We spent our first two nights and last two nights in Costa Rica at Hotel Pacande. Very convenient to the airport and to central valley attractions. The place was spotless and very secure. The staff, especially Fabian and Carla, are very friendly and helpful. The videos of the rooms on Hotel Pacande's website make the rooms look a little nicer...

After a long trip to Costa Rica, it was just what we needed. Small, but clean room. Dark and quiet. In the morning there was a nice little breakfast of coffee, toast and fruit. The owner is a very nice man who chatted with us, and helped with directions to the bus terminal. No, it isnt the Ritz, but this...

Pacandé is a wonderful B&B in the heart of Alajuela. The hotel is very cozy, comfortable and within very easy walking distance of all the major sites to see in Alajuela. The staff at Pacandé is what really makes the difference. They are the most friendly hotel staff I have ever met. Breakfast is a great time to chat with...

I was a little nervous when we drove up to hotel, but was pleasantly surprised when we walked inside. It is a very cozy and typical B&B and our room was perfect (#1). The owner was super friendly and the staff were very helpful. They pointed us to a nice little bar / restaurant on the corner that served late....

Well maintained rooms. Close to Alajuela airport. Nice family hotel with good breakfast and a nice garden. Helpful staff if you want to find a restaurant, call a cab or anything else. Close to the parque central.

By far this place is miles above the backpacker hostel next door. We were so impressed to find clean comfortable rooms at a very reasonable price ($30 with shared bathroom), a great breakfast garden area and really friendly and kind staff. Everything you could wish for as a traveler...I highly recommend! Another bonus for anyone with a car is that...

My friend Evelyn and I stayed at Pacande for 4 nights in between travels to various parts of the country.
