Arriving in a foreign country at night can be nerve-wracking, but the staff at Adventure Inn made it a breeze. Surw, there's fast, reliable free wi-fi and a nice pool by the bar, but the highlight of our visit was the accommodating staff. Nancy helped us figure out how to navigate to our next destination by public bus, exchanged some of our US dollars to Colones for bus fare, and when it turned out we had to check out at 6am, she reserved us a cab and even packed us a lunch! As a result, we'll be returning for the last night of our Costa Rican odyssey. Thanks Adventure Inn!

This place is dedicated to making your stay comfy and easy. The staff is absolutely incredible! The place was clean as a whistle in all corners.

If I had to make only one criticism, it is a very tiny one: the restaurant and all of its staff were fabulous and all meals were fresh, hot and delicious. However, it would benefit them to become familiar with what Americans expect when ordering a ribeye. The ribeye special was tasty but not what an American would expect: very small and as thin as an iPhone.

i've stayed at adventure inn several times now, for several reasons: the place is immaculate; the front desk staff is professional, welcoming and extremely on point (they even helped me sort a shady cabbie's attempted shakedown); the restaurant experience is top shelf, the wait staff perfectly mannered (and extremely attractive); big, clean rooms in an easy, cozy, relaxing environment; right-priced.. right move.

We had a bit of a hard time finding the Adventure Inn, but you can blame that one on me! Once there, we were pleasantly surprised and how nice it was. The staff were terrific, the breakfast was absolutely wonderful and the rooms were very, very nice. It had a very family atmosphere and I highly recommend the Adventure Inn.

We had a great time at the adventure inn. We didn't have big expectations because we were just trying to stay close to the airport for an early flight, but the front staff and bar/restaraunt staff were so friendly and helpful, that we felt very special and really enjoyed our time there. The room was unexpectedly huge, the pool jacuzzi and bar were clean and well cared for. The free breakfast and shuttle to the airport were very helpful. The price was reasonable, and smart. It's very natural for Amricans to book a Holiday Inn, or something that they know. Keeping your cost below them is very smart. I'd stay at the Adventure Inn next time I'm in CR and tell my friends as well.

We stayed here for a week it was excellent, rooms great and large, breakfast included, the greatest staff. Jose the hotel manager was so helpful any thing we asked about he knew, told us lots about valcanos etc. Always smiling sincere. helped us by answering all of our questions about Costa Rica. Front desk all staff were excellent what ever we needed they helped. Mike Corry one of the best bartenders we have ever met, any questions about anything he knew all the answers. Kept us laughing all the time super funny and friendly. Yanett the manager looked after us all the time she was so friendly, again any thing we needed we got. All the staff very professional but had a good time with them also. We will return and I hope all of you great staff will be there.

Room Tip: We were on the seconf floor very quiet, large rooms, clean.
