This was the only place open close to the hotel. It has a lot of the standard food you would expect that is fine to eat but nothing savory but what caught me by surprise was the expense. My chicken sandwich and Diet Coke was...More

We ate here after arriving at the airport and being shuttled to our hotel. An okay dinner. We've never been to a Denny's that serves beer but it was a nice addition to the meal.

I was amazed at the quick and friendly service, and the Denny’s 1-block from the Hampton in Alajuela serves beer/wine too. The entire meal was served within 5-minutes of order, and cooked to perfection. Loved it...on my way back to the USA.

For the price it has in Costa Rica, I would have expected more. Service is amazing but food is just on. The mac and cheese has a generic taste. Tea has refill. It’s at least nice to have a place opening 24 hours. I recommend...More
