    Colours Oasis Resort hotel in San Jose, Costa Rica
    This is a wonderful hotel in San Jose, Costa Rica. All the staff are very helpful and friendly. They will also schedule you for tourist outings. They will also pick you up at the airport and transport you back to the airport when you are ready to leave Costa Rica.

    decay all over
    It is not a gym it's a gay bathhouse Actually the first to open in COSTA RICA . It was out shined by SAUNA HISPALIS . It's been going downhill thru the years from a nice place to a shady nasty place the steam room is not working anymore , the rooms are free but you can see the decay all around the place.The clientele is much to be desire middle age guys in the worst physical condition , young guys some of them cute ,hooking up with the out of shape guys if you are Caucasian those young guys will flock towards you but in all honesty the place is just in decay all around you are better off going to HISPALIS This sauna opens at noon and closes around 8pm . There is a black curtain at the entrance then press a button and they will let you in .The charge is 3000 colones they'll give a key to a locker and sandals .The showers works and they are always cleaning the floor and everywhere else , no smoking.Overall can't imagine any tourist going there for a good time. Years ago when started yes but now I can't see it.
