“Loved Casa Alegre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2006

Planning on spending some time in San Jose, Costa Rica? Then Hotel Casa Alegre is the best place for a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere at an affordable price. Casa Alegre has been recently remodeled and the rooms are beautiful. With only 7 rooms, it has the comfortable atmosphere of a bed and breakfast, yet the privacy of a hotel. Breakfast is a full breakfast, not just coffee and toast! It is close enough (about 15 minutes) to the airport and downtown San Jose, yet far enough away from all the traffic and noise. The hosts are gracious, friendly and helpful. The pool area is a great place to hang out. I highly recommend staying at Casa Alegre while in San Jose. I travel to Costa Rica frequently, always stay there and have never been disappointed.

Stayed September 2006

I stayed at Casa Alegre last May with two girlfriends and we couldn't have had a better time!! Upon entering the gated yard we immediately felt safe and totally comfortable. It was like visiting the house of a relative. The Santa Fe decor is warm and inviting and the communal lounge is tastefully accented with interesting decorations and great sunny windows.

The pool and garden area is nice and clean - very refreshing in the late afternoon sun. It's decorated with fantastic tiled mosaics of Kokopeli (a Hopi Indian Legend representing happiness) and other New Mexican influences.

The rooms themselves are awesome!! Big and spacious with bilingual T V, ceiling fans, custom-made beds and tables and beautifully tiled large bathrooms. At sunrise coffee and fresh baked goodies are served outside your room and at your convenience a choice of breakfasts are offered over-looking the pool. The friendly kitchen staff prepare your food as it's ordered so it's cooked fresh and just the way you want it.

All the staff at Casa Alegre went above and beyond to deliver a truly pleasurable experience, whether arranging a taxi, a white water rafting trip, a coffee plantation tour, or recommending a good local watering hole (a mere 2 minute walk away). They were always available with a big smile and helpful advice.

We also had the pleasure of meeting the owners, Greg and Alejandra who are a lovely couple eager to make sure your visit to Costa Rica is the best it could be. You can tell they are genuinely happy to have you stay at their establishment. All in all, our stay was awesome, we could not have been happier and we will definitly return - probably this January!!!
