Location: Al frente esta el zooave el cual es un hermoso zoológico de vida silvestre. Muchos restaurantes con opciones de comida típica y hasta helados.
La habitación del hotel estaba muy limpia y cómoda, las cobijas y sabanas limpias, nos pareció muy interesante el aspecto antiguo de las habitaciones lo cual fue mas bien atractivo para nosotros. el exterior del hotel por los jardines esta bastante descuidado. La piscina estaba limpia y la comida muy buena.

Awesome Hotel!

Posted Sep 10, 2016
Pros: We like the location, the old world ambiance, the price, the huge pool, the gardens and most of all the awesome staff!
Cons: A coffee maker in the room would be awesome instead of the shared one for a whole floor!
Location: Zoo Ave Rescue Centre is right across the street and you are close to a ton of green houses! It's only 15 minutes to the international airport.
Resort Martino is one of our favourite hotels. We live in Costa Rica and often stay here when we want to be near the airport or have things to do in Alajuela. It's an Italian family run hotel, all of the doors are hand carved wood, each one unique, and the rooms have king sized beds with all matching upholstery. The restaurant is awesome, we appreciate the fridge, and the pool is huge! Each room has a private balcony/patio. On our last visit, however, we noticed that it's not as well kept as it has been in the past and the book in the room seriously needs updating, there is a lot of information that is not correct. And although we don't care, there are signs for a casino but there isn't one.
