Offering an outdoor pool, Hotel La Guaria Inn & Suites is located in Alajuela, just a 5-minute drive from Juan Santamaría International Airport.
Score from 36 reviews Very good
They paid for airport transfers On-site restaurant with really good food at reasonable prices - even offers room service. Extremely friendly staff who even gave me 3-prong adapter so I could use my computer in the room. Excellent wifi reception I have stayed here twice and will stay here again.
Nothing really. The only caveat is that while it is close to the airport (10 minutes without traffic), it isn't within walking distance to anything else (shops, restaurants - which is why having one in the hotel is good)
Personal was were kind and helpful, we had to leave very early in the morning, the transportation to the airport was efficiently organized.
location was great, beautiful grounds, pool, good restaurant, helpful staff. a true jewel and a great value
Super convenient and surprisingly luxurious for a place called hotel airport!
Staff was excellent in transitioning from Airport & transportation to Quepos. It was like stepping into Paradise. Restaurant & bar were great.
Beautiful hotel. Very helpful staff with how to get around by taxi & bus. Excellent free breakfast & meals in restaurant are very good.
Tough to improve on paradise.
We have been staying at your hotel for years when we are leaving to go back to the states. We have a home in Costa Rica and spend time there during each year. We love the hotel and were disappointed in December when the hotel was full and we had to stay somewhere else. Your staff are wonderful and very friendly and efficient.
staff food and proximity to airport
expect free wifi. All other hotels stayed at offered it at no charge.
restaurant had vg band
We had to leave at 5:30 am and the hotel provided a taxi.
The price was great and also the amenities.
The location, very hard to find. We had to pay someone to lead the way after getting lost several times.
It is close to the airport.
If your flight is parting too early, you won't get your breakfast.
The location was fantastic. The lobby was beautiful. It felt very secure. Loved the free transit from airport and the breakfast! Beautiful grounds. Nice room.
Pleasant and clean
Not exactly the "Airport" Hotel. Restaurant not tied in with Hotel for billing. Maybe just our room, but shower was useless and hand basin taps could not be turned off fully.
The breakfast place so wonderful
exceptional staff beautiful grounds excellent restaurant/food on site comfortable bed clean pool email communication explaining how to receive free shuttle service to and from airport
construction noise room leaked water from ceiling
Location, price and airport transfer
Friendly Staff 24 hr airport shuttle hot shower
Free wifi did NOT work Rooms may have been clean, but still had a dirty appearance and feel, also outdated. shower very hard to get in, too high $15. extra charge if kids are over 9 a/c not so cool
The ladies at the desk were exceptionally friendly and helpful.
This hotel for very close to the San Jose Airport. It was also very safe. The room was comfortable & clean. The restaurant served good food. All the staff were very nice.
the prie is good,and not so far from the airport,also it is free from the airport
Excellent location Free taxi service to and from airport Friendly and helpful staff Clean and spacious rooms
Wifi connection limited Lack of choice at breakfast
The staff at the reception area were very courteous and helpful. They made a special arrangement for our rental car. And also provided a small breakfast bag because we left before the breakfast started.
The hotel is difficult to find. The rooms are dated and need to be renovated. Very old carpet. And a crack in the bathtub/shower.
We walked out of immigration and directly to one of the many taxis that were waiting to take us to the hotel. The hotel staff paid the taxi and we checked in within minutes. Super easy and convenient! The drive was about 10 minutes. The hotel staff was super efficient and friendly. Two story hotel with open air main areas. Not a fancy chain which is what we like. One side of the hotel has rooms overlooking the pool and the other overlooks a small back area walkway and trees which is where we stayed and slept well. All tile and clean, basic accommodation. The pool is refreshing. Two lounge chairs. The hotel is off of the main highway. The road can be heard from the restaurant. The large menu included some typical, local dishes which is our preference (cannot go wrong with the casada) but pasta and other choices are available. The service was really good. You can get fresh batidos made at the bar. Big fridge in the lobby from which you can buy drinks and beer. We stayed 1 night on the front end of our trip and 2 nights before we left. I booked the room for two adults and a 12 year old but booking.com categorized the 12 year old as a child. The hotel charges $15 for kids over 9. Hotel staff was perfect in dealing with this discrepancy. Also the confirmation states "no meal plan" but full breakfast was indeed included. I emailed the hotel directly to confirm details.
Everything I needed was there. Beautiful, spacious rooms, friendly staff, good food. Free shuttle, even at 4:00 am.
The doors on the rooms are heavy and loud. You can hear your neighbors come and go all night.
