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.
My husband and I stayed here for one night during our honeymoon. The hotel itself is nice and cute and reminds you of a wellness resort. However we were the only ones staying inside this hotel so it felt very lonely indeed. The rooms were nice with great views and the bed was comfortable as well. Bathrooms are nice and big and feels cozy. We thought the pool was ready for use but turns out that the pool has been under construction for some time. We did not get any notification of this at the time of booking.
Very friendly hotel staff, run by a family. The brothers speak excellent English. The location is a little bit inconvenient, with noisy airplanes landing and taking off nearby. It is closed within a secured environment and family friendly setting. Overall, it was a very good experience - highly recommended.

"Great villa near the city and outstanding service!"
My husband and I were only there for a few days during the holidays. The room was very nice and clean, nothing negative to say about it. The bed was very comfortable and there is AC if needed. We were impressed by the service, from the front gate to the restaurant. Our server (Thomas) was always very nice and we were surprised to see him both in the evening and early in the morning. The food was delicious especially the breakfast (which is included) with a choice of typical costa rican gallo pinto or continental. Overall, great quality for the price. It is located in Alajuela, close to the airport and we felt safe the whole time.
We arrived at SJO about 10pm, and headed off the next morning so a comfortable clean hotel with a decent breakfast offering was just what we wanted for our one night stay. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice. We did use the exercise room, which was adequate. We'd happily stay here again.
I stayed for two nights in a Junior Suite. The room was quite spacious for two people. The staff at the front desk and in the dining area were very accommodating. The breakfast Buffet was very good. The pool was also very nice.
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.
