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.

I'm not sure about all the terrible ratings of this hotel, it's certainly not a 5 star experience but our room, #9, was clean, everything worked correctly, and the restaurant served a decent complimentary breakfast. Hotel Mango is located under the flight path of SJO so it's a bit noisy at times, but so are all the other hotels located... More

Close proximity to SJO, but our 4:30am wake up call never came. Being so close to the airport, one would think the staff would be more attentive to the early departures. Security guard showed us the paper where the wake up call was written down, then refused to open the gate until I returned the room key, even though I... More

We spent one night (which was one night too many) at this hotel. We almost left as soon as we walked in but since we paid for reservations and were only there for 8 hours before our early flight, we stuck it out. Old & creepy is the best way to describe this dimly lit, shady place. My kids were... More

After flying all night we were given a nice clean room at 7AM for the cost of our 1 night stay and offered a tasty Costa Rican breakfast too! The hotel is smaller but has a nice courtyard, pool and indoor/outdoor dining. Outside perimeter walls on the property, locked entrance gate and inside door access to the rooms made us... More
