I stayed in Vida Tropical for one night while waiting for my flight out of Costa Rica. It is conveniently located next to the airport and the owners can organize a free transfer to the airport. The place itself is clean although I didn't like the rooms so much, it felt clattered and very old fashioned with a lot of fabrics. I couldn't work out the shower as well so had to take it cold, but that could have been me, I was leaving early so had no one to ask about it. To me it lacked the places to chill out as the garden is way too small and the rest of the places did not feel that comfortable. There are some restaurants nearby and the main attractions (which are not many considering it is Alajuela :).
