Beautiful lobby and htoel, but at times the front desk seemed populated by novices: one of our two keys was for a different room than ours, and the second day none of the group’s keys worked. When told, the front desk tried to tell us we were not using the key cards correctly, but then they corrected their error. Rooms... More

I've stayed at this hotel many times on business trips. Absolutely love the layout and the way nature seems to surround the rooms even from the inside. Best rooms are top floor overlooking the pool. The view is fantastic. Breakfast by the pool is superb. The food is fantastic...My favorite dish is the saffron salmon. Delicious! The welcome cookies are... More

We arrived late night into San Jose and also had an early morning departure. Originally we thought of staying at the Hampton Inn or one of the other hotels with airport shuttles. However I am glad we didn't because the Double Tree Cariari is am amazing option for convenience, comfort as well as giving you the feeling that you made... More

Overall a nice hotel, rooms a little small but very well equipped with coffee, trouser press, ironing board tv etc as you would expect from a Hilton airport conference centre type hotel. Now the not so good - stayed here at start and end of the tour, check in at start was a little slow... More

I've always found DoubleTree hotels to be very nice properties, and this one is no exception. However, the staff at this hotel seems to be extra special and truly seem to enjoy making your experience a wonderful one.

We stayed here on our way in and out of Costa Rica. Very friendly and accommodating staff and close to the airport. The outdoor pool is lovely but tends to be cold. The casino was a nice perk, although I can't say I came out ahead. The breakfast spread is nice - get it if it is included but perhaps... More

We stayed here our final night in Costa Rica. The hotel is very convenient to the airport and even though it is right off the main highway you do not notice once you are in the hotel. The spacious room and incredibly comfortable bed, nice tv, big bathroom and huge balcony were the best we had in Costa Rica. The... More

We stayed 1 night here because of an early flight out of San Jose. This is a pleasant hotel with nice pool area, good gym and a nice restaurant. All you could want for an airport hotel. There were taxis available at 4am so no problem in getting to airport (10 mins away).

I had a nice stay at the end of our vacation at this hotel. The service was very good, staff was friendly, rooms were clean and bed was comfortable. The restaurant was nice and pool area was inviting. Several restaurants were within walking distance including the newly opened Hard Rock Cafe. I would stay here again.
