We love our stays with Heike and Reiner. Heike is extremely helpful and Reiner can be seen most afternoons resting in his hammock waiting for guests to arrive. The hotel is extremely clean and well maintained. Breakfast with homemade bread provides a perfect start to the day. The bus line to downtown Alajuela is just around the corner, MegaSuper with...

This was the 2d place we stayed in Alajuela on our Costa Rica vacation and we were happy to find Heike & Reiner. Great little place, clean and basic, with plenty of attractive outdoor patio space and a nice neighborhood for strolling after a long car or plane ride. Reiner was kind enough to let us brew up some tea... More

This was a clean, safe and quiet place to stay near the airport. The room was basic but that's all we needed for a short stay before our flight. I cant tell you what breakfast was like because we left very early. Taxi ride to airport was about $8. The host was helpful. It was a pleasant stay for us.

We stayed already a couple of times with Heike & Reiner and can highly recommend their place to everyone! Its a cute and clean hotel, very close to the aiport (~10 min by taxi) and the rates are absolutely fair. The rooms are equipped with basic needs, overhead ventilators and private or common bathroom. It is located quietly within a... More

We stayed here in March and then again in April 2011. It is a short taxi ride from the airport and nothing is too much trouble for the owners - so friendly and helpful. My wife had to fly home after two weeks in Costa Rica so I travelled up to Nicaragua on local buses and Heiki's knowledge of the... More

Over some years I stayed there a couple of times & it was always a pleasure. Friendly, helpful owners Heike & Rainer run a cozy place with very nice, clean rooms and are open for any questions about the country. A very quiet location. Great breakfast-buffett. Rainer bakes his own bread! I can recommend Coconut House to everyone.

We used Coconut House for 4 weeks as our base for going off and exploring different parts of the country, and as on a couple of occasions we had weight restrictions on domestic flights we very much appreciated being able to leave part of our luggage at the hotel. The owners Heike and Reiner are German, but both speak English... More

Heike the owner was so helpful and accommodating. I had planned on staying there with just my husband but due to flight cancellations my sister was with us also. At the last minute Heike was able to rearrange and accommodate all of us. The hotel is great a short stay when going or coming from the airport.

My wife and I have stayed in this hotel twice. It is a great place when you have an early flight out of, or late flight into, C.R. It is a 10 minute, $6 taxi ride from the airport. Breakfast is included, & dinners can be ordered for $10. The hotel is clean, secure and very quiet. The German owner... More

We stayed here the night before our morning flight home from San Jose. It was small but clean and comfortable. Theres nothing much more special about it than that. It was basic and convenient for 1 night, but I wouldnt have liked to stay here as part of a longer holiday. When we got up early for our flight, the... More
