Close to Airport. Wonderful setting, incredible people, lovely grounds. If you can book this spot, you are lucky. This time we could only get one night on the way out of CR. They absolutely take care of you like family and dinner is wonderful. You will be hidden away from the airport, but within minutes. They will provide transfers and...

We got off our plane trip from the United States and after hailing a taxi we were quickly shuttled to the peaceful refuge this hotel provides in the busy Capitol of San Jose. The Trapp Family Country Inn was shaded by several large trees in a garden setting with flowers, fruit trees and birds. The kids were happy to jump...

We spent our first and last nights at the Hotel Trapp Family Inn. We arrived after 10:30pm and were greeted by the security guy, taken to our room and then offered 2 cold Imperials. The room was simple but comfortable and the shower was hot the next morning. The server in the dining room, Monica, was very kind to get...

I really enjoyed my stat at the Trapp Family Country Inn, I needed a place near the airport but didn't want to stay at a chain and feel like I was on a mid level business trip in the states. It is 5 minuts from the airport, but feels like you are in the country (even though you can hear...

We stayed one night at this inn. It was the perfect place to stay after a great vacation in Costa Rica. The inn was beautiful, quiet, clean and close to the airport. The garden is full of flowers, trees and plants. The restaurant at the inn served us a good dinner and breakfast.

We arrived in late at night. The property looked like a haunted house. There was a huge, old scary looking tree in front of the hotel. The hall way was very dark and our room reminded us of the movie, Shining or Rosemary's baby. The doors made squiky noise when opening and closing. We heard a funny, metallic sound which...

Good morning! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I’m very sorry to hear about your experience on your recent stay. You and your husband seems very happy. Even when we ask you if everything was fine you said yes!! I guess it wasn¨t true. Thank you for your comments.

What a surprise. Hidden at the end of a typical Cost Rican lane is a beautiful hacienda with a traditional feel and style. It is not brand new but is nicely maintained and was very clean. The room was large, and had a real bath tub and hot water - practically unheard of in CR. Swung open the double french...

Friends and I stayed here one night on 12/18/15. Airport pick-up was prompt but I needed to have airline employee call the Inn as their answering machine was in Spanish.
