We walked into this hotel on our way out of Costa Rica (last night before catching an early flight). They offered a cash discount, lovely outdoor -poolside restuarant on-site (food was a little pricey), and clean rooms. Free internet service, friendly English-speaking staff, and free service to shuttle in private vehicle. The price we got was $50 USD less than... More

After arriving in Costa Rica, we wanted a hotel close to the airport and one that is an Interbus (shuttle) stop. We took a taxi to Hotel Mango because there is no convenient hotel transportation from airport as described on website. ("All Amenities of a modern Hotel - Local calls at no charge. Free transportation airport-hotel and vice versa, Swimming... More

We were very disappointed in this hotel. The price was top dollar for 2* comfort. The beds were terrible...ie you could feel all the springs in the mattress, the water temp was unreliable in the shower, and the continental breakfast was a joke... a few pieces for fruit and one slice of white toast...coffee. they do have shuttle service to...

On March 30th, 2008, I stayed for one night at the Hotel Mango located by Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose, Costa Rica before catching a flight to Miami early the next day. Hotel Mango charged me 461,100.00 CRC or $955.55 USD rather than 46,110.00 CRC or $95.55 for one night!! I did not catch the extra zeros added... More

We arrived to an alarmingly higher rate than quoted. The person at the front counter was LESS THAN FRIENDLY. When asked for information or directions, acted bothered. The restaurant was impolite and slow to serve a lone diner! The rooms are ordinary, with very hard beds. In 2002 this was one of my favorite places to stay, in 2008 you... More

Hotel Mango charged my CC prior to arrival and then when I arrived forced me to pay again. I informed the clerk that I had already paid but he would not give us a room unless we paid again. I have since tried to contact the manager multiple times via phone and email and have been ignored every time. The... More

This hotel is located directly under the airport runway, and right next to a major highway. Do not expect a quiet night. Rooms are sparse but clean. Bathroom smelled of septic gas, and developed a water leak from ceiling overnight, soaking everything. Beds HARD. Noise transmits from room to room, and along the hallways, so take ear plugs. Nice restaurant,... More
