This property is a great value and high quality. It is located conveniently between the airport and the city center. A great place to stay if you have a day or too to spend in San Jose before going on to other location in Costa Rica. It's about 20-30 minutes from the airport and has shuttle service for $15/person. It is a short taxi ride to the city center. Excellent food and customer service.
