Comfy bed - cold shower
We spent 2 weeks in Costa Rica and wrapped up our stay here because we wanted to be close to SJO airport, but not right next door. We were greeted by the owner and given a run down of the place and explicit instructions on how to operate the shower. Emphasis was placed on conserving energy. Yep - we get it, don't need a continuous reminder. We don't mind doing our part to conserve, but a warm shower would have been really nice. The Pacific Ocean was warmer. Tried shower at night and again in the morning - same temp. We also misunderstood breakfast hours, but they were kind enough to accomodate us with a bowl of fruit covered with yogurt and granola. I don't know if the owner was just busy or if his persona is just a little gruff, but I felt like we were irritating him. As beautiful and comfy as this place is, we had much better experiences in other places just because the people we stayed with made us feel like family. However, this is a good value and clean. Clarification on cost to SJO - we were told they could take us for $20 - a taxi here will charge you the same and plan on at least 30 minutes to get there. Also - the walls are "thin". We could hear every single word being said in the room next to us. Guess that isn't an issue if you don't mind being woke up at 5:30 am by some loud Germans.

Terrible! I was not able to check in!
It was horrible. I had some delay in my trip on the day I was supposed to stay at this place, and I tried to contact them via text and call to inform them at I would be 20 minutes late. No one ever replied to me or answered my call. Next thing happened, we were locked outside the property on a miserable night. I can tolerate their rule of checking in before 10 pm (although it is not reasonable), but they should at least be reachable before 10 pm. It is as simple as that. We ended up booking and staying at another hotel on that night. After that, they never got back to me nor did they compensate for my loss. This is certainly not how you treat your customers.

Nice and quiet.
A very nice quiet clean place to stay. Staff is very attentive and responsive to any requests. They offer transport to airport for $15 and meals for a price.The location is close to airport but is remote so if staying for a long time would need a car.

Book this place! You'll be happy you did.
Such a great place to stay. The home was beautiful, inside and out. Incredible balcony, gorgeous bathroom...and such a peaceful view. Our hosts were kind and gracious. If anything, we wish we would have spent more time here! Don't hesitate - book Ruta Verde House. We were so thankful we did.
