We have stayed at the Adventure Inn for the past two years. We were there last week for two nights and both visits were exellent. From the front desk with Mary upon our arrival to leaving (sorry I can't remember his name--nice man with a ponytail) to the wait staff at the restaurant. I believe her name was Katia who...

Since my last trip, the owners have turned the Adventure Inn into a top-notch operation. It was very good then, but now it's even better. The location is perfect for exploring the country or as a place to stay for a few days exploring San Jose. My room is perfectly comfortable, the food in the restaurant is delicious.......the free breakfast...

I don't write reviews like this often but I wanted to recognize the simple acts of excellence delivered by this hotel. I've become a bit tired of reviews that mean only to poke rather than provide value. When excellent value is the standard, little slips are merely overlooked. This hotel has a clear and focused mandate to do what it...

Thank you for your response. I will be mentioning the hairs in the bed sheets to our chambermaid staff, this is definitely not acceptable, they need to be more careful but generally are. I wish these guests had mentioned it when they were here. Regarding cock roaches and flies on the breakfast buffet, little fruit flies I can understand as...

My husband and I stayed at this property the night before we flew home from our Costa Rican vacation. The check in staff was very friendly and efficient.

Eric and the staff at Adventure Inn were all incredibly helpful and professional. When the cell phone that came with our rental car was stolen Eric went out of his way to help us by contacting the rental car company for us and helping us negotiate with them. Eric made renting a car and getting around Costa Rica much easier...

I stayed here for a couple nights while transiting to Panama. The staff were super friendly, and helpful. I felt like people genuinely wanted to help.

My family and I took a Christmas vacation to Costa Rica this past holiday season and needed a place to stay in San Jose, the day we flew in and the night before we left.

The people here are exceptionally friendly and made us feel welcome the whole time. We found this huge cricket about 6 inches long that lied dead in the parking lot near the hedge and my children got terrified by its size. Seeing that and probably after having got amused, the security guard smiled and got busy with a palm leave...
