Excellent 10.0
Pros: The owner was very helpful to plan part of our trip. The cottages are very secluded and you have a lot of privacy.
Good 7.0
Pros: Large bedroom and bathroom, comfortable bed. Jose was very helpful in my mission to find food delivery.
Cons: Almost no water pressure in the shower and hot water wasn't working. Bugs come right under the door, lack of A/C, and tv (not everyone travels with a laptop)
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Pura Vida Hotel was the first place we stayed at Costa Rica. All the staff, specially Berni (owner) were amazing since the first minute. They helped us getting a super car quote, which was delivered at the hotel. The hotel garden is pure joy!! Delicious homemade breakfast and also shared with us super helpful tips to make our trip even better and safe. Couldn't recommend more! We loved it :)
Excellent 10.0
Pros: This is a fantastic place to stay. We stayed 3 nights - 2 at the beginning of our trip and 1 at the end. The gardens are gorgeous with so many plants and animals. Exceptional. We stayed in the Toucan cabin. It was gorgeous. Beautiful shower, well laid out, separate shower, living room with fridge and sink, tables outside. I spent some time in a hammock in the garden. Hummingbirds everywhere. 2 friendly dogs were fun to play with. The location is great - near the airport., but quiet. Near the Poas Volcano and La Paz Waterfall gardens which are worth a visit. Free taxi from the airport. Great breakfast in the morning. Car Rental is delivered to you at the breakfast table. I want to stay here again. So peaceful.
Cons: There is nothing I can think of not to like.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The lush gardens, delicious breakfast, besides roomy casita (two bedrooms, two bathrooms, dining and living areas) were perfect for our family of four. Berni and José were welcoming, humorous and efficient. We recommend staying at Pura Vida Hotel over other hotel airports that are antiseptic and uninteresting (Hampton Inn our first night in CR was fine, but nothing to write home about). Uber Eats worked fine for dinner for us. Lastly, our teen son loved playing with the owners’ beautiful dogs!
Cons: (The street noise and roosters weren’t an issue for us. The provided earplugs are the same brand that I use nightly!)
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The owner was very accommodating. He helped us with taxis and recommending a place to eat. When we got to the restaurant the owner approached us about souvenirs. The owner of Pura Vida had told him we were coming and asked to help us find a place to shop. He also brought umbrellas to us when it started raining. I loved the individual villas and outdoor areas to relax.
Cons: The individual villas were difficult to get to with a heavy piece of luggage.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Berni was fantastic. Sorted all our issues out.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: So glad we found Pura Vida hotel! Wonderful hosts, delightful property and comfy quarters, orchids everywhere in the beautiful garden. Did I mention the amazing food? If you’re lucky enough to be offered dinner, jump at the chance. We look forward to our return visit. Thanks Berni and Nhi!

Cons: Noise of planes, but so closed from the airport, it's normal
Excellent 10.0
Pros: As always the owners are really amazing and I met Chloe and she is beautiful! I always stay there before I travel and I can say that I feel really safe in the hotel.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: One of the most comfortable, safe, and reasonably priced places to stay when you want to be close to the airport for transitioning to and from your country. The owners are very helpful in fulfilling your needs. I will return! :)
Cons: That I couldn't stay longer!
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The breakfast was lovely, I really enjoyed it!
Excellent 8.0

Cons: A bit dated but clean and comfy beds.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: I will never stay anywhere else if Im flying in/ out of San Jose! The staff are just so lovely - I had a really early flight, they dropped me at the airport (at no extra charge) and even packed me an airport friendly breakfast. Super clean, beautiful little garden. Happy!
Excellent 10.0

Excellent 9.7
Pros: The hotel is only a 5 minute drive to the airport- very close. The breakfast included was very good. The owner is VERY helpful and accommodating. Taxis to and from the airport are paid for.
Cons: The bed wasn’t very comfortable and the bathroom was a little outdated. Only a minor issue considering the price, however.

