We stayed the day we arrived and the night before we left. Super convenient. They provide shuttle service too. Not really any reason to stay here otherwise unless you want to drive places since there is nothing else in the neighborhood to walk to. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and quiet. Grounds are pretty. Restaurant and bar. Wireless, in-room TV and... More

We read the reviews and decided that for one night it would be fine--and it was. We arrived early evening, asked for a quiet room and were put on the first floor in the last room at the end of the hallway. It had a tiled floor, clean beds, older bathroom with a funky raised tub, good water pressure and... More

1. This hotel appears to be writing its own highly detailed reviews about what a "pleasant" and "helpful" facility they are in order to combat some very honest and negative recent reviews. 2. Facilities are satisfactory for a lackluster, budget airport hotel. 3. Our family camera & I pod disappeared from the premises while we are at dinner. The staff... More

Lovely location set amidst mature tropical trees and plants. Mature mango trees highlighted the well tended grounds. There were many birds nesting which contributed to a natural park like setting. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable with fine amenities. The staff were professional and helpful. Free shuttle to airport was a plus. This is a nice starting or ending... More

This is a family operated hotel close to the airport in Alajuela. I prefer to stay in hotels that are actually run by people in that country. This is not a US chain hotel. If you are looking for a US hotel chain, stay in the US. This hotel is an older hotel with recent upgrades to the restaurant. I... More

I stayed overnight due to an early flight back to Canada. Extremely clean and comfortable. The restaurant chef really puts a fantastic meal together. Excellent menu choices and nicely prepared. Use the orange taxi service from the airport as this hotel picks up the tab. They will also arrange a free shuttle to the airport. Highly recommend this hotel....next time... More

This place seemed the best of our options based on pricing and reviews. I will say, it was very close the the airport, and it only took the shuttle they provide, 6 mintues to get there. The shuttle runs every half an hour, which is great. The restaurant that is attached to the hotel is FANTASTIC. It had some of... More

We travel a lot and this was our second time in Costa Rica. This hotel was terrible. The rooms (we switched rooms) smelled very bad, the tub was rusty and dirty, we had a safe in the room very rusty. The pictures on the site are very misleading. Internet only works if you are in the lobby not in the... More

We stayed here at the end of a long day of traveling. It was great to be able to just grab a cab, not have to haggle for the price, just sit back and be delivered to the hotel. It was close to the airport so it wasn't a long ride. The neighbor would not be good for walking around... More

very nice staff but overall this hotel was sketchy. worth paying a little more to stay in a chain hotel closer to the airport. Hotel was very hard to find. Room was not as nice as the photos on the website; ugly, dirty, old red carpet; bathroom smelled of mildew; found someone else's lingerie in the nightstand.
