The building is cozy. The friendly staff is the friendliest that I ever encounter on my trips. Mike and the all crew at the restaurant deserve to be mention more, but no one, not one was rude nor unsympathetic with us. The cleaning staff, lovely. the hotel location a plus. rounding I can tell you there will not be another...

This hotel is convenient to the airport, 10 minutes or so, so we stayed there from a late flight waiting for our friends the next day. We had time on our hands so they told us how to take the bus downtown San Jose and how to get back. The free breakfast was from a menu and was wonderful. The...

Our flight was delayed from an 11:30am arrival in San Jose, to 10:15PM arrival... We had planned on going straight to Playa Santa Teresa (our main destination) as soon as we landed. Obviously, that did not happen. When we contacted the manager of the hotel in Playa Santa Teresa (Casa Cecilia) to advise of our situation, he recommended overnighting in...

We stayed here for one night as two couples on our arrival in San Jose. The hotel had arranged a late-night complimentary pick-up from the airport and we received a very warm welcome on arrival. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable with individual murals on the walls of each room. The theme continued throughout the hotel, giving it a...

A small note about the welcome email. When booking through third party websites, they do not provide us with the guests' contact information. So you can either send us an email through our website and request it, or better yet, just book in real-time directly through our website and we'll make sure you receive it.

My wife and I stayed at the Adventure Inn at the beginning and end our most recent trip. The hotel is charming, decorated in a "funky" Costa Rican style and convenient to the airport. Both rooms we had were spacious, comfortable and very clean. The restaurant and bar are good and the staff were pleasant and friendly. Everything considered, we...

Two years ago we stayed at Adventure inn 3 times during a month of travel in Costa Rica. This year we again were back in Costa Rica and again stayed 3 different times at this hotel. It is small, and perfect for short or long stays. The pool, restaurant and rooms serviced our short stays very well. The front desk...

We booked the Adventure Inn for our first and last nights. It's very close to the airport (15 minutes) and has a free shuttle service. After much investigation, we rented our 4X4 through the hotel -- hassle free, same, if not better, prices than going through other rental companies, and we were able to have it dropped off and picked...
