My wife and I stayed for a week during April. The front desk was very friendly and accommodating, in my opinion they were some of the best front desk staff I have met. The bar was a lot of fun especially on nights when they have live music playing. Our bartender introduced us to the Guaro Sour and it has... More

Stayed here for a week long training and the hotel struck a good balance for us. Conference room facilities were average, but felt more depressing given the nice pool and atmosphere just outside. The casino and open air walkways to rooms also contributed to the resort feel. Breakfast was buffet style and included typical Costa Rican breakfast dishes as well... More

This hotel is near the airport and just outside San Jose. There is a market and restaurants a block away. The rooms and facilities are clean and look better than the pictures on their web site. I had trouble with the front desk on both my stays over price. The first time, the manager felt my discount was too great... More

We had stayed at this property about 5 yrs ago when it was run by Melia, and remembered it fondly, so we booked it for one night in the middle of our two weeks travel. The property (common areas) has been well maintained and has a nice resort feel to it. The open air lobby is very nice to sit... More

The Double Tree Cariari is like a totally different world in San Jose. The hotel is set off the road, the the landscaping is arranged so that once you're in the hotel, you cannot hear or see the rest of San Jose. The rooms are nice, and the hotel is beautiful. The breakfast buffet is amazing! Read more about this... More

Was in town for business for the week and the Double Tree was a very comfortable place to be. The staff was amazing and could not have been nicer. Couldn't have picked a more comfortable hotel to relax at after a long day at work. Would stay here again if needed.
