Very nice hotel in general

I stayed in the hotel for three nights. It has a very good location, from the hotel to downtown it takes around 10 minutes. The bed is big and comfortable. My friends and I especially loved the outdoor jacuzzi next to the swimming pool. The hotel was a bit busy with an event, but the staff was still very helpful and friendly. Dinner at Denny's is always awesome. We had early morning breakfast and then left to the airport for our flight. We took their shuttle that leaves every hour, even the driver was very friendly. I defiantly will recommend this hotel to my friends and will come back on our next trip to Costa Rica.

worst denny's in the world

My stay started with a 30 minute wait to check in. Front desk incompetence. Then my room key did not work. So I had to go down to the front desk to get another. I went to the attached Denny's for something to eat. They asked if I had a meal coupon which I only had one that I was going to keep for breakfast. So I received the "pay yourself" menu. The prices were incredibly high. A grand slam was $15.00US. Steak and eggs were $30.00. So I ordered a small appetizer and a diet coke for $12.00. The next day I went down for my "free" breakfast. Completely different menu from the previous evening. I could have coffee or juice, but not both. I received one piece of bacon, one egg and hash browns that I could have cooked myself. I will never stay there again. I'll go down to the Sleep inn next time. John Rothwell

The staff was unfriendly and uncorporative. The internet was not working and even the hotel was empty they didnt care to give a better and decent room. Even I stayed in Best Western Jaco - the staff was very unfriendly and pathetic service.

  • Veronica G :
Beautiful stay

Great hotel!!! Friendly staff. I had a wonderful time at the hotel. I loved the gardens and pool. A definite plus! Very convenient to have a Dennys open 24 hours in case of early flight. Great service. Will be back next year!

  • Dennis O :
The best stay in San Jose

What a pleasure, this hotel has brought myself and my friends over the years. I have stayed here for 25 years everytime I visit Costa Rica. The rooms are great, clean, all the amenities and very reasonable in price. It has a gym, pool, bar, casino and business center. The best thing about the Irazu are the people. They are like family and even after I moved to Costa Rica, I keep coming back to the Irazu for a night's stay because I miss that family feeling. You meet people from around the world, and staff treat you like royalty.
