Native speakers of English, polite, efficient, free transport to and from airport, good breakfasts, quiet, comfortable rooms, excellent value. They even had breakfasts ready for us to take with us when we left for the airport at 4AM.

This was our third time to stay at Adventure Inn and I'm happy to report that since our last visit 2 years ago - the customer service is just as good - the rooms just as clean and the proximity to the airport and the arranged airport shuttle once again made our flight home very easy. They met us at the check-out desk (at 4:45 a.m.) with our brown bag breakfasts that just hit the spot when we were waiting at the gate for our early morning flight. Repeat customers speak well for any establishment and yes we will be back again and again.

My family just returned home from Costa Rica for a second time and, both trips, Adventure Inn has book-ended our vacation so well. They've started us off on such a great foot before heading out to our final destination and then helped us end our trip on such a great note before heading back home. The location is ideal, the fun decor and lay-out is so family friendly and unique, they provided our transportation and a packed meal as we headed out, and the staff is extremely kind and accommodating. Case in point: upon returning home yesterday and unpacking we discovered that we accidentally left behind our son's stuffed bunny in the bed. We emailed Adventure Inn last night, heard back first thing this morning from the owner that they indeed had it and they've already mailed it back. Thank you so much! You totally saved the day and most certainly lifted our little boy's spirits. We are so grateful and we definitely will be coming back!!

The owners of this hotel are got back to us with every Info request we made. They took care of our shuttle to and from the airport (included in the price of the room rental). They also had a very reasonable car rental arranged for us. It was delivered to the hotel the day after we arrived at our request. We flew in late at night and did not want to worry about accommodations near the airport. They are reasonably priced and great to deal with. The hotel is not extravagant but is a close to the airport and a great place to start and end your vacation.

We arrived in Costa Rica late on New Years Eve and needed a place near the airport for our first night in the country. There was supposed to be a van to pick us up but it never showed up so we had to take a cab to the hotel )$12.00' not appreciated. But after we got there' the staff was friendly and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast which was included in our hotel gave us several choices of what we wanted to eat. This hotel is a good place to stay if you have a late arrival or an early departure

Our free shuttles to and from the international airport transfer literally thousands of people every year, and on a very rare occasion, I mean less than .1%, something goes wrong. Unfortunately usually it is the guest entering the wrong date on the request form, as it is all computerized. If these guests had mentioned the problem, even if it was their fault, who knows, we would have gladly refunded the $12 taxi fare. We try to bend over backwards to keep our valued guests happy and coming back.

just wanted to pass along to the nice people working at the Adventure Inn near the San Jose airport that you made our stay that much better. We used the inn as a starting and ending point of our CR vacation, flying in at night and flying out in the early am. Adventure Inn provided great service getting us to and from the airport as well has having a very nice restaurant, thus preventing its patrons from having to find a local restaurant. Believe me, considering where the hotel is located, that would not be a trivial pursuit. The bartender, Mike, was a great conversationalist and being from Michigan, it was easy to communicate our questions about CR to him. I would highly recommend anyone flying to CR to use the Adventure Inn as a starting point -- they are able to provide a multitude of services and a wealth of information regarding tourism in Costa Rica.

AdventureInn, Owner at Adventure Inn, responded to this review, January 6, 2013
Actually, there are several nice restaurants in a new open-air mall about four blocks from Adventure Inn, another six within a ten minute walk, and if you cross the foot bridge over the highway, maybe fifteen minutes, is a large mall with everything from a food court to fine dining. In total there are over thirty restaurants within a fifteen minute walk or a two minute drive of Adventure Inn. Of course, especially at night, instead of wandering the streets, we do love when guests just decide to safely dine in-house to enjoy the value, convenience and home-made Tico and international dishes of our own open-air restaurant, the MoonGlow Bar and Grill, open daily until 9:30 pm for full entres, and up to 11 pm or later for lighter meals and snacks.

We stayed 2 nights at Adventure Inn in December before going to other parts of Costa Rica. The staff was fantastic, the room was very nice, and the value was incredible (breakfast and airport transportation included). I wish we had stayed longer. Highly recommend this property.
