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

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our trip to Costa Rica and two nights at the end mostly because it was reasonably priced and fairly close to the airport. We ended up finding this place one of the best bargains in Costa Rica and a delightful place to relax for breakfast (buffet-style fruit, juice and toast,... More

The hotel is located in a residential part of Alajuele opposite to a small city park, 15 minutes from the International Airport of San José. Great for your first and last nights in Costa Rica. Inexpensive. Very friendly owners. Another way to see real Costa Rica. A place to meet Europeans either living in that country or coming there periodically.

This was a great budget choice for the first and last nights of our trip - when all you want to do is have a cold beer (only $1 from the fully stocked fridge!) and sleep on the first night and then be near the airport the night before you leave. I doubt you'd want to stay there for very... More

Hotel Coconut House is a great place to stay. They are so, so helpful and go out of their way to make sure you are well looked after. They will make all necessary arrangements for you and ensure you are aware of all you need to know while traveling in the country. The accommodations are great, clean and comfortable and... More

This was an excellent choice for us in Alajuela. The hotel is quiet and exceptionally clean. The price is reasonable and comes with a very nice selection for breakfast. It was very easy to take a bus into town and back to the Hotel. We had an afternoon flight out, so we were able to use the buses to easily... More