Excellent 8.0
Pros: The continental breakfast was small with only fruit and toast. Coffee was excellent
Excellent 9.0
Pros: We were so pleased we chose this amazingly peaceful oasis of calm, at the end of a driveway away from busy road. Beautiful garden setting with lovely view from large balcony - felt like we had arrived in the rainforest but with the convenience of proximity to the international airport. Aircraft noise was not an issue - surprisingly infrequent, not a problem for a light sleeper. Lovely hosts communicated exceptionally well and went out of their way to help. Breakfast and dining were 10/10 for every aspect - couldn't have asked for more. We would definitely return. Highly recommended!
Cons: After staying in a few rainforest accommodations I have come to expect a few inevitable insects in the room, but there were a few more ants than expected here (harmless and on the floor but maybe an issue for some). Overall, nothing we would have changed!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The location was beautiful. We felt as though we were in a little Paradise even though we were right in the middle of Alajuela. I wish we could have stayed more nights so we could have enjoyed it more.
Cons: It did get a bit hot while sleeping because the beautiful French doors couldn't be left open because of the bugs. I know it's a difficult situation because if there were screens that you wouldn't have a wide-open feeling but because there was no air conditioning the room got a bit stuffy even with the ceiling fan on.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: It’s next to a river and you can hear the water while you sleep
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Travel reviews don't often mention magic, but this place gets a 10/10 on the magic scale. One of the best (maybe the best) places we stayed on our 11 day visit. Amazing food and so much beauty - the pictures don't do it justice. I almost want to extend our trip just to rest here another night. When we arrived we stayed at an airport express hotel but the vibes there never feel good and the food isn't nourishing. So we tried this Inn on our way out and it was surprisingly lovely and filled with heart and nourishment. I am reminded of how much the subtle energy and intention of a space has an impact on experience. We will be back!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Very peaceful place(8 units) near the airport and away from the hustle bustle of the fast moving city. A quiet sanctuary and the pictures are exactly how it looks. Karem who speaks english very well and her husband give it that extra effort of hospitality. Perfect place to return to!
Cons: Only thing maybe more towels.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: We needed a room close to the airport as my flight was at 1:45am. The gate keeper came to our room to be sure we were up so he could open the gate for us to let is out and the. Of course had to let my boyfriend back in after he dropped me off. That was very nice of him to check on us so I didn't miss my flight it was a shorty
Cons: All was fine. It was a short stay for me

Excellent 10.0
Pros: The staff was excellent and the room was large and comfortable. It was also clean and the location is great. I'll definitely stay there again the next time I travel to San Jose!
Okay 5.0
Pros: Front desk (Eric) did a very nice job of informing and checking in.
Cons: Restaurant was ok and staffing was so so.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Nice staff, great breakfast
Cons: Hotel shuttle should come on demand instead of 30 minute intervals
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Safety is good. Breakfast in facility is good.
Cons: On my stay there were more kids than expected. Baseball international function. Any way this made to stay a bit less business like.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Very clean, great location, and super friendly staff.
Cons: Expected the laundry room to be more than just 1 washer and dryer but it got the job done.
Poor 1.0
Pros: Location.
Cons: No hot water for showers. Unbelievable that this hotel is under the Marriott brand...
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Bilingual staff, close to airport, plenty of food options nearby, free airport shuttle
Cons: My room had a horrible view, actually faced a parking lot which was awkward, especially when other people were outside.
Good 7.0
Pros: Hotel was very clean close to airport and next to a Walmart.
Cons: Staff communication.I called multiple times to ask about shuttle service and was never told that after 11p theres no service from airport. Also was never told you have to schedule shuttle service to the airport 1hour before you need it had to take a taxi.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Very helpful and kind front desk staff
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Perfect place to stay for early morning or late arriving flights. Just moments from the airport.
Good 6.0
Pros: near airport, airport shuttle schedule
Cons: The neighborhood was not too inviting. I thought breakfast was complimentary. Staff told me that our rate didn't qualify for complimentary breakfast. Continental was $12 and regular breakfast was $15 or $17. Obviously didn't eat there.
Excellent 9.0
Cons: Front desk staff seemed annoyed everytime I asked a question. I felt because I was not at elite status I was not worth their time.

