Hotel cortez azul is in a good location. There is a good community kitchen to cook your meals. Its very good value for your money. The staff was extremely helpful whenever we had any questions. Definetly go to volcan poas. Its breathtaking


we have stayed for one and couldn't think about stay for another. the place has zero atmosphere, they close the lights very early and they don't let you out after 23:00 because the guy want to go to sleep. the worst thing was the bed.its was the hardest mattress I ever sleep in, and the bed was covered with plastic sheet underneath the sheets so every move you make making a noise, we couldn't sleep and got up all the time.


Nice "tipico" breakfast. good coffee. I would have liked the ceiling light in the room to have been a little stronger. Bathroom fine. Quiet. Close to everything in Alajuela.


This is a nice, cheap place for backpackers, but the street noise is extremely loud throughout the night dur to it's location in the town center, but overall we had a good experience there.
