We stayed in Costa Rica for about a week and made our base the Marriott Hotel in San Jose. A typical Marriott property in an area similar to a suburban US city - where everyone speaks Spanish instead of English. It was hard to think we were not in the US - which is either good or bad depending on... More

This hotel had THE best breakfast buffet and what a great view to enjoy it with. Great place! Service and hotel were awesome. Stayed for business and we were in the conference rooms for a few days. Everything was well appointed and they catered to our every need. Rooms were clean and quiet too.

We have been going to Costa Rica each year for 8 years and we always spend a few nights at this Marriott. The location, grounds and facilities are excellent. But what keeps us coming back are the wonderful people who go out of their way to help us. A good example is Sandra who works in the restaurant and remembers... More

This hotel gets 3.5 stars. Pros: Beautiful setting, nicely appointed rooms, great amenities. Cons: For a mid-to-higher price hotel, some items were just too expensive Overall: If you are traveling to Costa Rica (San Jose) and don't want to venture to far afield, this is a decent choice. There is a distinct local flavor but it is an American hotel... More

My wife and I spent one night here directly after our flight. The hotel was very close to the airport. We were greeted by numerous friendly and helpful staff. The hotel itself is beautifully designed and maintained very well. There is not much nearby for tourists and seems to be used primarily for business travelers. Given that we decided to... More

Title pretty much says it all. Lovely property. 3.5 stars but bumping up for overall ambiance and service. Located behind Bridgestone tire plant; you can't see it once you're in the property, but that gives you an idea of the area. The main pool area was very nice, but always crowded and noisy. Our room smelled awful, mildew smell. I... More

I've been traveling to Costa Rica for 5 years every three months for business. I used to stay at the Courtyard by Hilton not to far from the Marriot; and the company decided to move us to the Marriott. It has been one of the best decisions made. The environment, area, view and nature is certainly much better. The rooms... More

I usually stay at this hotel after a long day getting to Costa Rica. It's close to the airport and surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds. The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere, a hacienda style architecture which I really like, but some of the rooms are ready for some renovation. It's a great place to stay either upon arrival or...
