Lovely house with very nice garden and lovely staff. Some of the rooms are really nice. We had room 15 which wasn't nice at all. Small, cramped, bathroom in not a good shape. It was clean though. The breakfast included fruits, toast, butter, Marmelade, cereals and coffee.

This was the worst experience I have ever had travelling. No pillow cases...gross. Room was old, dirty as was the bathroom. Bugs crawling out of the broken grout in the shower. Scraped the rental car on the way out. The owner threatened to have me arrested at the airport because he tried to charge a cancelled room to our credit...

We arrived late in the evening after a 12-hour flight and received a nice and relaxed welcome. We got a free upgrade on the room and even though we got a lot of reservation emails in Spanish (AND IN CAPS) all our info was there and everything went smoothly. We slept like babies and after receiving a whole lot of...

The staff at Villa Pacande was so accommodating and sweet. It felt homey and safe. We stayed two nights...the night we flew into San Jose and the night before flying out. The manager was up early and we had a fruit breakfast before heading out. We will make this our regular stop in the future.

Very friendly and kind owners/stuff! We were leaving early for the airport and they made sure we had breakfast and taxi served in time. Room was ok. Place an use some attention of the handy man. Even though this is not a luxury resort, this place is a great value for the money spent!

I loved this bnb. It was a little difficult to get here from the airport since there is another hotel that is called Hotel Pacande. Marc was super friendly and helpful, and the villa was nice and calm. Later at night the bar open and we were able to meet some of the other guests. I was there with my...

typical for costa rica. good location to the airport, 10 minutes. taxi was $10. difficult & steep driveway, approximately 5 parking spots. breakfast was some fruit or cereal, but for a small price, they will cook up some good local chow. furnishings are fairly old, but comfortable. no air conditioning. water pressure is fair, and pipes are a little leaky....

I don't write many reviews for tripadvisor, but for this place I need to take the time. We went on a 10 day trip to Costa Rica and stayed in many nice places, but this was the best establishment we stayed at in the country. Villa Pacande is only a mile or so from downtown Alajuela, so it is quiet...

Stayed at Villa Pacande one night just after arriving from the airport. We just needed a cheap place to stay before heading to La Fortuna. Upon arriving we were asked to pay for the room upfront in cash which wasn't a big deal. There were two rooms left and they let us choose which room we wanted. The property was...
