A Night at Parque Del Lago, San Jose, Costa Rica

Upon my recent arrival at the San Jose airport, I had the privilege of staying at the lovely Parque del Lago; a beautiful European style hotel with excellent Costa Rican hospitality. It is perfect for the business traveler or anyone wanting to stay close to the city. Parque del Lago is great choice for that first night of arrival or last night prior to departure. Just minutes from Teatro Nacional, Museo Nacional and the Gold Museum, there is a great variety of culture to discover in San Jose.

The feeling upon entering Parque del Lago is that of visiting a friend. The staff are extremely welcoming. The hotel feels safe, secure whilst retaining an artistic elegance.

Parque del Lago has several different room categories; 30 Standard Rooms with one King bed or two Queen beds.
6 connecting, Superior Rooms with one Queen bed and kitchenette, and 3 Junior Suites with a King bed, sofa and kitchenette.


All rooms are finished in dark woods and offer clean white duvets and marble showers. As an extra bonus, magnifying mirrors and extra large closets are provided.

The Restaurant, Iconos, serves a beautiful complimentary buffet breakfast from 6 am to 10 am for their hotel guests, a Business Lunch from 12 – 2 pm and enticing Dinners until 10 pm. The desserts are to rave about and the bar is very warm and comfortable.

Parque del Lago has a Conference Room available to guests as well as non guests for business meetings of up to 70 people. Coffee service and meals can be provided making your meetings complete and efficient offering a great location for people coming from all areas of the city.

There are 4 complimentary bikes available for exploring the city. Teatro de Nacional is fifteen minutes away and Central Market just ten.  La Sabana, one of the largest parks in the centre of San Jose is just a few mins walk away as well as being close to some great restaurants and bars.  International calls, Wi-Fi and parking are all complimentary.

Parque del Lago is great value for such a warm and inviting hotel in the centre of San Jose.
