Margarita, 28 March 2012 Thank you so much for your friendly hospitality to all of the Epperson/Bond clan. I appreciated that hospitality especially on Sunday morning. I got the wooden pineapple and am using it for folded napkins or coasters, I haven’t decided. Yours was a lovely spot to be at the beginning and ending of our marvelous holiday. I wish you well for your future, Warmly, Eileen E., Salisbury, CT, USA
Hello Margarita and family,
We so enjoyed our 4 nights with you in January. The hotel is beautiful,comfortable and so
relaxing because you take such good care of your guests. We have talked about you
with all our friends here and shared our pictures. We really liked Costa Rica and
are so glad we visited. Just wish it had been a little longer but we will think
about returning. Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality.
Pat and Jack W., Kansas City, USA 06 February 2012
I had the wonderful opportunity to gather with friends and family for several days before and
after my nephew's wedding in Alajuela to a lovely Tica!
The setting, the kind hospitality of Margarita and her family and staff (including 4-footed ones!)
was such a gift for all of us! I would return in a heartbeat. Pura Vida!

All is good and I got everything. Thank you both you are GREAT!
One of the best things that ever happened to us in Costa Rica was meeting your family and stay with you.
Bob & Christine G. Humboldt, Arizona, USA 30 July 2011
My niece, Stacy and I stayed with you last Feb 9th & 14th. What a wonderful choice!
We wouldn't stay anywhere else now and tell everyone about "Margarita de La Garita"!
You made our first trip so 'painless' by taking care of the car, cell phone, GPS,
gorgeous clean accommodations and of course your help with our questions.
Your place is absolutely Lovely!
Whenever we come to Costa Rica in the future you can rest assure, we'll stay with you.
Mary Rodgers, Elkton, Maryland, USA 22 July 2011
Thank you so very much for everything.
Your devotion for your guests is superb. Wayne and I had a blast!
We hope to see you in our next trip to Costa Rica in a not very distant future.
Sincerely, Victoria W. FL., USA 28 June 2011
Thank you for being so kind and helpful.
Your place was really beautiful and comfortable…
We left some extra beer in fridge…
Gracias per todo…. Sofia M. and family… Westminster, CA, USA 27 June 2011
Hi Margarita and Ad
We are very delinquent in sending this email, but better late than never!
we want to thank you for a lovely stay in Costa Rica.
Margarita's is a perfect spot to relax just before or after an airport trip.
We would definitely stop there again! The weather and location and amenities are so lovely,
particularly for those with children. Ours loved the trampoline and tennis and all the animals!
The breakfast was delicious and hearty, too.
Jennifer L. San Jose, California, USA 09 June 2011
Just wanted to tell the world what a great place you have.
We stayed with your our first and last night in Costa Rica (3 wk trip) and it was absolutely fantastic.
What a way to start and end an amazing adventure! You made us feel so much at home.
It was sad to say goodbye. We hope to visit again some day but would tell anyone going to Costa Rica
that you are the best gateway to the country.
Sarah H. Ontario Canada 24 May 2011
I wanted to take the time to thank you again for your hospitality.
Your rooms were wonderful and your sincere friendly service was amazing.
I would highly recommend your location to everyone who flies to Costa Rica.
It was a privilege to have met you
Regards Monica B. (and family) from Canada 03 April 2011
Margarita, of Margarita’s SJO airport B & B, epitomizes what customer service is all about.
She is in the ideal location close to SJO Intl Airport, with absolutely gorgeous grounds and accommodations.
I arrived SJO on March 19th unable to get a room at Margarita’s B & B until the night before my departure on March 24, 2011.
Small wonder, considering such impeccable service and rooms.
When I dropped in unannounced on March 20th to deliver my dirty laundry for my return to the US trip Margarita took care of everything.
1) Laundry for departure day – done.
2) GPS that the car rental company did not bring – done.
3) Cooler the car rental did not bring – done and at no charge.
4) Ride to local restaurant for dinner – done.
