This hotel truly is 10 minutes from San Jose. We booked one night here prior to our 6am departure for that reason. This is a typical costa rican hotel. If you are looking for something fancy, this would not be it. It is small and quaint with a nice restaurant, a pool and beautiful gardens surrounding it. As our GPS...

Location is ok. Hotel looks ok. We were here for 3 nights. Noisy toilet. No hot water in the shower. But the most horrible thing were the man and woman at the reception. Service without a smile. Very negative energy. Never again.

Chose this hotel as near the San Jose airport. Turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Hidden inside the city of Alejuela, it is quiet, has a beautiful tropical yard, great food, and excellent staff. Will go back there if I make it back to Costa Rica

This hotel is great and so handy for the airport - wish we had stayed here on arrival in Costa Rica as well as on departure. They provide a free shuttle service to and from the airport and you travel on a back road and avoid all the heavy traffic on the main road. The rooms are huge and immaculate,...

We booked this hotel for one night to be close to the airport. The reviews and pics looked great, but we were still surprised when we got there. You turn off a very busy street into this beautiful, tranquil, quiet hotel. The staff was super friendly also.

A wonderful beginning, or end of holiday stay hotel. Very near to San Jose airport. The staff are very welcoming, multilingual and happy to help at all times. Our dinner was lovely too. Thank you. It is a little oasis off of a bustling San Jose high street. A real surprise awaits you at the end of the driveway. The...

The only logical choice for staying close to the airport if you are awaiting an early morning next day flight. Very green and quiet, with a relaxing pool. Lots of birds that just add to the atmosphere. Our room was great, very clean with comfortable beds and a nice hot shower! On site restaurant was fairly priced and had great...

Stayed here to start and end trip because of closeness to airport. Quiet hotel even though very close to airport. Rooms were large and clean, though very hot due to no air conditioning. Had an ant problem in the lower level room during first stay. Staff answered any questions though kept to themselves unless approached. Pubic Wifi was available for...
