I have stayed at this hotel many times over the last 10 years. They employees at this property really know how to treat guests. The bellmen not only assist with your luggage, but will assist you in reserving a taxi, picking you up and getting you back to the airport. You can even e-mail the hotel in advance and request...

Perfect for a night at the beginning or end of a trip to Costa Rica. Wouldn't spend more than the minimal hours in San Jose.

This was our second visit to this hotel, both stop overs on the way in/out of Costa Rica- one in 2011 and one late Feb. 2012. The first visit was OK- we got in late, left early. No real issues. This time- wow, what a disappointment. We had more time in the room and hotel and noticed a lot more.... More

Since this hotel is located close to the airport, we decided to stay here our first night after arriving on a late flight. We were pleased with our choice. The bellmen parked our car in a private lot and brought our bags quickly to our room. The poolside bar was open late for our needed on-arrival drink. The tropical landscaping... More

A really good quality international hotel at a reasonable price with a bit of character about it.. Good location near the airport and transport ino the city. Great place to stay for a few days before or after touring Costa Rica with a choice of local restaurants in addition to those in the hotel. Friendly staff, good food, excellent rooms,... More

Excellent check in, prompt pick up at the airport and the driver was very accommodating with waiting for an additional couple (whose plane was later than ours) to join us at the airport. Request a room that faces the swimming pool because the tropical garden setting is very beautiful. The morning breakfast buffet is scrumptious and the dinners were superb.... More

This was chosen for us by travel company whose tour we were taking, probably because of proximity to San Jose airport. It is basically a small resort with large outdoor pool and casino. As a hotel it wasn't as good as I expected for the brand. We got a ground floor room so had a back door directly to the... More

I stayed at the Cariari while on a vacation to Costa Rica. The hotel is friendly, has an "outdoorsy" feeling since the hallways are outside. The pool and spa were great as was the food in the restaurant. While the price for food was considered high by some, it is in line with most restaurants, but more expensive than the... More

Mixing business with pleasure this hotel was great for making daily meetings with their shuttle service. Also a great place to chill during my precious down time. Breakfast buffet has the best fresh fruit, omlets and waffles and coffee anywhere. Mini bar is a bit expensive, but there is a great little market just a 2 minute walk from front... More