Cons: No
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Very friendly staff at desk who took time to check me in when they could not find my reservation. Maybe issue with online company I booked through but they still honored my rate.
Cons: Some issues with the hot water at sink and shower. Was either scalding hot or cold. Hard to tune. Not a deal breaker at all though
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Everything about the hotel was just perfect. It was right down the street from airport and the shuttle takes you there every 30 minutes.
Cons: I had family staying on another floor and the elevator only allows you to go to your floor. Good security but too good I guess
Excellent 9.4
Pros: Location near the airport is its main advantage. Inside is peaceful, clean, modern, and comfortable. Front desk staff gave some great advice including that we return our rental car the night before our early-morning flight, and that the rental car shuttle would bring us back to the hotel. This was the best idea and greatly simplified our morning of departure. The hotel shuttle to the airport was quick and efficient.
Cons: The pool is tiny, and tucked away in a back corner. The cafe/restaurant in the lobby is modern and inviting with a great looking menu, however, our waitress was the slowest on the planet. Every step took about 5 times longer than it should have. Even when we finally caught her eye (the place was 90 percent empty at the time), and indicated that we wanted the bill, she took another 10 minutes to finish sorting cutlery before coming over and putting us out of our misery. The food was good, but the service was terrible.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great time at the hotel. Modern, clean, easy to access from the airport.
Cons: No complaints at all
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Close to airport, affordable, queen-sized beds, big enoigh for 4 adults
Cons: Some of the staff wasn't the friendliest, but no one was rude. They were all informative. No complaints!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Close to airport. Great front desk staff.
Excellent 9.4
Pros: Very close to the airport and a free shuttle every 1/2 hour. A good first or last night stay. 6-7 restaurants right across the parking lot.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The price for one night was amazing, and the location to the airport was really convenient. If I had a layover in San Jose - Alajuela I would definitely stay there again.
Cons: Continental Breakfast was not included with the deal I got on Kayak.

Pros: El hotel es.bonito
Cons: El servicio es pesimo

Excellent 10.0
Pros: My stay was very agreeable. The shuttle service to the hotel and back to the airport was great and the was no need to wait more than a few minutes. The hotel and the room are exceptionally clean. I liked that there were timed tickets for the breakfast service and that the number of tables was limited to act against covid-19. The hotel itself is close to the airport but it is also quiet enough to find a spot in the garden to read or relax. The staff was very friendly, during check-in, in the breakfast room and the cleaning staff too. Especially Karen was very helpful in finding a solution for a late check—out.
Cons: Unfortunately, the hotel had billed a wrong room rate but I have received a refund two weeks later.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: I loved how close to the airport it was. Our flight got in at almost midnight and the shuttle runs 24 hours so we were able to get the shuttle to the hotel directly. We only waited about three minutes for the shuttle my understanding is that it runs every 15 minutes. We also had a very early bus ride to the beach the next morning. So the staff was very nice and prepared us to go breakfasts so that we were able to take them with us on our bus to the beach. And the rooms were super clean and comfortable. A perfect place when you have a late flight or earlier transportation. The staff was also super helpful and kind.
Cons: Honestly there wasn’t much to not like about the property. The price is a bit high for one night however it is the standard price for hotels of that quality so we completely understand.
Excellent 10.0

Pros: I can't say a single bad thing about this hotel. Clean, comfortable, convenient. From the front desk check in with smiles snd snacks, to check out with shuttle service to the airport was ALL good.

Pros: Easy check in, location & shuttle service. Travel made easy
Cons: Hotel room smelled like corn chips and chlorine. I think it was the carpeted floors. The linen were fresh however my partner and I noticed the smell through our face masks as soon as we entered the room. They need to ditch the carpet/shampoo more often

A little dated, but spacious rooms, restaurants are okay but pricey in adjoining mall. Service is decent.

Cons: many rooms are on the ground floor. they did move me when I requested it but I would not be comfortable staying on the ground floor in this area.

Pros: Shuttle made it convenient to head to the airport. Also appreciated that we could exchange US dollars for CR colones at the front desk.

