A Convenient, Pleasant Urban Oasis
This "grand" complex proved to be an excellent one-night conclusion to our month-long stay in CR! The setting, service and security exceeded usual urban-San Jose expectations. And its location just a few kilometers from the major airport made it quite convenient as a preparation point the night before air travel. The food tasted quite good, with very reasonable pricing; eating in the open-air restaurant was more than "lovely." And the pool and colorful grounds were well maintained. The huge trees and nearby river cooled the "compound" with breezes, so that the lack of air conditioning wasn't a major factor. However, planes taking off from the nearby airport made us question at times whether to keep balcony doors open or closed. This unique facility has been termed "an oasis" by many, including those we met from several countries. The delightful owner-manager couple have dedicated themselves to making anyone's stay an enjoyable experience. With this hotel's setting and only eight rooms, consider making your reservations far in advance.

Great place, but close to planes taking off
This is a lovely place. It was more "in the city" than we anticipated from the name. Still, it's a lovely large property, very beautiful. We arrived very late due to a flight delay. The night security guy(?) met us, but spoke no English and my poor Spanish wasn't understood by him. Nevertheless, we he knew our room, helped us carry our heavy bags upstairs (would have been good to know we were on the 2nd floor, no elevator), and booked us in for breakfast. He left before we could tip him. The room was spacious and comfortable, but noisy due to being so close to the airport. I was woken frequently during the night by the sounds of planes taking off. Breakfast was fabulous! Large, Costa Rican typical breakfast, and excellent service. We'd go back, but I'd bring earplugs.

Good place for an overnight stay before a flight.
Nice place to overnight before a flight. Pretty grounds, friendly staff. No AC which was not an issue. A bit of plane noise since it is close to a runway.

Quaint Inn convenient to SJO International airport
We chose this hotel for an overnight stay to be close to SJO International airport for an early morning departure. It met our needs perfectly and the price, in my opinion, was exceptional for the quality of the inn. It is close enough to the airport runway to hear the planes coming and going, but not not excessively loud. If you are a light sleeper, you might want to wear earplugs or listen to music to buffer the sound. Had we been looking for accommodations to sit poolside all day or on the balcony, this would have been a peaceful retreat (other than the airplanes). We enjoyed dinner outside on the veranda. The menu included dishes one would expect to find in a moderately upscale restaurant. Not just Costa Rica comida tipico (rice, beans, simple salad and meat) If we want to stay overnight close to the airport again, I would book at the Trapp Family Country Inn again

Beautiful, Very Safe & So Accommodating!
The staff was wonderful, so friendly and accommodating. The rooms were beautiful, and we really liked them. The only thing I think that they could add would be air conditioning to the rooms. Other than that everything was magnificent! We really appreciated the security gates and the guard on duty 24 hours. We felt very safe. We can highly recommend!

Recommended but with a caveat
Great little hotel a few minutes drive from San Jose airport. Very friendly staff, and both breakfast and dinner were of high quality. There are also cats & cockerels running around, providing entertainment as they are rather territorial. One thing to be aware of is that it’s situated at the end of the runway, hence there is aircraft noise. If you are a light sleeper (I sleep like a log) you should consider other options.

Nice Hidden Gem
Great place to stay, the staff was very friendly and always willing to help, the food was excellent and good portions. The only drawback is it is very near the airport runway and you can hear the jets revving up the engines before takeoff, hence the lower overall. I would stay there again
