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.

You would drive right on by, but don't. Once inside the gate you will be met with a lovely environment of semi-detached bungalows, great staff, included breakfast, nice pool area, and the ever present watchdog Oscar. He will bark at you when he first sees you but will soon be your best friend. We had the 2 bedroom, 2 bath... More

We had a delayed flight and had to change our hotel, so I made a last minute reservation here for a very late arrival. They greeted us for our late arrival. The room was cute and nicely decorated. We had problems getting the AC to stay on, but I think that was error on our part from being so tired... More

I am staying here overnight to catch a flight in the morning. The grounds are very attractive, and the front desk/dining area is extremely clean and welcoming. The guys working are very helpful. And the resident dog is so sweet. I was having a terrible day, and he immediately hopped on my lap and curled up to cuddle. He knew... More

I booked at Hotel Villa Dolce last minute because my flight out of San Jose was delayed due to a volcano eruption. I ended up needing a room for 3 nights due to airport closure and re-routing of flights. First of all, let me say that I was NOT impressed that I had to stay in San Jose area for... More

The owners and staff were wonderful and went out of their way to assist me. The 1 bedroom suite was spacious and having the kitchen allowed me to relax and have a meal when I wanted one. Truly a great value. Bob from Canada

A perfect place to stay after a long trip from Canada to Costa Rica. Incredibly close to the San Jose Airport making for a smooth transition from travelling to relaxation (Hotel will arrange a safe and affordable shuttle to and from the airport). The owners and staff of Hotel Villa Dolce went above and beyond to create a perfect start... More

Hello: You have so many choices when it comes to hotels near SJO. Whether you are landing late and need to stay over night before heading off on your adventures, or have an early flight and don't feel like rushing first thing in the morning to get to the airport on time. This hotel was a total fluke for me.... More

We had a wonderful 2 night stay here. The rooms may seem a little "dated" in terms of decor. But don't let that hold you back from booking. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were very clean. We had a delicious breakfast included with our stay. And the pool area was well maintained. At first approach,... More
