The hotel sign is not big enough and its very hard to find, specially if you are driving at night into San Jose. Crazy traffic in San Jose and very poorly marked avenues and streets, makes it very hard drive into the hotel. Once you enter the hotel, it is indeed very nice, and the grounds are very pleasing. The staff is extremely accommodating and very helpful. The rooms are nice and very spacious, no AC on the rooms, but not too bad, San Jose is usually cool at night. Airport is very near for convenience.
"Wonderful hotel, just 20 minutes away from airport"
Villa rooms are extremely spacious with high ceilings, a large balcony and a terrific view. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Features a jungle like short hiking path. Has free transportation from and to the airport. Includes breakfast which is good. Very nice owner who cares about the property. Extremely good deal for the price. Would definitely return.
The grounds are lush and beautiful with chickens and roosters running around. So neat!
We spent alot of time at the pool. I especially enjoyed the waterfall and all the tropical greenery.
The restaurant served great meals. The Tico breakfast was the best with made to order eggs, rice and beans, fresh fruit. Coffee started at 5am. Our favorite dinner was the beef tenderloin.
The entire staff was super friendly and always ready to help and answer questions. I visited Territorio de Zaguates but needed a translator on the phone. The hotel receptionist spent over a half hour trying to organize my visit with them.
Also, someone would come to our room and ask if we wanted dinner because the restaurant was closing soon. So thoughtful! They'd also find us when our dinner was ready. Good people!
I would absolutely stay here again. Just felt at home when we were there!
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.
