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.

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
