“Perfect location for in / out bound flights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We spent 2 nights here and it's was exceptional value. The pool is great and clean, the rooms a little dark, but huge and clean with free WIFI everywhere at excellent strength.

There is an ok gym and a good business centre and the restaurant and bar are perfect for this level of hotel.

And it's only 15 minutes - in off peak traffic to SJO airport.

Stayed the first and last night of our Costa Rica holiday in the Adventure Inn, wished we had stayed longer! Really great place to stay, convenient for the airport and the free shuttle is a real bonus. The staff couldn't be more helpful and efficient; the rooms are great and the food (we ate breakfast and dinner there) was outstanding.

I can't recommend this hotel highly enough - it's a real oasis in the madness that is San Jose!

After a 10 hour flight this place was very welcome. We were met at the airport by the shuttle we had pre-booked and it was a short drive to the hotel. The place has a lovely atmosphere, beautifully decorated. The quad room was very large (so many places squeeze 4 beds into a tiny room). They have a nice pool but it was a bit cold in the evening so we just used the Jacuzzi which was fun.
We organised car hire through the hotel. My only criticism was that the car didn’t turn up at 7.15 and when we asked they phoned through to the hire company who then brought the car but it meant we set off much later than intended. I know this wasn’t really their fault as such but I had expected they would have been on top of this and made sure the car was there.
The car hire guy gave fantastic instructions (btw, we brought our own GPS to save money; make sure that your Costa Rica map works ok, ours wouldn’t actually navigate us anywhere till we were about 10km away!)

We stayed here our last night in Costa Rica as we had an early flight to catch at 4:30 the next morning and could not find a ride that early from Guanacaste where we originally stayed. The grounds are very well maintained and the service was hands down the best I have ever had ANYWHERE. I have stayed at many 4 and 5 star resorts and hotels with much less attention to detail and customer service. Immediately upon arrival we felt very welcome. The front desk staff were on point with everything. We got there at about 9, had breakfast (which was included with the room and was absolutely delicious!) and wanted to find something close by to do on our last day here so we asked the front desk and they recommended the Toucan Rescue Ranch about 20 minutes from the hotel. She called and booked us a last minute tour with Leslie the owner which was perfect because the Rescue has a ton of animals and birds all rehabilitating from very poor conditions. The tour at the ranch was amazing see our review under Toucan Rescue Ranch for how awesome that place is! After coming back we had a few drinks at the bar, and enjoyed our jacuzzi suite which was a perfect way to wind down before getting up at 4 AM to depart back to the states. I literally can't say enough good things about this place and the amazing people who run this place day in and day out! Thanks to Eric the owner and the rest of the staff for making this last leg of the trip much more than we could have anticipated! We already plan on coming back and spending more time here because of how great it was. Food was delicious and very reasonably priced compared to the resorts we stayed at in Guanacaste and better in my opinion. Thanks again Adventure Inn this was our first but definitely not our last visit with you!

Room Tip: Jacuzzi suites have a bidet!

Only stayed one night while dropping off European relatives for a flight. Probably one of the most
Professional and helpful staffs I have ever encountered in many years of travels for both business and pleasure. All facilities were were well kept and spotless. Will definitely recommend tour family and friends!!

We really enjoyed our week long stay. The entire staff was extremely helpful and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Janice and Manuel in the restaurant were exceptional. Our tour with Jorge and Manfred was just the very best. All of the front desk staff including owner Eric were so pleasant and KIND. The food in the restaurant was very good. We enjoyed everything about the Adventure Inn and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else on any return trips to Costa Rica. Thanks to All!

We stayed here for 2 weeks and found it to be in a great location. We were able to get in and out of the city quickly and the rooms were a nice size. The restaurant on site was quite good. Nice breakfast included. Staff very friendly and efficient. They have a small gym, pool and internet provided. We will stay here again in the future.
