We just got back from a week in CR. This adorable and comfortable B&B was the last place we stayed before our early morning flight. We stayed in room #3 at the end of the first floor hallway. It was a bit small, but comfortable & clean, with plenty of space in the closet for luggage. The bathroom was clean...

This hotel is located very near the center of town but on a quiet street. We were in a “Queen Room”, with a small ensuite -- small but comfortable enough for one night. The included breakfast was bread with jam and fruit (and coffee). The place could do with some improvements, and there was quite a bit of mildew along...

I stayed here 1 year ago and had the best experience at Hotel Pacande. It's a perfect spot to stay when you are either entering or leaving Costa Rica. It's close to the airport, the rooms are scrupulously clean and affordable, the space is relaxing and the family who runs it are genuine and kind. Would highly recommend.

Stopped here for one night after flying in to Costa Rica. Everything with the place was good. Room was large, clean and comfortable, breakfast was good and the staff were very friendly. Only note that soured the visit was the person on reception tried to overcharge us by $10 or so and refused to acknowledge the price in the booking...

When I started up my business in Costa Rica, I looked for lodging for both extended and return visits. Not satisfied with five prior situations, to my good luck I discovered Hotel Pacande. It offered Latin American hospitality and European character that I encountered in the past in other small, successful family-run guesthouses, including clean, safe, quiet rooms at a...

Staying at the Hotel Pacandé was definitely the best decision I made. It is situated right next to the airport (2-3 km away) and it is very nice. The breakfast is included in the price and even though it is not the best I have tried, it is ok. The taste of the fruits is amazing! The best thing about...

We arrived at SJO late in the evening and had to leave early the next morning. This hotel was just right for that situation. The room was able to accommodate us - 3 people needing 3 separate beds. It was clean and relatively quiet. There was a fan, which was good because the weather was hot and humid. The front...

Comfy bed, nice breakfast of fruit and Costa Rican breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful wooden architecture with birds flying around. Only stayed for a night but very pleasant stay (21 in our group). Nice and close to the airport.
