restaurant in the lobby is modern and inviting with a great looking menu, however, our waitress was the slowest on the planet. Every step took about 5 times longer than it should have. Even when we finally caught her eye (the place was 90 percent empty at the time), and indicated that we wanted the bill, she took another 10 minutes to finish sorting cutlery before coming over and putting us out of our misery. The food was good, but the service was terrible.
Location, close to the airport and has restaurants available for those arriving in the evening
Very close to the airport and a free shuttle every 1/2 hour. A good first or last night stay. 6-7 restaurants right across the parking lot.
El hotel es.bonito El servicio es pesimo
Great time at the hotel. Modern, clean, easy to access from the airport. No complaints at all
The price for one night was amazing, and the location to the airport was really convenient. If I had a layover in San Jose - Alajuela I would definitely stay there again. Continental Breakfast was not included with the deal I got on Kayak.
Everything about the hotel was just perfect. It was right down the street from airport and the shuttle takes you there every 30 minutes. I had family staying on another floor and the elevator only allows you to go to your floor. Good security but too good I guess
We just returned from a 3 night stay which was part of the 'Amigas in Costa Rica' package. El Silencio is not 'just another upscale hotel or lodge', it is truly unique. Immersing ourselves in this location, literally we could feel ourselves unwind and relax from the moment we stepped out of the car. From the first greeting by the friendly and accommodating staff, we were made to feel like this was our home. It was such a remote and peaceful location there were many times that we felt like we were the only two people there. There was a good balance of activites/tours and relaxation time. The food selections are healthy and delicious, the dining area spectacular and we appreciated having the organic gardens and trout pond accessible to walk to. The cultural experience was a highlight of our stay, the local people made us feel like family. Being here has by far been the best vacation experience we have had. We are rejuvenated from being surrounded by the beauty of the cloud forest, hik...
the people were very nice and helpful a pleasure to deal with the room was basic beds bathroom overhead fan/light no safe it was the jets passing over or taking off that woke me twice.
The accommodations were decent, I arrived at 2am and there was somebody there to check me in and show me the room around, very friendly. The place was fine and cheap (I stayed at the JW Marriot as well for nearly double the price but it was nice!) I only stayed the night and then left at 7am where the office guy cooked a DELICIOUS breakfast and the coffee was AMAZING. The breakfast was a nice plus! I didn't really check out the amenities because I literally stayed for only like 6 hours. Called a taxi for me which arrived promptly The room was nice but there was no AC (I think) but the fan worked very well. I didn't feel like it was super clean and the bathroom was small! The shower was fine but the pressure was very low, NO shampoo or conditioner or lotion or anything but they did have bar soap, so that's something... It was a small room, and online the price was the same for a single or double bed but at the hotel it was $8 cheaper for a single bed, which I would have booked if I knew in advance. They ask to pay in cash, dollars or colones, which is better because I avoided my credit card fee.
Close proximity to the airport , Very friendly staff
I was at the pacific cost in costa rica, so to void flight issues i came back to downtown one day before my flight, looking to save few dollars i book at the martino hotel, very beautiful place with a bit of italy, the best thing was the food and the staff, so i m very happy and my best to everybody there, thanks crew... hope to come back very soon, my promise to stay more days and get a free spa, :)
We stayed three nights, wonderful hotel, great food, the spa is gorgeous but VERY expensive. Do NOT bring any children to the Hotel Martino Resort. No playground, nothing for a child to do. No 'Kiddie Pool', no child portion plates in the restaurant, and the child seat was old and not in very good condition. I do not understand how this was rated a 5 STAR hotel
The pro's were: - Nice staff -Big room -Nice tours leaving from the Resort -Food in the restaurant was pretty good Con's -Not really close to anything -As soon as you leave the hotel, you see the 'real' San Jose -Everything else was fine up until the last day. I went to the airport and realized that I left my camera in the room, so I drove back and to get it only to find one of the cleaning ladies stole my camera and would not admit it. I know exactly where I left it... GUARD YOUR BELONGINGS!!
Stayed for 3 nights drove to Arenal for 2 nights back to Martino for 2 nights. My wife our 8-year-old our 15-year-old and I. Wonderful food good wine selection gorgeous pool terrific gym. Never went to the spa. Rooms were very nice staff polite and fun Great zoo up the road #40walkable#41. We dont know exactly when...but well be back...we ALL loved this place. Keep in mind this is Central America and its important to take your kids places like this instead of Las Vegas or Orlando. We found everything in Costa Rica charming...from the narrow roads to the little lizards to stopping for lunch in the middle of nowhere. Wonderful hotel great vacation.
Un maravilloso lugar para alojarse! El personal era servicial, amable y profesional. El hotel estaba muy limpio, y la habitación cumplió todas nuestras expectativas. Servicio de transporte al aeropuerto fue fantástico. El conductor era muy amable y servicial con las maletas y tal. Un fantástico lugar para alojarse!
Estaba limpio y era cómodo. Muy práctico para el aeropuerto con transporte. Restaurantes cerca.
El hotel era práctico para el aeropuerto, con un personal estupendo y un buen desayuno. La habitación estaba limpia y ordenada. Sin embargo, la ducha necesitaba una actualización y la alcachofa de la ducha no funcionaba correctamente.
Friendly staff. Window in room opened out to a hallway and not street.
Easy to drive to and free parking. Can walk to restaurants and shops. Great staff. Good breakfast. Refrigerator & safe in room. Very nice. Large rooms. Queen bed. Room next to a public space & below another room. Noisy at times. Early riser above us walked with heavy feet. No water pressure, unless you like cold showers.
Service was very accomodating. Wonderful people.
