This was the second year in a row that we have stayed here (for the first and last nights of our Costa Rica vacation) and we thoroughly enjoyed it once again. The landscaped gardens are beautiful, the pool is clean, cool, and refreshing, the cabins are quaint and comfortable, and the breakfasts and dinners are good. New cabins have been... More

For the last 5 years, we have stayed here when we have the need to be overnight near the airport...probably 7 times. This is a precious boutique hotel near the airport, but far enough away to not have any traffic from the highway or airplane noise. It has comfortable beds, clean rooms, beautiful well-kept gardens all around, a good buffet... More

Located in the sprawling city of Alajuela, it is a little garden of Eden. It has very well kept grounds and facilities. As many people have already mentioned, a perfect starting point and/or ending point for your vacation in Costa Rica. It's relative closeness to the airport makes it an ideal place. Not to be4 overlooked are some of the... More

Very good basic accommodation. Extremely convenient for the airport. Helpful reception staff. Early morning calls and take away breakfasts. Good food but struggled with service due to understaffing on the night we ate there.

We stayed here for a full day and night between arriving in San Jose and flying out to Drake Bay. It's very convenient ($15) from the airport and it's safe and peaceful with a pool and well kept gardens. Don't waste a day in San Jose! Stay here instead! A side note is that their restaurant is currently closed, but... More

My friend and I stayed 3 nights. The owners were there, we praised what they offered for the money. Everything was wonderfull , and pleasant, as was the service.

we stayed at this hotel last year and were happy to return again in February for a couple of days at the start of our trip. The breakfast area has been extended to provide an outdoor dining area which is very nice, and a few additional rooms have also been added since last year. The pool area is lovely, very... More

This is a really nice hotel in lovely grounds and very good if you are coming from or going to the airport. The room we had was recently refurbished and really nice and the staff couldn't have been more helpful.

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review of our hotel. We place a lot of effort in the quality of our grounds and we are proud of our location close to, but not excessively near the airport. The staff work very hard to meet the needs of our guests, and for an airport oriented hotel, this can... More

My husband and I stayed here after an overnight flight to San Jose. They arranged a taxi to pick us up at the airport and take us directly to the hotel. The taxi driver - Tony Jimenez (thru Easy Transfer) is one of the best drivers you could ever have in Costa Rica. He drove us to Poas Volcano for... More

Stayed here on my last night in CR. The hotel is about 15 minutes taxi ride (about $15) from the airport. The rooms are generous and very clean, the layout extremely well thought out - with plenty of places to hang/store things and really make yourself at home. The rooms are ground level, about 10 seconds walk from the pool... More

Repeat guests and guests who recommend our hotel to others without reservation are very important to us! Thank you for your comments. We do apologize for not being able to serve you supper upon your arrival. Many establishments in Costa Rica close at around 9 pm due to the local bus schedules. All our restaurant staff rely on the bus... More
