    1. Food during a breakfast was not delicious. 2. They gave only 1 shampoo, 1 conditioner for 2 people for 2 days. 3. A swimming pool and Jacuzzi too cold for swimming.

    It was very cold in our room and not possible to get some heat, so it was really cold to stay there.

    Staff was friendly.

    When I arrived in the evening the power was out, so no lights and no one to me park the car and help with bags up front. When I checked in the bell bow helped me through the dark with a flash light, but got confused with the room he was taking me too so it took a while. The ac was inconsistent and blew hot air for hours at a time. I had bitten by mites in one bed so I transferred to another.When I had breakfast in the morning I was asked to sit in the corner and rushed through eating so they could close the breakfast buffet.

    The hotel was incredibly clean and pretty. I enjoyed the gym and the pool. It really is a gorgeous hotel for business travelers.

    I had hoped that I could walk around the area from the hotel. But, the area turned out to be neither pretty nor safe. Consequently, I was stuck in the hotel with cabs taking me around. San Jose is not where travellers (aside from business travellers) should go. Skip San Jose. Seriously.Take a flight directly from SJO to one of the more scenic areas in the country. The food and drinks at the hotel were overpriced for the area. A waterbottle was $4 (where it is $1.50 or $2 elsewhere). The breakfast buffet, which was not included, was $18 and pretty basic. Breakfasts come with most other hotels in the area. I would recommend La Grand Oro in San Jose over this hotel. La Grand Oro is $50-75 more. Also, the Radisson's maids (for some reason) kept coming into the room despite the "Do Not Enter" sign on the doorknob. I asked what they needed (in Spanish) but received no reply.

    Beautiful private oasis right in the middle of San Jose. The pools and gardens are wonderful and the rooms were reasonable and more comfortable than we expected. One morning alot was going on in the lobby and I told one of the staff (Edgar) that we were waiting for our rental car person. He found him and brought him over to us which saved us precious time. Don't miss the breakfast it was a great way to start the day.

    The Radisson was perfect for us, but I would not drive in San Jose if you can avoid it. I'm serious. This is as bad as it gets. You cannot prepare for the traffic. The dental clinic we were visiting picked us up and brought us back.

    Same food in snack bar every day, recepsionist girl who is bargaining with customers, and Hotel's location.

    Reasonable location. Great bed. Staff responded promptly to emails about making some arrangements for us.

    Staff messed up our trip to Jaco - indicated a later time than the actual pick-up, resulting in an hour's loss of sleep.
