“Customer service at it's best!”
Reviewed August 10, 2006

We stayed only one night at the Adventure Inn, on our way to our timeshare resort in Puntarenas. Our 3 teenage children were allowed to stay in our room at no extra charge, and the resort was very accomodating with beds for all of us. The room was very spacious and clean. This being our first time in Costa Rica, we had many questions about transportation, tipping, directions, money, etc. despite our diligent research before the trip. Mike, at the front desk, spoke very good English, and was very happy to answer any and all questions we had, putting us instantly at ease and setting us up for an extremely enjoyable vacation in Costa Rica. (The resort is also very good about responding to emails.) He gave us quite a bit of inside information that you won't find on the internet or in guidebooks, making it very easy for us to mingle with the locals without offending people. When our transportation to our resort fell through, Mike was able to get new transportation set up for us at a very good price. He gave us great information on where to eat a nice Costa Rican style dinner for a reasonable price, and set up transportation for us to the restaurant. The entire staff was very polite and accomodating, despite the language barrier. Although it seems there isn't anything around the resort, we did see a large souvenir shop just down the street, and there is a large mall across the highway. I would definitely recommend this hotel, and will visit it again if I am blessed with another trip to this beautiful country.

My wife and I have stayed at the Adventure Inn several times during the past year. We have always enjoyed our stay there. The staff has been helpful and present whenever needed. The rooms are clean and large. Internet access is free and there are several machines to use. The bar and restaurant serve very good food and fair priced drinks. It is really nice to be able to come back to the hotel after a long day and not have to leave for dinner and drinks. It is true that there is not much around the hotel, but that is not why we stay there anyway. The hotel is at its best when used as a base for day trips or for your way in and out of the country. They are only 10 min from the airport and will pay your cab ride to the hotel from the airport, which is a nice touch. We have stayed at a number of other places closer to downtown during our many trips and have not found any other place that had such a combination of things that make it a great value. Room rates are also very fair.

The Adventure is one of the best places to stay in all of San Jose.
I have lived in Costa Rica for 10 years and own a business that requires a good hotel for our clients. My clients, friends and family all have only positive things to say about the Adventure Inn. I also see many other residents who live outside the city, when I am staying there. Popular opinion among them is that it is the best. Actually, I don´t see how you can improve on it, but if I hear of any ideas, I will pass them on. Keep up the good work.
