We stay one night in Hotel Cortez Azul. As the fridge did look terrible and the door did not lock, the spanish owner promised us his second hotel Villa Pacande. Cortez Azul was also very noisy as of 5 am. The owner promised us free transportation from Villa Pacande to Alajuela whenever we want. As we came to his bar around 9.30 pm, he told us to wait for an hour because he wants to have dinner first. Of cours we took a taxi. On our last day, we had to take a taxi again around 6 am because it ws too early for them. Further our room and bathroom was dirty with spiders webs, dust etc and it smells bad. You do not want to put your food in this fridge as well because this was dirty as well. It seems that he overtook this hotel 2 years ago without taking care of his customers. For sure you will find something better and cleaner for your money. They were having exuses for all our complaints.
