After a long day in the air plane George warmly welcomed us at his B&B. The room was clean, but a little out-dated. The bathroom next to the room was clean and had a warm shower. The area is quiet so we had a good night sleep. George made us a lovely breakfast (before we left, at 7am) with the... More

I stayed at Alegria B&B for three one-night stays at the beginning, middle and end of my Costa Rica adventures....glad I did! George has created almost a home-stay experience - his guest rooms are all comfortable, the common areas offer great spaces to relax and his gardens are lovely. George was quick to communicate when reserving, helpful, informative, interesting to... More

So glad we found this place! After a long travel day it was so nice to have George waiting right at the airport exit for us. It's a nice quiet neighborhood only a few minutes drive from the airport. George was full of advice on how to spend our time in Costa Rica and the breakfast in the morning was... More

Wonderful and spacious B & B. George the owner will pick you up at the airport and bring you to his B & B. His comfortable and clean home will allow you to rest and gather yourself for your holiday travels. We have stayed here on several trips and always have enjoyed the amenities, including a lovely breakfast.

We have stayed at Allegria B&B with George for 3 years running and consider it our home away from home. We always ask for the largest room with the king sized bed. All of the others are very nice but we enjoy this big space the most. The breakfasts of fresh home made banana bread, home made sausage, omlette and... More
