Excellent 10,0
Pros: The location was a quiet, residential neighborhood. The rooms were nice and clean with a comfy bed. We liked the little garden space attached to the room where my husband did some work. Very nice staff. Stayed here twice- fir an overnight stay. We’ve read that it is owned by a Costa Rican family. When we can we like to support locally owned businesses vs chain hotels.
Excellent 9,7
Pros: Quiet & Quaint hotel, great value. Free breakfast and wonderful views of the golf course and mountains.

Pros: This place is really amazing. We have been here in 2012 before and absolutely loved it. So of course this time in Costa Rica we also came here before our flight back home. It is still stunning. It is so close to the airport but in the huge garden you feel like you are in another world. We had a lot of left over vegetables and stuff like that and Nhi was so nice to make us an amazing dinner from it. She is a really good chef and has a huge herb garden that you should have a look at. Thank you so much!! We are also able to stay a bit longer since our flight is only in the evening. We would highly recommend to stay here when you arrive in San Jose since Berni can give a lot of recommendations on places to go and roads to take. The breakfast is really good and looks nearly too beautiful to eat it. There is secured parking as well. We will come back here on our next trip!

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.

Pros: Beautiful garden with exceptional views at sunset. Nice pool and sweet dog. We loved it and will visit again. For sure! Thanks a lot!
Excellent 9,0
Pros: We chose the place mainly because of the close proximity to the airport, but it is definitely worth staying longer to enjoy the space. It has small and cozy pool with amazing garden view, and the round terrace is super comfortable to relax and watch the nature. The hosts are super positive and friendly, doing everything for you to feel like home! Would definitely recommend this place.
Cons: Nothing
Excellent 10,0
Pros: Great and quiet place, close to everything. Great hosts! Recommended!
Excellent 10,0
Pros: We absolutely loved our time at Hotel Vista Linda Montana! The owners, Burak and Daniel, were incredibly friendly, and provided wonderful service. The breakfast was amazing. They very much embody the "Pura Vida" philosophy and lifestyle. Our room was exceptionally clean and more than worth the price. Their location is a bit out of the city hubbub, which is very nice, and is on a lush property. We only wished we had stayed more nights! We can't say enough good things about Hotel Vista Linda Montana. Highly recommend it!
Cons: Nothing! It was great!
Excellent 10,0
Pros: We really like Daniel and Burak. We were there only for one night but they were kind, helpful and care well about us. Breakfast was fantastic. They have beautiful garden with picturesque mountian view. Room was clean. We only regretted that we couldn't stay longer. It's perfect place to stay near San José.
Cons: Nothing at all.

Pros: A perfect place to wake up our first day in Costa Rica! Beautiful view overlooking the mountainside, a quiet garden to eat breakfast in and enjoy the morning. Simple breakfast was fresh fruit with local cheese and coffee. Our hosts were friendly, the room was clean and spacious. We will definitely return to Hotel Vista Linda Montana!

Excellent 10,0
Pros: We had a lovely stay at the Aloft. The staff are absolutely wonderful, very friendly , and the receptionist went above and beyond when we needed translation for an important phone call. The rooms themselves are very comfortable and vibey. Amazing black out blinds, so many English channels on the tv when we wanted to chill out. Great breakfast served in the morning and parking lot is supervised so we felt comfortable leaving our car overnight. This place checked all our boxes and more so will make this our first choice to stay when we return!
Cons: Nothing it was all perfect.

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.

