Alegria B&B is the perfect place to bookend your dream vacation to Costa Rica. At the last minute, my husband and I decided to book with Alegria and we were very happy to have found this place. Its located very conveniently to the airport in San Jose but not so close that you hear airplanes flying overhead. Alegria is nestled in a neighborhood just outside of San Jose in a suburb called Alajuela. It is a bit confusing to get there but if you follow George's precise directions, you'll find it.
George is a true Southern gentleman! After being delayed 7 hours, we arrived in the wee hours of the morning and to make sure we found the place (we had a rental), George was standing outside waiting for us. If you do not have a rental, George will pick you up and drop you off at the airport. It's those little touches that make this place so great.
Once you walk in, the house is airy and comfortable. The common area has a lot of couches and places to lounge as well as an animatronic parrot that is uncannily realistic. The two rooms we stayed in, Las Flores and Las Bellenas were great. Las Flores has a comfy queen bed, private bathroom, and a small tv. Las Bellenas has a cushy King size bed, private bathroom, and a large flatscreen. This is the most luxurious room. The bed is extra plush and roomy, I had a great night's sleep! Breakfast is included and it's a good one: Fresh fruit, banana bread or muffins, eggs (or omelets w/ fresh veggies), bacon (American style), tea/coffee/juice...really whatever you desire. Alegria has great amenities and George really makes you feel at home. I really think George and his Southern hospitality is the best part of Alegria. Hands down would recommend Alegria for people who want a little bit of home in Costa Rica!
