    Perfect little airport hotel
    This hotel does a fantastic job with the location it has. Once inside the hotel grounds you would never know you were in a crowded, bit on the rundown housing track. You will hear the airplanes but they did not bother me. The staff was delightful and the room was comfortable and clean. For the Price and distance from airport I don't think you could find a better option.

    Perfect For A Quick Overnight Before the Airport
    This was a quick stay prior to catching a flight at the airport. The restaurant was cute and the hotel comes with a free hotel shuttle every 30 minutes and free traditional Costa Rican breakfast. The wifi works great throughout as well. The hotel is a bit more like a hostel and there is nothing around it but perfect for a stay pre/post airport.

    While the hotel is in a dodgy neighborhood, the overall facility is safe, clean, the staff was prompt, pleasant, attentive, and the on-site restaurant prepared decent food for the price.

    Great, budget friendly stay
    I’m a yoga teacher and needed a place to stay the night before my retreat started. This place was perfect. The staff gave me a great food recommendation within walking distance. The pool was also awesome.

    Right next to final approach for the airport, making it a noisy place (other guests added to the noise, including children upstairs). Cute little boutique place, a little old/outdated. The new floors are beautiful. Beds and pillows could use some fluff. Staff was very friendly
