My favorite airport hotel is just 15 minutes from the airport in ALAJUELA called BUENA VISTA. Great atmousphere, reasonably priced. Check it out, I have stayed there a number of times and reccommended it to friends as well who really enjoyed there stay there too. Thirty minutes away in Grecia, an even better but more pricey option, VISTA DEL VALLE PLANTATION INN, awesome place but too pricey for my budget but maybe you can afford it. Either of these hotels will provide you with airport pick-up/drop-off at an addition cost.

I like Orquideas Inn 15 minutes form the airport. I've stayed there 5 times now and haven't been disappointed yet.
