After a long day of traveling from Arizona to Nevada to Texas to Costa Rica, I was beat! I couldn't wait to get to the hotel and into bed. I had reservations at the Los Volcanes hotel, but when we arrived they told me they were full. They had given my room to someone else, and they wouldn't even help us find another room! Luckily the taxi driver was kind enough to call around and he took us to the Hotel Barilla Sol. When we pulled up to the large gate, I was relieved. The hotel was a lot better than the Los Volcanes and it was the same price. The receptionist was very nice, and she quickly signed me in and got me to my room. The room was nothing fancy, but it was very clean and it had AC and hot water! The next morning we ate a wonderful complimentary breakfast on the porch (they have very nice grounds) and then took their free shuttle back to the airport. You really couldn't ask for anything more. This hotel is very close to the airport and the people are very friendly. It is a perfect place if you have a layover in San Jose, I would stay there again.
