This is our second time staying at this hotel upon our departure from San Jose. The location is excellent. Only 15 minutes or so from the International Airport. This is a beautiful spanish colonial hotel. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. They have two amazing pools (one heated and one not heated). The rooms are very nice with extremely... More

I've come to Costa Rica on average once a year for the past ten years as my inlaws retired here. This is the most beautiful hotel I have found in San Jose. Whoever designed this place is an artist. The entire hotel is done in the most beautiful Costa Rican style with tremendous attention to detail. The beds and pillows... More

Erica, You are a real hotel connoisseur! Our property was designed by one of the best renowned architectural firms in Costa Rica, Zurcher arquitectos, they have vast experience in Hotel and Resort projects. The property is inspired in a XVI colonial state located in a 30 hectare coffee plantation. The ceiling was painted by Lourdes Gamboa. We put the best... More

Very solid hotel. Friendly staff and beautiful lobby (although large parts of it were under construction when I was there). I had a nice view of the golf course from my room. The room itself was small and fairly basic but decently clean. Being in the tropics means you'll deal with bugs everywhere, and this place is no exception but... More

Great Hotel and incredible customer service. San Jose is not one of my favorite cities and this hotel is pretty close to San Jose and real close to the airport but once you are at the hotel you don't feel like you are even close to either. The hotel is very nice especially the grounds which includes an incredible pool... More

We have stayed at many top hotels but few can compare to this Marriott. The property is beautiful and extremely convenient to SJO airport. You will never get treated better by any management or staff. They do everything to make you feel welcome- without ever coming off phony like it is just their job to do that. My husband is... More

I was in San Jose for business and spent my last night at the hotel. It was great! The grounds are beautiful! The pool area is beautiful! Honestly, my meal though was just ok. The room was also very nice...it opened right out onto the pool area. Would definitely stay there again!