5) Found a ready to go breakfast on the outdoor table of my room because I was leaving too early for breakfast (i.e. 5:00am)
6) Before even coming to Costa Rica, Margarita and her husband’s website pretty much clued me in to just about everything I needed to know and do beforehand.
Kudu’s to you, Margarita. Next trip I will have to be sure to book earlier.
Denis M. Snoqualmie, WA, USA 29 March 2011
Margarita's B&B is spectacular. I stayed there for five days and enjoyed every minute.
The decor is lovely. The rooms are so large you won't believe your eyes and they are sparkling clean.
The owners are helpful and are constantly improving a place that needs no improvement!
The staff is friendly and the service is great. It's the perfect location from which to tour
Volcano Poas and La Paz Waterfall Gardens. I give it the absolutely best rating.
Thank you, Sarah H. Scottsdale, AZ, USA 05 February 2011
What a friendly and welcoming couple! My husband arrived late and were exhausted.
Greeted with warm smiles and friendly animals. It made us feel right at home.
We only stayed one night at that point but were returning at the end of our trip for two nights.
Margarita is so sweet and her family is wonderful.
The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable.
You can see all the hard work they have put into the grounds to keep it looking tidy and tropical!!
The views were breathtaking, a true gem!

My name is Tracy and I am sad to say I have come across your wonderful web site too late as the date I needed is all filled up on your calendar. My family and I arrive at the San Jose airport on Jan 28th, 2011
My husband and I are traveling with my 76 year old Mom and 77 year old Dad. Two wonderful people.
We are looking to stay in a nice place for the night so my Mom and Dad can have a rest after the long flight day before we make our way to Jaco.
I don't know your area at all but after looking at your web site and reading your reviews I would have felt very comfortable and happy to have booked with you. Since we can't I am wondering if you could recommend somewhere we could go for the night that would be similar in cost and hopefully as close as possible to how nice your B&B is.
I hope you don't mind. I would have loved to book with you. This will probably be the last trip I get to take with my parents and I want it to be as wonderful as possible from the start to the finish.
Thanking you, Tracy B. NY, USA 01 January 2011
Margarita, Lisseta & Ad,
Thank you for your wonderful hospitality when we visited Nov 2010.
We traveled with a group of six and stayed in your largest room offered in San Jose property.
Everything is wonderfull decorated and your gracious welcome made all of us feel at home.
Will visit again and plan on staying with you on our return
Tracey L., Oregon, USA 25 December 2010
Sarah and me would like to thank you, Ad and your daughter for making our stay with you so nice.
We enjoyed staying with you and loved the surrounding area where your B+B is based.
It`s a shame we only had 4 nights with you but we enjoyed every minute of our stay.
You made us feel so welcome and took great care of us ( and our luggage ) and we can`t thank you enough.
We hope you have a great Christmas and a busy and prosperous New Year.
Feliz Navidad! Many thanks Mark and Sarah H. Essex, U.K. 24 December 2010
We would like to recommend Margarita's Bed and Breakfast to any potential customers.
We had the pleasure of staying here in September 2010 after flying in from Canada.
It was the most pleasurable experience for us with such nice rooms and wonderful service.
Margarita was a wonderful host who helped us get started on our tour of Costa Rica.
We will be back some time in the future to spend more time to visit San Jose and area.
Brian and Cheryl G. Canada 12 December 2010
Hope everything is okay with you and your spouse.
I ve been that week to Jaco and Hermosa, and all was great including the stay at you.
Thank you for yor support, it was great to have you to know, and for sure if i go back
to Costa Rica i ll be delightfull to spend my first day with you.
All the best. Ricardo P. - Coimbra, Portugal 03 December 2010
Hola Ad and Margarita,
Made it back to Boston, and I wanted to thank you both for having the inspiration to put a place together
for folks to enjoy as much as Margarita's of La Garita. Muy Bien! Look forward to seeing you in January.
We'll get you the dates as soon as possible.
Good luck putting those solar panel up. If you don't find someone to put them up I'd be glad to help in January.
As always, Be well and Enjoy.
