My very first night in Costa Rica was spent at this small garden hotel near the airport where we began my 2009 Bird Photography Trip. It was old then, but I liked it because of the garden setting with lots of trees and flowers and quite a few birds. Just spent one night at each end of the trip here and did not get many photos, with none of the building. The building shot here I downloaded from Booking.com website. They don't seem to have their own site, so here they are on Booking.com:
Yeah, I know, that is a really long address! You could also google the hotel. I am not particularly recommending it, but it is a cheap option near the airport.
