We ate here after arriving at the airport and being shuttled to our hotel. An okay dinner. We've never been to a Denny's that serves beer but it was a nice addition to the meal.

I was amazed at the quick and friendly service, and the Denny’s 1-block from the Hampton in Alajuela serves beer/wine too. The entire meal was served within 5-minutes of order, and cooked to perfection. Loved it...on my way back to the USA.

It's Denny's, it's exactly what I expected so I was neither surprised and delighted or disappointed. It's decent basic food, not gourmet but you can eat it, be satisfied and go to sleep without hunger pangs. I hadn't eaten at a Denny's in probably thirty...More

We ate there in the evening on Thanksgiving (which is not a holiday there). A turkey dinner was offered as a special for the tourists, but we did not want to pay what they wanted for it. My wife had a three appetizer sampler, my...More
