Excellent 10.0
Pros: Beautiful exceptional hosts
Excellent 10.0
Pros: We spent our last night in Costa Rica at the Pura Vida Hotel and it was the perfect ending for our trip. We were upgraded at no charge to a larger cabin, a bonus, and there was ample space for three adults. The grounds are lovely with lots of private paths and areas to relax. This place has the most amazing orchids, so beautiful. Breakfast was great, a variety of fruit beautifully presented along with good coffee, fresh juice and wonderful baked goods. We love animals so the friendly dogs were a highlight for us. A short taxi ride to the airport in the morning. Would definitely stay here again.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Everything is wonderful Gardens extraordinary beauty Breakfast delicious This place is the best !
Cons: Nothing
Excellent 10.0
Pros: A unique, quirky and very beautiful garden oasis a very short distance from the international airport. The garden is a dream, the dogs are hilarious, the rooms are huge and luxurious, the staff are wonderful and the breakfast is beautiful and very delicious.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The host was pleasant and accommodating and the grounds were very nicely landscaped
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The setting of this small hotel is charming with individual cottages and porches. Lovely botanical type garden with stone walkways and a stepped down approach to the casitas in the garden. The owners work very hard to provide everything you might need to be comfortable. We loved the leisurely breakfasts on the veranda with the great coffee and blooming orchids. Very peaceful setting. Certainly the best lodging we found in the San Jose area. Definitely recommend.
Cons: More food at breakfast.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: A paradise gem a very short distance from the airport. Lovely friendly people, stunning gardens and gorgeous dogs. Oozing with personality on every level.

Cons: Please review sliding door for bathroom, it is so hard to open
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Pros - Modern hotel/rooms - Diego at the front desk referred us to an awesome club nearby
Cons: Cons - overwhelming sense of humidity in hotel room - smell of mold - front desk offered us a shuttle for $550 USD one way to Jaco. I told him that I had found a comparable shuttle for $150. He explained that that was impossible---that such a price was likely per person. I ended up booking the $150 shuttle for 7 passengers and it was amazing!
Excellent 8.5
Pros: Very different experience as a hotel , sort of a club in a constant happy hour.
Cons: No shuttle to the airport and loud music playing all the time at the lobby .
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Practical, functional, lively young environment, good breakfast and friendly staff.
Cons: AC compresors on roof above the 7th floor are not mechanically isolated. First night was like sleeping (not) with the compresor in the room. Staff acted surprised when I asked to be moved. Really? NO SLEEP ON THE 7th!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: This hotel had it all. I had a long layover and stayed here. It was the perfect place to relax with fabulous ammenities.
Cons: No complaints! I wouldn't have changed a thing!
Good 6.2
Pros: I liked that there was a bar on site and a pool table. The bathroom was spacious.
Cons: The night we stayed there, a DJ was playing loud music in the reception area. I couldn't really hear the woman who was checking us in at the front desk.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: It's modern and with a good location. It feels knew and you'll enjoy the buffet in the mornings. It's definetly for young couples or business travelers
Cons: Parking is very small if you want to be close to the hotel (only about 8 cars). If there are more than that you'll end up parking at another far away parking they share with other buildings. There isn't a swimming pool
Mediocre 2.0
Cons: When we arrived at Aloft, the lobby was packed with people. There was some kind of party going on. The staff told me I they didn't actually have a room for me, despite my reservation. Instead they told us we had to stay at the Hotel Indigo down the street. Indigo was fine, but they charged us more for the room, and it was not the room configuration we reserved at Aloft.

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

Excellent 10.0

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.

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

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.

