I fly out of San Jose, usually by myself. I don't want to do anything while I am there because I usually have to be at the airport by 4:30 a.m. The hotel where I use to stay always seemed inconvenienced by my wake up time and departure plus their prices kept getting higher and higher, not to mention that...

I booked this hotel because it was inexpensive and close to the airport for my morning flight. It exceeded expectations with nice clean rooms, a restaurant with good food, a pool, and Maria at the desk who made everything that much better with her smile and friendly helpful nature.

Positives: 5 minutes from the airport, free shuttle to the airport, You can arrange to drop off your rental car here (Adobe) so you don't need to hassle with it in the morning, free breakfast (we did not eat because we left early), staff was...

My wife and I arrived at the airport late in the evening so we wanted to stay somewhere close and inexpensive for our first night in Costa Rica. This hotel was perfect for what we needed. It was clean, safe, and inexpensive.

In order to avoid being a complete Negative Nancy let me try to think of a couple of positives....they offer free transport to the airport, very close, and the grounds are nice. The restaurant is also decent. Otherwise, yuck. The rooms are rundown, dingy and the smell like mildew. Everything just feels dirty from the little ant type bugs in... More

This hotel was surprisingly nice for the price, and the restaurant also surprisingly good (best cheescake I had the whole 2 weeks in Costa Rica). I tried to pull up directions to this place well in advance, both on maps and from their website, but despite having those in hand, and seeing the Billboard on the highway that said "2... More

I've stayed at this hotel 3 different times. I love that they pay for your transportation to and from the airport. Plus it is so close to the airport. On my most recent visit I had some logistical challenges that I was managing. The front desk staff was so helpful. The room are large and clean. I also enjoyed several... More

We just wanted to stay close to the airport to catch our flight early morning and did not want to spend a fortune for such "one night stand". The Hotel is about 20 years old but well kept. Beautiful gardens with lots of huge old trees and a great variation of tropical plants and flowers. The pool is small, but... More

The area around the hotel looks dangerous. The hotel room's door had a lot of movement in it and did not look very secure. The windows did not have locks on them. The wireless internet was not password protected and the outside area was darker than I would prefer. The sheets on the beds appeared to have been sleep in... More
