We arrived one afternoon. Tired from our travels from Santa Teresa. The girl at the front desk was very disorganized and she made a funny face when she realized two guys were request a king sized bed. Immediately, we pretended that there was a misunderstanding so my partner and I decided to get a room with two twin beds. We... More

Excellent location close to San Jose airport. Safe, clean and good sized rooms. The service we got from David (staff member) was excellent, very friendly and helpful. The owners are Italian and English so a good range of languages spoken and both are very charming and helpful.

We stayed here upon a really late arrival from the airport and had a shuttle waiting for us that I pre-arranged by email. It took only about 10 minutes for us to be dropped off and the cost was $20 for both of us. David greeted us and took us to our room which was spotlessly clean and spacious. There... More

We stayed here for our first night in Costa Rica before heading out on the road to begin our trip. The hotel was really clean, and the front desk staff (forget his name) was really friendly and helpful. The hotels location isn't ideal as it is close to the #1 highway, and feels like it is in a poor area... More

We've stayed with Hotel Villa Dolce four or five times as our airport transfer stop in San Jose when we visit beautiful Costa Rica. The location is convenient to the airport and highways to the Pacific beaches. The owners, who live on premises, and their staff are courteous, friendly and helpful, and on our last few visits went out of... More

Rooms are clean but not very modern. The garden area is very nice and in good shape. Nevertheless there were several downsides: We were asked weeks in advance if we wanted to get picked up at the airport. Since we arrived late at night we said yes and got that confirmed. When we arrived at the airport there was no... More

Its clean a somewhat nice with the pool. Neither expensive nor really cheap (middle range pricing). I was disappointed because I expected something else from an airport hotel. Why? Well, I paid almost the same price to go by cap to the airport as I paid for the shuttle service from the airport to San Jose. It might take a... More

We stayed a Villa Dolce a few times as we travelled round Costa Rica this summer - to start with because it was close to the airport but after our first night and the welcome and helpfulness of the owners we returned because it felt like a home from home. The rooms are extremely spacious, clean and comfortable, the pool... More

Best option in Alajuela close to airport. Quiet and secluded. Family owned and operated. Great quality for the price. Nothing but praise from one hotel owner to another. I spent 3 pleasurable nights there and would gladly stay there in the future.
