I wouldnt have thought this hotel was going to be this nice. We booked it so we could stay there the night before we flew out to come home at the end of the vacation. If we would have known, we'd have stayed here a couple more days. Nice rooms, bigger resort than it looks, nice resturants, a casino, and... More

Our flight into San Jose wasn't scheduled to arrive until 9:00pm, so when our travel agent booked us a room at the Doubletree Cariari we assumed it would be a great place to sleep for the night before our driver picked us up. We were very pleasantly surprised, this is a beautiful hotel with great amenities. While I wouldn't stay... More

We stayed four nights here and enjoyed it very much. The staff was friendly, attentive and helpful. We took two tours that we booked through the hotel and both were fabulous and very well priced. The food in the restaurant and room service was excellent and more than you can eat. Computers were available for use in the lobby. Comfortable... More

Situated between the International Airport and San Jose, the Doubletree Cariari is a hidden beauty. Low (only two floors) and built in the Spanish style, the open circular architecture provides the feeling of an oasis in the midst of all the hustle and bustle of a national capitol.
