We arrived at the airport in San Jose on time. Our luggage came out timely and customs was a breeze. When we got outside, there were signs everywhere trying to get you to go with them. We saw a Marriott sign and thought that we found out guy. A few steps further, a gentleman had our names on the sign... More

This beautiful hotel is a great place to stay when coming or going from San Jose. We stayed here on our way to and from Osa and it was perfect for relaxing following a hectic day of travel. We loved the open air design and gorgeous architecture and decor. The pools are beautiful. The service was very friendly and professional.... More

This is a beautiful, welcoming hotel, with colonial architecture mid-way between the airport and San Jose. From the airport pick-up, you can sense the professionalism and friendliness of its staff. One person deserves special mention. Her name is Vera Garcia, a waitress at the terrace where meals are served, overlooking the Cordillera and manicured gold course. Vera was friendly and... More

This hotel is an excellent place to stay. As my family and I have found out throughout our trip, the people here are extremely kind, and this applies to those at the Marriott too. The grounds and the pool here are absolutely beautiful, and the rooms are perfect sized and clean, however, they could use a little updating, but nothing... More

We moved to Costa Rica six years ago so have stayed so many times at this fantastic hotel, can't even count them any more. Several stays when we were coming down to meet a Realtor, to look at various properties and neighborhoods to decide where to settle here and always chose to stay at this gorgeous Marriott. Then since moving... More

The hotel is a very pleasant one, with comfortable amenities and in a nice location, close to San Jose airport, and not far from the centre of town either. It has a good gift shop, and a nice Peruvian restaurant, La Isabela, that serves wonderful ceviches (a word: each dish is easily enough for two!). One point: the hotel should... More

If you're staying in San Jose and/or are looking for a hotel near the airport look no further. This is a great hotel. The service is impeccable. There isn't much to do near the hotel. We used TAM Travel to book trips to Manuel Antonio and Arenal/zip lining/hot springs. WARNINGS: If you plan to use this tour company (located onsite... More

Overall we had a very nice stay and a great vacation, but this hotel has two glaring weaknesses. The service at Bar 10 which also serves the pool area is extremely slow. We complained, asked to see the General Manager of the Hotel only got to talk with the Food and Beverage Manager and it improved little duriing our stay.... More

After a week in another part of Costa Rica, somewhat roughing it. We were looking forward to a hot shower, a comfy clean bed and a good meal...we found all at this hotel. A beautiful site to drive into..no problem with check in until (and a slight issue) our first room was in a dark lower floor with a view... More

Nice Spanish style, beautiful grounds. Nice oasis to come back to after all day excursions. Food was good, pool area very nice. The room was spacious, overlooked the pool. Only negative I could say was the bed was too low and too hard. Would recommend it and be happy to come back.