Pros: Location
Cons: No
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The front desk staff was amazing! They set up travel to dine at a local restaurant and also provided a grab bag for breakfast because we had to leave for the airport before their kitchen opened. Also, their shuttle runs every half hour unlike other hotels
Cons: The hotel is close to the airport which we requested but the aircraft noise was constant through the night.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Really good breakfast buffet. The hotel staff where really friendly and helpful to me with whatever I needed. They were able to find a rental car for me,in high season at a really good rate. The car was brought to me right to the hotel the very next day.

Pros: Location
Cons: We have stayed in this hotel on 5 occasions. On 3 visits we asked for a wake up call and not once did we receive the call on time or at all.
Good 7.0
Pros: Close to airport. friendliness of staff.
Cons: This is the 5th and 6th time we have stayed at this hotel. Not once have we received a wake-up call on time, if at all. On 3/11/18 our in room clock woke us up one hour too early, 4am instead of 5am.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Overall, everything was great. Location is perfect for flying to the airport. Staff was very helpful and really wants to help you! Room was comfortable and clean. 24 hour shuttle was awesome! Great value for the money. For those who arrive at off hours there is a Denny's close by.
Cons: Our only negative was the breakfast which was very processed (e.g. scrambled eggs were bland) and not enough variety for the cost of that hotel.
Excellent 9.7
Pros: Came in on a late flight to San Jose and stopped off at the Holiday Inn Express for a night before jumping off into the Costa Rican countryside in the morning. For this purpose it did exactly what it needed to do. Shuttle bus that picked up at the airport was a plus.
Cons: A little bit pricey for what you get but not acceptable for one night. The breakfast options were pretty basic but in their defense they were a typical Costa Rican style (gallo pinto, eggs, coffee, and some fresh fruits). Traffic at the intersection in front of the hotel can be horrific so keep that in mind if you will be driving. Also, keep an eye out for the shuttle bus that comes around outside of the arrivals area and stops close to the taxi stand. A "helpful" local showed me where to go then just happened to mention that he works on tips. I could have just waited on my own for it...
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Everything was very good. Friendly staff, good breakfast, good parking. Five nights and all went well.
Cons: The traffic at the entry to the hotel is nightmare.
Okay 4.0
Pros: Bed was comfortable
Cons: The room had a terrible smell. They said you could get wifi in the hotel, but it was really only in the lobby area. The traffic outside is very loud because of a crazy intersection and you can hear planes landing and taking off.

Pros: very attentive
Good 7.0
Pros: v friendly check in staff. Good location close to the airport.
Cons: Room wasn’t very clean. Lots of hairs around the room, bottom corner of the bedsheet was still wet and half used shampoo bottle in the bathroom giving the impression that the cleaning was lacklustre at best. Very basic breakfast although they did give me more bread when I asked. Not great value of money overall
Good 7.0
Pros: nice garden hidden in a rough spot
Cons: noisy
Excellent 8.0
Pros: I received a very warm welcome, unhindered by my shameful lack of Spanish which the Google translation app helped to overcome. My visit felt more like a Homestay from the moment that I arrived. I liked my room which I found to be very clean and comfortable if unusual in that the window faced into a corridor. All the shared areas were colourful functional and homely with a beautifully maintained garden and pool area to the rear of the property. Breakfast was freshly prepared and sufficient but if your idea of a meal is so much that you can't eat it all then you might need a supplement. The friendly environment encouraged contact between the guests which helped relax this solo traveller. This hotel was in my opinion good value.
Cons: I will admit in advance that had I planned better I would probably not have gone to this hotel which is located in a predominantly commercial area with other hotels, small supermarkets and a hoard of vehicle rental companies to choose from. My stay was an overnight layover with a free evening and most of the following day until boarding a domestic flight at 15.00 so it was my fault that it wasn't within comfortable walking distance to explore San Jose city centre. That said I did walk the immediate area and join local families camped out at the end of the runway with picnics and pets to watch planes taking off and landing over our heads at SJO airport. One niggle was USB charging points, just that there could have been more.
Excellent 10.0
Room very clean, no bugs or mosquitos. Nelly and jocelyn made a remarkable job, helpping me with my broken eyeglasses and dinner suggestion, very polite and friendly. Fair enough for what you paid

