George is a great, laid-back host! He made us feel right at home upon arriving. He went out of his way to make sure the wi-fi worked for a friend and the hot showers were the hottest in all of Costa Rica. My favorite part was waking up to fresh coffee, fritattas, juice, and plenty of fruit! Would recommend if... More

We stayed here with my parents for a couple days when we first got to Costa Rica and took a day trip out to La Paz Waterfall Gardens. George is a wonderful host who cooks outstanding breakfasts (frittata, tropical fruit, banana bread, coffee, and juice, for example), suggested a great place for lunch on the way back from La Paz...

We stayed for three nights at Alegria on our recent trip to Costa Rica and felt very welcome there. It was lovely to come from a rather damp couple of days in La Fortuna to a place where we could not only dry off properly but really make ourselves at home. George was a perfect host, helping us out with... More

As others have said, Alegria is a true B&B with just three guest rooms and a very warm, friendly and helpful host, George. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just a 10-15 minute walk from the city center and a 10 minute ($5) taxi ride from the airport. My wife and I found Alegria to be a very... More

We just wrapped up a very comfy one night stay at George's place before heading back home to the states. George is a very lovely host and his home is very comfortable, with lots of cozy places to sit and read, hang out or or watch tv. The showers are hot and powerful, a rare find in Central America.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing stay at George's bed and breakfast. He went out of his way to make sure we were settled and had everything we needed. His home is gorgeous and very comfortable- lots of privacy if you want it but he's also around to answer any questions you might have. The breakfast he provided was... More