Sincerely, Dalip, Boston, USA 24 November 2010
Ad and Margaret, Thank you both
(Well, must include as well your lovely daughter and the doggies, and the kitties too)
for a very nice stay.
I will be sure to pass the word so you will be visited by our friends too.
Thank you! - Sheryl L., Costa Rica 29 September 2010
Hi Margarita and Ad
Aimee and I wish to thank you again for your hospitality and humor during our 2 nights with you last week.
We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
Cheers, Harry B., New York, USA 29 September 2010
Your place is delightful. Thank you very much. I will use whenever I need to.
When I go back to the States in November for a short period, I most likely will leave my car there.
Again, you have a great B&B!
Thanks, Bob B.,Costa Rica 27 September 2010
Hello Ad & Maguarita,
Your B&B in Alejuela is a real gem! The main reason why we don't want to advertise it is because it will become very popular and the next time we go to Costa Rica & want to book a room there it will be full!
However, that is very selfish of us. We had such a great experience there and want others to be able to benefit as well, so here goes...
Everything was truly excellent: the location close to the airport & great restaurants, the very clean & tastefully decorated rooms, the beautiful gardens and quiet & safe surroundings, the pleasant service and staff, the full breakfast, the relaxing, family-style atmosphere, the welcoming and helpful hosts, Maguarita and Ad!!
We love nature and animals so especially appreciated the birds and all the pets.
We stayed at your place 2 nights only, but feel like we know you as family!!!
Thank you so much for your hospitality & generosity and for helping make our stay in Costa Rica so pleasant & memorable. Pura Vida & all the best to you and your family!
Catherine & Philippe G. & family, Montreal, Quebec, Canada 01 August 2010
Wow.. what a beautiful property. From the perfectly trimmed and cared for garden to the spotless cozy rooms, this bed and breakfast was a true highlight of our vacation.
Margarita was so sensitive to all our needs, and went to extremes to ensure we were happy guests. Not only did her family wake up prior to our flight at 5:00am to wave us good bye, they provided us with breakfast bags too. They even allowed us to entertain family and friends in their breakfast patio.
We would, without question, recommend this B&B to future Costa Rican explorers!
We hope to see Costa Rica again some day soon, and when we do, we will be sure to stay for a visit.
Candida Scott, and Danielle W., Ontario, Canada 23 July 2010
Just wanted to drop you a quick thank you for accomodating us on our quick stay at your bed and breakfast.
If we are ever in need of a place to stay in San Jose we will definately use your place again!!
Duane W., Alaska, USA 16 July 2010
GREAT PLACE TO STAY! IF you need a place to stay while entering or leaving CR, this is the winner.
Margaret is a wonderful host and the rooms are very very classy, newly constructed, tastefully upscale, and in a
beautifully landscaped setting away from the crowded city but very close to the airport.
We could have paid double and still felt like it was a good deal.
Terry, Pam, and Jared K., Santa Barbara, CA, USA 05 June 2010
Hello Ad and Margarita,
Just wanted to thank you both for the wonderful service and accomodations during the last couple of weeks.
Wishing you and your family blessings
Ben M. New York, USA, 04 June 2010
Dear Ad, Margaret and Lisette,
Thank-you so much for a fabulous stay at your B&B!!! You are all so welcoming to your guests, and so helpful arranging activities/directions, etc. We wish we could have stayed longer.
Your accomodations are superb, the breakfast is excellent, thank-you for the breakfast "to go" due to our very early flight!!
You have a tropical paradise with all the amenities, tennis, swimming pool,etc. We can't wait to return!!
Chad and Jeanette H. Montana, USA 12 April 2010
Dear Margret, we have just arrived home after almost 2 days of travelling.
Your room was the nicest we had in CR and we will recomend you to all our friends.
Best regards and thanks for everything
Alena, Heinz-Gerd and Teresa to your family, Germany 11 April 2010
Buenos de Canada Hello Margerita!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your B&B on Thursday March 18th. The service was great and so was the food.
Sincerely, Guy J. and friends, Canada 20 March 2010
Your places are Beautiful!!! Stayed at Jungle Villa 3/6/10-3/13/10 and Loved it!
