This place is a verdent oasis in the middle of a large city, and VERY close to the airport. Convenient and surprisingly peaceful! The lovely colonial architecture, leafy gardens, small pool, immaculate rooms, open air veranda for breakfast, and an incredibly helpful staff make this a place I would recommend highly for anyone.

This hotel is only two kilometers from the airport* in Alajuela but the ambiance makes one feel as though they are hours from the city. The hotel, restaurant, and pool are nestled amongst tall, verdant trees. Paths wind around the property providing relaxing areas to wander and watch for birds or admire the variety of flora.

Stayed here one night before a very early morning flight out. Room was fine, bathroom was more than fine with good shower. Grounds consist of a nice garden and plants and some wonderful old trees in the courtyard that are just huge with lots of character. Nice dinner served at night between 6 and 8 pm. Also if you get...

We loved this little hotel for our first and last nights in Costa Rica. The proprietors are charming and helpful, and the rooms were large, airy, and comfortable. The breakfasts were included in the price and were generous and tasty. We also had dinner both evenings were were traveling and found the meals to be quite good. There are both... More

We stayed only one night in this hotel, just before our flight back to Europe. I suppose this is what most of their guests do: just spend the night before or after their round trip through Costa Rica. Reception on arrival was friendly and professional. The formalities were quickly dealt with and the owner / receptionist accompanied us to our... More

Great little hotel for relaxing after coming in from a flight or about to leave for one, Pretty gardens and a nice pool. Rooms are very large and comfortable with cable tv and balconies. The hotel includes breakfast and they can arrange a ride to the airport for a few dollars. They can also do evening meals if you order... More

This was a very comfortable, relaxing older place, away from the noise of the city but close to the airport. There was a cab waiting for us when we arrived even though the flight was almost 3 hours late. Clean and comfortable rooms. The breakfast was included, eating outdoors in a covered patio overlooking the gardens and pool. Dinner was... More

If you are looking for a convenient location near airport for one night, this will work. Rooms are simple, but dusty, old blankets and creaky mattress. Grounds are great for a bit of a stroll among the tropical fruit trees, but in poor neglect. Pool needs remodeling for sure and was dirty and unsanitary (we are from Florida, with a... More

Close to SJO airport in Costa Rica. Large rooms, pool, OK breakfast, but the best was the birds. There was a stream next to the Inn and it attracted wildlife and lots of birds. This is the most birds I have seen in one place in all of Costa Rica, where you could actually hear and see them. There were... More

This place is close to the airport but feels far away. Yes, you can hear the planes, but you also hear all the birds and cicadas. Food was perfectly serviceable, and the hospitality was great--we arrived really late at night and the night-host got us settled, brought us a beer and a glass of wine, and the front desk arranged...
