We chose this hotel because we had Marriott points; we were expecting just an American chain hotel, but this is a pretty spot with a nice colonial feeling to it and great views. It's a beautiful property with coffee plants out front, a gorgeous pool, and trees full of bright green red-lored parrots. The service was excellent, and the rooms... More

This was our 7th trip to Costa Rica, but first time to stay at this hotel. Upon arrival, the air conditioner wasn't working in our room. A repair was quickly made, but 2 days later it broke again. We were told there was another room so we packed up and brought our bags to the lobby only to be told... More

Business trips to San Jose always include a stay at the Marriott, this past one was no different. As always the staff and service were excellent and the room was clean and neat. Because my company has travelers here often we usually get an upgraded room. Mine was off the back of the facility overlooking the grounds with a covered... More

We visited this hotel in February of 2013 after a three week adventure in Costa Rica. Most of the trip we traveled without an itinerary so at the end of the trip we were tired and in need of some rest and relaxation. This hotel is beautiful and the room was very nice, I highly recommend the Spa as well.... More

My girlfriend and I spent our Last Day of a roundtrip through Costa Rica here. We enjoyed ist very much. If you travel to the rainforest and beaches be aware that the dress code at the Marriott is a bit more elegant. We ate at the Hotel restaurant and had the salmon. It was very tasty and the service was... More

Overall good stay, good service, good gym, good pool (water too cold), good jacuzzi. Fair price ifyou have a corporate rate, if not too expensive. Areas for improvement: corridors too noisy!! Very difficult to sleep when people talk in the corridors... Not to mention when guests walk with their carry ons... You can hear those wheels on the corridor tiles!!

We chose the Marriott for our last night in San Jose for its close proximity to the airport. In that regard, it was a good choice. They provide a taxi service at the hotel which was easily able to accommodate our party of seven and lots of luggage. The airport was only about 15-20 minutes away. The hotel was very... More

Nice details all over around the property. It have several and good restaurants. The only con it's that rates are a lot higher than those for similar properties in Central America; perhaps, Costa Rica hotel rates are the expensive ones in the region.

We stayed here for two single nights on either side of a trip to the Osa Peninsula. It was great having a clean, easy hotel to re-pack and get organized for our jungle expedition. I recommend this hotel for a first or last night around airport travel. Super convenient to the International one, and only about 15-20 minutes by cab... More

After spending three nights in Manuel Antonio, we stayed at the Marriott to be close to the San Jose airport before flying out the next morning. The location is excellent for that purpose, only a couple miles to the airport. The hotel is very large with a lovely pool area and a nice small walkway around the grounds. An excellent... More
