Bottom Line

The 134-room Sonesta El Olivar is a high-end choice in the upscale residential neighborhood of San Isidro. Aside from its safe, walkable location, the hotel stands out for its long list of on-site amenities: a fitness center, a salon, a business center with free coffee and cookies, a spacious rooftop pool, two tasty restaurants, and 24-hour room service. Rooms are large, with massive flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, minibars, and fresh flowers (a nice touch), but the beige-heavy decor -- with some dated furniture and sparsely adorned walls -- isn't as luxurious as one may expect from a four-pearl hotel.
