Very convenient to the airport, shuttle service was on time and quick. Room was great especially the bed. Food service was good, but better options off campus. People were all friendly and courteous. Overall a pleasant stay.

We have stayed at this Courtyard over 25 times in the past 2 years. We live in Costa Rica but travel to the United States frequently Great service, friendly staff, secure parking and an airport shuttle that runs from 4 am until midnight.

Perfect for a one night stay. Free shuttle to the airport, just minutes away. Food and service awesome. Pool area was a bit blah, could use some plants or something, just a concrete boring area with a small pool.

I stayed at the Courtyard hotel the night before flying back to the UK. The service was excellent, the rooms spacious and comfortable. The food and drink within the hotel are quite are expensive but you have a number of options for eating just a short walk across from the hotel. The free shuttle is a bonus. I'd definitely recommend... More

The Courtyard Marriott is a global hotel chain who is absolutely keeping up with the times. This hotel in Alajela was just built a few years ago and the overall ambiance and operations shows. They love the environment, they love their customers, and they love comfort. We live in Guanacaste, Costa Rica and need to go to the big city... More

My flight was delayed- the airline booked this hotel for me. There is a convenient shuttle that will take you to and from the airport. The hotel is not fancy, but if you just need a place to sleep, it is not bad. There are restaurants nearby and you can walk to walmart. The hotel offers free wifi and the... More

We stayed here as a jumping off point at the beginning and end of our trip. For that, it's perfect. The airport is close, the shuttle is every 30 min and reliable and Graylines picks up and drops off from this hotel (as it does for many but not all area hotels). In addition, for a day trip into the... More

We stayed here twice in December 2014 as part of our Costa Rica vacation. The location is very close to the airport. The hotel itself is very modern and clean. I would definitely recommend it if you are in need of a nice, clean place to stay near the airport.