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 9.0
Pros: It has very big beds to have a comfortable stay after a long flight
Cons: The only minus it’s the canteen. Definitely way above 2 stars canteen but there was slight disorder
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The rooms have been simplified amenities-wise to facilitate cleaning. I feel Like the are doing a great job to minimize contact while still providing great service.
Mediocre 3.0
Pros: Great hotel, great and friendly staff, clean room, all good. So why the low rating? Read on.
Cons: You can't get water in the hotel! This is the strangest thing I've seen, and I've been traveling all over the world for decades. But you literally can't get drinking water in your room. They don't give you any bottles of water for free in your room like most hotels or even have a mini-fridge where they charge for water. You also can't buy water bottles at the front desk. They do have a vending machine with soda and gatorade and flavored water BUT they only take US single dollar bills! And the front desk has very limited change with US singles (and why would they, this is Costa Rica!?). I was told that there is a water dispenser at breakfast I could fill up at night but I needed my own water bottle or container. There is no store or shop nearby just to buy bottled water, so they told me to go to the Dennys or the casino restaurant nearby to buy bottled water. Crazy! And inexcusable.
Good 7.0
Pros: Breakfast was OK considering the Corona regulations. Staff was friendly. We missed English muffins.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The staff went above and beyond to help me prepare all my covid documents for my long flight home. The airport shuttle was super fast. I also appreciated they had laundry on-site, a printer, and fast wifi. The perfect place to stay and get organized before a 30 hour flight home!

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.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Location to airport and super clean
Cons: People next to us were constantly going in and out at late hours at night, just heard door slamming which made it hard to sleep.
Excellent 10.0

Good 6.0
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.

Mediocre 3.0
Pros: The staff were very friendly and accomodating. Check-in was sanitary and easy.
Cons: There was a cockroach in my room and a previous guest's pubic hairs all over the bathroom and shower floor.
Mediocre 2.0
Cons: What a rip-off. The first time I stayed here two weeks ago everything was fine, but what I had to experience today is the way how you loose customers. The lady at the reception couldn’t care less. I just wanted to stay 4 hours to get fresh and change clothes before my long-haul flight. I asked if they could maybe reduce the rate then. I’m not even gonna use the bed. And the answer was no, because I made the reservation via booking. If I would have requested the free cancellation via booking, the hotel would have to confirm it, what they could’ve done now. Booking wouldn’t have charged me a penny, if the hotel was agreeing. So I‘m paying over 100 USD for a 4 hour stay. Next time I’ll go to the holiday inn nearby, they have been much friendlier and helpful the last time I was there. The reception lady even ripped me off 5 USD for the laundry, which she could’ve been giving me without charge of she would‘ve been interested in keeping a customer after this whole farce. Don’t stay here if you care about service!!!!
Good 7.0
Pros: Close to airport and car rentals.
Cons: Everything is very simply. Breakfast is simplest.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: As in my previous stay, all went well. The breakfast was good and they had no problem adding an extra night to the stay when the flight was cancelled. The location is a bit isolated, but normal for an airport hotel.
Cons: The only thing that got me this time was the tag you put on the outside of the door when you leave. One side is red and the other side is green, but BOTH sides say "do not disturb." I was in a rush and did not read that, but placed the green side visible outside the door. The room was not cleaned, of course. Seems like an easy fix to me.
Excellent 8.0
Cons: More food options
Excellent 9.0
Pros: This is very much an "airport hotel." Very well positioned for an overnight stay on arrival or on departure. Very much also an American-style hotel. Basic, but well equipped. Breakfast was excellent. Staff were great and having a mini-snack bar in the lobby (for pay, of course) was a nice convenience. Shuttle from the airport worked perfectly well. Very well done overall.
Cons: Not much to complain about, to be honest. I suppose the water pressure was maybe a little weak, but worked well enough.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Clean room, comfortable beds hot shower, great parking. Staffs are always friendly and helpful. Covid19 testing lab is only around a few minutes away. They send me results in less than 24 hours. Free shuttle to the airport SJO is absolutely plus. I go to Costa Rica a couple of times a year, park and fly is another super option if you have a car in Costa Rica. Special thanks to Allison for your kindness and help with information on the Covid19 testing near the hotel.

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. We even got breakfast to go already packed for us since our plane left in the middle of the night. TV even had adequate english speaking channels. Short walk to Denney's. I wished I had booked the first part of my stay here as well.

