We arrived late at SJO and opted to stay at this hotel in Alajuela for one night before moving to San Jose. The driver picked us up from the airport for $12. He was on time and the instructions to find him were detailed. The grounds of the hotel are very nice... lush gardens and birds. The breakfast was good and was included in the price. The room (with ceiling fan), beds, and bathroom were fine, though we did hear some traffic in the morning. The wifi is free but is only available in the restaurant/pool area. This hotel is not within walking distance of the center of Alajuela. The price on the website does not include the 13% tax. The tour company associated with the hotel runs private tours for guests. The prices are reasonable for groups 4 or larger but I would consider them to be expensive for groups <4.
