Afordable, dependable, comfy hotel near airport. We've been 4 times to Costa Rica throught San Jose airport and always stayed there. In fact, we were there 3 times before and this time didn't need a hotel near the airport since our flight was so early; we could reach our final destination in one day (Manuel Antonio). But because of bad weather, our flight was very late and we would reach the capital at midnight with no reservation. I emailed them from our transit airport and without proper reservation or credit card info, they were at the airport with a sign with my name on it. Free shuttle to the hotel, took 5 minutes. They kept the reception open for us so we could buy drinks before heading to bed. They woke us up at the perfect time, in time for a great breakfast. Buffet of fruits, bread, cereals, juice and coffee and service of eggs and gallo pinto. And then, free shuttle to the Sansa airstrip for our flight to Manuel Antonio. And all that for an unbeatable price!
The grounds of the hotel is great. Peaceful garden with flowers and fruits trees. Birds. Quiet neibourghood. There is a pool with patio, outdoor restaurant, little path throught the garden, and some kind of large reception area, a covered large table for 20 peoples maybe. The hotel itself is 2 stories with outdoor patio. All the furniture is great big dark wood. The room itsfelf is large with a sinle and a double bed, couch, dresser, armoire, tv, fan. Don't think there was AC, but we don't need it in the mountain like that. The bed were always a little uncomfortable, too soft. That would be my only concern. The batroom is large, with a large shower and hot water. Not recently renovated, but still clean and functional.
To us, for the price, you can't find better hotel that could be so dependable, servicable, easy, comfy, serein. Going in and out of Costa Rica, we will always chose this place.
