We took a taxi from the bus station to the Marriott and the taxi driver told us it would cost us $20US. When we arrived to the Marriott - the taxi driver insisted we owed him $34US. We walked away from the driver and had the police called. Jose at the front desk came to our rescue and asking the... More

Hotel is ok. Pretty nice by CR standards. Pool area is weak: basically not a pool. Gym is good size. Beds are not quite as luxurious as US Courtyards. Breakfast us ok. Not as extensive as it should be for the money. Convenient to highway and airport. It's really a 3.5 stars.

I stayed one night as our flights arrived at 1 am. The room was very nice as was the shower. The breakfast is not included and I would suggest eating at the walmart next door. It sounds strange but near the bakery is a restaurant with dining area! Also walmart has an atm. The hotel shuttle doesn't run at 1... More

We stayed one night in advance of a cruise and really enjoyed the convenience of this hotel. The location allowed us to avoid the long commute into the downtown area. It was modern, very clean and accessible via their complementary shuttle service. Just a note to those who think they can walk to this hotel; even though it is quite... More

We got a very good room rate on a special online deal, so took a chance on this new(ish) airport hotel. It's pleasant, & fairly upscale. Only open a couple of years, according to our driver, so everything is modern & clean. It's obvious their core business is servicing travelers to & from the international airport, which is nearby. They... More

1. Qualified rooms 2. Next to Walmart, which has very fare prices of everything you need out of my personal experience 3. Next to the airport, offering free transfer to the airport, which is good for the transfer stay, especially in the late night
