My husband and I stayed at Alegria the night before and the day after our trip to the Osa Peninsula. Alegria is located only about 5 minutes from the international airport and George (the owner) will come to pick you up and take you back to the airport. After a long day of flying, it was so great to see his smiling face and sign with my name on it among the hordes of taxi drivers vying for our attention. We were whisked away to the peace and quiet of Alegria. Our room and bathroom were spotless with excellent water pressure and hot water. Staying at Alegria with George is like staying at a friend's house. He made arrangements for a Tico friend of his named Luis to take us to the Tobias airport in Pavas to catch our Nature Air flight to Drake Bay the next day. When we came back to San Jose from our stay in Drake Bay, Luis was there to pick us up. He gave us a great city tour of San Jose and graciously showed us his house.
When we come back again, we will definitely stay with George at Alegria and make sure that we stay a few extra days so Luis can show us the sights of Central Costa Rica. George's homemade muffins are fantastic!
Alajuela is a quiet suburb and Alegria is about a 15 minute walk to the downtown area.
Details: George takes cash (not credit cards). There is also free wifi. There is a TV in the room.
We highly recommend Alegria and whole heartedly agree with all of the great prior TripAdvisor reviews!
