Stayed here on our last night of a two week trip to CR, very close to airport. While there are chain airport hotels available, I can't think of a better way to end an amazing trip than staying at Casa Marin. Jody and her family welcomed us as if we were part of their family! Dolphin room was very comfortable... More

I planned my Costa Rica trip for months for myself and my son for over the Christmas holidays. Originally I'd planned to rent a car and drive...I'm so glad I didn't. Jody picked us up at the airport and right away I was comfortable and felt like I'd known her forever. She took us back to Casa Marin, and we... More

This may be the trickiest review I've written because it is not a review of the hotel per se, but a report of a situation involving it that may be of some use to others. When making plans and reservations for a place in another country where another language is spoken, misunderstandings can sometimes occur. I communicated via email very... More

Since I have received this review, I have considered what could have been done differently, to not have this occur again. When I was in communication with this gentleman about this potential reservation, I was out- of- town during the low season and we had a dialogue prior to my return home, afterwards no further communication. I get many emails... More

Jody's B&B is the perfect place to stay if you are flying in and out of San Jose or want a few nights in the city. It's a very short drive to the airport, is very comfortable and has the best host in Alajuela. My friends and I stayed at the beginning and end of our trip and we couldn't... More

We stayed 2 nights this November, to begin and end our trip to Costa Rica. We were so impressed with the service - we were picked up at the airport, given access to wifi on the drive home, then given a tour of Alajuela and taken to find a place for lunch by Julio. Jody made great breakfasts and even... More

This B & B exceeded our expectations. We were so well taken care. As soon as we arrived in San Jose airport Julio picked us up and offered to take us to a delicious local restaurant for lunch and around the town of Alajuela. Jody helped us pick up our rental car and gave us great directions to our next... More

This B&B 5 mins from the San Jose airport is a great place to stay on your way to and from other places in Costa Rica. Jody is so sweet and very caring, she drove me to and from tour pick ups and took great care of me and my friends while we were in Alajeula. Her place is comfortable... More

We have visited Costa Rica many times and never have we come across a more warm, generous and helpful lady, than Jody. From the time Jody and Julio met us at the airport, driving and staying with us during our dental appointment, which she set up for us in advance, we felt we were in the company of a caring... More

A warm welcome awaits you at this home from home bed and breakfast located just 15 minutes drive from San Jose international airport - an ideal location for those like us arriving late and travelling on. We were met by Julio at the airport and dropped back at the end - a free service. Located up a quiet road, with... More

We really enjoyed our 2 nights here. It was so easy being picked up from the airport especially when we were jet lagged! Jody made us feel very welcome. The Mermaid Cabina was just right and we even tried the pool the next morning before we ate our Costa Rican breakfast on the terrace. We had a night at the... More
