Hotel is very convenient to airport, so ideal if you have an early plane from San Jose. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Parking is 1 block down the street @ $5/ night if you rent a car. Breakfast has delicious fruit We stayed a few hours in am after an overnight flight while waiting for friends to arrive later. It was great to have breakfast, take a shower and sleep in a bed for a few hours at reasonable price. Not necessarily a good location for exploring San Jose

Our flight arrived late into SJO, and the town was closed. So it was nice to be greeted by the friendly, patient staff at Pacanade. The room was small and had a window into the hallway, which was nice for air flow but not so nice for noise and security. That said, the hotel seemed quite secure as a whole. The bathroom was surprisingly clean, well stocked, and the shower is GREAT. Breakfast was delicious. We felt well cared for, it was so convenient. Thankyou Pacanade!


Friendly staff, though some appear to have better English than others. Small place, but my private room was a good size and very clean. Hot shower. Breakfast incl and nice outdoor sitting space in the back. Otherwise facilities are quite basic. I had no interactions with other guests, but a great place to stay for the night you come in or night before you leave. paid equal to 8$ USD for the cab, including the tip! Very secure. Front Door is kept locked and about a block from police station.


Absolutely loved staying here. I really felt at home and taken care of. Thank you so much for adding to my incredible experience in Costa Rica!
