Very nice luxury hotel. Each room has a beautiful view of the city below. Rooms were nicely furnished and clean. We enjoyed the trails and waterfalls. Staff was excellent. Restaurant reasonably priced for upscale hotel. We had a great couples massage from the spa.

A secluded enclave near the international airport, with beautiful grounds. Rooms are good, staff attentive and pleasant. A good choice as a base for San Jose, or as a first or last night stay after flying in or before flying out of Costa Rica.
We Have stayed here many times and know personally quite a few staff and the owners. This hotel is, for us, just right. The atmosphere is much like Costa Rican hotels in the days before there were so many tourists. Close to the airport with free shuttle service, excellent restaurant, clean, quiet rooms, nice garden area. Most of the staff have worked there for many years, which says a lot. The hotel is not close to downtown Alejuela and further still from San Jose. Probably not for those who want all the touristy conveniences of the big North American style hotels, but we definitely do not want that, and much prefer the family friendliness of Hotel Aeropuerto. Thank you Hector, Marcela, Gerardo, Christian, Rosa, Firdous, Luis, and others as well as owner Gema and family.

Everything was great with the Pure Vida Spa and Yoga Retreat. The one big problem is that if a person goes on their website it says all meals are included. But, if you book through EXPEDIA the meals are not included and you will receive a whooping extra charge per meal eaten there. Be ready to pay more than expected.
The view is great and there is a very nice coffee field right across from the property which made for a very senic run and walk.
Staff was extremely accommodating. They went out of their way to assist us with rental car return. Also offered to let us know when our dinner was ready in the restaurant so we could clean up upon arrival.
Rooms were clean - slightly outdated. Hot water took its time coming but was plentiful.
The big draw was that it was minutes from the airport. It was much nicer than we expected, great staff (but it took a while for questions because all in line at the reception desk had many questions, including us), transportation to dinner and the airport was great. If traveling to San Jose we would definitely be back to the Holiday Inn Express for an interim hotel near the airport before or after our destination. The breakfast was healthy and fresh including fruit.
The city of Alajuela is in Alajuela province, 20 km (13 mi) northwest of San Jose and just 3 km (2 mi) north of Juan Santamaria International Airport. Many visitors to Costa Rica stay here on their way in and out the country. Colonial architecture is still evident in the city center. The central market, covering an entire city block, is a great place to buy souvenirs.
