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!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Beautiful grounds, very private, excellent breakfast included with room.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: As always this property is clean, comfortable, convenient, great customer service, great security, and helpful staff. And so much more!
Cons: Convenient location, great staff, comfortable and clean.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Closeness to the airport and free shuttle
Cons: Breakfast was an extra charge.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Great location, shuttle service (they’ll even make quick stop by the mall), delicious breakfast/coffee, clean, clean, clean, did I say the hotel is very well kept? Super friendly staff! Also, unplanned last minute front desk person suggested a day tour/expedition, in which the company picks you up and drops you off right at the hotel! It was awesome! They took us to a coffee farm, Poas volcano, and La Paz waterfall in between quick stop at the local strawberry farm shop…it included breakfast and lunch. We had a great time!!! Even made new friends! I highly recommend it! There’s also about 4 or more restaurants a few feet away from the hotel and a Walmart also walking distance. They are also expanding, building a brand new extension to the hotel. If ever in CR again will be definitely staying here again.
Cons: There was nothing not to like. I liked it all!
Okay 5.0
Pros: Location near the airport is convinient. Shuttle to the airport is fast and the driver was very proffesional.
Cons: Water it the shower was cold and the water pressure very low. Brekfast buffet was the worst that I have seen in Costa Rica. Food quality was low and the staff was never around so we had to wait for everything.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Staff was very nice, helpful, and accommodating. Breakfast was great! The pool is small but there wasn't a lot of people there so it was fine. Would go there again!
Cons: When you have guests that speak English but their spouse speaks Spanish, it would be respectful for you to speak English when speaking to them. Especially when the Spanish speaking spouse says he speaks English out of respect for his spouse.
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.

Pros: Expected quality of Martiott
Cons: No

Pros: Staff are fantastic: welcoming and professional. Perfect for the airport. Good fitness room.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great staff, convenient to airport, good restaurant
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 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 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

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.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great hotel, quite close to the airport. The staff was amazing, super helpful and the pool was great as well. We enjoyed the breakfast, it was very rich and tasty. Rooms are clean and not noisy. Ideal place to stay for stopover.
Excellent 8.5
Pros: Close to airport, and car rental locations, friendly staff, and hotel nice and clean. Excellent, efficient and convenient shuttle service for both car rental return and ride to airport. Was very nice to not have to worry about any of the transportation. The closed in compound creates a nice, oasis feel in a dense urban area. Would stay here again first or last night. Close to Alejuela and convenient drive to Poas Volcano and views of San Jose.
Cons: Very small room for 2 adults and 2 kids trying to pack up after a lovely vacation. Bed “and breakfast” usually means breakfast is included and not just available, but was the second time we noticed this in Costa Rica. So just be aware of this trend if you are on a tight budget. Still would recommend this spot for its location, friendliness and cleanliness.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great location, with a free shuttle to airport. Restaurant serves unbelievable meals. They are very accommodating. Not a whole lot to do in area though.
Excellent 9.1
Pros: The place is beautiful. Clean. Close to airport. Had shuttle that will pick you up at airport. Has a restaurant/bar. Beautiful pool. Perfect place to rest after & before traveling.
Cons: There wasn't anything I didn't like. But it is in a neighborhood that I was not prepared for when in your mind your coming to paradise Costa Rica. It is in the middle of a city neighborhood.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Free airport shuttle 24/7
Mediocre 2.0
Cons: Upon traveling by bus all day to San Jose for my flight out the next morning, I get to the airport to call for my hotel shuttle... and am told there are no rooms for me, the hotel was overbooked. It's 8pm and I'm tired and hungry - the receptionist tells me to come to the hotel through their shuttle and they'll help me find another room. After waiting longer than she said it would take, the shuttle finally arrives and takes me to La Riviera. The lady at the front desk is nice and tells me that they've gotten me a room at comparable hotel right behind theirs. By the time I am finally shuttled over there and checked into my room it is nearly 10pm - too late for me to mess with any other arrangements for a room upon discovering that the room is NOT comparable in any way!! La Riviera looked nice with AC, flatscreen TV, a pool, free breakfast, style... my 'comparable' room, which was two dollars more even, was a hole-in-the-wall hotel down pretty much an alley. The room was a mess with multiple beds (one a bunk bed), AC or TV didn't work - it was a local family room - and no offense to that, but it was a room I'd NEVER pay $70 in Costa Rica for! I signed up to pay that amount for a nice, classy looking room in a hotel with gardens and ambiance! I felt taken advantage of and ripped off, and upon expressing this to the lady at the new hotel was met with nothing but the offer to find another room. Really?! It was too late and I was exhausted!! I wish either Kayak or La Riviera wouldn't have overbooked their rooms OR the lady would have been honest about the 'comparable' room so I could have found another at the airport before being shuttled to their nook in the huge city and essentially locked in at a late hour. This hotel looked super nice, it's a shame! I would never stay here though because of this experience.

Pros: Lovely open air lobby and breakfast area
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.
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 9.0
Pros: Location to airport just right, cannot beat the value, staff is really friendly, great and helpful (plus staff speaks English well), it is a real breakfast with eggs, fruit, cereal, milk, juice, etc. They even pay for the cab ride to and from the airport. We stay here every time with have to spend the night in San Jose.
Cons: Nothing.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Easy to get to/from the airport, especially thanks to the free taxi service. Beds were very comfortable and the sheets smelled great. But the walls are very thin and there was quite a bit of noise at nice. Breakfast is adequate, nothing special.
Cons: There should be a rule about keeping noise down at night.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The hotel is very convenient to the airport , the room was cozy had Tv and a comfortable bed . They keep the place spotless . They provide a good breakfast and airport shuttle .
Cons: I liked it pretty much
Good 7.0
Pros: This is downtown basically a corner of a city block converted into a hotel, there is a bank with ATM within 2 blocks walking and 3-4 blocks walking to many restaurants and fast food places. I had to be at the airport at 6am so no breakfast for me... for the money its average. The room is comfortable and cheap, there was a swimming pool I didn't us. Staff was friendly and courteous. Morning shuttle on the hour starting at 3am ? to the airport. I took the 5am shuttle. It was there at 5 and did not wait long once I was in the van. service as promised.
Cons: It was very annoying that they don't take credit cards, and its cash only. (this means if you reserved with a credit card on booking, you can't use that the pay for the room) I happened to have $40 cash to pay, but if I had not I would have been forced to walk to an ATM to take cash out, two blocks from the hotel. They said it was in the fine print on the web page but I would never have stayed if I had known that they did not take credit cards. This should be offered as an additional cost for the safety and comfort of your guests.... as in "you get $5 off if you pay cash" but no such option is available. You get one free ONE WAY trip from / to the airport. So I got the free taxi to the Hotel from the airport, but then had to pay an extra $5 to return the next morning for my flight. Breakfast starts at 6:30 but my flight leaves at 7am, so I could not have breakfast and nothing is offered before 6:30, no coffee or anything.
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
