We had a wonderful time at Dos Palmas, everything was exactly the same as the good reviews we read at Tripadvisor, even better! The rooms, breakfast and service were outstanding. A prefect please to start or end your journey to or -in our case- from Costa Rica. I want to thank specially the owners: Flor, for the delicious home-made food, and Peter for learning us all about his pepper garden. We definitely will return to this little paradise.

In June and July we stayed here for 6 nights. We chose for this hotel because we’ve read good reviews online and we’ve met people that stayed here too. Because we rented a car for our holiday, Dos Palmas was a good start and ending point. The owner helped us by renting a car from a good company named Thrifty.
When we arrived, the owners Peter and Flor gave us a very warm welcome. Dos Palmas Country Inn (La Garita) and Dos Palmas Airport are good and clean places to stay; it is very private and safe. If you need any help just ask Peter or Flor, they will do everything to help you. During our stay Peter and Flor were hosts 24 hours a day.
DP Airport is located very close to the airport (SJO) and it is an apartments complex. DP Country Inn is around 15 minutes from the airport. We slept at both locations and we really enjoyed it. Flor is a good cook and Peter takes good care of his peppers. They are both very kind and helpful.
Both locations are faciliated with a pool, nice garden and a private parking lot. Do bear in mind: it is not possible to pay with a credit card.
Dos Palmas provides a pick up and drop off to the airport SJO.
To Peter and Flor: Thanks for everything, we’ve had a really good time. And also thanks to the other staff and TIO students for doing a great job.

The plays is very tiny, and very, very noisy. It is on a very busy road, and there is not tropical garden (as the travel agent said), and no swimming pool (just a whole with some water). The planes are practically landing in your bed, and you here every car. Rooms were not clean, and the wifi does not reach all the rooms. Even for one night stay to fly out, there are much better and cheaper place. Just search a little bit. Noise, messy rooms, not clean, expensive, bad beds. They should drastically lower their prices and be honest in their promotion.

Hello Frans,

First I want to say that every opinion is very important for us,we are always learning!
You found the location too noisy, as we are two minutes from de airport. That is what you explained to me that day. You did not mention about the swimming pool(this is a beatiful and clean swimming pool) and the rooms. Our rooms are clean (cleaness is what we are famous for). You got an studio this means bedroom, bathroom and kitchen for a very good price (we know the prices in the area and we are very competitive for what we offer). You wanted your money back, and as we had a full hotel we explained to you that we could not do it. However you said we will regret it, now I understand why. It is a petty when a review like this one is not placed in an fair and constructive way, just with the feelings of the moment.

We are very happy with all the nice reviews from our guests in the different sites, this means that we are in the right track.

They were very friendly and accommodating. I'd forgotten my phone charger and they lent me one overnight with a smile. Breakfast was decent. The facilities are older and dated, but clean and large rooms. Great price!

Room Tip: if you need wi-fi get a room closer to the office, otherwise the restaurant patio works fine.

Very convenient to airport , It was only a few minutes away. . Airport pick up or drop off is included in rate. Hotel staff were waiting for us when we arrived. Rooms were clean and very affordable. Rooms are big and a small kitchen area . Staff were friendly helpful with regard to directions to local restaurants and stores. Great place to stay if you arrive late and want to sleep before touring the country the following day. The pool is tiny but we did not go there for the swimming.
