It was nice to have someone meet us at the airport upon our arrival. The hotel is relatively close to Juan Santamaria and in a quiet neighborhood, with pretty grounds. The room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was good. Because it was dark already when we arrived, we didn't venture far for dinner. Chery's, just down the street was a good, nearby option, but we would have liked to get out to see a bit of Alajuela. . . but probably would have required a car.