Excellent 10,0
Pros: This hotel was so convenient to airport next to several restaurants and a Walmart and mall.breakfast was exceptional as was the service.
Excellent 10,0
Pros: Convenient location just a few minutes from SJO airport, I found my room to be impeccably clean, comfortable and spacious with near-silent air conditioning. There are 3 great dinner options immediately outside the front entrance and hotel amenities were excellent with an outdoor pool in the sun, a spacious restaurant/bar area and a convenient lobby area with snacks, drinks, printer and lounge whilst you wait for your shuttle or flight. Excellent stay and I would return again.
Excellent 8,0
Pros: The check-in was outstanding and the team was extremely helpful. Even providing a free drink on arrival! Very welcome.
Cons: Unfortunately, the walls in the hotel are particularly thin and as such, it is possible to hear the alarm of the persons room next door going off very early in the morning. Perhaps staff should consider a separation of rooms particularly in low times that would mitigate this.
Excellent 8,0
Pros: Staff really friendly and helpful
Cons: Walls too thin, could hear alarm clock early in the morning. Also TV too big for the room.
Good 7,0
Pros: Close to airport.
Excellent 10,0
Pros: The hotel provides a free shuttle to and from the airport every hour. This is wonderful since the traffic in San Jose is crazy.
Cons: I always seem to just miss the shuttle from the airport, but that is not the fault of the hotel.
Excellent 9,0
Pros: Really comfortable stay and great shuttle service, literally 3 mins from the airport.
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.

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.

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: Amazing family run inn close to the airport. Highly recommend!
Excellent 9,0
Pros: An amazing little jungle oasis minutes from the airport. Lovely rooms with nice decor and a pleasant terraced restaurant and hang out area. Great gardens with a nice selection of tropical trees and plants with a gushing river just outside the property. Caring owner family always on hand and they also served a good evening meal.
Cons: The swimming pool was clean and great to swim in and in lovely gardens but at some point needs some cosmetic renovations.
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 8,0
Pros: The gardens are beautiful and the hotel staff are very kind and generous. We really enjoyed the restaurant (breakfast is delicious!!). Our toilet had some major issues, not sure if that’s all their plumbing or just our room. Beds were fine, pillows were pretty rough. All in all, it’s the perfect spot for one night if you need t be close to the airport.
Excellent 10,0
Pros: Yea
Cons: Beautiful grounds
Excellent 8,0
Pros: Perfect location close to the airport ! Excellent for short stay . Very Comfortable beds . Excellent food for breakfast and dinner ! Very kind staff - a family owned and managed
Cons: The rooms and the whole atmosphere could have been more cozy and thus inviting for longer stay.
Excellent 10,0
Pros: We love the Robledal. It’s become our landing spot for in and out is SJO. We are a family of 4, two kids, first time we came when they were 5 and 8. They come get you at the airport and drop you off, ability to get some great food in the evening, breakfast is included. Clean pool and a little backyard area with a pond. Kids loved the toad. We saw baby owlets ( no guarantee on that! We got lucky.) I’m all about staying at local hotels rather than big international chains and I recommend this place to all our friends in the US when they pick our brain on Costa Rica.
Cons: Just know that food in CR takes a little longer to cook. It’s fresh and from scratch.
Excellent 8,8
Pros: There's a restaurant that has the feel of a soda on site. Rooms are comfy and staff is very attentive. Perfect spot if you need a place near airport but don't want to stay in an American chain hotel that lacks character.
Excellent 8,8
Pros: Very secure location. Alajuela and San Jose are a bit crowded and sketchy. This is is a suburb of Alajuela. We state there the night before we returned to the United States. It's close to the airport and downtown but in a safe and quiet spot that is not too remote. The staff is really warm and helpful. Great experience. Free airport shuttle as well.
Cons: no complaints

