This is one of the best properties we lived at on our trip to Costa Rica. The host lady stays at the property and was very warm and welcoming. She had a few rescue dogs that my kids enjoyed playing with. The breakfast in the morning was really good. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The property is very secure, gated and is very well maintained. The trees and plants made it all the more pleasing to stay here. Highly recommend staying at this property if you are visiting San Jose.

Our night at Villa Margarita was a last-minute booking, but I am so glad that we found it! The hotel is not fancy, but comfortable and personal. I loved relaxing in the hammock and rocking chair on the patio outside of our room. Margarita and her staff are amazing! Everything was clean and comfortable, and the place had a wonderful family feel. Margarita made an amazing breakfast and even took me to town to a restaurant to get takeout dessert in the evening! I highly recommend staying here!

Villa Margarita is attended directly by her owner, she is always attentive so that your stay is the best. The place is ideal for resting, reading a good book or going to INCAE (it's next door). The rooms are spacious, ecofriendly but have all the required amenities. The best option in Alajuela.

The host went above and beyond to have our car rental company pick up our vehicle at the property and have a taxi drive us to the airport which was immensely helpful. She even drove us to dinner and picked us back up. The restaurant was unavailable during our stay, but as we were only there for the evening it didn't really effect us. We were offered drinks and snacks.
