Had reserved somewhere else. Could never find it. Found Hotel Mango instead. Right next to Hampton House, Denny's, lots of places to eat. Not as expensive, but do offer a shuttle to airport ( so they say). Nice pool. Nice rooms, friendly staff. Safe place to leave your car. We were so happy to find it, with all of the... More

It was clean(ish), cheap and close to the airport. I can forgive the former's shortcomings in light of the latter - this was simply somewhere to lay my weary head for a few nights after exhausting days in the bush. Importantly it's a very short and reasonable cab ride from the airport - and that proximity mattered to me for... More

Last minute reservation due to flight cancellation. Arrived two am and departed 8 am. Although close to the airport and cheap cab ride the hotel didn't feel very safe. Flimsy doors and windows, dingy linens and minimal bathroom. Breakfast was blah. A place to rest our head and that's it. Staff is friendly enough.

I had a 5:40 am flight out of SJO, and wanted to be close as I needed to be at the airport around 3:30 am. A friend recommended this hotel. I was a little wary as the reviews are really mixed. I was pleased to find a secure, clean, adorable hotel, with helpful staff. My room was spotless, air conditioned... More

This hotel is well located if you want to be right at the airport door. You even feel like the plane are landing on your heads. I would not recommend it as a first choice and find it overrated. Would definitely not stay more than 1 night.

Stayed here on the spur of the moment. No breakfast was offered, things must've changed recently. No bar, either. We were able to obtain beers at the front desk.The place was clean, people friendly. The bed was terrible - saggy with an eggcrate mattress that did not help at all. The front desk lady was very helpful in providing us... More

We really liked this hotel, remodelled recently, very clean, ac, wifi pool tv and breaky. Only a stones throw from airport and reasonably priced. We would definitely stay again. Secure gated parking. Very friendly staff.