Good 7.0
Pros: They don't have a shuttle but they paid for our taxi to the airport. The gentleman at the desk was pretty nice.
Cons: The location was very close to the airport(less than 15 minute drive at 530 am). But there was absolutely nothing around it. We had to walk 20 minutes, crossing an old abandoned rail road track to cross the highway into a neighborhood where we found a place to eat. The on site restaurant was closed for some reason.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The hotel is close to the airport, and the rooms are quite spacious and airy.. The staff are always friendly and helpful.
Cons: For the time being, because of COVID, there is no lunch or dinner served in the hotel (but you can order food in with the. help of the hotel staff).
Good 7.0
Pros: near to the airport and the offer a free airportshuttle
Good 7.0
Pros: Friendly staff. Good service.
Cons: 14 people laid off due to COVID. Room was not as clean as it was before. Restaurant we loved shut down.
Good 7.0
Pros: Very nice hotel for the money. Room was clean and comfortable.
Cons: The area was difficult to drive to/around.
Good 6.0
Cons: Had terrible experience w the taxi arrangements. Usually hotel pays the taxi, but this time all the taxis refused to take me, preferred cash customers.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: beautiful grounds and hotel. Staff is especially accommodating.
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

Pros: Friendly staff and excellent service, especially the airport shuttle..... thank you Barnaby!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Quiet and cosy place to stay. Rooms were ok, the hotel is surrounded by a nice nature. Very good place when you need to get from/to the airport, hotel offers free shuttle bus and it was not problem to manage the shuttle even at 4am. The owner and receptionists are very nice and helpful, good communication with hotel and they gave us better rooms so we could be close within our group of friends.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Wonderful people works there! Very convenient near the airport , they have a shuttle , and even after hours ( I arrive at 1 am) it was quick and cheap to get to the hotel from airport by taxi. It was so nice to be served breakfast - the lady brought it to the table on the terrace next to my room when she saw that I woke up - that was super nice !

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great location close to SJO. Super friendly and relaxing environment if you just landed or are catching your next flight, this is the spot!
Good 6.0
Pros: Very easy to reach from airport, only 1km away. Comfy bed, clean and soft bed linen. Nice garden.
Cons: Not the warmest of welcomes (though I did arrive pretty late - around midnight- to be fair) and the road nearby is super noisy cos of the big trucks that drive past, so earplugs needed (if you’re a light sleeper like me). I thought the cost was pretty high for what it was though and I had to pay cash, not card, when I arrived.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The owners are always very very helpful friendly and accommodating. We arrived very late at night and left for a flight by midnight and the owners were up and helpful. We've stayed twice. Plan to stay again in3 days and will refer our incoming friends.
Cons: All was perfect
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Very close to the airport, just like 5 minutes drive away. Please note that the hotel does NOT arrange a pick-up, only drop-off ! They certainly had me confused. A bit of a hassle after a long flight. Negotiate before you get into a taxi. They asked for 15$ and I ended up paying 5. The hotel has homely rooms, it's clean and quiet. Because of the lack of tourists (Covid you know) I was the only guest. Therefor early breakfast was an issue. Upon arrival the gentleman at the check-in said they could arrange something, but the next morning nothing was available. After some insisting I got coffee, fruits, an egg and some bread. So all fine.
Good 7.0
Pros: Small , basic but clean and close to airport with good typical breakfast and free shuttle to airport . Has a very pretty pool and garden area . . Owner run. They are friendly and helpful . Multilingual so no issues for English only visitors . Supermarkets and various small fooderies in close walking ( ten min ) area.
Cons: Met all expectations except ability to pay directly electronically by credit card ( you can pay but by manual number entry )

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Good value for money and centrally located
Cons: Breakfast wasn’t impressive but you get what you pay for. This is good for a cheap crash paid so I gave it five stars cause it got the job done
Mediocre 2.0
Pros: The shuttle to the airport was on time and very convenient. The price was fair.
Cons: See above Also, they only accepted cash which we were short on.
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
