We only stayed for one night at this small hotel which we had to book at the last minute. The standard of presentation of the accommodation and grounds was very good and the staff most welcoming and helpful. Breakfast served in the little restaurant was freshly prepared and delicious. Although it is situated on a busy road, the noise did... More

We recently stayed at this wonderful hotel en route to our longer stay in Puerto Viejo. The hotel was lovely, and what shined the most was the heart-centered staff who truly cared. I would highly recommend the hotel for anyone looking for a great stay close to the airport, but with a quiet, welcoming smaller town feel.

We flew into San Jose and chose this hotel to start and end the trip since it was close to the airport and they provided free shuttle to and from the airport and free breakfast. Once leaving the airport baggage claim we had to ask where Malinche Restaurant was because that is where they picked us up. We had to... More

Dear BandBinPA, Thank you for taking some time and write a review for us. We are very glad that your experience in our hotel was pleasant. Just to clarify to other travelers that read this review: our small circular swimming pool is a children's pool, not a hot tub. As some other reviewers have let us know that a hot... More

We chose this hotel because it lies to the West of the airport and we wanted to start driving in CR without having to negotiate San Jose or heavily trafficked roads. Also, we had to head west so it was well situated. It is on a fairly busy local urban road and the occasional roars of noisy motorbikes could penetrate... More

Pnbfried, Thank you for such a nice review, we are very glad to know that your experience in our hotel was very good. As mentioned, when you are visiting the Pacific slope, Arenal Volcano or Monteverde for example, is much better to stay out of the city area, and ofcourse if you stay with us you will have access to...

We stayed two nights before an early morning flight back home. Two nights so we could meet up with local friends and enjoy a trip to Cartago before our departure. The gated hotel provided all the services needed to make our stay comfortable as we braced ourselves to rejoin the USA rat race. The room was quiet. It would have... More

We chose this hotel a bit last minute based on how close it was to the airport. We booked online with no issues. We were happy with our choice. Although not really fancy, we liked how small it was and enjoyed the pool and a quiet supper on site. We liked the small quaint size. It had a more local... More

We stayed here one night before going home. We were the only guests at the hotel and so well taken care of. Not a place you wanna stay for more than a night though more because its in the middle of town. The room was simple, clean and had everything you needed. The restaurant serves simple, good costa rican food.... More

Dear Louise, Thank you for your good comments! We are glad you had a nice stay. While most part of our guests stay for one or two nights on the arrival or departure from Costa Rica, there are also a good part that stays longer. We are very close to the airport (10 min) but also people can stay for... More

We stayed here mainly because of its location, close to the airport with a free shuttle. We arrived around 2pm from Jaco, hungry from having skipped lunch, and were unhappy to discover the restaurant didn't open until 6pm. The owner/manager soon offered to have his wife cook a late lunch/early dinner for us, charging a very reasonable $12per person. The... More

Emmanuel picked us up at airport right on time, much appreciated when arriving at 10:45 pm. On arrival he offered beer, soda, water even though everything was of course closed for the night. Comfortable, very basic room. Nice breakfast self serve in beautiful garden setting. Emmanuel drove us as requested to car rental agency in morning,

Wow- a tropical pleasure in the middle of the city, close to airport. Emmanuel and staff were very accommodating. Family run business and meet most, including the Father. Dinner was staged outside among palms and orchids. Dinner was great, we ordered another steak to split. Breakfast was put out, self serve style, bread, fruit, with delicious blackberry juice. Rooms were... More
