My husband and I just returned from a week long trip to Costa Rica and we began and ended our trip here. It's lovely and the people who run it are very very nice and helpful. Breakfast was nice....coffee, cereal, fruit... NO GALLO PINTO!! ; ) The price is right ($50) and the rooms are clean. Nothing fancy, but we... More

My family has stayed twice at Villa Pacande and enjoyed both stays. Family run with the best service you can imagine. The value can't be beat - great scenery away from the town center, great breakfast, clean rooms (but not fancy), but best is the friendliness of staff. Location is about 2 - 3 miles away from Alajuela central, so... More

This place is a great place to stay near the city but "away from the city". The owners will even spring for your cab from the airport. You get a very warm welcome and truly authentic Costa Rican experience by staying here. The rooms are simple and clean and the yard/garden is beautful. It's family run and the owners were... More

Has character. The family that owns/runs it is very nice and accomadating!! It is nice and close to the airport. Also a... More

We began our family trip in Costa Rica at this hotel. We're a grown family of 5 + a husband. My parents aren't world travelers and although they were open to other accomodations besides american hotels for this trip, they weren't looking for lodging adventures. This villa served it's purpose, and was actually a little better than I thought it... More

I reserved this room after reading all of the reviews on the website. If you want to go here from the airport is to take a taxi to Hotel Pacande. Once you get to Hotel Pacande, they pay for a cab to take you to the Villa. This is exactly what we did. It was pretty well organized. We arrived... More

We discovered this wonderful place on our second trip to Costa Rica in 2003. It is a great deal, clean and inexpensive....run by a nice tico family. Whether you stay downtown or at the Villa, both places are great. Downtown is really convenient for the Airport and staying at the Villa is a treat. We are about to set out... More
