My wife and I stayed her on our last night in Costa Rica (boo!) and it was wonderful. The owner let us use the internet and skype and whatever we required to ensure we and the airline had our flight all sorted out. We had the opportunity to share travel stories with another pair of travelers before we retired to our cozy room. The breakfast was fantastic: homemade sausage, plentiful fruit, eggs, & homemade muffins. The price was unbelievably low for the personal service. We enjoyed sitting in el centro of Alajuela before our flight; much calmer than anywhere in San Jose, but still with a central american charm.
We were on an adventure vacation, so we enjoyed any and all adventures, but be aware if you get a taxi from San Jose, they may not know where they are going. This taxi driver, despite us having directions in spanish, his talking to every local on the way and the owner of the hotel twice on the phone, could not find it, until the owner came out of the BandB and flagged us down. It really is in a residential neighborhood, which adds to the charm but may make it more of a challenge to get to in a taxi. For us, this just added another story to our wonderful honeymoon tale.
