We found this hotel thru Trip Advisor and decided to give a shot with all of the great reviews. We were not disappointed. After making our reservations, we received our confirmation and several pages of info on the hotel, it's location, and all of the great day trips available thru the hotel. They've got taxis and tours lined up to...

Thank you for your great review. Unfortunately the roads in Costa Rica tend to be poor. They make sidewalks for part of the way and not the rest, they are poorly painted, pot holes all over, without mentioning how the people actually drive. Between Adventure Inn and the nearby mall, there is one block where there is no sidewalk. For...

I needed a place in San Jose to spend one night in transit and my son recommended Adventure Inn. It was perfect for my needs. The staff was helpful and friendly and they all spoke English. They provided a free cab to the airport in the morning. My flight left too early for me to enjoy the breakfast my son...

We stayed at the Adventure Inn just before heading out to the Airport to leave Costa Rica. The staff was incredibly friendly, and packed up a breakfast that we could take with us to the airport in the morning because we had to leave before the hotel breakfast started.

We had an excellent stay at the adventure inn. The location near the airport and the free shuttle were super convenient. It was also really convenient renting a car through the hotel. The car was deliverered to the hotel promptly and we didn't have to wait at the airport after a long day traveling. The restaurant had great food including...

Large comfortable, simple rooms. There's also a nice space upstairs for sitting and relaxing or using the computers/internet. Breakfast was also good - selection of fresh fruit and hot options that were tasty. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only bad experience we had was dinner in the restaurant - the bartender who served us dinner was clueless, forgetful and incompetent....

We used this hotel at the begining and end of our two week tour of Costa Rica. The room rate includes for collection and return to the airport, approximately 10min drive away, both of which were efficiently managed. Both of the rooms we had were of a good size and were clean, the bathrooms had hot showers. There was a...

Thank you for your review. From time to time, the computers upstairs somehow get un-configured and someone needs to re-add the printer. I try to stay on top of it, but sometimes if nobody mentions it to me, it can sit like that for a day or so. Most of the time they all work perfectly. If someone loses the...

Comfortable, clean and well appointed rooms. A delicious breakfast. Excellent value, especially when taking advantage of the cash discount.

“My family of four (2 adults and 2 kids) chose to have 2 rooms that adjoined-it was perfect and cost the same as one room in the states.”
