I live in Costa Rica and My father and I had to be in the city for an appointment. I thought I would stay because I had heard about it and I was curious to see it for myself. This hotel is a hidden gem and so close to the airport! The owners Berni and Nhi are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel at home. Actually the whole place feels like home because of the nice dogs, the large beautiful tropical garden, The super comfortable beds, (not always easy to find in Costa Rica) and the bright artistically decorated rooms. We had a super delicious world class gourmet meal prepared by Nhi that evening. You have to order it ahead. They actually went out shopping to buy the food to prepare the meal so it would be fresh! We needed to leave early and the owner met us with a full breakfast to go! Honestly I don't think there are many B&B's to be found like this one and I would recommend it to anyone who is traveling to Costa Rica as a very nice place to stay in the Central Valley (airport) area.
