6,0 Good
Pros: Booked via web at 66,000 colons £133 was taken from my personal account And bill was 116 dollars confirmed / the price stated 66,000 colons was not stated again as you have to scroll down page to confirm booking with no final price - I felt this was a conn - staff said that’s the price you were confirmed by email and that it was too late even though I showed them the price still advertised Plus they took more money than room cost to which reception said they take more money in. Awe you gave extras - I did not have extras and still await promised credit. This was misleading at best so very disappointed and know understanding was given by staff C. D Rodney

Cons: I accept that being an “Express” hotel means the level of some facilities will be lower than a normal hotel, but eating breakfast with disposable cutlery and plates was a disappointing experience given that it probably was unnecessarily frugal, and detracted from the otherwise satisfying experience.

8,0 Excellent
Pros: Airport shuttle. Courtesy of all employees, Dinner and lunch. Craft beers, Pool, Air conditioning. Proximity to airport.

8,8 Excellent
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.

Pros: The staff were exceptionally welcoming. We had had a bad landing and had to look after a terrified cat who had soiled her cage and they were very understanding about this. The place is very tranquil which we badly needed after travelling and the room very pleasant. Wish we could have stayed another day to rest up.
Cons: I can't think of anything. The location might not work for people who have stuff to do in Alajuela and the cab from the airport is more than for an in-town hotel but it served our purposes.
10,0 Excellent
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!

Overview Reviews
With a stay at Tiquicia Lodge in Vara Blanca, you'll be within a 15-minute drive of La Paz Waterfall Gardens and Braulio Carrillo National Park. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Location and lovely grounds, views, flowers and birds and a very reasonable cost makes this a winner when visiting Poas volcano and/or la Paz waterfalls park ( only 3 km away). Staying near or in the cloud forest so close to these attractions was a delight of our trip to Costa Rica. This hotel is a family run business and everyone is helping each other run it. All of the family wants their guests to have a good experience, some speaking English better than others. The father gave us a ride to and from the waterfalls park for a minimal fee and he drove us to the airport for free ( @ one hour) as promised in their ad. It was @ $60 for a private taxi to the hotel but we missed having to take a tour from San Jose and got to stay in the rain forest so it was well worth it. Each room is rustic and charming with fireplaces and views.
Cons: Responses to our emails were not as quick as we would have liked. Otherwise they were accurate.
7,0 Good
Pros: We like the location, room and landscaping! We love how peaceful and quiet is the area. Breakfast was good.
Cons: It says included heating but it didn't. And when I asked for that, they mentioned they didn´t have any more available. We had a freezing night! Around 10° C
9,0 Excellent
Pros: A lot of space in the room! Nice colour for the decoration
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Set in a beautiful location where staff couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful. Gardens around main reception/restaurant are lovely. Breakfasts are tasty and plentiful. Accommodation is basic but clean. Staff shuttled us back and forth from chalet to restaurant whenever we needed and offered whatever tours or transport you would want in the area, including arranging our airport pick up. Lovely area with scenic drives, waterfall gardens, Poas volcano etc
Cons: The chalet is very far from the restaurant/anything - not walkable. Whilst the staff happily shuttled us back and forth until our rental car arrived we initially felt isolated. Once we got the hang of it it was fine but it would have been better if this was made very clear at the time of booking so we could be prepared. e.g. On our first night/morning we were stuck in the chalet with no bottled water, milk, food etc until the arranged pick up for breakfast at 9am and due to jetlag and with a child in our group we were up early. It isn’t a criticism of the lodge regarding the set up, more that we just needed to know in advance what the situation would be.

It’s located behind a gate in a not so nice looking area. There is nothing to really walk to. My husband does not want to leave our stuff unattended in the room and he refuses for us to walk outside of the gates. The wifi is terrible!!! It rarely works . Left for Breakfast and returned to the room. Somehow the room smelled awful . Don’t know what’s up with that but we opened the door. Thankfully we leave very soon. It’s extremely noisy from the street traffic and the noise from planes landing is loud. I could hear the people in the room next to us also. I only stayed here to catch a flight. If this is your first visit to Costa Rica, don’t stay here. There are better hotels.

Pros: This is a lovely little hotel, perfect for a couple of days to relax after a long flight to San Jose. Breakfast was the same for 3 mornings but good with eggs and gallo pinto, bread fruit etc. Cocktails were lovely. Evening dinner was also good. Staff were mostly attentive, perfect if you prefer to be left alone. Pool area was lovely although did lack loungers in our opinion. It wasn't a problem as was quiet at the time.

It was a lovely first night in CR.

9,0 Excellent
Pros: This was the cutest little hotel and the staff was absolutely fantastic, so fun and friendly to be around in the little restaurant/bar area. My room was exceptionally clean and the bed and linens made for a fantastic sleep. Everything worked perfectly, Didn't get to use the pool or explore the area due to heavy rains but it was still a great stay. I would definitely go back and recommend this place for the overall value. An added bonus was that the wake up call and the free shuttle were 100% punctual.......right down to the minute, which was a nice surprise as this often hasn't happened in my travels at other hotels. The driver even made me a coffee at 3:30 a.m. Great little hotel and will return again!!
6,3 Good
Pros: Friendly people - especially the restaurant man.
Cons: My particular room was Noisy room (#3) - the “window” was to the corridor where people walk past and on this particular night there was someone making ghastly noises (like they were spitting) until midnight! there was an automatic air spray dispenser in the bathroom that was nauseating (I managed to turn it off) and I wasn’t convinced my sheets were clean as I inspected them and found a hair under the pillow (only a single hair).
9,0 Excellent
Pros: The Berlor is ideal as a base to arrive at the airport, the car rental company Adobe Car Rental is almost next door and is situated about five minutes from the airport. Staff are very helpful and friendly, almost all spoke English, and helped us enormously. Meals are available and the breakfast is superb! Very comfy bed, aircon, private bathroom, all A1. Fully recommended.
Cons: not a lot really!

5,0 Okay
Pros: The receptionist was very accommodating, kind, and helpful. The rooms were spacious and close together. We rented several rooms to fit our large family, and they even threw in an extra room for our grandparents who were traveling with us. The restaurant was delicious and fresh, and so nice, as we were on our last night in San Jose, leaving early in the morning and didn't have a lot of cash to call a cab. The location is a little remote and it was nice to have a good restaurant on site. Also, the receptionist was very helpful in calling a cab for us the next morning. He gets 5 stars for his hospitality and helpfulness!
Cons: The mattresses and sheets were quite worn. There were ants in one bedroom. The vibe of the hotel is very laid back and nice but honestly, it could use a little more in depth maintenance to really get it nice. It may have been the season but there were large spiders everywhere you looked in the trees. The hotel itself and awning area were spider free but it was pretty creepy to look up and see them.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: This place is a secret treasure on a hill next to a coffee farm. So close to Alajuela but without the chatter of some of the other convenient locations. There are nice gardens, a pool, & restaurant on site. The resident cats are cute & friendly.
