I'm not a fan of San Jose & staying at a typical airport hotel is just boring! This place was such a treat, a nice little place to stay that is incredibly close to the airport. The place is quiet & very comfortable, you feel as though you truly begin your vacation upon arrival. The staff was so very helpful,...

This is a great hotel hidden off the Main Drag. Large rooms, friendly staff. Just as we arrived it started raining heavily, with keys in hand, they took us straight to the room, bypassing formal check in. Extra large rooms with french doors to balcony overlooking small pool and garden. Dinner at the hotel was great, good food and service...

Trapp Family Inn was a nice place to lay our heads after landing at San Jose international Airport. They sent a driver to pick us up and greeted us as we exited the airport. It was a short 10 minute drive to the property and we were amazed at the size if the property when we entered the secured gates....

We stayed at the Trapp Family Inn Alajuela on our first and last nights in Costa Rica in May, 2013. Although very close to the airport there was no noise from the highway because it is set back and has lush mature vegetation and trees surrounding the hotel. You do hear the airplanes but nothing past midnight. The staff went...

We stayed here end March 13, in one large clean room on our first night in Costa Rica. Transport from the airport late at night was prompt and free. The room was lovely and easily big enough for all of us- 2 adults and 2 large teenage boys. We enjoyed the lush garden and the pool. Perfect for a stay...

We stayed here really only as a stopover after our flight landed late in the evening in San Jose airport. We arrived around 11pm and the staff were available to let us into the grounds. The bedroom and bathroom was very large and clean. Beds were very comfy. Breakfast was typical Costa Rica (beans, rice, egss, plantain, etc) on a...

We stayed here on the last night of our trip. A hidden gem, nice large rooms, well furnished, on spacious grounds. Had a nice time exloring the gardens. Had a very nice dinner on the patio. The location closeby to the airport was great for getting there in the morning. The only (minor) downside is that we had to leave...

we booked this hotel online while in the Osa Peninsula in CR and needed an overnight stay in San Jose near the airport on our way to Havana. We were very surprised at the quality of the hotel for the price, it is excellent value and the large room we had with a balcony overlooking the pool was quality. i...

We wanted to stay close to the airport because of our flight next morning. This hotel seemed to be comfortable and relaxing alternative. It was just like that. We could spend some time by the pool and in the balcony taking some sun. The pool was out of order but we did not need it anyway. We had reserved a...

Staff were amazing here. They spoke English and Spanish. Free shuttle was very quick. The rooms are large and very clean. The buildings and yard are spectacular. It truly is an oasis in the heart of San Jose. I highly recommend this hotel.
