We stayed here on our first night in Costa Rica. We had what seemed like one of the few rooms without a balcony, which was a little disappointing. We were also kind of far from the restaurants and pool area. It didn't seem like there were many other leisure travelers there, mostly business. They did have a nice looking business... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night because it was close to both airports in San Jose during our 10 day honeymoon. The hotel is beautiful and has "open air" walkways to were beautiful. When we checked in we were greeted with warm cookies and were then told that we had been given the Honeymoon Suite!!... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights before starting a group tour. Our tour operator selected it because it is close to the airport, but we found it to be much more than just someplace to crash before or after a flight. Although the exterior is underwhelming, the hotel rooms and facilities are quite attractive. The huge lobby is... More

Nice hotel, nice room. Restaurant was ok. Service wasn't too friendly though. We stayed here as it's close to the San Jose airport.

My company sponsored a small conference here for our Latin America customers. Overall the hotel was very nice. My room was very large and the bed was very comfortable. There was a little noise early one AM - it sounded like someone buffing a floor - but overall it was pretty quiet. There really wasn't anything to nitpick. The staff... More

We stayed one night after flying in before driving up into rainforest areas. Staff were helpful (in fact one housekeeper went out of her way to find towels for the pool--which were located at the bar.) Very modern amenities and our room had a patio which was a lovely way to unwind on a warm night. Executive lounge staff especially... More

We had an early morning flight and chose this hotel because it's ten minutes to San Jose airport. The hotel has a nice environment and friendly staff. The food and service was great at the open-air, poolside restaurant. The ceviche was delicious.

I have stayed at the Doubletree Cariari several times over the last two years. I keep returning because of the service, comfortable rooms and fantastic location. The front desk staff are so friendly and accommodating. The guest service manager personally greeted me in the lobby and she is so welcoming. She recommended a wonderful argentine steakhouse and arranged for transportation... More

Hotel was fine until we received an alert that our American Express card had been used without the card being present. We had given them our credit card for incidentals as our room had been prepaid. Thankfully, we received the alert so we could close the account which is a bit of a pain as we are in the midst... More

We spent three separate nights at this facility and had nothing but praise for the rooms, food, and service. On our first evening, tired from travel, we slipped into the restaurant for a late dinner. The meal was fantastic, service above and beyond, and we drifted back to our room. There was our server knocking on our door. I had... More
