Every time i fly into san jose to start or finish my vacation I will stay at Hotel Mi Tierra. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is tasty and the staff is awesome. Also if you are into things like kayaking or rafting Roberto(the owner) is very knowledgeable. In general i found the staff to go above and beyond to...

I stayed several nights at Mi Tierra, and was in 3 different rooms over the week or so. They have great accommodations for families. It is very reasonably priced, and they provide a great Costa Rican breakfast with fruit, gallo pinto, eggs, coffee and bread with butter and yummy guava jam. I'd recommend this place to anyone who wants to...

I stayed in this hotel for one night because it was very close to the airport and I had an early flight the next day (7:10 a.m.). I had heard of this hotel through one of the guides in Tortuguero so I decided to book it. I booked a shared bathroom for $35. When I arrived the woman who helped...

I have stayed here several times and Roberto is great. It is different than most Americans are used to but if you are staying awhile he will give you the best thing to do on the day you are there. The way I have stayed the last few times is a few days when you land and a few days...

I had stayed here once prior and had forgotten, I try to always stay at a reasonably priced place with a pool and unfortunately this might be the only one in Alajuela. We were put in a very small dank room no bathroom for 35 dollars, we saw another room which I assumed was 40 and was told it was...

The hotel is near from the airport and located in Alajuela center. It's calm (during the night you might ear cats fights... but that's quite normal if you travel in costa rica), well decorated with paints of the owner, very clean. It's a friendly place, the staff is pretty nice!! (although it's helpful to speak spanish for the breakfast... by...

Paying with credit card? "Not possible". Free airport shuttle (as promised on the business card)? "Not available". Two beers please? "We do not sell beer"... The room did not make me very enthusiastic either: the sheets of the bed did not look extremely clean, the bathroom was so-so and the noise of the traffic was pretty loud. But... for a...

We stayed at Hotel Mi Tierra for our first night in Costa Rica as we arrived late and needed somewhere to crash near the airport. We had opted for a private room with shared bathroom. The room was very small, with a double bed, twin bunkbed and wardrobe cramped into a small space. There was not much room for our...

This is my fourth time to stay here and finally I have had enough. Roberto is a reasonable manager but his wife, Ivanna is very moody and not helpful. Upon arrival one person fell on the horrible connecting stairs...off to the right and broke his wrist, ruining his entire trip. I could not find ice, and grabbed some frozen meat...

We stayed at Hotel Mi Tierra for one night. They had a pool (although it was too rainy to want to swim), hot water, internet and free breakfast. The staff was friendly, but after traveling around for a while we realized that it was far too expensive. The breakfast was good and they have a nice open-air dining room. It...
