We booked this hotel b/c they offered a free shuttle service to/from the airport and we had an early morning flight to catch. The hotel provided a lot of extras including free long distance calls, 4 guest computers with free internet, free pick up from the airport and they cover the cost of your cab to the airport in the...

Our rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious with air conditioning and fan, TV, coffee machine, fridge, safe, hair dryer and toiletries (even including sewing kit and handy pack of tissues). Breakfast was very good with cereals, selection of fresh fruit and cooked... More

My husband and I flew into Costa Rica on February 10, 2012 and stayed one night in the Adventure Inn before going to Monteverde. After a long day of traveling, the Adventure Inn was exactly what we needed. The hotel is just a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport. The woman at the reception desk, Mary from California, gave...

We stayed 2 nights at the beginning of our Costa Rica trip, and 1 night at the end, mainly because it is close to the airport. However, since we were not interested to see San Jose, we prefered to be out of town. The hotel has a local flavour, larger rooms (ours was with Jacuzzi), including a coffee machine, fridge... More

Adventure Inn is only two floors. Rather than having a clunky, noisy elevator, we have a porter 24/7 who will carry your luggage and show you to your room. I am not sure why these people did not use our porter, or simply request a room on the ground floor. More

The proximity to the airport as well as the value of the Adventure Inn was what initially attracted us, but the funky and unique character of the inn made our stay very pleasant and enjoyable. A very friendly staff, nice restaurant and bar, along with very clean rooms made the Adventure Inn a place I would most definitely recommend!

We stayed 3 nights at the Adventure Inn during our recent visit to Costa Rica. It was wonderful to have a very short ride from the airport after a day of flying. We were able to rest up for a long excursion the next day before traveling on for a week in Manuel Antonio. The restaurant and bar was very... More
