I just got back from a trip to Costa Rica. For most of the time I rented an apartment a half hour away from the airport. My Spanish isn't great so I wanted to be sure I could orient myself to the place and my plans before getting too far away from fluent English speakers. The Courtyard Marriott was a... More

Our hotel room was very clean. All hotel personnel were kind and helpful, even with a 1:30am arrival. Location was ideal and service great.

This hotel is great and convenient for early flight times. Best dirty martinis at the bar and great gym. Only complaint is one coffee mug in the room, and one reg and one decaf pouch of coffee. My suggestion....get the little 4 pot coffee maker, most people are two to a room.

The hotel has a fancy lobby and the cleaning staff were very helpful and polite. It's right next to Wal-Mart and some restaurants, so you can walk without having to take a taxi. The rooms were large, but the mattresses are so stiff you could feel the springs in them. The water pressure was fine in the evenings, but if... More

All of the staff was pleasant and welcoming especially Jose. I would definitely stay here again...Comfortable bed mattress could be softer. Nice size room, very clean. Pretty decent food across the parking lot. Shower water pressure could be stronger and water could be hotter, it was lukewarm. Costa Rica is awesome!!!!!!!
