I was returning to Canada, my vacation was over. I was staying 100 km south of the airport in a surf village named Jaco, and my flight was at 6:00 A.M. (had to be at the airport by 4:00 a.m.) I decided I would pick a hotel nearby to the airport, and my search brought me to Casa Eukaria. No elevators , maybe 5 ground floor rooms. My first impression was 'eureka, I found gold in Eukaria! " the decor came from their heart, not from a decor book. Peaceful, relaxing, elegant and tasteful, and comfortable, well I felt at home. When I met the owner, instantly I said " you should double your price and do some serious advertising because you have a gem here ! cleanliness, proximity to airport, maybe 3 km, and instead of wake-up service, Steve actually drove me to the airport at 4;00 A.M..There is a certain degree of stress level involved in travel, specially air travel and anything that can be done to detract from the chaos of airports, gets high marks in my books They went above and beyond the norm to make me feel like I was already home. It's more than a hotel, it's home away from home .And did I mention that they made breakfast for me at 4:00a.m., included in price, must I say more? Highly recommended.
