"Nice hotel."
I had a very late check-in at midnight and left for a flight at 5a, so I didn't get to see all the facilities, but the front desk staff were very friendly and the property/room were in great condition.

"Great little cabins in the mountains"
Very nice cabins up above Grecia. Well equipped, refrigerator, hot plate, microwave, coffee pot, utensils, and selection of glasses. Very clean. Large bathroom with good hot water and water pressure. Great breakfast with homemade papaya jam. Nicely landscaped grounds with a chilly pool. Set behind a coffee plantation. My only complaint is there is no restaurant, the only one in walking distance is only open for dinner on Friday and Saturday. You do not want to drive the roads from Grecia to the hotel at night. Eat a big lunch and bring food to the hotel for dinner during the week.

"Great B&B; very welcoming owner/manager."
People who stay at a B&B are generally looking for an experience that differentiates itself from a hotel stay. Roberto, the owner/manager, runs a fine establishment. Although you'll need to get cabs into the city, Escazu provides a much quieter setting and a respite from a busseling city that is a must see. If Roberto offers pick up from the airport, accept it. David, the driver, is a good guy. Also, and exceptionally helpful, is a cell phone that Roberto may offer you for the duration of the stay. Trust me, as we found out, better to have a cab company on speed dial that knows the B&B's location than not.

"A Little Gem near the Airport in San Jose"
This place is a little gem near the airport in San Jose. Don't let the neighborhoods on your way there scare you. Some are a bit sketchy but when you drive through the gate into this hotel, it's like you've entered a different world. Beautiful landscaping and large tropical trees, nice pool and extraordinary outdoor dining. The food is excellent, including the free breakfast. It was actually some of the best we had in our 10 day trip. The rooms could use some sprucing up, especially the bathrooms and the room amenities are a little sparse so make sure you bring your own shampoo, etc. However, these small drawbacks are overshadowed by the grounds and architecture of the rest of the hotel. You can always stay in a chain hotel as most are there near the airport but when you stay here, you start your Costa Rican experience before you've even left the airport. By the way, the major car rental companies like Alamo , National, etc. will drop off and pick up your car right at the hotel for $15 I believe. I did pickup at the airport at 2:00 AM and then went to find the hotel. Take a cab and have them bring the car to you. Well worth the $15 in my opinion.The hotel also has 24/7 security to let cabs, etc. in and out through the gate to support flight times and 2 AM arrivals like ours.

"15 days staying...."
We spent 2 weeks in this hotel. The location of the hotel is good: a lot of restaurants and shops around. The cleanliness of the hotel is perfect, staff was friendly and helpfull, the set up and variaty of breakfast is exellent. Tv can be a little bit bigger and wifi can be stronger. We enjoyed staying there and recomend this hotel not only for weekend but for a long period.

Hotel Buena Vista

Road 130, 9 kms north from the airport, Alajuela - Map
 
 
My husband and I stayed at Hotel Buena Vista for 2 nights and had an excellent experience. We had originally only booked one night and planned to stay there the day before we left Costa Rica, but bad weather at another location led us to call Hotel Buena Vista the day before our stay to see if they had any availabilities for another night. They were very helpful, spoke perfect English, and booked us a beautiful balcony room that very day. The parking area felt very safe, the staff were smiling and happy to help us find activities in the area. The rooms are spacious, and it was cool enough even in July that we didn't mind there was no A/C. The first night we stayed in a room in the main hotel, and the walls are a bit thin. There was a large tour group staying at the hotel and we could hear them during dinner and whenever they entered/exited their rooms. Our second night was completely noise-free though. We upgraded to a private villa (there are 5 on property). We had a huge room with 2 beds, 2 couches, a private screened in porch overlooking San Jose. We ate dinner on property that night, huge portions and good quality. It only took us about 20 minutes to get to the airport from the hotel, but you would never know you were so close with how private the grounds feel. We will definitely stay again when we return for our next trip!
