Stayed here for 1 night as we arrived late in San Jose. Coming out of the SJO airport is quite hectic - TONS of cab drivers all yelling at your for your business. It was overwhelming so it was nice that this hotel pre-arranges transportation to bring you back to the hotel (that is Free). Overall hotel serves it's purpose... More

My husband, who left the day before I did, kept insisting that I stay at the tried and true Marriott in Alajuela. However, I stubbornly wanted to stay closer to the airport and wanted hassle free transportation to the airport at 4:30 in the morning, so I elected to stay at the Aeropuerto Hotel which met my needs. Immediately upon... More

This was a convenient and affordable choice for a short overnight stay near the airport. Orange cabs were easy to catch at the airport and paid for by the hotel upon arrival. Room was clean and offered A/C. Hotel staff arranged return trip to airport in the morning. Delicious typical Costa Rican breakfast offered before departure. It was just what... More

this is the only time in Costa Rica where I was very pleasantly surprised with a value of anything besides the cost of Uber. This hotel is simply very good value. Rooms are rather modern, clean, spacious. Everything works. Free shuttle to the airport is very good and takes only 7-9 minutes. You get a very good hotel for 1/3... More
