Clean, safe, welcoming. Relatively close to the airport. We stayed here two days before departing CR. George was able to coordinate a driver for us to visit Poaz Volcano and La Paz Waterfall at the last minute. Great day trip from Alegria B&B. Thanks George.

We "book ended" our Costa Rican vacation by staying the first and last nights of our vacation with George at Alegria. From the first contact via phone with George, through George picking us up at the airport and dropping us off at the end of our vacation at the airport, George made us feel like family. George is absolutely incredible... More

George, the owner of the B&B, was an extremely gracious host (picked me up from the airport late at nite), and his place is a quiet, suburban spot just outside of downtown Alajuela. Not a spot if you're carless and want to explore Alajuela on your way to/from the airport, but for a nice respite and a good nite's sleep... More

Alegria B&B is the perfect place to bookend your dream vacation to Costa Rica. At the last minute, my husband and I decided to book with Alegria and we were very happy to have found this place. Its located very conveniently to the airport in San Jose but not so close that you hear airplanes flying overhead. Alegria is nestled... More

We stayed at Alegria B&B one night, the room was beautiful. George was great and breakfast was so delicious!! We did have a problem finding it, as it was not listed on the GPS... I called my friend who is from Alajuela to help us find it, one hour and a half later we found it. I think the B&B... More

We stayed at the Alegria our first and last night in Costa Rica. George was a great host. The Alegria is very clean and we had a very nice room. It was very relaxing sitting out in the patio area enjoying a bottle of wine. Thanks George we really enjoyed ourselves.

A great place to stay, close to the airport, with beautiful accommodation and a wonderful host. You feel at home from the minute you arrive and George, the owner, is very knowledgeable about the area and things to do and see in Costa Rica. He happily will pick you up at the airport and bring you back there to meet... More

Since we had an early flight out of SJO, we needed to spend the night near the airport. The reviews for Alegria were amazing so we decided to try it out.

My partner and I stayed with George our first night in Costa Rica before catching a bus the next day to the Caribbean Coast.
