We needed a place to stay after flying in to SJO close to airport to catch an early hop to The Osa Peninsula. I would recommend Alajuela over San Jose and certainly reccomend Los Volcanos Hotel. Three adults in one room it was gracious, clean had ceiling fan and private bathroom. The staff was so helpful in directing us (especially since our Spainsh was pitiful and their Engish was excellent) to places for dinner-the central market has lots of great options go for late lunch as it closes early but you can buy snacks to nibble later. They helped us get a taxi in the morning with plenty of time to make our flight. Los Volcanos was a great place to start our Costa Rican adventure we felt safe and well taken care of.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We strive to make every guest feel welcome. We agree!!! Alajuela is much better than San Jose and so close to the airport... in fact, we are only an 8 minute taxi ride! We look forward to serving you on another trip to Costa Rica.

My husband and I visited Hotel Los Volcanes for 4 nights and it was such a great experience. It is nestled in the heart of Alajuela. The hotel has a romantic feel and very comfortable. I am big about cleanliness and that is the first thing I noticed. It was VERY clean. The staff was kind with great customer service. I loved that we were able to walk to dinner with many great options to choose from. The mango tree plaza was down the street, and they have the best market a block a way. I plan to come back with some friends and stay at this hotel. I felt very safe in that location and it was a great experience all together.

I have been to Costa Rica now on two occasions and this is by far the best place we've stayed. The location is in the heart of the city of Alajuela which is only a few minutes away from the airport. The hotel is beautiful and sits near some of the best restaurants and places to shop. The superior rooms are very up to date and clean. The customer service is also excellent and the breakfast they serve in the mornings are awesome!!! I would definitely stay at this place again and would recommend it to anyone I know who is going to Costa Rica :-)

My heart is overwhelmed with gratitude and joy. I think this is the best review we have had to date since we acquired the business a little over a year ago. A lot of love and thoughtfulness has gone into updating all our rooms. The Superior Rooms are amazing now! Even our Comfort Rooms have gotten an upgrade/update. We have even updated all the hot water heaters, WiFi, and other mechanical items. Agreed... we have an amazing staff that truly cares that our guests feel welcomed and are well taken care of... AND the breakfast is the best in ALAJUELA!!! Thank you for the amazing recommendation and we look forward to serving you again in the future!
