My wife and I spent a night here before flying out of San Jose'. It was easy to get to by bus (just a 5 min ride). We had reserved a small room, but the owner said he had a last minute cancellation and upgraded us to a larger room at no additional charge. The room was sunny and very... More

We bargained for a price, but I think the standard was 40 USD$ for a great room with a HOT shower, first for many weeks! Breakfast of fruit, local coffee, toast and cereal was included and lots of it! The owner, Ramon was very relaxed about me carrying out a water pump overall repair on my bike. No under cover...

My stay at Villa Pacande was pleasant. Without a doubt what stood out was the hosts welcoming manner. They made me feel at home and had huge knowledge of the local area (gas, grocery, bank, restaurants) and had great recommendations for tourism (Volcan Poas, Strawberry Farms, Coffee Tours and the capital San Jose are less than 30mins away.) Their complimentary... More

I had a great time in Villa Pacande. The private room is very comfortable and clean. Hot water in the shower. The owner,Mark, is very kind and helped me in everything I needed. They provide free laundry service and have a nice breakfast. The price was also very reasonable. I highly recommend staying at Villa Pacande if you are around... More

Villa Pacandé is a very convenient place to stay in Alajuela. Simple, not too expensive, it is quiet and charming. Close to the airport, this bed and breakfast provides good services with helpful and nice people. I definitely recommend it !

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.
