I stayed here one night and would have been very happy to stay longer at this place. It is pretty, safe, clean, spacious and quiet. The staff is excellent and efficient. The restaurant is great. I will saty here when I return to Costa Rica. Beth

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 February 2017

This was the second time in two years we have stayed at The Adventure Inn for both our incoming stay and out-going stays in Costa Rica. What can I say that I didn't say last year? The customer service is excellent. We accidentally left two small bags at The Inn at the beginning of the trip and they were nice...

It's an older property but functions very well, the staff are efficient and friendly, they will organize everything and anything for you. Rooms are spacious and comfy. The price includes breakfast and from/to airport transportation which is very convenient. The pool is very nice. The restaurant is decent. I think most people stay overnight before moving onto other parts of...

I stayed with a group of friends at the Adventure Inn one night before traveling on to Puerto Viejo. The hotel is a cute small hotel with tropical decor. It is not fancy but nice and clean and friendly staff. It also has a nice breakfast included. We enjoyed the stay.

Adventure Inn is an oasis in the middle of busy San Jose. It was a great way to start our 2-week Costa Rica vacation. The staff were very kind and upgraded us to a junior suite. We loved the paintings on the walls of our room and the wall art on the whole property. We really enjoyed the pool as...

This is the second trip I have stayed at Adventure Inn. It is reliably friendly, comfortable, clean and accommodating. This is especially important to me because I go to and from Adventure Inn to more remote areas of Costa Rica where the accommodations can be "rustic" at best. It is wonderful to return to comfort, good food and few worries....

We stayed at the Adventure Inn on a Saturday night in April -- our last night in Costa Rica. Didn’t spend much time there, just a quick-hit in late, out early. Check-In was easy. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious, large enough for two adults and three kids, with two queen beds and a...

Adventure Inn was pretty close to the airport. I received email reminders before our visit and departure. We stayed there at the front and back end of our visit to Costa Rica. The little restaurant had good options and the murals on the wall made this hotel welcoming to CR. The staff was helpful and pleasant and they packed us...

A lovely, friendly, comfortable hotel, spotlessly clean and bigger and better than it looks from first impressions. We stayed here for a total of 4 nights, 3 at the beginning of our holiday and 1 prior to our return flight home. It is primarily used as an airport hotel, about 15 mins away, but we found it to be just...

We we're really surprised just how nice this hotel was. It didn't look great from the outside but inside all was exemplary; super service, well maintained property and quiet well kept rooms. Marco and staff does a super job.

People often tell me that Adventure Inn makes them feel like they are in Costa Rica with a nice mix of stonework, plants and indigenous and Tico art, and we seem to keep adding to it all the time! Coming soon, a volcano mural beside the pool!
