I had to stay an extra night due to being detained at the airport and missing my flight, Eric spoke to me on the phone and had me at the inn in less than 20 minutes free of charge. Maybe I was at the right place at the right time, regardless, the experience was warm and refreshing after a long...

I stayed at the Adventure Inn for two nights at the beginning of my vacation in Costa Rica and one night in the end. This is a very clean and comfortable hotel. It is not super fancy but the relaxed atmosphere was perfect to get myself situated at the beginning of my trip and relax at the end. All airport...

I think single ladies feel safe and protected at Adventure Inn, not just the hotel but the area nearby. I enjoyed years compiling my website safe.travel check it out for hundreds of travel tips especially in the Third World and there's even a whole chapter dedicated just to single women travellers. Some ideas may just save your life.

Pros: very clean, lovely staff, great breakfast, super location, free phone calls to Canada which was handy due to the passing of my mother-in-law and making arrangements; comfortable beds, good air con and fan. The staff were incredible at ensuring we were comfortable from our arrival the first night to keeping a few items in their fridge the night before...

Thank you! It is so much easier and fulfilling to keep an old guest than to find a new one.

This was our 2nd/3rd time staying at the hotel. We arrived late on our first evening in CR, so they arranged for a free shuttle to pick us up at the airport. There were other guests on this shuttle. It was an easy ride to the hotel. This was the first time we were able to enjoy the breakfast as...

Please be sure we take reviews like this seriously, and everyone will see a marked improvement immediately in our restaurant dinners. It is most definitely a cultural thing and the cooks seem to forget after a short while that gringo food is much more flavourful and higher caloric than what Ticos are used to. If you don't like the food,...

This seems like an honest review which I appreciate, there is always room for improvement, I have brought the complaint about the lacking pasta to the kitchen. The plugged sink, the maid should have noticed it was plugged or slow draining or the guest could have brought it to our attention so we could fix it immediately. The automatic car...

Staff are very friendly and helpful. I especially apprciated Eric's quick return emails re directions, shuttle etc. Nice pool. Restaurant is convenient but food mediocre. Discounts if you book directly.

Thanks, fortunately most people don't find our food mediocre, especially our free exotic breakfast. Our restaurant is open ended in that they are trying new things all the time especially for the nightly special, you could be way off judging things based on one meal. We always try to improve ourselves while offering vegetables and fruits and fish that are...

A lovely place to stay on either end of a trip to Costa Rica. The location is fantastic, the staff so helpful and considerate. Clean rooms, adorable decor including a pretty cool koi pond.