Then stayed at your B&B in San Jose on 3/15/10. Wished I could have been there longer!
Everyone was so wonderful and the accomodations are outstanding! Thank You sooo much for such an Amazing stay!
Thanks again for your Hospitality and Incredible accomodations!!!
Levonne L., USA. 19 March 2010
The location of this B&B is ideal for arrival and departure into San Jose.
The owners are really friendly and helpful and we caught them speaking fluent Dutch, English and Spanish.
We rented a car and received GPS directly through them, half of the price the car rental company offers them for.
Pool area is relaxed and clean. Our first nights were in the vacation home, perfect for two couples or a family.
When we came back, we stayed in the red room. Even more spacious than the house and we really enjoyed the colored rooms.
Breakfast was plenty and Margarita even prepared a travel breakfast for us upon departure and a nice coffee at 4 am.
We highly recommend this place and can easily see ourselves coming back on our next visit to Costa Rica.
Froukje from Holland - 02 March 2010
Dear Ad & Margritta,
Pamela & I just wanted to thank you for all your help in making our arrival and departure in and out of Costa Rica so smooth.
Not only is La Margarita a lovely place to stay, but your assistance with local mobile phones, use of the internet, taxis, route planning and satellite navigation was absolutely invaluable.
When our UK mobiles had no connectivity you provided us with a local mobile that did work and we were so glad that we took your recommendation and rented a satnav/GPS from you - it probably saved our holiday and marriage on a number of occasions when the absence of road signs left us floundering.
If we come to CR again we will start and finish at La Margarita and ask you to make all the arrangements - including car rental.
Keep up the good work - Alan & Pamela M., Tadworth, UK

Hello to you all this fine day. The sisters, Don and me want to thank you for a wonderful time at your bed and breakfast.
We liked every minute we were at your place. We have told several people about your place.
We wish you all the best with your business.

Dear Ad & Margarita,
How are you? This is Wally. I stayed with you this last October with my son Josh.
I wanted to write and wish you a Merry Christmas!Josh and I enjoyed our stay with you folks very much.
I would love to come and see both of you again sometime.
I stayed at 5 different hotels and B&Bs on my last trip to Costa Rica
and I can honestly say that I enjoyed my stay with you folks the most of any of the places I stayed.
Ad, do you remember showing me how a website is designed? I enjoyed seeing that very much.
And I enjoyed our chats. I would like to send you a photo of Josh and I that Margarita took.
Is there another email address that I can send to you?
Oh, and I would NOT rent a car from Economy Renta A Car ever again.
They have hidden charges that they do not disclose when you sign the contract.
Well Christmas is soon upon us. I hope you have an enjoyable Christmas holiday!
Thanks again for a very enjoyable stay.
Wally S., 22 December 2009
The place where we are staying, Margarita's Airport B&B San Jose, is perfect ---
close to the airport, with plenty of dogs and cats for Audrey to pet, a pool of cool, cool water that we all enjoyed,
and a trampoline. There are lots of butterflies and flowers and tropical trees, and our room is delightful.
The view from the pool area is beautiful, with Volcan Poas across the valley, although partly hidden in clouds today.
Jay and Audrey are playing cards outside on the table on our terrace. Claire and Emma have been playing solitaire and
writing in their journals, and we're all starved and waiting for dinner which is being fixed by our hosts tonight.
Tomorrow is another early morning...we're catching a taxi at 6:15 am to the domestic airport in San Jose for our flight
down to Puerto Jimenez and our week at Casa Bambu. I don't think we'll have internet again for at least a week, but we'll
post again when we can.
13 December 2009
Ad and Margarita.....
I once again want to thank you for the WONDERFUL time Jenni and I spent an your place.
Both of you run an absolute paradise on earth and we really want you both to know how much Jenni and I enjoy staying there.
Jenni and I really feel at home there and we really cannot thank you enough for the both of us.
I can't wait until I can get back and stay there again....again....
thank you for making us feel like family and I can't wait until we see you again!