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Location, enviroment and customer services
Cons: That only stay one day due to my schedule
Good 7.0
Pros: Simple, friendly, clean and pleasant. The best cheaper place close to the airport. Second time for us, and will likely be back again.
Cons: A bit of a pain to get to with a rental car. Taxi not a problem... They know the way...
Excellent 10.0
Pros: the location is excellent and the attention the best!! they where very helpful and very nice!!
Cons: Nothing
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Great and peaceful place to stay after a long trip. The owner is really attentive to the customers. He even woke up at 4a.m. to personally talk with the taxi man who wanted to make me pay extra!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: I was in quite an unfortunate circumstance and the staff was so friendly and helpful. One of them even gave me supper as I couldn't afford to eat at the time. I didn't even ask. He just brought it out of the kindess of his heart. Super close to airport + they have a shuttle service! I loved swimming in the pool and walking around the garden after a stressful day
Cons: Either they don't have hot water or it wasn't working but many places in Costa Rica don't use hot water so it wasn't too big of a suprise. Nice bathtub though
Good 7.0
Pros: Staff, facility and location are exceptional.
Cons: Unfortunately, the restaurant and bar are closed. The hotel also no longer pays for the taxi ride to or from the airport.
Good 7.7
Pros: Perfect hotel for the money. We had three rooms, all with two queen beds for only $92 per room. The staff was exceptionally friendly, the pool and gardens are nice, and the restaurant was one of the best meals throughout our trip. Airport shuttle was on time even with our 3:30am pickup.
Cons: The shower has soap/shampoo and conditioner (I think) attached to the wall. I'll probably avoid the "conditioner" if I stay again.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: the shuttle service to airport worked great

Excellent 9.0
Pros: Great location, in the center and close to the airport. Receptionist very friendly and helpful. Comfortable rooms with A/C, and also a pool with sunbeds.
Cons: The wifi was very poor, actually in the room not even working and neither did the cell data - no coverage in the building so I had to go out the lobby area all the time. Very few channels and only spanish speaking.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Left for airport at 4:00am so didn’t have breakfast. Overall happy with our stay
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Good location, walking distance to many places. Staff was very helpful and free shuttle to the airport.
Cons: A/C system didn't work. No amenities in the room, no glasses or shampoo. It's a nice little hotel that could really be something special with some attention to detail.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Stay here regularly. Love the location as is right in the center of town walking distance to restaurants etc. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Good advice on where to eat etc but also admit when they don't know something. Air conditioning works well and is quiet. Rooms on the courtyard are quiet.
Cons: Sheets don't stay on the bed. Would be nice if they used mattress covers. Also a great addition to the breakfast would be a multigrain bread for toast.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: very clean and easy to access from airport.

Cons: You need an elevator, I am pregnant and getting over a foot and knee injury, if I didn’t have my partner with me I wouldnt have been able to get to my room.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Very nice hotel. Staff was friendly and the swimming pool was pleasant. The room wasn't big but we had a small balcony. Will stay there the next time in Alaruela for sure.
Excellent 8.2
Pros: Convenient location for being in/out the SJO airport. Free transfer that takes 10-15 minutes. The hotel is rather basic, but provides all what a budget traveler needs. There is even a small swimming pool. Good beds, small but nice lobby, good breakfast, clean and well-cared breakfast area. With a very competitive rate (breakfast included), free airport transfer, helpful English/Spanish speaking staff, and several nearby restaurants, it is a good choice for one-night stay for those arriving or departing at San Jose Santamaria airport.
Cons: The rooms are rather dated, yet they are sufficiently clean.
Good 7.1
Pros: Location from airport, comfortable beds, nice staff, included nearby locked + guarded parking, balcony, nice breakfast spread
Cons: Hair on pillow, sink + tub, bathroom needed a good scrub... too many wipedowns w used towels, heavy morning traffic is loud
