Carlos and his team are very welcoming. Make you feel at home, help you with all your questions and give very good advise. If you like a talk at breakfast, you'll feel right at home. Included breakfast was the tica way and very nice. Rooms were very clean. Safe available on request was really handy. Only 5min to the airport.... More

We stayed at Casa Tago for our very 1st night in Costa Rica. It is nicely located close to the airport and cost very little. We found the place very sad: agressive light, no windows (just one on the corridor), noisy. Impossible to close the door of the bathroom so when you need to us the toilets, it is not... More

We were welcomed at the airport with our name card and a friendly driver, Gracias Martial!. Umberto very nice, friendly a great sense of humor. The rooms are basic. Like all of Costa Rica, a hot water shower is rare, but no problem for me. There is a common refridgerator, and the breakfast is great ! Full service with a... More

This place is absolutely perfect if you're coming from or going to the airport. It's very close to the airport, as others have mentioned, and is in a nice neighborhood where there are lots of reasonable restaurants (and gas stations, if you have to return a rental car). The management was very nice and accommodating. The only negative is that... More

It was a recommendation of a (European) hotel owner in Costa Rica who stays at the Casa Tago herself when having a flight (back home). After my previous bad experience in Alajuela I was very satisfied with the place. Good value for your money. And a short and inexpensive taxi ride from the airport. I strongly recommend the hotel for... More

We spent our first night and the last 2 nights of our recent holiday to Costa Rica at Casa Tago. Not only is it close to the airport and to central Alajuela but Constanza and her staff go out of their way to help you either booking tours or giving restaurant recommendations. I'd highly recommend staying at this small family... More

A group of four of us crashed at Casa Tago the night before an early flight out. We arrived late and were warmly greeted. The staff guided us to a nearby restaurant for a late dinner and arranged a cab to pick us up the next morning. We were there for such a short time we didn't have the opportunity... More
