Hotel Aeropuerto Costa Rica
Ranked #12 of 27 Hotels in Alajuela
Reviewed 6 January 2013

Just a few minutes ride from the airport. Take the orange taxi and the hotel will pay your cab fair. Our flight left at 0600 and they had shuttle waiting for us at 0400. Secured/attended parking lot if you have a rental car. Restaurant had excellent food. The hotel staff were VERY friendly and helpful. David gave great directions for driving to Playa de Samara.

Dear Tim, thank you for staying with us, is very good to know the transportation from the airport on you first night and to the airport on you second night went smooth. The restaurant indeed has excellent food and of course will pass your comment to the kitchen staff, we are proud of our customer service and will keep working on making it even better.
Personally it was a pleasure to interact with you and giving you directions was not a problem. Hope to have you back in the hotel.

Regards,

David Delgado

Not quite on the airport but certainly very accessible on arrival - you just grab any orange cab, a ten minute ride (or will be once they've finished the Route 1 roadworks) and the hotel pays the cab fare. The hotel is a little tired in decor but quite comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was authentic Costa Rican style - gallo pinto etc - but no US-style option if that's what you're looking for. Didn't use the pool but it looked nice enough. Would recommend this hotel for first or last overnight on a tourist trip to Costa Rica.

Dear Magellan76, thank you for recommending Hotel Aeropuerto for the first and last nights in the country. I’m sorry about the roadwork and hope to be finished within this month. We will keep working on the décor of the rooms and thank you for pointing out the friendliness of our staff, they are constantly trained to provide the best service to our guests in order to make them always happy. At the moment we do not provide U.S style breakfast, but will contemplate to start serving it in the near future. For the moment we will continue serving the Costa Rican Style buffet breakfast with fruits and cereals and if by any reason any customer wants to have other option we would like to be advised before their arrival so we can attend their request in a prompt manner. Make sure next time to use our pool, is very refreshing in sunny days.

Regards!

I spent a week at the hotel when I visited Costa Rica and found the hotel to be top rate. They have a beautiful pool, the rooms are clean, not overly fancy and best of all, have air conditioning (a wonderful change from the jungle). The staff is awesome. They are accomodating in every way, arranging trips for sightseeing, finding cabs and getting rates at any time of the day or night. The hotel restaurant has a fabulous continental breakfast with eggs, rice, beans, fruit and assorted juices. The waiters are helpful and will remember favorites if you order them regularly. Food was good. Free computer access makes this extra great! I'd stay again and it's very close to the airport so that makes it convenient in that way as well.

This is a great hotel to start and end a trip to Costa Rica with! The rooms are spacious, hotel staff very friendly and the food in the restaurant great! Who can beat a free hot breakfast and free transportation to and from the airport? I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice hotel close to the airport!

Hi all,
On my very first trip to Costa Rica, I found hotel Aeropuerto by dumb luck. The luck was dumb, the chouce was not. Before I moved here, I stayed there more than a few times. A comfortable room, a great restraunt, and friendly and helpful people. Whatever it is that you want to see and do in Costa Rica, just ask them. You won't be disapointed, I wasn't. Even now as a resident I sometimes stop by for a great meal.

Checked into this hotel the night before our return flight to USA. True--very close to airport---but that's all I can say on a positive note. Room smelled. A huge bug crawled across the floor which prompted my friend and I to sleep in our clothes, on top of the covers. Very disappointing!

Dear RileysMom1973 we are very sorry for the bug that crawled on the floor, first you have to understand we are located in Costa Rica (bugs are everywhere) we do fumigate the rooms periodically and the maids are trained to check everywhere to avoid situations like this but unfortunately that one bug got away from the daily check and your stay was disrupted by it. Also regarding the smell you refer in your review we have strict controls over the cleaning in the rooms and we are very sorry to know your room wasn't smell free, please accept our humble apologies.
