5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

My family and I have stayed here 5 times over the last 4 years. It is always quiet and clean. The staff is friendly, helpful and capable. One of our favorite things is the complementary breakfast that includes a wide variety of fresh fruit. We look forward to staying there again.

When we are traveling to San Jose from the U S or traveling back for the past six years we always stay with the Adventure Inn. First the owners and management are great. The staff are very professional, and friendly. The breakfast served in the morning is fabulous. They have a real nice pool to swim in. The rooms and... More

This was our third trip to Costa Rica and once again, we spent our first night here before heading to Uvita and our last night before flying home. Staff has always been friendly and helpful and the rooms are always clean. You can arrange for them to contact the rental car company and schedule transportation from/to the airport when booking...

Had an overnight stay that doubled due to a volcanic eruption. The staff was gracious, focused on problem solving. Rooms are well equipped with all the standard conveniences you'd expect in the US, but not necessarily receive in CR (bath products, TV, air conditioning, blankets!) The restaurant is far from excellent, but it suffices to fill a belly.

Like most, we spent one night here before our flight out. Front desk was nice and as able to get us booked on a shuttle (free) for the next morning even though we were outside of the required time requirements. Dinner was suggested since they have a new chef and it was pretty good. Margaritas were excellent. Breakfast was over... More

Highly recommended as a starting or ending point for your tour of Costa Rica. In fact they helped us book travel via Interbus for the next leg of our journey. Large, comfortable pretty rooms and large bathroom. The inviting patio, pool and hot tub area connects to an indoor-outdoor bar and restaurant. Good drinks and good food.The included breakfast is...

This place was great. Has everything you need and a really good vibe. The little restaurant was good, the staff is great, rooms are fine. Walking distance to good shops. Great shuttle to airport and car pick-up. My older son wanted to live there:)

We stayed here for 1 night after arriving into San Jose. We picked up our hire car and drove 10 minutes. It was nice and easy to find and broke us in gently to the San Jose driving! The reason for staying was that we didn't want to be driving over Cerro de la Meurte at night ... A very... More

Thanks for the great review. The writer was referring to a local favourite called pejibaye. They grow in bunches in a type of palm tree, orange and brown when ripe, they look like golf ball sized pumpkins, and though they are considered a fruit, they are not sweet and taste similar to a yam. You slow boil them, then peel... More

This is a very confortable family friendly hotel close to the Airport of San Jose. Perfect to stay when arriving or leaving from Costa Rica by plane. We had an excellent spacious family room which perfectly fitted 5. Very good beds. Free shuttles to the airport. Good pool. The food could be better... but given the quality of the rooms... More
