I spend almost 60 nights per year at this hotel, and the service is unbeatable. Rooms are comfortable, clean and have everything you need. Breakfast is good, try gallo pinto. I highly recommend the hotel.

There is an extra charge, but if your friends are of the Hotel Del Rey type, do not bring them there. For it is a family/business class hotel

Just call the hotel to send a taxi to pick you up. Might cost $30-40 but it's safer than getting a taxi outside the arrival area

It's about 15 mins from the airport and taxi would charge $20 to $22. Enjoy your trip
