We arrived in San Jose, but our luggage did not. Our resort was a good 3 hours away and rather than count on American Airlines delivering decided to spend the night and pick it up ourselves. First checked out the Courtyard Airport. We were greeted at the front desk by Antonio. Always nice to find a guy like him who... More

We've stayed here for one night in November and another in April. Something has changed with management over this time. Service was much better in November. If you're a North American looking for creature comforts of home, this place is ok. For a new hotel, there are a number of minor annoyances such as leaking toilets and broken shower doors.... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It's near the airport, but one doesn't hear the planes. The checking was fast and the staff...all of them.. are friendly and helpful. The parking is secure. The rooms are big. The beds are a bit firm, but comfortable with big fluffy pillows. Now for the small issues. The TV kept turning off... More

Especially after 10 days of hit and miss traveling around CR, it was really nice to anticipate clean sheets and dependable service, and we got both. Very well located for airport travel. Right next to a Walmart, which was entertaining for 45 minutes (to see which products are different, and which are the same from USA Walmarts). The Walmart is... More

Wonderful place to stay if you have an early flight home. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Only 5 minute shuttle ride to the Airport. Shuttle starts at 4:30 AM. Nice bar with outdoor seating area. Short walk to several restaurants. For a nominal fee you can fill out your exit form saving you one line you would need to... More

Friendly staff, quiet (heard no planes) and comfy rooms and very handily 5 mins from airport with the shuttle leaving every 30 mins 24/7 I believe. Also near some restaurants and Walmart so very handy. We had absolutely no complaints-there are even laundry facilities which is great to return home with clean clothes.

We stayed the on the last night in Costa Rica. It's another hotel near the airport, and we haven't use most of its facilities, but they looked very good (had a glance of the fitness room, which seemed very decently equipped), we didn't even have the chance to try the breakfast. The rooms are very comfortable, great bed and all... More

We really enjoyed this hotel - it was nice, the staff was very friendly and breakfast was amazing - we were very well accommodated in terms of drinks and had table service! The rooms were huge and nicely decorated with modern decor. The bathroom also had a tub for a nice pre-flight soak. The fitness room and pool were also... More

We stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott San Jose Airport Alajuela two weeks ago before returning home back to Denver. The location is great, very close to the airport and they have a free shuttle.

You have to read the Marriott website carefully to understand what you pay for. Overall advertisements says one thing but look at the room details and you'll find that they charge extra for different things, like breakfast. Of all the places we stayed in Costa Rica, staff here was at least helpful, not complaining, as they were helpful but we... More
