  • We enjoyed the dancers and the food was good but not great. Our main issue was with the van driver who was horrible! He drove like a maniac, constantly put us in dangerous situations. We also arrived late so that we were very rushed to eat. Lastly, the host for the evening was condescending....maybe he was just having a bad day but for 140 we expected better.

  • This was dreadful. THREE hours on a bus to arrive at a 2-hour canned performance, part of which was watching people get pictures taken with the dancers. Then over another hour to get home. Too many companies involved so the bus companies and Viator were out of sync. The worst.

  • Your vans are terrible. We were picked up at 5:45 pm and it took 2 1/2 hours to meet the other van then another 45 to get to the restaurant . The food was cold and very mediocre. I have had a knee replacement had to climb about 45 slick steps. Was not asked if I had a problem with motion.

  • In San Jose traffic it takes about an hour to get there. Our tour guide on the bus was excellent. Show beautifully done. Food was not outstanding, but very good for a buffet. The view was fantastic. Enjoyed every minute of it. At 70.00/person, it was a bargain. Food, drinks, a show,, fantastic view and round trip transportation with a very knowledgeable guide.

  • The only good thing about this place is the view of the city, other than that it was terrible: bad food both not tasty and not fresh, horrible tiny bathrooms and on top of that when you sit on a toilet your entire head is visible above the tiny stall door. overpriced, takes about an hour to get to this place from San Jose, the dancing show was a joke 20 minutes of amateurs. Stay away from this place.

  • We really enjoyed the food and the entertainment.
    Everyone in our group were expecting fireworks to top off the night per the description in Viator. I would recommend that they change the wording to say that the fireworks are an extra that is not guaranteed or not mention them at all then if they do have them its a nice surprise. I'm not sure how they should word it, but the way it states it on the site right now you expect a firework show to top off the evening and they did not have any which was a disappointment to the group I was with.

  • Nice dinner, free beer.

  • We had a great time. The view is marvelous and the dancers very exciting and colorful. The buffet, drinks and restaurant décor were awesome. The staff very friendly and accommodating. A fun time.

  • Nice bus ride from hotel. Great food and entertainment. Recommend it for all those that are traveling to San Jose Costa Rica

  • It was a pleasant experience. I do think that couples should be given the opportunity of dining at their own table and not be responsible for offering hospitality to clients travelling alone. It so happened that the guy who was placed at out table was pleasant but rather controlled our conversation with his constant talking.
