Double Tree Cariari is quite a confortable place to stay. Its colonial style in the green of beautiful trees, bushes and flowers create the right ambiance to make a traveller feel cosy and enjoy any minutes of brake from the work

I stayed there a few weeks and it was very pleasant, as this hotel is a lovely, quiet and warm place, with very friendly and funny staff. The hotel is located halfway between the airport and the city. It is just 10 minutes away by walk from a mall.

Great hotel to stay for business or personal. Welcoming staff, delicious food, clean rooms, pool and hot tub. Easy location off the Pan American and a quick drive from SJO. Attended parking lot adjacent to the hotel.

It was a good experience staying here. Very reasonable price too for an all inclusive. Of course, you don't get to see much of Costa Rica, but the pools here are beautiful. Also, there are so many cocktails to choose from with friendly staff everywhere. Overall, I loved the food, but I was a little disappointed that the snack bar... More

We stayed for one night on our last night in Costa Rica. What a mistake. We were "upgraded" to a balcony pool view room. We have two kids and our room turned out to look over the bar by the pool which is open until midnight. It was very loud and difficult for our kids to go to sleep. Also... More

I stayed her for one night in April of 2015. I was emailed in advance by Ms. Gonzalez regarding an airport pickup with a van which I chose to take advantage of as it was my first time in Costa Rica. The cost was $20. A standard meter taxi may have been $10-12 ( which I found out later) but... More

The hotel is pretty close to the airport which made it handy for an early morning flight. I've stayed at this hotel a few times but realized I never wrote a review! The property is pretty big with 3 stories of rooms. The rooms themselves are really big (I've had both big single rooms and huge suites). The beds are... More

We spent the first night of our vacation here after a long day of travel to CR. Loved the open feel. Beautiful hardwood, rocks and stone. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The buffet breakfast was huge with lots of costa rican choices. Loved the outside bar... Highly recommend a trip to the central market.

This hotel is a wonderful experience. The breakfast buffet is to die for. The rooms are clean well maintained. The ease of check in and out are wonderful, not that you want to leave. The warm cookie on check in is a wonderful treat.
