No record of our booking and no cars available!Pros:NothingCons:Everything . We had paid £100 prior to leaving the UK and when we arrived at the car hire offices they had no record of our booking and no vehicles available. We will now be pursuing a clsim for reimbursment of the money paid in advance.Reviewed 13 Dec. 2018

Cons:we had to pay 600 $ more for the insurance that what mandatory even if it was not indicated on the contract made with you we tried to negotiate with the car rental office but they would give us the car unless we paid for the insurance finally the final price went up to 999$ instead of 324$ if with the insurance of our american express card and even if we had accepted your insurance the car company argued it was a government which had to apply we ask you for the refund of half of this overchargeReviewed 4 Jan. 2019

Cons:Better disclosure regarding mandatory LDW rates in Costa Rica and/or offerings of affordable local car insurance.Reviewed 1 Apr. 2019
review fromkayak
Pros:NothingCons:I have a printed confirmation from you for $110.00. In fairness it does read estimated taxes and fees $57.12. Confirmation # CRF8702737. After paying for a shuttle to the isolated offsite I was told the rental was $450.00 no negotiation and he kept pointing to the estimated taxes and fees. Extremely deceptive business practice. While Adolfo in customer service was very good and resolved my issue I would highly reccomend these deceptive business practices and disclose to your customers what the actual fees will really be.Reviewed 5 Nov. 2019

Quotes online are completely wrong, did not accept prepaid insurance .Pros:Nothing i liked. It is all false advertisement.Cons:Everything! Raising prices exponentially upon arrival, cornering clients into purchasing additional insurance and requiring thousands of dollRs in deposit that would lock up fund vacations, issuing a car bellow level requested online that was dented, seats torn. Not accepting conditions agreed upon onlineReviewed 18 Apr. 2017

Bad car and price was almost tripledCons:Price is tripled when you arrive to rent it. They lie about the priceReviewed 24 Mar. 2017

AvoidCons:The SUV that I reserved was not available. I flew all the way from the states with a surfboard and they couldn't provide the vehicle I reserved to fit my board. The service team did not show any remorse. They offered to pull up a standard car to see if the board would fit. We waited 30 minutes for this occur before we left and rented from another company. From my research, this happens quite often. I suggest spending the additional money and renting somewhere else.Reviewed 4 Jan. 2017

Car almost made me miss my flight.Cons:The car wouldn't start and we were three hours away. The only options the rental agency gave us was to find someone to jump our car or pay for our own way to the airport. They didn't seem sympathetic at all. And they tried to make us pay for gas because we didnt have time to fill up the tank on account of the car not starting.Reviewed 20 Apr. 2017

Pros:They did finally change the car for us after telling us previously there weren’t any other cars.Cons:When we were quoted for the price it was $34 total for 6 days. However, when we arrived we were told there was an obligatory insurance we needed to get (in-spite of my credit card having an international plan). The price quickly changes from the quoted $34 dollars (which supposedly included taxes and fees) to $300. We ended up paying an extra $50 more for the full insurance (since we were worried what they would try to charge us for if anything at all happened) so it came to $350. When we asked why it changed so drastically they said that it was because of the extra fees and taxes (which the website had said were included.) I had originally picked a Jeep but the confirmation email was for an SUV instead (So that was strange). When we got the Jeep it had no gps or even a usb charging port . When we asked about this the man told us he should go by Walmart in order to get one for the car. When we complained he said that they didn’t have any other cars and then finally offered us a carport charger that he had that we could borrow. When we left the seatbelt light turned on and wouldn’t stop beeping (even though we had our seatbelts on.) finally we had to turn around and return the car. We also realized there wasn’t even a middle seatbelt in the back of the car. They miraculously had a different car for us then. Overall- not a good experience. Would NOT recommend. We do speak Spanish as well fluently so it wasn’t like anything but was “lost in translation.”Reviewed 30 Nov. 2019

Pros:Friendly staff, clean place, great serviceCons:The car was advertised as $50 for an entire week, but once you get in there to pick up the car there’s a required, minimum $300 insurance. Would have been nice to know that up front. Also, the Ace logo is very hard to spot on the van, as it’s a shared van with GreenMotionReviewed 12 Feb. 2019

Pros:Louis greeted us at the desk-he was so HELPFUL, giving us wifi trying to call our hotel and calling a taxi for us. This might sound as if it was easy to help but there seemed to be a problem in every situation. He kept a smile and just kept helping us!!!! Did I mention we were very late because of traffic? We felt very comfortable with him and we feel his customer service was A+5star. Thank you. Car was clean and efficient. Return was smooth ,we had to call because we were going to be over an hour late(nearly 2,after traffic), and there was no problem.Reviewed 21 Feb. 2017
