Puerta Del Sol is a great option for a hotel if you're in transit in or out of San Jose. I chose the place originally because it was the cheapest hotel nearby to the airport that offered airport transfer. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived. I arrived much later than expected (due to traffic going through San Jose). When... More

Flying out of SJO San Jose? Just 7 minutes from the airport hidden away in a little subdivision, you will find Puerta del Sol Hotel. Arriving in the pouring rain we were invited to pull our jeep almost into the lobby to get out of the wet. Seeing that my husband was ill, the proprietors expedited the check-in process and... More

Nice Hotel and the cheapest around Cariari. Rooms are big enough, well prepared and have conditioned air, small fridge, wifi and the rooms are cleaned everyday. Breakfast is typical from Costa Rica (rice and beans, eggs, sausages...) Is Continental style so don't expect Buffet. Owners are very charming and take care from all your requests. The Hotel have their rules... More

We stayed one night at this hotel. Hotel was in a good location close to airport. It served its purpose and was priced appropriately. The rooms were clean. The parking was a little tight and could only fit 4-5 cars. It was close to a market and a couple of nice restaurants. In this hotel you get what you pay... More

This a nice place to overnight, not in the city, not far from the airport. Very ample rooms and I loved they use solar energy for water heating. Breakfast was nice, I was expecting less as the price was very low. If you have time to enjoy the gardens and pool, it would be a bargain.

I chose it because it was near where I needed to go during my 5-day stay for medical services. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My room was clean and comfortable. It is close to the expressway and noise, but also close (within walking distance) to a mini-mall and a full-size mall. There are plenty of good places to... More

Nice room, comfy bed, clean bathroom. The pool was lovely to swim in. Good breakfast. Great Texas Barbeque restaurant nearby for dinner.
