    I liked that they built some quiet and privacy at the hotel in a busy part of the city/highway by putting all the gardens and pool/jacuzzi on the interior courtyard. The pool, gardens, hot tub and landscaping were gorgeous. The staff was very friendly, patient, pleasant and helpful. The free happy hour at the casino bar was great. My boyfriend and I had good conversation with the bartender Ruben. We also appreciated William at the reception desk. He was very pleasant. I thought the hot tub was very nice, large, awesome, open late. We were happy to order Denny's for room service. The room was modern and clean. The pool was beautiful. The grounds were immaculate. They offered a free airport shuttle every 20 minutes which was convenient for our last night stay in Costa Rica. We only used the room as our departing room.

    I didn't like that you aren't allowed in the pool after 6pm. I woke up with several bug bites, so did my boyfriend (although we never saw any bugs). The complimentary breakfast ruined my stay! You can choose from five selections. Four of the five selections offers tea or coffee, plus juice. I just so happened to want to eat comida tipico, and no juice is offered for that selection. I don't drink tea or coffee, and I had drunk alcohol the night before and really wanted a refreshing glass of juice (which is included in four of the five meals). I said can I just have juice instead of tea? Since it is included with the other meals in addition to endless cups of coffee or tea in the other selections. They said no. I would have to pay. Ridiculous. Why not accommodate the the thirsty guest? It's free in the other meals. I made a fuss. Why worry about saving 30 cents on a glass of juice if it means you lose a $113 future guest? Absurd.

    Free international calls!!!

    They don t bring you from the airport every 20 min as promised. I was waiting for 2 hours, and the shuttle bus didn t come at all so I had to take a taxi loosing money and time! They also charge you for everything- adapters and so on. They take an extra credit money from you and I still didn t get it back. They didn t give you all the services as promissed on the web-site- no flat tv, no tea set, no dressing gown. The room is very small still I ordered Premier room.

    The staff was amazing, and the hotel had all of the amenities I could ask for. It had a free shuttle from the airport and a free happy hour. There was a Denny's attached, as well as a casino. There was an awesome buffet across the street, as well as a Subway. There was a grocery store around the corner and a lovely, well-maintained pool and jacuzzi. The gym was great, and the spa was reasonably priced. We loved this hotel and hope to return shortly. :-)

    It is nice hotel, friendly staff, nice Casino that opens until 05:00 (great if you have jetlag), free internet and free calls, clean and free shuttle. The breakfast served in Dannys restaurant – so the food is Dannys style (served from 4:00). For the price it is great hotel. Noticed – no smoking in Hotel you need to go to the parking lot.

    Nice environment, attractive, clean. Free shuttle to airport. Breakfast included.

    I forgot a good pair of women's navy blue pants on Dec. 28. I then contacted the hotel, and got a response from Norma Sanahuja, stating she'd look into it and get back to me. She never did. When I returned to the Irazu on Jan 2, I asked again. It appears the pants have disappeared. I can't believe it is impossible for hotel cleaning staff to hold lost items for guests, especially when those guests have a reservation to stay at the hotel within days. Also, the person at the desk when we arrived the 2nd time, Jennifer, is quite curt and unpardonable; only friendly people who can show they care about clients should be permitted to work at the reception desk.
