My husband and I coincidently found this sympathic Inn (B&B Costa Rican motel style) in Alajulea, Costa Rica (about 10 min drive to the Airport) and 30 km from San José, the capital. This is one of the ideal places to stay if you wish to visit touristic attractions around the capital of this country and stay out of big cities. We spend a week there with no predetermined plans for visits, but got everything organized from there with the help of the owners, who were the most attentionate to all of their clients.
This beautiful Inn, located in the suberbs of Alajuela (very private place as surrounded by high concrete walls and entrance locked at night) with parking spaces, is owned by a very pleasant young lady and her parents (from England), who were super attentive and helpul in their recommendations for good places to visit and eat. They would call taxis for us, order take-outs to eat in their little dining room and brought us back to the airport as any other big hotel would do. They are excellent at servicing their clients.
The place was super comfortable with large bedrooms with clean and recent linens and furniture and comfortable beds, excellent shower pressure and warm water with a large bathroom. The entire place is very well maintained and top clean, with a good size swimming pool and mature threes and flowers around. It was a little bit noisy in the surrounding because it's near the highway #1and local roads, but with the AC in the room you do not hear it anymore. They have a good size TV in the rooms with cable and also access to free WiFi in their loundge. Their staff were also very kind and always ready to assist us in any service needs. You may also rent an all furnished little studio for the month if you wish. Prices of rooms are not expensive.
This place is well centralized to visit many interesting points of attractions (but 4 hours drive from the Arenal Volcan or 4 hours drive to Puerto Limon). Try the canopy tour in San Lorenzo, this is the best place!!
