I stayed here the night before my flight out of San Jose. It is a very peaceful place. The room was ok ..not the cleanest you would find but the reason I give it a 5 is because of the real value for your money and the helpfulness of host and owner Mark. He provides a free taxi to El... More

We made a reservation at Villa Pacande for the night we arrived in Costa Rica because it was close to the airport. We missed our flight in Atlanta because of weather so we called Marc at Villa Pacande and he made sure we had a room for the following night. Because of the flight situation, we did not have a...

I can highly recommend this beautiful house surrounded by lush nature and still so close to Alajuela and San Jose. Just around 10 Minutes away from the main airport, you are perfectly located to explore the area as well as Poas Volcano. Having been there already various times, it will always be my first choice when returning to San Jose.

We have been there for one week and it is really a place where you can feel like home. The owners are very nice people and helped us with everything. It is a little bit outside of Alajuela city, but that was exactly what we wanted. In the night you are away from the noisy city center and at daytime... More

I have to invite you to this place, It is located in a great place sorrounded by a green zone and full of paz.. close to Alajuela City, Poas Volcano, waterfalls, etc. I am very thankful, the service was great. And the price? waaooo so cheap! If you go to Costa Rica, you should have a night here.

After reading the previous reviews, we decided to have a look at this hotel, as most reviews were positive. The reviews about bad hygiene seemed older, so maybe things had changed or maybe the reviewers were there on a bad day... At first sight, the room seemed nice enough. So we dropped our bags and returned in the evening. When... More

The owners will do anything to make you feel comfortable and will anser all your questions. Breakfast is delicious and plenty and wonderfully set on the terrasse overlooking... More
