The hotel is close to the airport and has both a pool and hot tub The service was excellent and the foods were fine and reasonably priced. There were a number of statues and art work that was quite funky and fun.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 February 2017

This was the second time in two years we have stayed at The Adventure Inn for both our incoming stay and out-going stays in Costa Rica. What can I say that I didn't say last year? The customer service is excellent. We accidentally left two small bags at The Inn at the beginning of the trip and they were nice...

Thank you! Whatever you need, we can arrange or get for you, nobody tries harder to help you enjoy your entire vacation, even if you are staying in other parts of the country.

The hotel is older but really well maintained. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Restaurant food was great . Booking directly with the hotel was cheaper and the email they sent was a wealth of information. They had car rentals, tour ideas and basics of getting around Costa Rica very grateful for all the help and info. Almost forgot ,...

I love this hotel. It's close to the airport, super cute inside, with beautiful paintings on all the walls of each hotel room, in a safe community, with friendly and competent staff. It's clean and comfortable and the pool is really nice! You can tell these people put their heart and soul into everything, adding creative touches and not missing...

We arrived late after long flight, pickup was amazing, breakfast next morning too, and hire car really convenient. Kids loved pool first day. Perfect place to start the holiday. We also did the reverse on the way back. Thoroughly convenient, and perfect for family.

Adventure Inn is one of a kind. Close to the airport in it's own little world of warm family -like members who welcome visitors with open arms, food at the ready, clean comfortable quiet rooms, and a book exchange that I frequent every time I come. 😊 It is truly my oasis in travel.

Stayed there one night for layover before flying back to states. It is very close to the airport and close to an upscale neighborhood, shopping and fine dining. Very safe area, was able to walk to local grocery store and get some things. Stayed in room #3 on the bottom floor and got good nights sleep in comfortable bed. Some...

Unlike much of San Jose, guests tend to feel more secure in our area with it's upscale homes and hotels, quieter and cleaner plus we are part way to the airport so you miss much of the heavy San Jose congestion. But stay more than just a night, you'll enjoy the relaxing ambiance.

We were picked up by inter bus paid by adventure inn. Great deal. Got in after 8:30 p.m. They informed us mawamba lodge had called and would arrive at 5:50 a.m. I doubt a big chain hotel would have done that. They gave us a couple of tickets for cocktails which were great. I would have liked to sit by...

Thanks for the five star review, especially considering you left early with a breakfast 'to go' without the opportunity to enjoy our amazing full breakfast served from 6 to 10 am. Along with several hot breakfast plates, you would have experienced several different fruits on the buffet and Tico specialties, many you have probably never seen or tried before. You'll...

I had the pleasure of staying one night at the Adventure Inn before flying back to the states and I wish I could have stayed longer!

This was the perfect stay for the night before our next day 7 am departure from the airport. We loved the tropical feel with the jungle murals and decorations throughout the hotel.

Thanks for taking the time to write. Generally there is little traffic between Adventure Inn and the airport 24 hours per day, we are maybe 12 to 15 minutes away, use one of our free airport shuttles. By avoiding imported foods and drink, you can keep your prices low while receiving an authentic culinary experience, prepared to perfection by those...
