Hotel Mango is close to the San Jose airport and the Hampton and Holiday Inn but less expensive and with its own charm. The courtyard has a nice swimming pool and breakfast area. The rooms are large and comfortable. Staff is very help and always there to open the gate.

I've been traveling to Costa Rica since 2003. Every time I fly in and out of SJO I always stay at Hotel Mango, great prices, clean rooms, and free transport to and from the airport! Highly recommend this place! Pura Vida!

Some friends recomend me this restaurant in Santa Ana because of the good food and nice atmosphere. Something that really like me was the chef use fresh and organic ingredients not common in the cuisine. I visit the restaurant with my family and they really like it. Try the sirloin with coffee Sauce or the sweet morron chily covered with... More

This was honestly one of the cleanest hotels we've ever stayed in. I dare you to find anything dirty in the room, hall, or dining area. The breakfast was also very nice, and free: eggs, fruit, rice and beans. The staff is also a huge plus. They were genuinely nice and helpful. They also provide free shuttle to the airport.... More

My friend and I needed a room for the night and stumbled upon this place. Cute, quiet, clean and friendly staff! We had been backpacking all over Costa Rica and needed a place to wash our clothes, so the owner offered to wash and dry them for us free of charge. Very helpful! We will be staying again.

Great place to stay over night while waiting on a next day departure. However, it is inline with the runway and the planes fly right over the hotel. It's ok if you are a heavy sleeper or an early bird. Other than the noise from the planes, it is priced right, clean rooms, great service, soft beds,and good breakfast.

I've stayed here in 2005 and again 6/13/2016 and it's still my favorite near the airport. It's very clean and updated plus everything works well. I'ts very quiet also, except a few jets in the AM. Great place!

We were trying to find a hotel close to the airport for an early flight. Marriott and all of the other hotels were booked, so this hotel was suggested by Holiday Inn Express only a block away.

The Holiday Inn & Marriott were full so they called to ensure they had room for us. It is only a block or 2 away, and we're waiting for us as we drove in late. Rooms are large, very clean & appear recently updated. Most comfortable beds we had in all of Costa Rica! Wall mounted flatscreen tv we didn't... More
