Great modern Courtyard Marriott - clean rooms with big bathrooms, large living area and a mini-fridge / coffee station. Free shuttle to and from the airport is such a great service since airport is less than 5 minutes (highway) - by the way, please tip these shuttle drivers as you would a cab driver. Since it caters to airport guests,... More

It's only a few minutes drive from the airport and the free shuttle means it's no hassle at all. Staff are efficient and professional and the place has good facilities, though the pool is tiny. The bland bar/restaurant lacks character but there is a good selection of Latin American restaurants just opposite the hotel. Rooms are pretty standard but clean,... More

We stayed on the last leg of our 15 day tour of Costa Rica. We stayed from August 6 - August 8. The hotel's location is the best to catch a flight out of the San Jose airport. You are literally separated by the highway. Even though you are close to the airport we had 2 great nights sleeping, we... More

We spend the night before our flight out of Costa Rica. Rooms are brand new, big and well equipped. Stuff is friendly and tried to help in any question we had. Around the hotel there few restaurants to choose from and the hotel restaurant also offered good selection that suited adults and kids. Free shuttle tithe airport.

We stayed here the day we arrived as we came in late, and it is very convenient for the airport and has an excellent shuttle service. The room was very clean and comfortable and the staff very helpful. But it doesn't have a restaurant, which in my opinion, is a major inconvenience for an airport hotel. If this isn't an... More

Dear Guest: Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback during your experience in our hotel, I'm very much concern that you haven't had the opportunity to use our onsite restaurant; serving local and international food, our buffet breakfast starts at 04:00 am.

We stayed here the night before our flight out and it was perfect. We were able to arrange for our rental car to be picked up here so we were happy to be able to walk to various spots as we no longer had our car. There is a little strip mall type place with 5 or 6 restaurants right... More

Very convenient to the airport--Walmart and small shopping center with restaurant next door. Very comfortable rooms with nice amenities. Staff is very pleasant except for one in the breakfast area that "hovers" way too much! We also hosted a seminar and they did a superb job with set up and food. The pool area leaves much to be desired--they need... More

I've been to Costa Rica 8 times and have tried all the airport hotels (except B&B's). This one takes the prize as top choice! It is super convenient, has practically everything you would need or want for a night in or out of San Jose, and you can even pay the exit tax at the reception thus avoiding the line... More

Diana greeted my family with a wonderful smile throughout our short stay. It is everything you expect from a Marriott, clean, professional, lots of attention to the necessities of a traveler. There's a pool, gym, and laundry machines (much needed after a two week stay in Costa Rica). Free shuttle to the airport every 30 minutes. The airport is across... More
