“Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

I am very happy with this hotel. I travel a lot specially to Costa Rica as we have business there. I have stayed 3 times at this place since december of 2014 and I like the way they treat people. To me that is the most important. When I get to a place and I get treat like a King that makes up for everything. BUt besides that the rooms are very nice and very clean which is very important. I love the fact they have free transfers to/from the airport and I love the breakfast. Great place to Stay.

This is a good place to stay if you need to be by the airport. I would check to see if you can come in past 11pm if you have a late flight though. The staff are very nice which outweighs the dated rooms but the hotel itself certainly has personality unlike some of the newer ones around the airport. It also has a pool and a restaurant/lounge which is open until 10pm. Breakfast is included in your stay and it was very good. This particular hotel is based on single occupancy and so you pay about $20 US per extra person.

I always stay at the Hotel Aeropuerto, and there are several reasons for that. I want an authentic experience, not a clone of everywhere. Cordial staff is essential, as is cleanliness. Transportation to the nearby international airport is a must. All this is provided with friendliness and grace. The rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable. In addition the hotel provides a complimentary full breakfast. And lastly the restaurant offers delicious food. This last Thursday, January 15 my friend and I ordered Arroz con Pollo, Tilapia Mediterranean style, and Patacones appetizer. Everything was absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked and seasoned. I have eaten Arroz con Pollo probably hundreds of times, and cook it at home as well, and the Arroz con Pollo served me last Thursday night was tge best I have ever eaten. Gracias Gema!

Room Tip: Ask for bottom floor if you have a lot of luggage

My husband and I are really easy to please. We do not have high expectations and only need a clean room to sleep in. We stayed here for 1 night since we had a flight early the next morning. This place is in need of upgrades. I was somewhat scared to take a shower since the tub did not look very inviting (when I took a shower, the water did not drain). I was also very afraid to walk on the carpet in my socks (I wore shoes the entire time). Very convenient location, but I wish they would take the time to upgrade some items here and there.

I only stayed one night in this hotel. Restaurant staff is extremely friendly, especially Marcella and Hector. the rooms have all you need, simple and clean. Only a few minutes from the airport. The garden surrounding the hotel is full of wildlife and beautiful flowers, so nature seeker can already start their observations.

Room Tip: I was part of a group and some people had nice renovated bathrooms, and some rooms had older bathroo...

Close to the airport this is a little bit of Costa Rican charm. Lovely grounds, friendly staff, very good food. We will stay here again. Free shuttle and a pool make this a great choice for a layover. Rooms are clean and comfortable with free wifi and cable television.

The entire staff was so very helpful. The food prepared fresh & super delicious! The grounds beautiful. Very close to airport & transportation provided. The even let me leave some of my luggage with them while I went away a few days & came back.

Room Tip: They have tubs, but you need to request them.