Excellent 10,0
Pros: Excellent communication, easy and free shuttle from the airport. Facilities were very clean and organized. Excellent breakfast with friendly staff. Shops and restaurants within walking distance. Clean and comfortable rooms with cold AC.
Cons: Everything was excellent!
Good 7,0
Pros: Breakfast was great, and the breakfast person was so pleasant and helpful. The shuttles were plentiful and the drivers were friendly. The COVID procedures were maintained and thoughtful. Beds were very comfortable.
Cons: The AC was really loud. Loud even with earplugs (which are essential for an airport hotel). Our last morning we had to leave at 3:30 AM, and I had heard that the hotel would bag up a to go breakfast, but no such luck :(
Excellent 9,0
Pros: Shuttle was excellent, ran very often. breakfast was good, decent array of different foods and staff were all very friendly. Room was great, very clean and spacious.
Cons: Only one thing I could critique was the plane noises but due to the location of this hotel that is inevitable and to be fair the proximity to the airport if you have a flight the next day is more convenient than the noise is inconvenient.
Good 7,5
Pros: Close to airport and nice staff
Cons: Airplanes were loud and shower slippy and not very hot
Excellent 9,0
Pros: I left before breakfast. Shuttle was convenient. lack of a near by gas station did cause some logistics issues when I turned in the rental car.
Cons: lack of a near by gas station did cause some logistics issues when I turned in the rental car.
Excellent 10,0
Pros: I forgot my toothbrush and toothpaste and they were happy to provide me with both at the front desk. That made a difference for me!
Excellent 10,0
Pros: The bed sheets
Cons: No coffee in the room
Excellent 8,0
Pros: Great hotel - super convenient, clean, nice facilities. Helpful staff. The casino and the Dennys are right next door.
Cons: Didn't have water bottles for guests and the vending machines only took US single dollars with no change - weird.
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 6,8
Cons: Bill was mixed up & Never did get our points
Excellent 10,0
Pros: We had a number of special requests and they were very gracious. Check in was a breeze
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: Friendly staff. Easy check in. Convenient location near the airport with a good shuttle service. Since we were leaving very early they had a boxed breakfast for us.
Excellent 8,0
Pros: Super close to the airport. Very clean and nice. They have a shuttle that runs 24/7 to the airport for guests. We had to leave at like 4am for the airport and they had brown bag breakfasts ready for us which was more than I expected.
Excellent 10,0

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.
Cons: Nothing.

Excellent 10,0
Cons: I have stayed at the Hotel Aeropuerto several times and it has been perfect every time. The staff arranged a taxi to pick me up from thr airport and then had then return me, when it was time, at no cost. The location is very useful if you are staying for a short period in or out of San Jose.
Excellent 8,0
Pros: Breakfast was brought to the room as restaurant was closed due to pandemic. Very good with eggs and toast. They also had menus for restaurants to deliver food for dinner.
Cons: Not near a town but seems like most airport hotels.
Okay 4,0
Pros: Water pressure/temp of water in shower was good. Also, got a call at 3:30am in my room as I requested a ride to the airport. The driver dropped us off at the int'l terminal, but then we said we had to get Covid tested which was at the airport, but 10 mins away, so he accommodated our request and dropped us there instead.
Cons: Cleanliness. Cobwebs, cockroaches, dirty sheets. The restaurant on site was closed at 8:30pm when we arrived.
Excellent 10,0
Pros: The staff was excellent. The patio and garden were wonderful.
Cons: The location was desolate. Not a walking neighborhood, but it is close to the airport, and that is what we needed.
Okay 5,0
Cons: It's an older facility and is showing its age. Restaurant closed due to covid and not re-opened yet. The proprietor was very friendly and helpful but the place has a bit of an "abandoned" feel. I likely would not stay there again but it was fine to spend the night before flying onto the peninsula in CR.
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

Poor 1,0
Pros: It’s located near the airport. The well in the yard was the only acceptable decoration.
Cons: The bathroom have an unpleasant odor and bad appearance. All of the place needs a deep cleaning and maybe remodeling some common areas. In the room I saw mold, stains in the bedroom sheets, etc. The breakfast was awful. The pictures about this place, aren’t accurate to the reality of what I saw there. There are better places like Hotel Plaza Cultura in San José (20 min distance to the airport), with better prices and facilities.
Okay 5,0
Pros: Breakfast was decent,staff was super friendly,close to airport.
Cons: It's gated, but in a bad neighborhood. No hot water in the morning. Needs a lot of repairs, renovations,and gnats removed. It's a budget motel,for the price it was ok.
Excellent 10,0
Pros: Great staff, especially Danita and Brandon.
Excellent 8,0
Pros: The hotel is a quiet oasis and a perfect pit stop in San Jose. Great restaurant and staff. Location is good and fellow travelers were friendly.
Cons: The bathroom was a little stuffy upon arrival; it had been cleaned but not aired out.
