Neighborhood was ok. It had a cemetery in the front which I did not know. I got this house as it was really close to where I wanted to go hence it worked out well.
Anay was truly helpful and a great host. She even wait it for me after I arrived two hours late-and help me to order food. The Condo has everything you need, it's truly conveniently located If you are flying in or out from SJO(10 minutes away). A $5 or $6 dollars taxi ride.
I've been coming to Costa Rica almost every year since 1991 and I usually stay in San Jose. This year I decided to try Alajuela and book with airbnb instead of the usual hotel.
The place is lovely. Very clean, pretty and comfortable. Such a nice alternative to a hotel. Anay is very friendly, helpful and inviting. We had a choice of rooms. We really enjoyed it.
I stayed 1 month in condo Portofino and I'm very happy and satisfied with the lodging. Conde Portofino is the perfect place to stay in Alajuela, close to the center but in a quiet and safe area.
The apartment is very nice, big, safe and fully equipped.
Anay is very helpful, welcoming and friendly.
I highly recommend this apartment to anyone.
Anay (and her sister) were very accommodating. They helped me call taxis and answered all questions that I had. This 2 bedroom condo is perfect for one night if you need to be near the main airport. You may want to stop off at a super market to pick up food/water on your way in as there's not much in the immediate neighborhood once you get to the condo. (Even though Anay gives very instructions for arriving, some of my taxi drivers had a hard time finding the condo. Make sure that they know where it is before you agree to travel with them. I had to suggest to one to "call a colleague" for help.) Overall, I would definitely stay here again if I have an early flight out or a really late arrival.
Like many others, we were searching for a spot to spend a night close to the airport, as our flight was leaving the next day. After seeing that many of the hotels in the area were triple the price, we booked our room with Anay, which worked out perfectly.
She was very helpful in making sure that we arrived here easily. Our shuttle left us near the airport, and our taxi driver knew immediately when we mentioned Condo Portofino. If you have the app on your phone, you can access the directions even when offline, so that's what we did.
Anay's sister was there to greet us and get us settled in when we arrived. The apartment was as described -- two bedrooms, a full kitchen, a living area, and a nice bathroom with hot water. The A/C worked well and definitely made it easier to sleep at night.
Anay even helped us arrange for a taxi pickup in the morning, which made our lives a lot easier. My Spanish isn't the greatest, and over the phone is even tougher, so we were grateful that we didn't have to worry about missing a ride to the airport. Depending on the traffic, expect to pay $6-$10 for a taxi to the airport.
The area is quiet, and there quite a few restaurants and convenience stores within walking distance. We went out and picked up some food for dinner, and the walk was only 5-10 minutes. It is also very quiet at night, which was good for us after a long day of bus-riding.
I think that for the price, this spot is unbeatable for a stayover near the airport. We would definitely stay here again!
The hosts were more than helpful. They went out of there way to ensure our stay was pleasant and helped us with any questions we had. They definitely helped make our stay more comfortable. The place was great! Clean, and immaculate. The listing is in a safe and quiet neighbourhood close to restaurants, shops, and the bus station which will take you directly to Poàs Volcano. We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend this listing to friends and family traveling to Costa Rica.
Anay war sehr behilflich und lotste das Taxi zur Unterkunft, hat sich freundlicherweise für uns um ein Leih-Auto bemüht und die ganze
Abwicklung für uns gemacht.
Das Appartment ist wunderbar gelegen und war sehr sauber.
Genau das richtige für den Costa Rica Einstieg.
Anay from Condo Portofino, was our final Airbnb host before our departure from Costa Rica. We picked this place because it was close to the car rental place and the airport, therefore our expectation were as such. We couldn't communicate through roaming and we manage to talk to Anay, using Costa Rican hospitality, an hour before arriving, which was great after a confusing situation with this place. And, happily after meeting Anay everything was fine and the place was waiting for us.
Anay was very welcoming and helpful and the place was excellent, clean, well equipped and comfortable. The surrounding were not attractive at all, therefore it is a place to be used as a base to move to others, since it's very well located in the center of the country.
I believe it's a good place when arriving and/or leaving the country. It is close to the airport and to main routes and San José.
I love the fact, it was family run, we met Anay's family, they all were very nice and helpful to explain how to get here and there, and give hints for places nearby to visit. This aspect is very important in Costa Rica, because there is no good road maps or street with names to orient yourself, it's messy, so if a local can help you with it, it's always good!
It took us a while to get there, I believe the directions to the place could be more precise, and a good map could be included. The place could be found on (website hidden) maps or waze, however good nearby references are very important. For this case it's very important to indicate that there are two adjacent cemeteries in Alajuela, Las Rosas and Santísima Trinidad, both are located on Av. 3 Tomás Guardia, they are like one, and the Condo on Av. 7 is very close to the entrance of the Las Rosas Cemetery on Calle 22. This is not a minor problem, since a friend from San José visited us and took her hours to find the place.
WOW ! Anay fût une fantastique hôte, extrêmement chaleureuse et bienveillante. L'appartement est exactement comme sur les photo et convient parfaitement à une famille de 4 avec 2 enfants en bas âge. Il est très propre et très bien équipé. Nous avons mangé à la Casena del Maiz, un restaurant familial recommandé par Anay et ce fût un excellent choix (*spécialement les Tortilla de cerdo). Je recommande fortement pour se poser à l'arrivée ou au départ de son séjour au Costa Rica. Merci Anaïs!
THEY HAVE BEEN LOVELY, VERY NICE AND POLITE, I HOPE TO SEE THEM AGAIN SOON.
Ospiti eccellenti, molto gentili e affidabili. Spero possano tornare
MUY CORDIALES, PERSONAS ENCATADORAS. ESPERO VOLVERLOS A ENCONTRAR EN OTRA OCASIÓN.
Marjorie has been a very good host! She left the flat clean as it was at her arrival. Hight recomended!
Marjorie is always welcome back in my house.
Marjorie was a very nice and friendly guest. She left the flat perfectly clean. I recommend her with no hesitation.
