Close to Poas, La Paz and the Airport. The grounds are lush with great views of the jungle. Rooms are clean but I didn't have AC, not sure if other rooms did. It was in a bit of a noisy area of town. Dogs were barking while we were trying to get to sleep before an early flight. The host...

Needing a one-night stop near the San Jose airport we chose Visa Linda Montana based on it’s location outside the suburbs of San Jose. Somewhat difficult to find without GPS (thank goodness I printed detailed maps) we eventually did. Upon arrival we were very warmly greeted by Sabrina (and Joe the dog). Our room was large but very basic. WiFi...

Host was lovely, her staff very friendly, it felt like a place away from the city, with beautiful views, room was very clean, but beds were not comfortable, one in particular was too soft and only some small wire shelves for storage...no area to really unpack luggage. Included breakfast was OK, nothing special. Breakfast room available throughout the day for...

We stayed here for 2 nights. The best place we have stayed in 12 nights in Costa Rica. It's 30km to the volcano which took us 45 minutes. We left at 0715 after a lovely breakfast and got there for the park opening. We also ate at 2 local restaurants which were really nice as well. The rooms are large....

You know you made a good choice as soon as you enter the hotel ground of Vista Linda Montana. The property sits in the middle of a beautiful garden with a spectacular mountain view of San Jose. Most of all, you'll find the hosts are so genuinely friendly and helpful. I'm sure I will come back to this hotel again.

It was a very nice stay. The grounds are well kept and ability to get to the airport is ideal. The rooms were cleans and newly remodeled. I would stay here again while traveling through the country of Costa Rica.

Dirk and his intern Tim did everything in their power to make our stay comfortable. They view is amazing at breakfast each morning. The hotel is conveniently located to the airport and Poas and is a great value.

Dirk and his family are great! We stayed here on our last two nights of this trip. It was very close to the airport and to downtown Alajuela. The rooms are private from the road and truly do have a beautiful view of the mountains. Dirk was very accommodating and woke up early to make us breakfast in time for...
