My stay at Adventure in was perfect. I arrived at 7 pm on the airport of SJO and the free transfer from airport to the hotel was amazing. It took a lot of pressure away, and I didn‘t have to worry to get lost. The rooms are very clean. I departured early around 5am but I got breakfast to go and the staff made sure to support me in every way.

I had nothing but positive experiences with Adventure Inn. I say experienceS, plural, because during our stay, we actually ended up coming back to Adventure Inn on three separate occasions. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends, families, couples, and solo travelers and I encourage you all to step out of your comfort zone and stay somewhere other than a Hilton or Marriott, you can find those anywhere! The staff here are beyond helpful, and all so kind. I very much enjoyed eating and drinking at the Moon Glow restaurant. The food was amazing and the staff was extremely friendly. I am extremely grateful for the man working the front desk upon our check out. He helped call our laboratory and push our covid test results through faster so we were able to fly home successfully. We are not sure what we would have done without him. Like I said, this hotel is definitely a five star experience. Do yourself a favor and book a stay here especially if you are flying in or out of San Jose.

I love staying at the Adventure Inn for so many reasons. Logistically it's right in the center of the country, so great for venturing out to either coast, mountains, etc. In fact, I'm at the beach now! But what is the best feature of the Adventure Inn for me is the employees - they don't just act like they care about your needs, they actually do care. Super helpful - arranging for transportation, helping with guide services, recommending restaurants, etc. They seem like they really do care, because they do. What a great experience again -

On impulse, myself and another family booked 2 rooms. We were just looking for a reasonably priced resort, close to SJO for the end of our CR vacation. It ended up be one of the best nights of our trip! While definitely not 5 star, we found large clean rooms, a cute little hot tub/pool-bar restaurant, and staff that was incredibly friendly and helpful! Our kids had a blast, and the airport shuttle got us there on time.

I’ve stayed at Adventure Inn numerous times in the past nine years. I love it here. This was my first trip in fifteen months due to the pandemic. There is no decrease in the quality of comfort or services since I was here last. The restaurant hours have been scaled back somewhat but Alejandro and Natalia still cook and serve wonderful food and drinks. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable and the staff are as friendly and helpful as ever. It’s a testament to the owner that the hotel continues to be an example of what determination during tough times can achieve. If you’re traveling to Costa Rica, this is where you should begin your trip.

WOW, thank you so much. The pandemic has been very hard on tourism in Costa Rica, but we followed all the protocols and never closed, though we could have bowled in the halls some nights. Things are slowly getting busier and my wonderful patient staff are slowly moving from part-time back to full-time, tourism couldn't bounce back too soon.
